“The hinges are the most important bit of hardware. … These hinges swing without any of the annoying slop in cheap hinges. I use them all the time.”
— Chris Schwarz on our PB-409 Hinge
Furniture hardware has been our specialty since 1936. The tooling Frank Horton made more than 70 years ago is used every day, and solid brass furniture hardware remains a staple for our company. We are proud to manufacture most of our pulls, knobs, hinges, and table hardware right here in our Connecticut factory.
If your house is like ours, the kitchen is the heart and soul of day to day living. Much of the richness of family life takes place in our kitchen. Family, friends, company—we all laugh, cry, live in this vibrant room. You’ve spent endless hours choosing design, cabinetry and appliances. So make sure to also choose hardware you will enjoy seeing—and handling—forever.
We are proud of the incredible products our blacksmiths create. All of our iron hardware is forged in coal or gas forges and then drawn out and shaped with a hammer and anvil. We use a linseed oil finish, and sometimes wax is added for color, sheen and preservation. This is the traditional method.
Our hardware is always in stock, there is no minimum order size and we have substantial quantity discounts.
Sustainability. We choose our packing materials with the planet in mind. We use popcorn and newspaper. The popcorn, made from cornstarch, is a harmless alternative to Styrofoam. It is completely biodegradable and dissolves in water. The newspaper we use represents the ultimate recycling. Our employees bring it in and we reuse it!
Another of our blacksmiths shall remain nameless, as she is somewhat camera shy. She and her family live in a beautiful part of rural Kentucky on an old farm.
Horton Brasses produces more than 1,000 different pieces of authentic reproduction furniture and cabinet hardware at our factory in Connecticut. We use brass, iron, and various hardwoods to make knobs, drawer pulls, hinges, shelf pegs, bed bolts, casters, hooks and even clock finials!
