Leather Wrapped Hardware

Turnstyle Designs is a hardware company based out of the UK that offers a great line of leather wrapped cabinet pulls, door/window hardware and accessories. The clean lines of the contemporary hardware pieces are wrapped in genuine leather in a variety of colors with stitching, I find the juxtaposition of the two materials interesting and it lends itself to be used in a variety of design styles: ranch, contemporary, transitional, etc. These products are of very high quality and come at a generally higher price than traditional hardware and must be ordered through a Rep., which is slightly more complicated considering it is a smaller company based overseas. A more cost effective alternative with a similar style is offered by Atlas Homewares. The Atlas line is comparable to the Turnstyle in look but cost less and can be ordered directly from their website.
