Trim

The subtle details in our trim options establish a profound foundation for your door hardware. Give your home a unique touch by choosing a trim that perfectly reflects your traditional style.

Addison Trim

Addison trim
The Addison trim has a distinguished look that incorporates subtle details without losing its classic simplicity. This trim was inspired by Edwardian architecture—particularly the windows and window treatments associated with that style.

Brookshire Trim

Brookshire trim
The elaborate Brookshire trim features ornate details and an opulent design aesthetic. It's reminiscent of styles seen in areas like San Francisco and Cape May, and takes its inspiration from the rich, ornamental look of the Victorian Era.

Camelot Trim

Camelot trim
The Camelot trim’s scalloped architectural details can make any room charming and approachable. This trim draws on colonial inspiration, but fits just as well into the transitional category because of its Victorian Era edge detailing.

Wakefield Trim

Wakefield trim
The Wakefield trim is soft and simple, bringing a warm, welcoming style to any room. This style is inspired by classic Federal-style homes made popular in towns like Arlington, Virginia.

Knobs & levers

Take your traditional style up a notch by choosing the perfect knob or lever to accentuate your favorite trim above. These classic looks below never go out of style.

Andover Knob

Andover knob
The Andover knob is traditional but versatile, with delicate details and a subtle hint of elegance. It is reflective of Federal-style homes, like those constructed around the time of the original thirteen colonies and those that continue to be constructed on the East Coast today.

Siena knob

Siena knob
The Siena knob’s eye-catching oval shape gives it a unique and memorable look. Inspired by Federal-style homes found throughout the United States, particularly in the Midwest, the Siena knob is best paired with the Wakefield or Camelot trim.

Birmingham lever

Birmingham lever
The ornately styled Birmingham lever spares no attention to detail, providing a touch of refinement everywhere it goes. This lever draws its inspiration from the Victorian Era—particularly Victorian plumbing that featured delicate flourishes and ornamental touches, making it a perfect match for the Brookshire trim.

Flair lever

Flair lever
The elegant Flair lever’s ornate details are reminiscent of a paper scroll, giving the lever a dramatic bit of – yes, flair. The Flair lever pairs best with the Addison, Brookshire or Camelot trim.

Finishes

Complete your traditional door hardware set with a finish that coordinates perfectly. Here are three we'd recommend below.

Antique brass

Antique brass
Rich brown hues and golden undertones lend a warm, inviting appeal to the Antique Brass finish. This finish closely resembles the look of natural brass and is undeniably Victorian, with hints of Colonial Era style occasionally peeking through.

Aged bronze

Aged bronze
The elegant sophistication of the Aged Bronze finish is apparent in the warm, copper tones that break through its darker, aged exterior. It's a traditionally inspired finish that finds its style rooted in the Victorian Era, but also heavily in the Arts & Crafts movement—Aged Bronze works exceptionally well with ornate, handmade, craftsman-style furnishings.

Matte black

Matte black
The striking appearance of the Matte Black finish creates an elegant look that’s sure to be noticed in any style setting. Matte Black is unique in its ability to serve as a bridge between the worlds of modern and traditional styles and looks most stylish with the Addison trim.
