I honestly believe that our products make people happier every time they see them. We create them with love and I think that home renovators can sense that. I'm glad so many more people will have the opportunity to experience our unique range.

Architectural Classics has been known since 1980 as pre-eminent European suppliers of period style door furniture and home hardware.

They are expanding their range to also include modern classics in architecture, and one of their most exciting new suppliers is Les Verreries de Brehat, a French glass-blowing studio.

This most recent addition brings the number of Architectural Classics' suppliers to 29, with products numbering in the thousands.

Niall McDonagh, Architectural Classics founder and managing director, is thrilled about the union.

"You honestly need to see Les Verreries de Brehat range to truly appreciate it. Their products bring animation and personality to the modern door furniture scene. It is always superb to work with such artistic people, who are so passionate about quality".

In a commercial world dominated by large multinational corporations, Les Verreries de Brehat stands out. A small community of glass artisans creates hand-blown and mouth-finished glass door knobs and other homewares on the French island of Brehat.

Every product is truly unique - no two patterns of swirls and bubbles will exactly match another. They recently won the Entreprise du Patrimoine Vivant award from the French state for innovation in business, and while their techniques may be traditional, their equipment is state-of-the-art and designed to be environmentally friendly.

Their recent accomplishments include the Dior stand at Le Bon Marche, Le Plaza Athenee, Bobino in Paris and Le Grand Hotel in St-Jean-de-Luz.

Yves Neumager of Les Verreries de Brehat is elated that the exclusive products will now receive such great exposure.

"I honestly believe that our products make people happier every time they see them. We create them with love and I think that home renovators can sense that. I'm glad so many more people will have the opportunity to experience our unique range."

Products from the Verreries de Brehat range will be available at http://www.architecturalclassics.com/verr starting from the 28th of May.
