Earlier this month I joined a small gathering of bloggers and interior designer Eric Cohler for a fun and interactive afternoon hosted by Amerock. Cohler’s designs have appeared regularly on the pages of Elle Décor, House Beautiful and many other publications. The working lunch was at Eric Cohler’s office in NYC. His office is gorgeous. His attention to details from the grasscloth covered walls to the zebra print covered waste can was inspiring.
Eric Cohler has collaborated with Amerock and curated the AmerockNow collection. With his artistic eye, he has categorized the hardware by region making it easy for the consumer to find the look they seek. The collection’s new finishes and styles blends well with both contemporary décor and traditionally styled interiors.
Themed categories allows consumers to see specific design esthetics for regional styles making hardware selections for their project easier. Cohler explains, hardware is like jewelry for the kitchen. An economical way to give your kitchen a new look is to change the hardware.
The descriptive names of the eight AmerockNOW families—#BiCoastal, #NortheastHome, #Heartland, #LondonUndone, #Lodge, #PhoenixRising, #LAExperience and #CityBeat.
What’s new in hardware design? Featured in Masion& Objet, Cohler predicts we will see more brushed copper in US design. The “living finish” is warm and rustic with its patina always changing in time as you touch it.
Cohler spoke gracefully about design. In his book, Cohler On Design, he shares his love for art and the influence of art in his designs. We had a little fun and complete two DIY projects.
Thank you Amerock and Eric for a delightful afternoon on design. Take a closer look at the curated collection here and find your style. Consumers will save both time and money thanks to Cohler’s curated hardware collection, AmerockNow.
