New Finishes for STUDIO BRASS 2022:

Finish introductions for The Ace Knob and the Spoke Knob include:
  • Matte White
  • Satin Rose Gold
  • French Antique
  • Pewter

Matte White


Emtek’s new Matte White borrows inspiration from recent trends in plumbing and lighting. It offers a unique, contemporary look, while staying focused on future trends. 

Perfect for both blending in or standing out, Matte White can meld with a monotone backdrop, but works equally well when paired as a pop of contrast to a black door or a neutral interior.


Satin Rose Gold

The delicate color pairs surprisingly well with the utilitarian function of the Spoke knob, and the industrial texture of The Knurled Ace Knob. These new finishes are available for The Ace Knob (both smooth and knurled versions) and the Spoke knob, as well as several of Emtek’s Modern Brass Rosettes (including Disk, Quincy, Square and Urban Modern).

French Antique

Introducing the popular French Antique finish to  Studio Brass provides a burnished brass tone in a more modern product profile. French Antique is a great, more cost-effective alternative to the look of Unlacquered Brass without the additional upkeep and it doesn’t require a delay for a patina to develop. This sealed finish it designed to look like aged brass right out of the box.


Expanding our Pewter finish to this product category provides a modern, trend-forward “gunmetal” gray option for modern product silhouettes. A classic look, made modern when paired with The Ace Knob, Spoke, or our modern rosette options.
