Set at the heart of London’s interior design community, Haute Déco specialises exclusively in luxury contemporary handles for prime residences. Its unique collection of couture door handles is famed for its individual house-style of understated glamour, adding character, individuality and a sense of atmosphere to contemporary interiors.
Established in 1994 by Marie-Véronique Swannell, the company has been championing the revival of decorative hardware since it couture opened its Kings Road showroom on London’s iconic Kings Road, now the centre of Chelsea Design Quarter, London’s interior design hub.
At a time when architectural ironmongery was limited to reproduction brass and industrial-style stainless steel, Marie-Véronique offered a fresh concept for hand-made, contemporary classic door furniture, branding Haute Déco as “the haute couture of door knobs”. More aptly described as door jewellery, Haute Déco’s hardware is in a league of its own: made with integrity, by hand and in time-honoured fashion, each handle bears the mark of true luxury, a “beauty from within” that is hard to define but easy to recognize.
Continuing to champion luxury decorative door handles, Haute Déco has built a collection of architectural and cabinetry hardware at once timeless and of the moment. Infused with a trademark house-style, the collection ranges from precious door jewellery to nature inspired rough luxury, across a spectrum of finishes developed and perfected in-house by applying time-honoured skills to modern-day materials.
Having their own dedicated production site in South-West England, Haute Déco’s handles are meticulously hand-made in a small scale atelier where the company has developed a unique savoir faire.
