Friends of Fivecat: Katonah Hardware

Whenever we’re looking for unique or hard-to-find hardware, we turn to Katonah Hardware.

This afternoon, our client with the glass house asked me to help him find new latches for his eight-foot-tall casement windows. The removed  hardware was a standard, putty-colored “Andersen type” latch. Not exactly appropriate for a 1969 modern glass house. We’re looking for something more contemporary with clean, simple lines.

My first call was to Ian Baren, owner of Katonah Hardware and within an hour we had three choices.

Thanks Ian.

Restored Antiques by Rejuvenation

Rejuvenation is well known for their exceptional collection of historically inspired light fixtures. Throughout the past few years, they’ve introduced additional offerings, such as hardware and accessories.

Did you know that they also offer restored antique originals?

From Rejuvenation.com:

As much as our own lighting and hardware reproductions are chips off the old blocks, the heart, soul, and origin of Rejuvenation is rooted in lighting restoration and architectural salvage.

We opened shop in 1977, and ever since then, preservation, restoration, and a great respect for tradition and craftsmanship have been at the core of our values.

Choose from original vintage lighting, shades, and hardware from Victorian to Mid-Century Modern styles in finishes that have been expertly revived, reconditioned, and protected.

Sherle Wagner

From SherleWagner.com:

Since 1945, Sherle Wagner International has been recognized world wide as the premier source for luxury hardware and bath accessories. Our product range has expanded significantly over the years, moving beyond the bathroom and embracing the contemporary without departing from appreciation for the classics. Each new line we introduce remains consistent with the high design and fabrication standards that have made us the leader in the industry for over sixty years.

Sherle Wagner International was founded by a man with a passion for perfection and an eye for elegance: a pioneer in realizing that the utilitarian does not have to mean the mundane. Mr. Wagner was, first and foremost, an artist. Sherle Wagner designs maintain a quality of timelessness through an artist’s understanding of an aesthetic that does not pass with the ages.

Because all Sherle Wagner products are originals, made by us from the design inception stage to completion, the results are unparalleled. We use old world artisans and timeless techniques, so that every piece is a true original. The Sherle Wagner name is synonymous with luxury and characterized by fine detail, meticulous finishing and authenticity.

Living Well with Leather

Back in college, I was president of the AIAS chapter and attended Forum in Miami. A local house tour took us to a very modern residence with a stained concrete floor with a warm, reddish brown finish. It looked so much like leather, I needed to touch it to be sure is wasn’t. Since that day, I have had a “thing” for leather in home design.

Recently, I’ve been noticing a trend toward more leather products. Here is a quick sample of a few I’ve seen.

Ann Sacks

Piel Leather tiles from Ann Sacks are simply beautiful. I bet you couldn’t keep from touching them. Soft, warm, comfort… pure luxury.

Turnstyle Designs

London-based Turnstyle Designs specializes in unique handcrafted architectural hardware. They carry an entire line of leather wrapped hardware.

Silestone

How about a leather kitchen counter? Well, it’s not actually leather. It’s Silestone Leather quartz counters and tiles in a special matte leather finish. In addition to looking great, Silestone Leather is also the first and only counter top material with Microban technology.
