CABINET HARDWARE PRODUCT OF THE YEAR WATERSTONE FAUCETS: INDUSTRIAL APPLIANCE PULLS Waterstone Faucets owner Chris Kuran went to the Naval Academy and is obsessed with everything Nautical and most things Industrial. This cabinet hardware and appliance pull collection was inspired by the Industrial Contemporary bath collection that will be their first introduction into bath. Waterstone took into consideration the feel of the pull in the hand and made it a more oval shape for comfort without knurling the pull on the underside, for a smooth feel. They took into account which pieces can be plated separately for flawless split-finish designs. The diamond knurling will sparkle in a shiny finish. This product is made of US solid brass bar stock. Nothing is cast, it is all machined. HONORABLE MENTION - TURNSTYLE DESIGNS: HICKORY Inspired by North American hunting knives, the Hickory lever, pull handle and cabinet knob are each hand cast in Turnstyle Designs unique Amalfine™ material which preserves the fine details of the timber and wood grain design. Available in 48 combinations of Amalfine™ and solid brass, the style of the lever, pull handle and cabinet knob are set on a solid brass plate or strip and have a circular button. The circular buttons are a take on a nail, creating a beautiful contrast between the smooth brass finish and the textured Amalfine™ surface.
