As I’m constantly pouring over the large collection of hardware I have accumulated from all over the globe and learn more about the old trades and craftsmen who would have made such objects, I find myself dreaming up new designs and ideas for The Society inc Hardware Collection. And so I’m very excited to announce that you will find a few new friends in the hardware cupboard next time you swing by The Society inc Warehouse!
I continue to celebrate humble materials that have been hand-tinkered and smithed, with each form & name inspired by an element of history or story that tickles my fancy; think a Flotilla of ships on seafaring adventures and botanical expeditions with Solander and Linnaeus, or foraging along the seashore for Limpets and Periwinkles. Of course, you must allow a little make-believe and imagination in the mix!
These are the kinds of pieces that will add a dash of storytelling and top-layering magic to your home, where you can slowly replace existing hardware with styles that speak of craftsmanship and honest materials. Don’t be afraid to mix and match materials or styles, think of it as choose your own adventure!
