PRICE INCREASE!

As a leading distributor of decorative and functional hardware for over 50 years, Berenson is committed to providing superior customer service as well as providing excellent pricing on all of our brands.

 

While we are proud of the fact that we have held our pricing for a long time, as of August 1st we will be implementing a price increase of 5% to 7%, depending on the product category, to recover rising costs, particularly, the devaluing of the Canadian dollar...10% over the last 12 months!

 

We are painfully aware of the impact cost increases can have on your business and your ability to remain competitive. The reality is all of our competitors are facing the same challenges and many have already introduced their own increases, while others will be forced to do so in the near future.

 

Please contact your sales representative or head office should you have any questions or require specific information. Thank you for your continued business.

THE DEVIL IS IN THE DETAILS
by Barbara Nyke, Nikka Design
Designing exciting and inviting kitchens is a combination of great style and smart functionality customized for the homeowner. Cabinets with the right decorative hardware - handles and pulls - can either make or break the 'wow' quotient.

 

Three key criteria to consider when selecting handles are: cabinetry & hardware style,
hardware finish and functionality & ergonomic design.


The right hardware will complement the colour and style of cabinetry and create a seamless look with the overall kitchen design - just as the wrong hardware can make a stronger, negative statement
and ruin the overall design.

Muskoka Collection
An eye-catching finishing detail for traditional shaker-style cabinetry is a streamlined handle with contemporary styling and in a finish that has a nod to the past, but in an updated colouration like this Venetian bronze.
Pop-culture shows like "Mad Men" have helped to drive the popularity of mid-century modern interior design. A kitchen designed in this style can avoid becoming ironic by including streamlined stainless steel hardware for an added contemporary design element.
Virtuoso Collection

Although classic kitchen design will always endure, what's on trend in 2014 and borrowed from the fashion world is a definite eclecticism through the influence of fashion-inspired hardware, the use of organic materials such as stone and leather and in updated metal finishes.

A common finish in the early 1900's. Copper brings traditional values to any design setting.

As we see in other parts of the home, the standard cool metals of chrome and nickel have taken a back seat to warm metal tones, like champagne brass and bronze. Copper has also made a resurgence in kitchen design with various finishes now available, ie: brushed and polished for faucets, sinks and decorative hardware.

Not all hardware works the same for each person. Knobs and pulls with small surface diameters and narrow, thin handles can be difficult to grab and pull for people with larger hands, the aging population and for those with arthritis. It's best to look for oversized knobs, wider circumference handles, textured surfaces and cup pulls. 
 
A glossy black finish that is highlighted
with silver undertones, Black Nickel can be classified as transitional or traditional.
From Milan Furniture
Fair 2014

This year's world-renowned fair had many exhibitors showcase products that responded to the fast-paced world we live in with products based on organic and natural materials for furnishings, flooring, lighting and decorative hardware. Some designers at the fair were inspired by the eruption of Mount Etna in November 2013, using lava rock to make stools and coffee tables in a high-gloss finish polished to the deepest shade of black. Berenson's interpretation of this would be their Black Nickel finish.
