Welcome to Hardware Renaissance. We offer the finest in both true hand forged iron and solid cast bronze architectural hardware.
Our designs reflect a fresh take on classic European, Spanish Colonial, Transitional, and Contemporary styles. We finish our distinctive hardware with unique, completely hand-applied patinas. Hardware Renaissance is truly Like No Other.
How It’s Made: Each of our product lines is carefully hand crafted by skilled artisans, and coupled with the best engineering for years of trouble-free working.
Hand Forged Iron: Each piece in this totally unique line is absolutely hand made. There are no patterns, no molds. Master blacksmiths start with rods or flat stock of raw steel, heat it to red hot or white hot on coals, and expertly hammer and bend each lever, each backplate, each pull into shape. We like to think that each piece has a small part of the craftsman’s artistic soul in it — from them to you, to enjoy and appreciate in your home for a very long time.
The patinas we apply on our iron hardware add to its uniqueness . We hand apply each finish with heat (and in some cases, with chemicals to add color) to highlight the natural, rich texture of the iron.
Solid Bronze — We sand cast our bronze hardware in small batches using the highest quality silicon and white bronze. This is followed by intensive hand chasing and cleaning, buffing, and polishing to refine the designs. The rich bronze hardware also gets our distinctive hand applied patinas in a wide range of colors — from monochromatic patinas for clean and contemporary hardware to unusual, mottled patinas for the more eclectic eye. Whichever Hardware Renaissance product you choose, you will receive artistic, beautiful hardware — not a mass produced product. A labor of love, from us to you.
Hardware Renaissance is featured in many high end boutique hotels, ski lodges, and hospitality ranches. From keyless entries with custom levers and property logos, to custom accessories and patinas, we can bring your unique vision to reality.
