(Welcome to Alyson from New York, a blogger trying out for a spot on the Re-Nest editorial team. Enjoy!)

I recently visited my cousin's ranch house in Studio City, California and what I noticed about the stunning space was that they picked functional hardware with gorgeous detail to give their interiors an extra push, or pull in this case. Personally, I love Rocky Mountain Hardware's knobs, levers, knockers and accessories, which use recycled art-grade bronzes as well as hand crafting and finishing techniques. I'm a sucker for one-of-a-kind hardware, particularly when the materials are 90 percent recycled and the products are produced locally in Idaho.

Recently, this earth-friendly company launched initial collaborations with two top interior designers. The Roger Thomas Paris Collection includes 11 bronze-casted, hand-carved pieces inspired by the dramatic and whimsical aesthetic of 17th and 18th Century French decorative arts. The Ted Boerner Collection features 27 sculptural designs with chunky handles and asymmetrical knobs and pulls produced with sand and investment-casting techniques that will be sure to knock your guests' socks off on their way in.

See the full collection here.

Thanks, Alyson!
