We reproduce the best of classic American lighting and hardware not just because they were handsome then, but because they are still handsome and relevant now. The right piece of “house jewelry” can elevate any space.
Hollywood seems to agrees with us. Our hardware and lighting has popped up all over the filmscape, and I’d like to share one of my favorites appearances with you.
2004′s The Aviator is worth watching for so many reasons: the cinematography, the editing, the script, the actors. (I would like to live in a parallel universe where Cate Blanchett makes her living as a Katherine Hepburn impersonator.)
But of course our favorite part is where the Jenkins door set makes its cameo.
I can’t help but think that the Jenkins deserves better than to be used as a tool to menace a crazed Leonardo DiCaprio, but it’s nice to know it can hold its own in a scene with such heavy-hitters.
We can be found “in the wild” like that all the time, but rarely are we so front-and-center. Have you noticed us in movies or TV shows? Share your favorites in the comments.
