Sustainable but Stylish for the Home

With its latest collections, Idaho-based Rocky Mountain Hardware proves sustainable design needn’t be “granola or earthy” in its approach. Using 90 percent recycled art-grade bronze, the firm’s products abound with style. The Paris Collection ($39 for a knob to $1,008 for a full entry set with mortise lock), designed by Roger Thomas, updates 18th-century French motifs—faceted forms, quatrefoils—for door locksets and cabinet hardware. The highly ornate Briggs Collection ($35 to $1,877) was designed in-house and draws from a wide variety of decorative sources—from Morocco to an Idaho 19th-century church door handle—for its array of hand-carved, sand-cast grips, pulls, levers, knobs, and cabinet hardware. And San Francisco–based designer Ted Boerner has 27 pieces among five new collections ($36 for a small cabinet pull to $370 for an 11-1/8″ grip) that showcase his predilection for simplicity of form and highly textural finishes. Together, they represent an aesthetic cornucopia that is anything but quaint.  (888.788.2013, www.rockymountainhardware.com)
