Fall Trends: Decorative Hardware Ideas to Spruce Up the Home
Fashionable decor elements such as cozy fabrics and a warm earthy palette will always be in vogue for the fall season. Nevertheless, one can never underestimate the power of details. There’s no more opportune time like a new season to make a few changes in one’s home. Adding new yet subtle layers of design details, take, for instance, decorative hardware, will make for a more intricate decor.
Comfort and color contrast will be two of the main recurring themes for the season with attention to detail being a close runner-up and the silent closer that ties everything together. Decorative hardware, while sometimes overlooked can certainly shift the mood of an interior, mainly due to its ornamental potential. Below, you can find a series of universal fall trends that will be rather prominent for the upcoming season!
Earthy Inspirations are Always Welcomed
Introducing earthy inspirations to your home decor can go beyond bringing the outdoors, indoors or just adding greenery throughout, instead, a simple piece inspired by earth’s diversity can surely do the trick. For instance, PullCast has over the years developed a unique collection that had its origin in the brand’s incessant pursuit of finding the most distinguished forms, shapes, and textures and converting them into unique hardware pieces that are heavily inspired by the wonders of nature.
Just to name a few examples, the Kesya hardware family stands out for its uneven textures whereas the Flow door pulls present an organic shape that decodes sophistication and personality and brings a natural sense to any interior. Of course, one cannot talk about earthy inspirations without mentioning the core elements, such as trees, leaves, or branches, all of which can be found in the Kerma, Leaf, and Limb handles and pulls, respectively.
Bespoke Accessories are Key to a Tailored Aesthetic
Bespoke design is synonymous with originality. The idea of having a custom made is extremely favored in today’s industry as it takes into consideration how customization of a piece, especially in terms of materials and finishes. Bespoke accessories make a space feel more personal and inviting.
For sea lovers, PullCast offers an exclusive range of hardware designs inspired by some of the most astounding creatures found in the ocean, take, for example, the Octo and Urchin drawer handles that bring a special seafaring touch to any home. Moreover, if one enjoys more diamond-like designs, accessories such as the Feu drawer handle and the Karat doorknob allow for a more tailored aesthetic to any interior.
Introduce Textured Design
One of the latest trends in the interior design industry is textured designs, mainly due to their ridged aesthetic. Cabinets, sideboards, and drawers can benefit from this trend not necessarily by having a textured character but by having a complement that does, such as decorative hardware. This is where details can make a difference. Textured hardware pieces, such as the Monocles drawer handle and the Macri cabinet handle add a dramatic accent that can bring a whole new level of edginess to a furniture design, and at the same time, make the space feel more interesting and substantial.
Strong and bold shapes with geometric allure will always be trending, especially when combining functionality and a sculptural scheme. For the fall season, one of the biggest tendencies will be dimensional styles that play with lines, shapes, and forms. When it comes to decorative hardware, a geometric knob can stand apart from the rest no matter its pattern.
The Waltz drawer handle, for example, takes the shape of a hexagon and it is an industrial-styled piece of extreme simplicity that also gives a nod to the Art Deco movement. Another example would be the Skyline cabinet handle whose straight architectural lines make an impressive statement.
Comb Hardware Family: A Design Series at One with Nature
When it comes to interior design, one of the most important aspects is to make sure that your home interiors somehow feature a sense of nature in them. While adding greenery is the best way to do so, sometimes opting for sublime details that were inspired by the wonders of nature can also do the trick!
Over the years, PullCast’s team of designers and creatives have developed a comprehensive range of hardware families that are heavily influenced by worldwide subjects such as art, architecture, and nature! One, in particular, resonates astoundingly with the upcoming season and takes cue after one of the most incredible animal-induced phenomena, the honeycombs. The series of decorative hardware in question is the Comb family, which is comprised of ten exclusive designs, from cabinet and drawer handles to doorknobs that will certainly bring a more natural touch to any type of furniture or door design.
As previously mentioned, the grand design inspiration behind the peculiar aesthetic of Comb was based on one of the most pleasing sights in nature, the honeycombs phenomena. PullCast was so marveled by the angular perfection that bees can form, that the brand had no other choice than to create their interpretation.
Through extensive craftsmanship techniques, such as carving and polishing, every piece of the Comb hardware family highlights an irregularly circular shape that is in complete harmony with nature. Most of the pieces found within this collection present a brass silhouette that is best contrasted on neutral-toned or darker furnishings, especially if the latter benefits from rich materials such as wood, leather, or even marble.
The Comb family is a part of PullCast’s Earth collection, a design series that takes everyone on a sensorial journey through the Earth’s most absolute creations. Furthermore, its essence is driven by the brand’s incessant pursuit of distinguished forms, shapes, textures, and colors.
Last year, PullCast created another Comb piece, but this time for the Limited Edition collection due to its sense of legacy and rarity. While sharing the same basis as its counterpart, this new drawer handle version features both details in brass and cubic zirconia crystals, highlighting a more glimmering nature perfect to bestow any style of furniture design.
