Long an outlet for designers and homeowners to express their personal aesthetics, door hardware just keeps getting more and more stylish. The most recent introductions take hardware to new heights of fashion with high-end finishes, modern silhouettes, unique options, and coordinating accessories without sacrificing security at the entry.

Right: Architect Frank Gehry lends his style to Valli & Valli's Fusital collection of lever handles. Hickory Hardware offers its Designer Collection of eight complete style suites. Entry handlesets, passage sets, hall and closet sets, dummy trims, and single and double deadbolts complete each suite. Each collection is available in a variety of popular and high-end finishes, such as oil-rubbed bronze, antique pewter, Sausalito silver, antique black copper, and espresso.

Hoppe's HLS 7 Series stainless-steel, multipoint locking system offers sleek, retro-infused modern styling along with heavy-duty security. A simultaneous retraction function enables all locking points to be retracted with one downward push of the handle, while an exterior lock-out feature allows the locking points to be engaged from the outside by lifting up on the handle. An integrated, above-the-handle cylinder housing makes for a clean, single-piece backplate that provides improved water resistance and easier installation. The maker's Quick-Fit Connection handle-mounting system allows installation without set screws. 888.485.4885. www.us.hoppe.com.
