Whimsical Door Hardware

Long lost is the art of craftsmanship, especially when it comes to the smaller things we take for granted. There was a time, not even too long ago when experienced individuals would create beautiful and intricate pieces of art that were entirely original for every door. We’ve curated a selection of door handles from the Palace at Versailles to demonstrate this Casually Opulent and rich tradition that is no longer seen today. We like to imagine a unique home of similar decor and style with lavishly constructed hardware just like these below. While King Louis XIV may have been a bit eccentric and spent most of Frances money during the time the palace was constructed; we’re glad he did and left us with things like this.
