Introducing Our Barn Door Collaboration with Kim Lewis

 

In last week’s blog post we introduced Kim Lewis, an incredible designer who is best known for her work as the Lead Designer for ABC’s “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” and DIY’s “Tiny House Nation”. Kim is also the designer behind our latest line of location-inspired barn doors.

We have always loved Kim’s work and the way she is able to inspire and create meaning with her designs. We are thrilled to be collaborating with Kim Lewis and excited to further introduce you to our inspiring project. We first met Kim by supplying her with our products for a project she was doing for Actress Tiffani Amber Thiessen. This led to working on another project with Kim, this time providing hardware for a door she designed. Not only did her door design blow us away, but our followers and customers proved how great it was by making what she had created go viral! We knew immediately that we wanted to collaborate with Kim again and have her join the Rustica family.

It has been so great to work with Kim to design three barn door styles for three location-inspired tiny houses, resulting in the creation of the Joshua Tree Door, The Marfa Door, and the Palm Springs Door.

Inspiration from Joshua Tree, Palm Springs, and Marfa TX

Inspiration from Joshua Tree, Palm Springs, and Marfa TX

Each Tiny House (and door) is inspired by real and iconic locations, which heavily influenced Kim as a designer. These doors take in the colors, feel, texture, and atmosphere of their respective locations for beautiful and intricate results. From the Joshua Tree National Park and Palm Springs, California, to Marfa, Texas, each door has a rare and inspired beginning.

Each door started as an idea, then a sketch and a mood board, which then led to the finished barn doors. Each door is unique, beautiful, and the perfect fit for the location from which they are inspired. Not only that but they will brighten and inspire you in your home. Since we are so excited to bring this line to life, we wanted to let you in on a sneak preview of the door designs and the story behind the inspiration.

This door was inspired by Marfa, Texas, a quirky little town in west Texas that is popular for its fun and funky feel.

 

We love being a part of this collaboration and being able to learn with Kim. It has been a pleasure working on these doors, the places they represent, and the unique designs that they convey. We can’t wait to introduce you to each of the doors in the upcoming weeks!

Rustica Lock Measuring Guide

Measuring Distance

This is the measurement from the top of your door to where you'd like the lock handle. This measurement allows you the flexibility to place the locking mechanism where it will not interfere with any existing handles or fixtures pre-mounted to the door. You'll need at least 2-1/8" clearance below. See Picture

Hole Placement

Introducing an easy solution to little ones slamming your barn door! Our new Closure soft-stop system slows you door down before it makes contact with the track stop. This ensures a smooth stop every time. The Closure system has been specially designed to be universal with all Rustica Hardware flat track systems, no matter the length of track this product will work with your flat track system. Product comes with (2) Closure mechanisms (one for each side of the track system) to protect your system whether it’s being opened or closed.

If you're just replacing a slab, fill in the exact measurements of the existing slab. If you're purchasing your slab with a jamb then a good rule of thumb is to measure your rough openings width and remove 2", that will be the width you want to input on the site. For height measure from the floor to the top of the rough opening and remove 2.25", this will be the height you need to input for the height.

Measure the existing slab, that you're wanting to replace, from the top of the door to the top of each hinge. You will format your entry in this format: Hinge 1- 10" from top of door. Hinge 2- 22.

Select which side of the door you'd like your pull/handle to be located when facing the front side of the door (the side of the opening in which you can see your track/rolling system). The back side handle will be placed on the same side of the door as your front side handle.

NOTE: The current lead time for Brushed Steel and Brushed Stainless Steel on the Box system type is 7 weeks.

Hinge Placement Instruction

Measure the existing slab, that you're wanting to replace, from the top of the door to the top of each hinge. You will format your entry in this format: Hinge 1- 10" from top of door. Hinge 2- 22.
