Art Deco Door Handles from Carlisle Brass

The Art Deco movement emerged in France just prior to World War I. Influencing the design of everything from furniture and architecture to fashion and jewellery, Art Deco combined rich materials and expert craftsmanship with modern styling.

Objects crafted in the Art Deco style often utilise clean and simple geometric shapes, giving a stylised and streamlined appearance.  Early examples of Art Deco objects often combined this look with bright colours and flamboyant touches.

As the 1930s progressed, the arrival of new materials like plastic, stainless steel and chrome plating had a dramatic influence of Art Deco, subduing its original vibrant colour palette and more flamboyant flourishes. The style gradually developed into 'Streamline Moderne', which focused more intently on sleek curvature of form and smooth, highly-polished surfaces.

Though the Art Deco period began more than a century ago, its influence on art and design has continued to have a presence in modern times. Top architectural hardware brand Carlisle Brass has taken inspiration from the functional beauty of Art Deco furniture to create a new range of door furniture, and JAS Timber are proud suppliers of this stunning collection.

The new collection of Art Deco door furniture from Carlisle Brass includes backplate-mounted door knobs and lever handles ( in eurolock, latch, lock and bathroom formats ) along with pull handles and cupboard-door knobs. All of the products in the collection feature angular cuts and stepped lines, effortlessly capturing the elegant aesthetic Art Deco look. You can choose from either a polished chrome or satin nickel finish, both of which will add a classy touch to both traditional and contemporary interior design schemes.

While door furniture from the Carlisle Brass Art Deco collection are supplied complete with bolt-through fixings, they should only be used in conjunction with Eurospec deadbolts, latches and locks. A comprehensive selection of these ancillary products is also available from JAS Timber at the most competitive price.
