Friday Foundry Walkabout…And a Little Sneak Peek

With the holiday weekend upon us, our Craftsmen are busy-busy wrapping up projects and lovingly packaging pieces for shipment.  Below are some shots taken this morning – most notably custom deco door pulls and a little sneak peek of a new hardware collection we will be launching shortly!  See if you can spot what’s new!

Happy Friday! Happy Spring!


Spring has finally arrived in the Northeast…we’re delighted to at last feel some warmth and take in the colors!  Hence a little inspiration for this group shot of SA Baxter knobs, levers, hinges, and pulls finished in satin burnished nickel.

Feature This! A Nod from The Schemer

The Schemer, a new UK-based Design and Architecture Newsletter, has featured our new Centre/Center Door Knobs.  We wish the folks at the Schemer the best of luck with their new venture!

2013 Trends from our Friends @ Elle Decor: “Lots of Brass”

If you have been following our blog, it will be no surprise to you that we love our brass finishes.  Burnished brass and antique brass exude such a charming warmth, as we all know.  Elle Decor has proclaimed “Lots of Brass” for a 2013 Trend.  We have been seeing a resurgence of brass finishes within the past couple of years – brass is versatile, and  of course a classic.


SA Baxter’s Project-Ready Bamboo-Inspired Door Hardware, Suite 9507, finished in Antique Brass.

We believe that door and cabinet hardware in brass finishes are timeless, and long outlive a trend.  The long-term benefits of brass finishes are: the natural beauty of the aging/patina process, the never-ending ability to refresh the finish, and the antimicrobial properties of brass finishes.  To take advantage of these brass benefits though, please hold on the lacquer (=

Product Launch! Announcing Project-Ready Hardware…Our New Collection of Quickship Door Hardware!

SA Baxter is proud to introduce our Project-Ready line of high-end architectural hardware – Beautiful doorknobs, levers, and accessories finished to order with an unprecedented 2-4 week quickship lead-time. Project-Ready hardware is available in nine select finishes: Polished Nickel, Burnished Nickel, Polished Brass, Antique Brass, Dark Brass, Polished Chrome, Polished Solid Bronze, Antique Solid Bronze, and Dark Solid Bronze.


Our Latest Hardware Collection, Project-Ready Hardware, finished in Antique Brass.

Eight new alluring styles, from classic to modern including art-deco and transitional styles. Best of all, pricing is sensible due to volume production, without sacrificing our world class quality. All pieces are crafted in our own eco-friendly foundry and atelier in the Hudson Valley of New York State, with total end-to-end control of the fabrication process.

Our base metals are environmentally friendly lead free brass and silicon bronze. We are perhaps the only hardware manufacturer in the world that can say this. Beyond this, SA Baxter is the only hardware manufacturer to offer solid bronze hardware as opposed to others who offer “brass with a bronze-like patina” in such sophisticated styles and at such competitive price points. SA Baxter’s Project Ready hardware is both high-end and affordable.
