• It’s made of nickel-plated, satin-polished steel — the new silver standard in modern metals.
  • It looks as cool in a minimalist manse as it does in an Arts and Crafts cottage. Thank the designer, Richard Goloveyko.
  • It’s made by a little metal-fabrication firm in Philadelphia where even the shop guys have architecture degrees.
  • It makes a much grander welcome in your entry hall than some dumb old wobbly wooden thing. $320. Veyko Design, (215) 928-1349,
