Living finishes

Named after some of New Zealand’s great walks, a new range of pull handles by Windsor Architectural Hardware offers a fresh take on sustainable door decor.

Crafted locally by New Zealand artisans and finished by hand, the range includes three distinct styles that deliver a striking statement for connecting rooms, or for exterior use, designed to embody the essence of towering trees in native landscapes. 

Tasman: The strong, definitive lines of this handle mimic the contrasts between Abel Tasman’s golden sand beaches, lush native bush, sculptured granite cliffs, and crystal-clear waters.
Milford: Inspired by “the finest walk in the world”, the fine milling details reflect the steep faces of the glacier-carved valleys and majestic fjords of Milford Sound.
Kepler: The curved ends of the Kepler pull handle are symbolic of several aspects of its namesake, including the abundance of surrounding mountainous peaks and high-country tussock.

Made with solid brass, each piece in this collection is designed to patina naturally; slowly evolving over time, the brass responds to its unique environment so every handle becomes entirely unique.
