Ashley Norton’s Durable Flat Black Finishes Offer a Bold Focal Point or a Hint of Understated Modern Elegance

(Pompton Plains, NJ, October 14, 2020) One of today’s hottest finishes—black—is everywhere in interiors, especially when it comes to architectural hardware. Ashley Norton’s sumptuous Matt Black (available for products made of solid bronze) and Flat Black (created for the solid brass line) finishes give designers, architects, builders, and homeowners a fresh, modern alternative to the silver-toned finishes that once dominated the market. They’re versatile finishes that coordinate with many of today’s most popular design styles, from traditional to modern. Plus, the company’s ultra-durable powder-coated finishes are extremely chip-resistant, standing the test of time even in the most heavily used doors and cabinets.

“Depending on the desired look, flat black finishes can serve as a bold focal point or a subdued, blended detail,” says Ashish Karnani, Vice President of Ashley Norton. “Not only are the finishes versatile, but Matt and Flat Black finishes pair perfectly with our clean-lined, modern hardware designs.”

After noting the popularity of the solid bronze collection’s Matt Black finish, Ashley Norton worked to create an ideal matt finish for their solid brass products as well. The resulting Flat Black finish means that the uniquely modern look is now available across all of the company’s architectural hardware collections.

Matt Black is a particularly striking finish for Ashley Norton’s solid bronze products since it allows you to see the distressing in each piece for that true “handmade” look and feel. And for those looking for a more rustic take on black, Vintage Black Iron is a finish that’s available for the Mystic Collection of knobs and pulls.

Beyond black, Ashley Norton offers a wide spectrum of durable, resistant, and long-lasting finishes including White Medium, Satin Brass, Dark Oil Rubbed, Light Bronze, and more.
