Company Information

Our Mission

At House of Antique Hardware we believe period homes were designed and built with a rare integrity. For those of us compelled to restore that integrity, we share a responsibility: to stay true to the original design, materials and workmanship. At House of Antique Hardware, there are no short cuts to reproducing the past. We have one of the largest selections of original and authentic reproduction hardware on the web, and sales staff dedicated to matching the most faithful restoration project.

Company History

House of Antique Hardware was founded in 1999. With a reputation for quality products and qualified sales support, we have grown into one of the premier online retailers for both authentic antique and vintage reproduction hardware.

We’ve been featured in hundreds of magazine articles, dozens of television programs and national media, including the New York Times, Redbook, and Bob Vila’s This Old House. We have contributed to various historical renovation and restoration projects for Federal, State, and local municipalities as well as commercial and residential clients.

As our product offering has expanded and our customer ranks have increased, the company has grown in physical size and the number of employees. In 2007, we moved to our current location in the Central Eastside District of Portland, Oregon - a city rich with architectural heritage, a strong preservation community and a keen appreciation for authenticity.

Our growth has been marked by a strong commitment to giving our customers the best Internet shopping experience we can provide. Our web site was re-designed and re-launched in 2005 and we continually update it with more information, resources and features designed to serve the diverse needs of the renovation and restoration community. You will find a finish reference guide, architectural history timeline and a hardware help resource.

Since the beginning we have believed that offering quality products, fair prices and excellent customer service is the right way to build a business that will stand the test of time. On behalf of everyone at House of Antique Hardware, thank you for your support over the years!
