Being in the hardware business and working with so many interior decorators, furniture artists, and kitchen designers we are exposed to a wide variety of ideas and concepts. Over time we start to notice trends and our best business strategy is to see a trend and meet that trend’s need. We’ve had great success with this strategy over time. Most notably our label holder selection which came out of the ongoing faux card catalog trend. We noticed the trend and met it’s needs by supplying label holders well under a dollar so everyone could complete their project with a reasonable budget.
One of the newer and still under the radar trends I’ve noticed building steam over the last year or so is the mix of brass with all shades of blue. When working with bloggers or individual furniture makers I used to never get requests for brass hardware going back 5 years. But now it’s becoming more and more common for me to sell or give brass hardware and then see it tagged in a post used with navy blue or a light blue. I think it gives furniture and kitchens a unique and refreshing look so I decided to share some of the beautiful examples of brass and blue that D. Lawless has had the pleasure of providing hardware for.
The first example comes from Batchelors Way and we get pictures via a small girl’s bathroom makeover. The post also includes a simple tutorial on how to spray paint cabinet doors.
Free Hardware Friday is here again and this time with a classic brass cabinet knob! Here’s the knob and instructions to participate are below. Thanks!

Virginia at Live Love DIY was one of the earliest bloggers we worked with and some of her posts really propelled us into working more and more with DIY blogs and others that could really show off how great some of our hardware can look on the right piece.
The piece below is an IKEA hack that turns out amazing by simply adding personally chosen hardware and painting the plain old cabinet after it comes out of the box. You can click through to the full DIY by clicking the blog name above and you can click right here to see the pulls Virginia used.
Our icebox hardware is specially designed from years in the furniture making business. We produced or sold so many iceboxes back in the day that we actually had our own reproduction name plates made. The “White Clad” ice box sign as it was originally manufactured was “Simmons Hardware Co.” We replaced Simmons with Lawless back in the early 90’s and actually upset quite a few people with the move. But hey, they are reproductions anyways!
Below the set is seen being used on the popular DIY blog Sawdust 2 Stitches on a re-purposed dresser. We were very lucky to get these great photos of the product in use!
