This New York-based firm headed by accomplished musician, actor, designer, Lenny Kravitz, teamed up with Rocky Mountain Hardware to create Trousdale. Inspired by the architecture of the famed Trousdale Estates neighborhood in Beverly Hills—an enclave of mid-century modern homes that was put on the map in the 1950s and 60s by its celebrity residents—the series features sleek architectural elements with angular profiles and a strong textural effect. Trousdale marks Kravitz Design’s first foray into the hardware category, and typifies Kravitz’s own personal edgy and elegant point of view for which his namesake firm has earned kudos and respect for with achievements in commercial and residential interior design, product development and branding since it was established in 2003.
