CLEARLY, ACRYLIC!
 

"I can see clearly now," Johnny Nash sang years ago. And Jimmy Cliff. And it turns out, Gladys Night sang it. And Brenda Lee.

We added acrylic touches in three of our collections: ClearviewPacific Beach, and Pacific Grove. We love working with the clear look and have been pleased at how well brass and acrylic work together.

The Clear Appeal of Acrylic

We used clear acrylic in bars to hold towels and to add interesting touches to designs in smaller, wall-mounted pieces like toilet tissue holders and toothbrush holders.

Acrylic adds a fun touch to hardware detail. It's also very strong and resistant to moisture, making it an excellent material to use in a damp humid environment like a bathroom or sauna. Combined with brass' tough, anti-corrosive qualities you've got a highly durable piece of hardware.

Here's one of our best-selling brass and acrylic pieces: a towel bar from our Clearview collection, shown here in an brushed bronze finish. The brass rings that secure the bar in place are in a dotted style, one of four ring styles we offer - the others are smooth, twisted, and grooved.

This towel bar comes in 18", 24" and 30" lengths. We also have a double-bar styled with gentle curves and in the same dimensions, plus a 36" option.

We offer 17 complementary standard finishes including matte black, white, and gray. Like all our pieces, you can select a customized color for a small fee. If you have a particular design style in mind, please contact us to discuss it!

Pacific Style & Temperament

Every now and then we remember that "pacific" actually means calm and peaceful, unlike the ocean that bears this name. (If you've been in the Pacific Ocean you know what we're talking about.)

Still, the word "pacific" evokes cool, modern mood which we sought to bring to our two Pacific collections. Here are two examples:

 
The wall-mounted soap dish above is from our Pacific Grove collection in an antique pewter finish with the twisted ring style. The towel ring comes from its cousin Pacific Beach, shown here with a grooved ring style in a polished brass finish.

Speaking of groovy, did you know Sonny and Cher also performed "I Can See Clearly Now"?
