About Us

Hard & Ware was born out of the desire to create and explore new design possibilities within the hardware industry. Founder James Muggleton has experience in the high-end luxury fit-out industry as a cabinet maker and most recently a product designer for the family-owned business. 

Whilst working predominantly with door hardware, H&W has exciting products in development that will extend its offerings into the lighting and décor markets.
