Choose Us For the Same “Old” Reasons: Quality and Value

LookInTheAttic appreciates the fact that antique hardware represents more than just useful pieces for opening drawers or doors. They are objects of beauty to be appreciated and add important design touches to homes and furniture. Look closely at antique or vintage house or furniture hardware, dating back decades or hundreds of years. What you will find is a stunning display of hardware styles and details like ribbon and reed door pull plates, Chippendale Willow brasses, Hepplewhite thin brass pulls with eagle symbols, or elaborate Victorian crystal door knockers. 

If you appreciate the quality and details found in products made in long gone eras, it is natural to want to bring the past into the present. That is precisely why we have specialized, since 1997, in crafting fine reproductions of the classic hardware pieces that add beautiful styling to furniture and homes. Choosing our company to meet your hardware needs makes sense, if you appreciate high quality hardware, customization and exceptional service.

Tribute to the Past through Attention to Details in the Present

Our skilled workers find it very satisfying to reproduce high quality reproduction or custom designed hardware, as a tribute to the past. In our business, “old” is a term used with reverence. Staff members at LookInTheAttic are on a mission to recreate the high quality vintage hardware in a way that captures the spirit of an era when craftsmen in small shops produced custom-made hardware with loving care.

Our finished products are handmade so that each piece is a handcrafted work of art. The final products reflect the attention to detail needed to reproduce quality hardware items that are similar to pieces once made by masters of the trade. The knobs, hooks, pulls and plates are cast in bronze or brass, hand burnished and finished, machine drilled, assembled and polished. Entering our workshop is like stepping back in time as skilled artisans carefully recreate the smallest antique details on fine pieces of hardware, while using modern precision tools and technology to produce exacting results.

Customized Reproductions or Contemporary Styling

LookInTheAttic reproductions take pride in the detail and are made from original hardware pieces or customers can order unique pieces to match the styling of their homes or offices. In fact, our craftspeople love customized hardware orders because it gives them an opportunity to use their skills and experience to the fullest. You can order a reproduction of hardware pieces found in the nicest homes around the world, or you can work with one of our designers and create a unique style. 

Browsing the catalog is a good place to begin shopping, if you are not sure what hardware style will work best for your purposes. Each customer has different needs or a specific concept in mind. You may prefer contemporary styling, need an unusual garden piece, or simply want to replace your switch plates. Knowledgeable LookInTheAttic staff are always available to help with small to large personal or business orders, either online, in person or by phone.
