Day 674's new favorite
Man, I love a good door knob (nerd alert!). Which is how I found myself making friends with the good folks of Sun Valley Bronze at the Kitchen and Bath Industry Show last week. I'm not sure what bronze door hardware has to do with kitchens and baths (except that kitchens and baths have doors), but I didn't care. This stuff was good.
This is real hardware folks, and you can't buy it at Lowe's. I have no idea how much it costs, either (no one talks cost at K/BIS!) but, like I said, it's good. Nice and heavy, and will look better with age.
I don't often use the words "contemporary" and "favorite" in the same sentence, but there's a first time for everything, and the Contemporary Collection is officially my favorite. Simple and clean, but then, you can't get more "traditional" than bronze -- it's the best of both worlds, I think. And don't even get me started on the finishes!
