Crafting Elegance: The Art of Choosing Materials and Finishes

Welcome to the Clemo + Finch blog, where we delve into the intricate world of high-end architectural hardware – the unsung heroes that elevate the aesthetics and functionality of spaces.

In this article, we shine a spotlight on the crucial decisions that define our products: the meticulous choices of materials and finishes that embody craftsmanship and luxury.

Our Materials: For us, the quality of our brass is paramount, and we meticulously choose materials that not only exude opulence but also promise durability and longevity. Each material is chosen for its unique characteristics, ensuring that our products stand the test of time in both form and function.

Solid Brass: One of our favourite materials to use; the classic brass, takes center stage in our collection. Renowned for its timeless appeal, durability, and malleability, brass allows us to create intricate and exquisite designs that showcase both strength and beauty. All Clemo + Finch products are made with brass as a standard practise. 


Finishing Touches:

Choosing the right finish is akin to putting the final strokes on a masterpiece. Our commitment to excellence extends to the diverse range of finishes we offer, each carefully selected to enhance the beauty of our architectural hardware. Below we explore our favourite finishes:

Antique Bronze: Embracing heritage; for those seeking a touch of tradition; antique bronze offers a rich finish that adds character and warmth to its surroundings. Its ability to age gracefully ensures that our architectural hardware tells a story of enduring beauty and timeless elegance.

Satin Brass: a masterful composition of beauty and resilience. Its subdued, brushed finish imparts a soft, satin-like glow that gracefully catches the light, creating an atmosphere of understated opulence. This distinctive finish effortlessly walks the line between classic and contemporary, making it an ideal choice for those who seek a versatile and enduring design element.

Ceramic Finishes: a cutting-edge fusion of style and durability in the world of design. The application of Cerakote, a thin ceramic finish renowned for its toughness and resilience, elevates our cabinetry handles and lighting to new heights.Ceramic-coated hardware finish provides a sleek, modern aesthetic that seamlessly integrates into contemporary spaces. Beyond its visual appeal, the ceramic coating ensures long-lasting protection against the wear and tear of daily use.
