An interest in historic hardware has made this story from 2017 newly popular. If you’ve spent any time peering at the door hardware in a late 19th century Brooklyn house, you’ve probably spotted an Eastlake hinge or doorknob but perhaps not known what to call it. Eastlake was a popular design style in the late 19th century and is characterized by a combination of naturalistic and geometric patterns.
