As you probably guessed, we designed this gorgeous knob & plate for a client in Naples, Florida. It’s great to see how far our collection of custom cabinet hardware has grown and continues to grow.

new reeded drawer pull | burnished light antique brass

Posted on January 9th, by gbettenhausen in Recent Projects. No Comments

We have added another member to the “Mayer” hardware family! ( family photos below )

To produce this pull, a professional sculptor brought our design ideas to life by creating a scaled prototype which we later replicated in solid brass through casting. This process really helped us hone in on sizing and detail decisions you can’t commit to on paper. Happy Hardware!
