Why Designers ❤️ Hardware
What impact can hardware make on your home? Here are some insightful words from a few of the most influential designers and tastemakers. Be sure to follow us on instagram to see how these designers are using hardware in new and creative ways!
“You could wait months for a custom piece, but you don’t have to,” designer Michelle Nussbaumer says. “Modern Matter is creating heirloom-quality hardware, and there just isn’t much of that on the market. Even if you moved out of a house, you’d take these pieces with you—they’re that beautiful.”
“I think all of this is really just jewelry for the home. You can take this really boring piece of cabinetry and put your hardware on it and it turns into something so beautiful.” says Michelle Nussbaumer

“Hardware really is the jewelry for the kitchen, it’s like the engagement ring on a finger.” says Eddie Ross
“It’s not your basic kitchen hardware. People are getting more adventurous with hardware and not worrying about what their neighbors are doing. They are more confident and feeling “if we like it then let’s do it” and that’s what matters.” says Eddie.
