Hardware Renaissance Obsidian Finish
March 18, 2022
Hardware Renaissance introduces Obsidian, a matte black finish option for its bronze hardware. Adding black accents to a room is among today’s most notable design trends. The dark hue acts as a neutral, helping to ground a space by enhancing the colors around it. Black elevates a design by adding drama, dimension and contrast.
Offered on Hardware Renaissance’s extensive collection of bronze hardware, the new Obsidian patina is rich, elegant and sophisticated. It is a true “living finish” that will mature over time, gradually developing a gently aged look with its own unique characteristics.
Hardware Renaissance takes pride in its craftsmanship, beginning the process with the hand-poured, small-batch sand casting of the fine silicon bronze. As the opposite of the mass production mindset, Hardware Renaissance relies on master artisans who use time-honored techniques to create sustainable hardware according to customer orders. Each knob, pull and lever is carefully fashioned, meticulously refined, polished and finished with custom detailing.
The brand’s hand-applied patinas vary slightly with the organic nature of the hardware, enhancing the bespoke feel of each piece and highlighting the inherent beauty of the copper-rich alloy. Living finishes can be allowed to age or may be preserved in their original state with regular waxing. The Obsidian finish is a stylish choice for any of the brand’s bronze hardware collection, which includes traditional European designs as well as sleek, modern looks.
