Moderno and Carena are here!

The Moderno and Carena Suites have arrived! Now in stock at our warehouse and ready for immediate shipment, these two hardware suites are the first installment in our new “Contempo by Cliffside” hardware line. For full introductions, there are links throughout this e-mail, but you can see some beautiful images below.

Each suite is crafted from solid brass. They are made in Europe by fine artisanal craftsmen who understand the meaning of both quality and durability. In keeping up with trends, we are offering these contemporary suites not only in modern finishes, like Polished Chrome and Silver Satin (brushed nickel – goes great with stainless steel), but with transitional finishes like Old Antique (our oil-rubbed bronze) and Black. This enables you to coordinate nearly any space with your cabinet hardware!

Just because our hardware suites have appliance pulls doesn’t mean they’re only good for use in the kitchen. On the contrary: Moderno and Carena are perfectly at home being used in the bath (Carena in Chrome is particularly stunning) or on fine handcrafted furniture (the Old Antique finish is a great match here!).

The Moderno Suite

Moderno in Silver Satin

Sweeping lines and an elegant profile characterize our Moderno Suite. The blocky feet make a bold statement, and you’ll feel the quality as soon as you hold any piece in the suite. The craftsmanship of our solid brass manufacturing is second to none worldwide.

If you’re searching for these items on our website, the handles are (from the center):

  • MH-4 (cabinet handle, four inches on center)
    • Best suited for smaller drawers and cabinets
  • MH-6 (cabinet handle, six inches on center)
    • Best suited for tall cabinets (ceiling-height, especially when ceiling is 8 feet or higher), pantry doors, and wide drawers
  • MH-8 (appliance handle, eight inches on center)
    • Designed for dishwashers, under-counter refrigerators, and freezer drawers
  • MH-12 (refrigerator handle, twelve inches on center)
    • Use with any paneled refrigerator

The cup pull, MC-4 (left center) is a great alternative for drawers if you prefer an enclosed look. The two knobs, MK44 (left) and MK35 right) offer you different looks to mix and match on your cabinets.

 The Carena Suite

Carena in Polished ChromeCarena’s bold shape and strong curved elements make these pulls an instant winner. The design of the handles and the matching CK44 knob is deceptively simple, yet it lends itself perfectly to a wide variety of designs and styles. The weight of the CH-12 Carena solid brass contemporary refrigerator handle is nearly 3 pounds: quality you’ll never find with any other manufacturer.

If you’re searching for these items on our website, the handles are (from the right):

  • CH-4 (cabinet handle, four inches on center)
    • Best suited for smaller drawers and cabinets
  • CH-12 (refrigerator handle, twelve inches on center)
    • Use with any paneled refrigerator
  • CH-6 (cabinet handle, six inches on center)
    • Best suited for tall cabinets (ceiling-height, especially when ceiling is 8 feet or higher), pantry doors, and wide drawers
  • CH-8 (appliance handle, eight inches on center)
    • Designed for dishwashers, under-counter refrigerators, and freezer drawers

As mentioned, the matching contemporary knob CK44 (center front) incorporates the same blended, curved shape of the pulls, while the CK35 knob (left) borrows the shape of the pull face to create a pillow profile for the top of the knob. The matching cup pull CC-4 (far right) is an entirely original modern design that blends elements and shapes from throughout the suite.

What’s next?

Keep a watch on the blog for future new product announcements! Stainless steel is next, and it’s approaching awfully fast!

New product introduction: Contemporary and crystal

Cliffside Industries is proud to announce the addition of several new hardware sets to our line. Rather than our hardware suites, which are constructed from solid brass and bronze and stainless steel, these smaller “sets” give customers the opportunity to mix and match on a smaller scale. This line includes several new elegant crystal options, as well as a wide variety of choices in contemporary styles.

New European crystal

Cliffside Industries’ line of special-order crystal now includes several items using elements from Swarovski, the famed Austrian crystal manufacturer. In addition to our wide selection of lead crystal knobs, Cliffside now offers a selection of crystal pulls, shining like sparkling diamonds inset in polished chrome. In all, Cliffside has added 12 new items, including the CX100 series shown below.

Round crystal settings

New stainless steel

Having carried high-quality stainless steel lines for years in the form of the T305, T366, and D85 series pulls, Cliffside has now added four new lines of special-order stainless steel handles. The CX403 and CX404 series are nearly identical; both are an attractive square design with the same thickness maintained throughout the pull. The CX403 is thinner, at approximately 1/2“, while the CX404 offers a thickness of approximately 5/8“. Both are available in a variety of sizes (CX403-192-BNA shown below).

CX403-192-BNA

The CX753 and CX754 series are another alternative for those customer seeking a round shape that is not like the T305 and T366 that we already provide. Offering multiple sizes in both styles, the CX753 is a thinner, cylindrical shape, while the CX754 has a flatter, more elliptical bar with round feet. Shown below is the CX754 series in a 128mm (approximately 51/16“) center-to-center:

New contemporary sets

While Cliffside’s focus has always been traditional hardware, we do realize that there is an occasional demand for contemporary products. Therefore, we have added this special-order line to fill that need. With a variety of knobs and pulls in different sizes, Cliffside offers several different styles, all offered as shown on our website. Some series, like the Italian pieces shown below, are available in three finishes (Polished Chrome, Silver Satin, and Weathered Bronze):

Others, like the contemporary collection here, are available only in one or two colors.
