An indisputable hallmark of well-done dwellings is visual cohesion. Through colours, materials and forms, virtually every detail in such abodes combines harmoniously with those around it, while contributing — often unobtrusively — to a strong overall effect that works as one.
Paying due attention to the fundamental, functional features of your home will help you to create a united front, and among these elements, your door handles are an item you can easily elevate. Makers of some of the best around, Invercargill’s Windsor Architectural Hardware have been honing their craft for close to 40 years, ever evolving to deliver interesting innovations and updates. The latest we’re loving is this new lever style the family business has added to its solid-brass Nido range. Now with linear knurling, it’s a look that lends weight to the reeded glass and fluted shapes that have been proving popular in interiors, adding a layer of visual connection you can touch.
Adjusted by the millimetre during the design phase to get the look and ergonomic feel just right, the new linear knurled Nido style comes in longplate (main image) and rose (above) versions for use inside and out. Select from four colours — Matt Satin Brass (main image), Graphite Nickel, Matt Black and Brushed Nickel — and accentuate the knurl with handcrafted living finishes (above, from top) Roman Brass and Dark Roman Brass.
Bring your home together bit by bit by identifying the must-haves and components you encounter daily and choosing versions that have something in common. Maybe it’s form, maybe it’s colour, or maybe, as with these handles, it’s both, plus a level of quality that gives your abode that extra-special something.
