The Craftmanship and Artistry of Hardware Renaissance

Our featured vendor for the month of June is Hardware Renaissance. With over a decade of handcrafted designs, Hardware Renaissance’s pieces are created with a focus on sustainability and, as their motto states, they offer a level of craftsmanship “like no other.” Hardware Renaissance continues to produce hardware in solid bronze and hand forged iron with unique, one of a kind, high quality designs that speak to a variety of aesthetics. Unlike many other lines, they offer authentic pieces made to order and crafted by seasoned blacksmiths.

Hand Forged Iron

 

We love this designer line because they produce authentic hand forged iron hardware, which is extremely rare, and hard to find in the marketplace. The handmade craftsmanship is impeccable and the hardware dons beautiful patinas with distinct unique looks. All their patinas are hand applied and artistic, not the standard options in the market. They also offer traditional as well as unique rustic-modern designs, and the hardware is available for all types of doors and cabinets.

Patinas and Lines

Hardware Renaissance’s patinas are custom and original to their products, differing from most historical references of patinas. Some of our favorite patinas include the Navajo Silver, which is a mix of silver and gold tones, the Sonora Red which resembles red tones of the west, and Khaki– a mocha toned patina.  Hardware Renaissance has many beautiful lines but their top sellers include the Milan Collection in Bronze, the Grande Manhattan in Bronze (with unique hand-textured bronze inlays), and the hand forged collection, Normandy.

Customization

Another thing we love about this line is the fact that you can get a piece exactly the way you want it. Hardware Renaissance pieces are custom made to order, resulting in your hardware being handmade by professional blacksmiths, or cast by expert bronze pattern makers, to your exact specifications. This allows for customization that typically cannot be offered by other companies.
