We see the beauty in the design of everyday things.
The modern house number is not simply a marker to identify a location and orient visitors. When well-designed, a house or door number can complement an architectural design, complete the details of the facade, or simply give a personal touch to the public face of your dwelling. We designed our authentic house number collections carefully considering size, color, trim and typeface. Each collection contains our recommended sizes and shapes for house numbers; all color combinations are high contrast.

As modern-day house numbering systems began to emerge in the nineteenth-century Europe, enameled porcelain signs became ubiquitous throughout northern Europe. By the 1850s, porcelain house numbers and street signs were produced in large quantities, albeit by hand. Traditionally fabricated with a rich blue background and white numbers, this color combination became characteristic of the era. Sometimes referred to as “French house numbers”, these blue handcrafted weatherproof house numbers became less available by the end of the Second World War, when other forms of sign production replaced older techniques.
