We love these two new options for mirror rosettes that are a bit more custom feeling than some of the standard items on the market. The turned rosette has a clean art deco feel while the other has a more traditional feel. Both are made in house right here in Wilmette.
This stunning lever was designed in collaboration with a Palm Beach architect. The lever has a cast grip and turned shank and rosette. We can cast the lever in both brass and bronze depending on final finish selection. If you want hardware that is made in the US by a team of craftsman that are driven by quality give us a call!
This french deco detailed apartment in Chicago screamed out for our americus knob. This french classic is one of our favorites. So fun to work with a local client and NY architect on this project.
Here is a great example of a French moderne lever. Our sculptor worked with a local architect to design the lever and rosette. These gems will be installed in a Chicago apartment very soon. All of the sculpting, pattern making, and foundry work was all completed in house in our shop in Wilmette. If you are ever in town and want to get a glimpse of how hardware is fabricated and finished let us know!
Utilizing crisp clean lines & concealed mounts in each design, the Wilmette Hardware mod collection has made it’s impression as one of our more thoroughly developed hardware collections.

This neoclassical 1910 home was brought back to life with architect Gerry Smith leading the charge.
Wilmette Hardware had the pleasure of providing the unlacquered brass drawer & cabinet hardware you see throughout the kitchen. We also took great care in the refinishing of the pantry door pull, original to the house. Gerry, along with the other parties involved, did a fantastic job restoring the home while maintaining many of it’s historical characteristics.
Below are a few more photos showing off the restored home with hardware installed.

Our custom medford drawer pull has definitely become a client favorite.
Throughout this increase in interest, we’ve designed and placed different sizes into production to accommodate for different areas of application.
Ranging in sizes from 4″ up to 11″ in length, it is really neat to see how each size pull is applied to various projects.

Here is the first batch of door knobs we put into production for a residence in Wayzata, Minnestota.
Working with this wonderful client, we started with a design, drew out the knob with dimensions, made some edits along the way, then brought it to life by 3-D printing and presenting a prototype for their final approval.
One of the great pioneers of modern architecture, German architect Walter Gropius, inspires the ongoing development of Wilmette Hardware’s own Gropius custom hardware collection.
We recently introduced a new member to our Gropius hardware family with the production of the Gropius t-pull. The design characteristics of this t-pull closely resemble those of our Gropius drawer pull, and looks extraordinary when mounted vertically on cabinet doors and drawers. We really look forward to applying this custom cabinet pull to projects in the near future.
The Westminster lever has quickly become a client favorite. It’s unique and elegant octagonal detail descending from the end of the lever all the way into the base, beautifully shows off it’s particular finish. Accompanied by it’s keyhole cover and turn piece, this hardware collection can be killer. Below you will see more of these Westminster levers taking on their respective finish.

Here is our cut sheet for a vertical rim lock that can be surface mounted to either the interior or exterior side of an entry door. Any knob can used for both the interior and exterior sides of the set which is made complete with a skeleton key for locking.
Rim locks were made popular in the 18th and 19th centuries and have been utilized since to maintain that early vintage look. This particular rim lock is taller than it is wide, apart from the traditional style which takes up more door lengthwise.
