As you can see by the provided definition, architectural hardware relates to hardware elements, such as hinges, locks, catches, knobs, and handles that are specifically included in the basis of any house. They serve a practical function, but they also serve a decorative purpose and may be considered part of the decorative treatment of a room or a building.
This type of architectural hardware elements don’t include, for instance, cabinet pulls of a certain furniture piece that’s included as a part of a decorative element of the house, therefore it isn’t a component of the building process and of the structure of the house. We can call that a decorative hardware.
PullCast’s main focus started to be on decorative hardware elements. Most of PullCast’s first pieces were cabinet pulls or any other hardware decorative elements to spice up/ accessorize a certain furniture piece. But recently, PullCast expanded its core business and entered the competitive world of architectural hardware with a stunning collection of door handles and knobs that are causing a major impact in the design market!
