Get A Grip

Like a piece of statement jewelry topping off an outfit, hardware can make a room really sing. It’s all in the details. So after putting in all that effort to design a fabulous room, why settle for a boring clunker of a doorknob that you could have picked up at any department store? MS Design specializes in custom doorknobs, cabinet knobs, levers and other hardware. From elegant designs, like the Hampton model with its gracefully swooping knob, to the ornate beaded details in the company’s premier line, their work is proof that hardware doesn’t have to be all function and no fun. For an unexpected touch, check out their line of doorknobs with Edelman leather, which will glam up any room. The company, helmed by husband-and-wife team Marty and Sue Martovich, focuses on artisanal craft. Every knob is made in-house, in Connecticut, so each piece meets their exceptional standards of quality. Where can you get your hands on their handiwork? Check out Canaan Distributers in Stamford or Klaff’s (with locations in South Norwalk, Westport, Danbury, and Scarsdale, NY), or go straight to the source. The duo works directly with architects and designers to meet the needs of their customers. Bring your imagination (and maybe a few sketches) and MS Design will bring your ideas to life.
