Take a walk on the wild side with our Iguana hardware

You don’t have to travel to the Galapagos Islands to enjoy the exotic beauty of these strange creatures.  (keep in mind that beauty is in the eye of the beholder).  Their unique appearance can now be enjoyed when used as door hardware in many different types of projects including day spas, boutique hotels or personal retreats on the island; but mainlanders will also enjoy adding this exotic touch to their interiors.
The Hawaiian collection was originally created for Debbie Zylstra of Zylstra Interior Design on Kauai and includes other pieces like our  elegant orchid pulls or whimsical Laysan Finch pull.  While the iguana is not indigenous to the islands that make up Hawaii we do associate this reptile with the area even if it is in it’s ferile outlaw form.
Whenever possible we enjoy sharing with you the process of designing custom hardware.  Martin begins by drawing an amazingly detailed depiction of how he envisions the piece.  This drawing will act as our guide when it is time to carve the wax mold and ultimately cast the piece.  The drawing below is an indication of how Martin envisioned the double iguana door pull to look on closed double doors.

The iguanas are shown here as an overlapping pair that work perfectly on sliding doors but they can also be used as back to back pieces.   Isn’t it time y0u took a walk on the wild side?
