High Point, North Carolina is known to most of the world as a furniture mecca, where Randall Bryant Terry Sr. founded the Dalton Furniture Company and helped to establish the International Home Furnishings Center. This year, the 1912 Tudor estate where the Terry family once lived was used as the 2015 Junior League of High Point Designer’s showhouse. 28 interior designers revamped the historical home. The results were covered in Traditional Home Magazine and Top Knobs once again made a beautiful appearance.
The large estate features an upstairs art retreat, which doubles as a dinette. The multi-purpose room was designed by Holly Hollingsworth Phillips who refers to the space as a “refuge for the global nomad.” The dinette area includes quartz countertops, hardware flooring, and a teak “hand” chair and coffee table, which the designer discovered in India.
Because the vaulted ceilings cause a lack of space, the room highly relies on cabinetry for storage. To pull the attention towards the darker cabinetry design, the designer used Top Knobs Cobblestone Pulls in Polished Brass, which brings a beautiful color into the room.
The Cobblestone Pulls are a part of the Top Knobs Cobblestone Collection, which includes both Knobs and Pulls in Brass Antique, Polished Brass, Coal Black and Polished Nickel.

Top Knobs has helped transform another beautiful kitchen, as seen in Signature Kitchens & Baths Magazine.
Designer Jill Brecheisin of Kitchens By Design was hired by the owners of a lakeside cottage in Michigan to transform their L-shaped kitchen into a beautiful entertainment destination for their friends, children and neighbors. While the original 31’ by 14’ was spacious, it lacked style and didn’t utilize all of the floor space to it’s maximum potential.
Using a custom planked decorative range hood as the focal point for the kitchen, the designer also included two island counters, one for food prep and one for dining. The antique white cabinetry was perfectly accented by Top Knobs cabinet hardware in Patina Rouge.
The remodeled kitchen includes knobs and pulls from the Normandy collection, as well as Somerset Finial from the Appliance Pull collection.

The Passport Collection from Top Knobs features designs from well known landmarks all over the world. One of the most familiar landmarks visited by patrons both near and far is the Trevi Fountain in Italy. Located in Rome, legend has it that if one throws a coin into the Trevi Fountain it will ensure their return to Rome someday.
The Trevi Fountain, or Fontana Di Trevi, is the largest baroque fountain in Rome. It stands at 85.28 feet high and 160.72 feet wide. Each day, the fountain spills over 2, 824, 800 cubic feet of water. The fountain itself is made out of travertine and carrara marble.
The same half dome that is seen above the fountain was the inspiration for Trevi Fountain pulls and knobs in the Passport Collection. The cross weaved design that is on the half dome can be seen in all of the styles of the Trevi Fountain pulls, cup pulls, and knobs.
All of the products in the collection are available in five unique finishes including German Bronze, Patina Rouge, Polished Nickel, Pewter Antique, and Tuscan Bronze.
Like all Top Knobs products, the Trevi Fountain series of the Passport Collection comes with a lifetime warranty and a protective seal finish.

Top Knobs was recently featured in a Houzz article written by contributor Becky Harris. The article entitled, “Family Kitchen Smartens Up With a New Ecofriendly Renovation” features a family with a passion for sustainability in Portland, Oregon.
The family hired Encircle Design and Build to help convert their kitchen into an ecofriendly space with some help from Top Knobs cabinetry hardware.
Before the transformation, the kitchen seemed disconnected to the rest of the house due to the dated cabinetry and wall colors. Because of limited cabinet space, pots and pans hung from the ceiling and clutter filled the countertops, making it an unfriendly environment for their two young children who loved spending time in the kitchen.
The new countertops that were installed were 30 inches wide instead of the original 12. New corner cabinets and a wraparound countertop allowed for additional storage space and a place for the children to finish their homework while their parents cooked.
To complete the look, designers used Top Knobs Square Knobs and Bar Pulls from the Nouveau III collection. The Square Knobs are 5/8″, while the Bar Pulls are 5 1/16″. The flat black finish accented the blue cabinetry perfectly, giving it a modern yet homey look.

To fulfill their promise of sustainability, all previous appliances were donated to a homeless shelter while the salvageable wood was donated to another nonprofit. Any items that could not be reused were responsibly recycled.
