Turning Bark into Bronze

Evocative Bark Textures by Haute Déco

The wonderfully evocative textures of Nature are a constant source of inspiration to Marie-Véronique Swannell, founder and creative director of Haute Déco. The Bronze Bark collection adds a new range of draMattic textures to Haute Déco's selection of Contemporary Architectural Hardware. Referencing nature in an abstracted form by isolating organic patterns and translating them in bronze, Bronze Bark is typical of the company's approach to design, with its focus on sculpture and modelling by hand.

"The fact that our handles are created as pieces of art, hand-carved rather than printed in 3D, gives them a certain poetic quality, part of what differentiates Haute Déco's handles from much of the competition" says Marie-Véronique.

Capturing contrasting bark surfaces from the rough-hewn "Alder" texture to the fainter rice-grain pattern of "Birch", the collection offers coordinated lever handles, cabinet knobs, furniture handles and oversize centre doorknobs. With abstracted motifs and available in a variety of contemporary finishes, Bark Handles can suit multiple environment with a rough-luxury vibe, from city apartments to chalets to contemporary beach house: Matt nickel will complement sleek modern schemes, the rich dark patina of antique bronze suits a rough-luxury theme while Haute Déco's soft satin gold will add a touch of warm glamour.
