hardware roundup: 40 of my favorites


Oh man, I am finishing up this guide at the last minute because I had such a hard time editing things down! Last night we had a loud rain storm in Martha’s Vineyard that kept me up so I was working until two or three in the morning picking out my favorite knobs, pulls, door bell buttons, and escutcheons to put in today’s hardware guide. Years ago I did a hardware roundup for Domino‘s website but I figured it was way past due for a new one. So I hope you’ll enjoy this selection of stylish hardware for your home! Hardware is one of the easiest (and often cheapest) ways to update your room or furniture, so I hope you’ll find something here to inspire an update! In terms of pricing, almost everything here is under $25, but I’ve included a few splurge-worthy items like blown-glass doorknobs and vintage designs if you’re looking to make a real statement with your hardware. Enjoy! xo, grace

I could look at hardware all day. Thanks for sharing some very cool options. Now, to find something to attach it all to…

Laura

know of any place to get good lamp finials? I’m having a hard time finding good web sites…

Love this! I never realized what a difference hardware makes until I recently put a Moroccan-style shell pull from Anthropologie on my mom’s antique pine breakfront. From country-style to country-chic in no time!

I got a card for 15% off at Anthropologie for my b-day so I went and got some knobs I’ve been wanting. I got #7 and the knob version of #8 (urchin) on the Color board. The urchin pulls would look perfect on my old dresser, but at $18 bucks each, I can’t afford 6. I love the shape of the Ripe Melon Pull. Ikea’s Edland furniture has a similar pull and I wish they’d sell it by itself cuz I love it.

Alisha

Um Octopus Pull for the win! That thing is amazing and I want it! Thanks for this totally fun round up.

Ana

Excellent roundup as always. Of course my favorite piece of hardware is the one with a pink rose painted on it (#2 in the second grou). I wonder if I will ever stop being so girly! xo, A

Tammy

You knocked it out of the park. Splendid! And what, pray tell, is the function of a “swedish escape knob”? I think we all need one of those, by the sounds (and looks) of it.

Mary

Love, love, love! We just moved and I am looking for some little touches just like this. Thanks for sharing!

Erin

I spotted that foxy door knocker a few weeks back in an antique shop for only $12 and had it in my hand to buy, but wasn’t sure if it would fit my door, so I put it back. I still love it.

Liz

I LOVE that octopus pull! Now I need to go find something to put it on! I love pretty hardware so much. After about ten years of pushing her, I recently got my mom to buy new hardware for her kitchen. It’s such a simple way to give great new life! I want the blue Jeweler’s knobs for my kitchen but there would be no point to attaching anything that pretty to my (literally) moldy old cupboards. Can’t wait until I can save up for a kitchen remodel even more now!

I love the nature inspiration. Any ideas where I could find faucets & accompanying knobs in the same vein? I am searching for something along the lines of a whimsical bird for a bathroom faucet. Thanks!

susan

It is nice to see unique hardware coming back. I am positively so tired of the boring satin nickel bar pulls. Unique hardware creates personality!

janny

love it! thanks for sharing! i’m in search of the perfect one to add to my future DIY small side table.

Susie

Just redid my kitchen with all new cabinets. Was going to use the old knobs and pulls (recycling is a good thing), but saw some really styl’n pulls that match my basket collection. A big win. Thanks for showing how much impact you can get from new hardware!
