In this new series of blog posts, we're going to be delving deeper into our collection of handles, showers, and taps. Our aim is to provide an interesting look into our range of products, offering insight into the different styles we offer, and how we create these from within our Brighton-based workshop.
Our first blog post puts the spotlight on our Antique Copper Hardware collection. We've included a video that showcases the fascinating copper aging process of the handles. We've also given our thoughts on the type of environment that we think this hardware fits perfectly into.
All Antique Copper hardware goes through a range of different steps in order to achieve their weathered, aged appearance. First, they are stripped down to reveal their raw surface, which is then thoroughly cleaned to ensure a clean foundation. Following this, the copper undergoes a controlled oxidization process, carefully monitored until the desired appearance of aged copper is achieved.
Once the ideal state is reached, the copper undergoes a delicate sanding stage. This step not only enhances the overall aged and weathered aesthetic but also adds a unique tactile dimension to the item. Finally, before completion, a number of coats of marine-grad lacquer are applied, which ensures the longevity of the Antique Copper Finish.
The Antique Copper finish stands out as an ideal choice for a range of different settings, with these spaning from striking industrial conversions to the timeless charm of traditional country homes. This finish offers a classic elegance with an industrial edge, making it a versatile option for a wide spectrum of interior design themes.
At the heart of our commitment to quality and customization is the fact that every single handle is hand-finished to order. This allows us to not only meet but exceed your expectations by adjusting the tonal nuances of the finish to align perfectly with your envisioned aesthetic.
Whether you're seeking to infuse a touch of rugged sophistication into a modern industrial space or aiming to amplify the rustic allure of a traditional country home, we believe the Antique Copper finish is perfect for making a statement that is both visually captivating and uniquely personalised.
