Architectural Hardware Targets Improved Aesthetics
Ashley Norton, a designer and manufacturer of architectural hardware, proudly introduces its Urban Suite collection of architectural hardware. Proving less is more, the minimalist design of the art grade bronze fixtures follows today’s love of a modern, clean design aesthetic, with just a hint of distressing. From a converted loft or brownstone to a sprawling suburban residence, the Urban Suite allows homeowners and designers to make a cohesive contemporary design statement.
“Our Urban Suite collection speaks to those who focus on function as much as style,” says Ashish Karnani, Vice President of Ashley Norton. “Eliminating the extraneous allows for the design’s crisp, sharp lines and exceptional finishing quality. Plus, ergonomically speaking, the design is sleek and comfortable to the touch,” explains Karnani.
Using the finest art-grade bronze, artisans sand cast the metal into each distinctive one-of-a-kind piece in the collection. The Urban Suite elements include interior handlesets, entry handlesets, cabinet pull handles, cabinet knobs, door and appliance pulls, outlet covers, bath hardware, and more. The Urban Suite backplates may be paired with any of Ashley Norton’s numerous lever choices. Ashley Norton’s European engineering techniques, including the European made short-throw latch, ensures smooth, easy operation and longevity. Each piece is available in five slightly distressed patinas: Dark Bronze, White Bronze, Light Bronze, White Medium Bronze and Matt Black.
The Urban Suite and all Ashley Norton architectural hardware is available at leading kitchen and bath dealers throughout North America. Lever handlesets start from $172. Entrysets begin at $480.
