Modern Door Hardware - Simplicity by Nova Hardware

I truly hate shopping for "modern" hardware of any kind. Seriously. It is so hard to find something simple, good looking and affordable. We had the same issues with picking out kitchen cabinet hardware so it took us foreva to pick something out! That was just for the kitchen, now we're committing to more expensive hardware for the ENTIRE house!

Last weekend we were going through the options and I defeatedly said something like this to Micheal:

"I guess I see us going with something like this. I don't really like it, but I think it's probably going to be what we get."

Quite the ringing endorsement eh? :) So we kept looking and I happened across a line of modern door knobs by a newer company named Nova Hardware. According to their website, it's a small company founded in 2006 that has a line of 9 products consisting of 8 door handles and 1 door stopper. They offer a Limited Lifetime Warranty and the prices are very reasonable.

We decided on the "Simplicity" style handle.

Here is the description from the Nova Hardware Website:

"You’ll fall fast and hard for the simple design of this Simplicity door lever. It is made from beautifully durable stainless steel that will stand up to years and years of active use while retaining its good looks and providing you with optimal performance. It is design to fit all standard home and office doors, and its unique look will blend seamlessly into any decor. It is guaranteed by the manufacturer for life, and can be installed as a right-handed or left-handed lever. It has concealed screws and hardware, so it installs with a seamless look that is svelte and contemporary.

Reversible left or right handed
Concealed screws
2 3/4 inch rosette
Fits doors 1 1/4 inch to 1 3/4 inch"

We ended up ordering from Amazon because they were available with Prime shipping (WOOHOO!) and the option of easy returns to Amazon for the reasonable price of $29.99. It was a bit of a risk as they are a newer company and there was not much on the web about people's experiences having purchased these handles, but given the limited options we were willing to take the risk.

I was like a little kid on Christmas morning when the UPS guy knocked on our door just two short days later! LOVE AMAZON PRIME!

It was very nicely packed and included all of the possible accessories you could ask for.

So far it appears to be a very sturdy handle. A nice satin nickel finish and very sleek/simple look. Micheal is working on installing it as I type! Yay!

I was just about to order more Modernus Style by Nova Hardware for my new project when i came across this listing. I Read every single word you wrote and i totally agree with you that they are small but with the right products and price. I ordered 19 including dummy's for my last project and one of them seemed like it had a problem, So even tho i never bought it directly from nova they sent out a new one while i was on the phone with the customer service department. What a pleasant surprise. In the end of the day we figured out that it was installed incorrectly and offered to sent back the free replacement that we got from Nova, but they told us not to worry about it. I Am shocked!!! I will only stick with these guys since i am also a New Yorker just like them.By the way next project will probably be with Granata style. Thank you for posting this i think it should help ppl to choose what they want.
