etagere cabinet latch

Posted on July 5th, by gbettenhausen in Recent Projects. No Comments

 

 

Our Etagere cabinet latch was inspired by traditional latch details found in latches dating from the turn of the last century. We love the exposed screws and crisp corners. There is no latch on the market today that has such a fine attention to quality. Look at our www.projectreadycabinethardware.com website for some other project ready hardware. We look forward to working on your project.

These knobs were inspired by creative mastermind Howard Van Doren Shaw. The Chicago architect was not only known for his beautiful designs, but also as a leader in the American Craftsman movement.

cremone mechanisms

These cremone mechanisms were made up for a local project in Lake Forest, Illinois.  The kitchen spaces were all finished in polished nickel while the other areas were un-lacquered brass.  Our cremone hardware collection has been a big hit, even on cabinetry.

This practical way of protecting your wood cabinets is also very great looking.  We always get compliments on this little detail so plan ahead to include it on your next project.  Just a simple bar is used to protect your cabinetry from damage at the dishwasher and trash drawer.  Better yet do them on all of your drawers for a mod look!

Here is our mod appliance pull (available in several sizes) on a walnut appliance panel.  Because we manufacture our hardware to order you can specify the exact length of your pull.  We have even done kitchen refresher projects and used existing holes in millwork.

People always say that our hardware is like jewelry when they visit our shop in Wilmette.  I think you can tell from this photo that this is true.  A great use of olive knuckle hinges and a polished nickel rim lock.
