Hardware Made Spectacular!

P.E. Guerin, an age-old company that specializes in custom hardware, opened their current New York City location in Greenwich Village in 1892. The firm, one of the only foundries of its kind in the United States, creates exclusive products that transcend the definition of hardware with their signature artistic design.

Once you purchase your first P.E. Guerin cabinet knob or faucet, you are hooked for life. 

The company also makes furniture such as this fabulous metal etagere that I used to decorate a showhouse for Charlotte Moss.

When starting a new project, I like to begin by specifying materials for the home at P.E. Guerin. Beautiful hardware sets the tone for the type of furnishings and wallpaper I choose for each room. A special doorknob will entice a guest to enter a glorious room filled with cremone bolts and custom hinges with unique finials on each cabinet.

A variety of door handles laid out on a counter for sampling.

This masculine lion door knocker makes quite a statement.
These beautiful French cabinet knobs, not only feel great to the touch, but also add character to any new piece of furniture.
Cabinet Knobs with custom acanthus leaf details.
You can customize a P.E. Guerin faucet for any theme. This elephant spout works well with the bone tusk handles for an African themed Powder Room.
Have fun at the beach with this sea turtle and frog spout that lifts and lowers for the drain pull.
Make an appointment to visit P.E. Guerin at the start of your next design project, and you will be set to go!


  1. This makes me want to change every handle in my house!

  2. The elephant hardware is exquisite!!! Would love to have this in our powder room.
