Why Matte Black is the hardware finish of your industrial modern dreams

Fully embrace the dramatic appeal of industrial modern design with Matte Black hardware. Here's what you need to know.



Industrial modern design dares to bare what most homes try to hide. With exposed air ducts, bricks and other structural elements, this design is an edgy choice. Often charactarized by big windows, high ceilings and open concepts, industrial modern decor sometimes requires much thought and attention to detail to create a space many would call home.

Dramatic appeal

Matte Black is a stylish and daring finish and because there's no shortage of drama with industrial modern design, Matte Black hardware is a natural fit to tie the entire space together. It pairs beautifully with the lighting styles and architectural details often found in industrial modern homes. When choosing door knobs and levers, it's best suited for Schlage's Broadway and Latitude lever, Bowery knob and paired with the Collins trim.
