This is the only open-to-the-public showroom featuring the designs of Decorative Hardware Studio (DHS), a longtime, highly regarded custom manufacturer of museum quality decorative hardware. Since its inception in 1982, the line of fine quality period and contemporary hardware—‘We call it jewelry for the home,’ says Marie Prezner, co-owner of the company—has found its way into a New Delhi hotel, a host of Las Vegas casinos, and Carnegie Hall as well as on the set of the film Mrs. Doubtfire and Jimmy Fallon’s talk show. Manufactured elsewhere in Chappaqua, the DHS collection features solid brass as its base metal and is available in 20 custom finishes. Each piece, including cabinet knobs, stair rods, tapestry rods, locks, hinges, and drapery hardware, is hand cast or machined, then hand polished to a rich finish. Refinishing and restoration services also available.
