Matte Black front door entry handlesets are not making a comeback, in today's home designs. The finish never left. The deep black finish brings a certain "stregth" to any door or home. Perfect on light colored doors for an eye catching contrast. Great on dark doors, enhancing the rich finish of the front of your home. Of course, no finish is closer to perfect, on a decorative iron, front door or gate, than the Matte Black finish.
