About UsDo your doors need a makeover? Is the entrance to your room decidedly shabby but not chic? A pair of our glass fingerplates could transform your doors to statement pieces all on their own.
Kind Designs was set up as a family business supplying beautiful door fingerplates in 2011. Our inspiration came from an original Art Deco set of mirrored fingerplates found at auction, combined with a pair of antique French plates found at a flea market in the South of France. After a fruitless search for similar, to jazz up the rest of our doors, we decided to make our own - and Kind Designs was born.
Kind Designs is a husband-and-wife team, and we have devised and created every product in our range. We only design and make products that we'd love to have in our own home (and we do!) and all of the items are created by ourselves in South Devon. We have plenty more ideas in the pipeline, so please visit us again for more bespoke home accessories.
The fingerplates are created in the South West, using local craftsmen. The mirrored plates are available in traditional silver, bronze, silver grey and antique, beautifully constructed with a polished bevelled edge, which catches the light and sparkles. There are four coloured glass options - vibrant red, funky fuchsia, bright blue or glossy black with a plain polished edge for a contemporary look. All are completed with 2 countersunk screw holes, for easy fixing. We also have a natural grey slate version. They are a modern twist on the original brass, copper or ceramic fingerplates that featured on most interior doors from the mid-nineteenth century.
The coloured glass designs are constructed from an eco-friendly lacquered glass, and is produced by depositing and then baking a highly durable and resistant lacquer to one side of the glass. Unlike traditional coloured glass, this lacquered glass is lead free, formaldehyde free, arsenic free, and radon free, making them a truly safe and hygenic choice.
We sandblast the starburst pattern on each plate individually by hand, and the sandblasting is carried out on the back of the glass, giving that frosted opaque glass look to the star, whilst keeping the surface of the fingerplate smooth to the touch.
Our designs work wonderfully in any setting - luxuriously opulent, shabby chic vintage, or glossy contemporary. You could even 'glam up' your wardrobe doors - any door could benefit from a sparkling fingerplate! Decorative yet practical, they also protect your beautiful waxed, oiled or painted doors from grubby fingerprints!
From jazzing up a simple beach hut, to adding a new dimension to a stately country mansion, Kind Designs fingerplates will bring a touch of chic reflection to your interiors.
