Windsor Architectural Hardware’s Italian-range handles are small but impressively formed

Your ongoing happiness is in your hands when you’re renovating or building, so we advocate investing in as many seemingly minor details as possible. Of all the easily overlooked aspects of a home, door handles are up there, but consider them key players from the start and you’ll reap the rewards on the regular.
Locally crafted but with a European sensibility, we can’t help but notice Windsor’s high-end Italian range. Forged and machined in Italy from top-quality brass, then hand-finished in Invercargill, this handsome selection of architectural hardware encompasses six collections of handles in rose and longplate form.

MAIN IMAGE With a subtle colonial vibe, this Federal design from the Italian range joins the straight edges of the lever to the rose with contoured detailing. The handle pictured has an Oil-Rubbed Bronze finish that, like the rest of the range, works well with other natural materials, including timber, steel, stone and concrete. ABOVE In a Rumbled Brass finish, the Charleston handle has a cylindrical shape that encourages a sense of balance. It draws from an industrial aesthetic, making it a good match for interiors with similar elements, such as exposed beams.

To create the Italian range’s 15 different finishes, Windsor uses a variety of metal treatments that specialists then perfect by hand to create a natural patina. Bespoke but batch-processed for cohesive colour, some finishes can be left raw to age gracefully and others sealed with your choice of matte or gloss lacquer. Open the door to the look that suits you, inviting premium pleasure into your everyday.
