I've lived in the city for decades and just recently found my way to the decorative hardware shop P.E. Guerin in Greenwich Village-and not a moment too soon. Founded in 1857, Guerin is the oldest firm of its kind in the United States, manufacturing some of the finest artistic metalwork in the country.

I have a weak spot for beautiful hardware.
Hexagon Door Knocker
 There are days I find myself stopping on the street to admire a front door embelished with a fantastc door knocker. 
If its fabulous and unique, its probably from Guerin.
Louis XVI Pull
I think the right door pull can instantly transform a plain cabinet 
Goth Door Knob
or front door

into something spectacular!
thank you all for the great response to the book giveaway Taste of Italy and congratulations to Jeanne at I Dream Of!

Their things are truly like small jewels/works of art. Absolutely gorgeous!

Our French Inspired Home said...

Their items are simply amazing. I am not familiar with them so I will certainly look them up.

I Dream Of said...

Oh! How fun to find myself a winner. I'm thrilled. Thanks Barbara!
Since we just gave our door a facelift with a fresh coat of paint I'm now looking at the hardware thinking it might need a makeover, too. Thanks for the inspiration! XO
PS: You can shoot me an email at and I'll send you my address.

Makes me want to go around my house and change the knobs! :) xoxo

designchic said...

I'm completely smitten with all of their gorgeous hardware - like you, I think beautiful hardware can transform any piece!

Cynthia said...

Love the knobs they make a huge impact on a home. Just beautiful


Garden, Home and Party said...

What amazing hardware. I agree, hardware can make or break certain areas of a kitchen, bath or entry. How fun to visit the store.
Have a great weekend.

Donna Vining said...

This is a fabulous company Barbara! Wish I could stop by their store in person and see all of their options instead of just a few at our stores.
