Designing Details ~

Designers often use details to make a statement. When determining what precisely could set a certain tone  for a piece of fine furniture or kitchen cabinets, the solution is often hardware. Hardware is by far one of the simplest ways to transform a standard chest into a significant statement piece to welcome guests into your foyer or express your personality in the kitchen on your cabinetry.  As a designer, I have always had a passion for beautifully crafted hardware. I consider hardware the jewelry of your home. Sometimes just the hunt is a thrill. Well, now I won’t have to hunt too far.

If you’ve been following Chatti Patti’s escapades in London during the recent BlogTour, most likely you’ve noted that the sponsors were all about luxury and great design. From beginning to end.

Enter Du Verre Hardware, a company that produces environmentally friendly designer knobs and pulls. With a long and impressive list of Designers such as Clodagh, Goodman  & Charlton, Jeff Goodman and Erin Adams with backgrounds in various disciplines, who lend their expertise, creativity and signature to product development, it’s no wonder the collections of  Du Verre are used around the world in hotel chains such as The Hilton Hotels and Resorts, Hyatt Hotels and Resorts, Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts, Ritz Carleton Hotels and Gettys to name just a few!

What are some of the characteristics of Du Verre Hardware that make it so unique?

  • Each piece is finished by hand,which may result in small variations in the finished product, but we designers love that!

  • All the hardware is made from recycled aluminum. ~ yes, I know that’s hard to believe by looking at these beautiful photos, but they are green. Read more here.

And last but not least, are these incredible small knobs.  I love the ones on the upper right so much, I want them for cufflinks for my husband!
