Talk about sexy hardware! Leave it to the French to produce one of the most beautiful new lines of hardware I have seen in a very long time. I am passionate about gorgeous door knobs and cabinet hardware, and think of it as jewelry for the home. Unfortunately
A really fantastic door knob can elevate a simple door to new heights. Trust me, it’s just like putting the right earrings on with that little black dress.
Podva has taken classical shapes and styles and redesigned them with his own nuances. The forms are simple, but elegant, functional but luxurious. They all possess a wonderful sensuous element that makes them stand out from the crowd.
Everything in the line is available in an extensive variety of finishes…12 in all…from doré to cuivré with vert de gris and chocolat thrown in inbetween.
The company has provided hardware for such illustrious hotels as the Hotel Crillon, the Hotel Palais Royal, the Hotel des Champs Elysées Plaza and several high end restaurants in Paris and Monaco. I would say that’s not too bad a provenance.
Podva uses the words ‘having the correct alchemy’ to depict how he sees his hardware enhancing the interior design of a space. I would wholeheartedly agree with him. SERIE RARE hardware has a lushness and a sensibility that is just the right mixture of originality and desirability to make it a special addition to any room.
So put SERIE RARE on your ‘A List’ for go to hardware for those projects where going the extra mile…picking out all of the right small touches… is going to be appreciated and enjoyed.
CIAO, CIAO ‘TIL NEXT TIME!
