New patina hardware from Ashley Norton
White Medium develops a patina when exposed to the natural environment.
Ashley Norton, the Pompton Plains, N.J.-based designer and manufacturer of architectural hardware, has introduced its new White Medium patina.
Harmonizing with both traditional and modern design themes, the versatile pewter-toned shade is being called a “living finish” by Ashley Norton that changes over time and with use.
Handmade in small batches, White Medium develops a patina when exposed to the natural environment, allowing it to age gracefully throughout the life of the hardware.
As an oxidized version of the company’s already popular White Bronze finish (which shares the base metal), White Medium is an ideal transitional finish, the company said.
“The pewter coloring brings a naturally aged, transitional look to modern-style architectural hardware and when it’s used on hardware that’s more traditional in style, it feels more modern,” says Ashish Karnani, vice president of Ashley Norton. “By nature, the finish is genuinely versatile in its ability to blend in perfectly with multiple design and architectural themes.”
The White Medium patina is hand-applied to each art-grade bronze piece. As the metal oxidizes, the natural white color undergoes a transformation to a pewter-like patina. Due to minute fluctuations in temperature or humidity, each batch varies ever so slightly.
Ashely Norton also said the product is suitable for outdoor use.
