I was reminded of one of my first customers, back in 1993. He owned a hip furniture store in Palo Alto stocked with contemporary imports; a lot of smooth black veneers and clean lines. The cabinet knobs were merely a simple 1" cylinder in a matte silver finish.
I was amazed at how he used our knobs to create his own edgy style. He paired each one of the cylinders with one of our large Showstopper knobs to create an asymmetrical design scheme on cabinet doors and drawers. Got the picture? I wish I had one. It was pretty risky but I loved the originality.
Then there are the artists that make magic with old furniture pieces. Restoration projects can be quite industrious very often requiring stripping, sanding, patching and you name it - all the preparation that's needed to get the surface "paint ready".
Granted it's a lot of work. But you can see the results are undeniably rewarding. Here I thought I would share some of the makeovers from some of our professional customers. Love their knob picks!
