Australian Design & Co has collaborated with Barbera Design for longer than a decade, during which time they have curated an exquisite array of handcrafted furniture which explores the brilliance of heirloom bronze, stone, and glass.
Now, Australian Design & Co is expanding its offerings to include a range of Bronze Hardware designed for entrance doors, joinery, and wall hooks.
These purposeful yet elegant pieces, designed by Daniel Barbera, embody refined luxury at its finest. They shimmer with otherworldly whimsy, bringing to mind an image of glistening golden pools. With their tactile yet robust nature they yearn to be touched, caressed, and admired.
The product of years of hard work and dedication, hardware by Barbera Design is backed with expert industry knowledge and craftsmanship. From large-scale entrance door hardware to fascinating joinery pulls and opulent wall hooks, Barbera Design has bespoke creations for every occasion – offering a timeless aesthetic that tugs at the heartstrings.
Bronze is a material which stirs a feeling.
The wow-factor created by the significant weight and scale of the Fermat Entrance handles creates a bold, stylish entryway packed with personality. Available in an array of shapes, sizes, and finishes, the Fermat Entrance handles have magnificent proportions designed to impress.
The Fermat and Messina Joinery pulls, renowned for their creativity, can be paired together in captivating combinations which give you limitless design flexibility.
For those seeking a more traditional touch, the Cyrus entrance handle fits the bill with its subtle, sleek and functional pull design. The Pescara and Messina wall hooks, on the other hand, are the epitome of opulence – drawing the eye immediately and refusing to let go.
This collection has left architects and interior designers alike smitten with the charming creations of Barbra Design – and it’s easy to see why.
The Bronze Hardware range features handcrafted pieces that are not only functional, but exquisite. They add a touch of grandeur to any entrance, joinery unit, or wall, transforming traditionally innocuous elements of a design scheme into breathtaking highlights.
