Ian Smith is the designer behind the award winning range of pewter hardware. Ian was interested in design from an early age, becoming a silversmith with his own hallmark at 16 years old, which he credits to having grown up in the same village as the famous sculptor Henry Moore. A chance meeting with an interior designer led him to start designing and manufacturing door hardware 15 years ago, and become part of the DJH Group in 2005.
Finesse Design have their own engineering shop where many patterns are produced using CNC machining. Production moulds are then made and the raw material is mixed to their own high specification. The Finesse Design factory is ranked amongst one of the best in the world for Pewter casting. Having invested in the latest technology casting machines as well as keeping a hand pouring facility for larger items, there is a level of detail and care in production that clearly shows through in the final product. Once cast each piece goes through a unique finishing process developed by Finesse themselves. Finally, each piece is hand assembled and checked, and then carefully packed.

All the directors here have Finesse Handles in their own properties, so that must say something! Although there are a number of places selling Finesse products we are the only showroom in the UK with a full display and stock actually on the shelves”
All Finesse Design products are primarily designed for internal domestic use. When used externally, over time the appearance of outer handles will alter due to weathering - we do not recommend for external use in coastal areas or for exposure to harsh weather environments.
