Brushed Stainless Steel

Popular and timeless, Brushed Stainless Steel is a muted stainless finish with a low reflection. Thanks to its silvery sheen, this classic finish works well with both traditional and contemporary fabrics alike—particularly ones in pale tones—such as Belgian Flax Linen in Optic White as well as cool ones, like Organic Cotton in Cool Lavender, that shouldn’t compete with overly flashy hardware.


Brushed Carbon

If you’re searching for drapery hardware that makes a statement, then Barn & Willow’s Brushed Carbon finish is the solution for you. A brushed finish that provides a muted luster with a low reflection, Brushed Carbon works best with earth toned fabrics, like Organic Cotton in Hemp and soft neutrals, such as Belgian Flax Linen in Oatmeal, that really allow the hardware to shine.  


Flint Satin

A modern take on traditional black, Barn & Willow’s Flint Satin offers a chic matte finish with very little reflection. Designed to look smooth and sleek, Flint Satin provides a nice contrast to fabrics with similar tones, particularly rich grays including Belgian Flax Linen in Stone Gray and Organic Cotton in Fog.
