Aspen Collection Featured in Napa Valley Revival

In Napa Valley, California 22 designers transformed three properties on historic Randolph street to be part of the 2015 Napa Valley Showhouse, held in conjunction with and benefiting the Napa Valley Film Festival. Traditional Home Magazine gave readers a tour of the homes, including the project “267 Randolph Street” where Top Knobs decorative hardware was featured.

Traditional Home ShowhouseIn the kitchen and breakfast area, designers Lori Gilder and Rebecca Reynolds collaborated to create a bright design that played off the popular subway tile installation. “A crisp white backdrop was the ideal canvas for building the layers of this classic yet modern kitchen,” says Lori Gilder.

The building owners chose to restore the carriage shed and transform it into a vacation cabin rental with a modern twist.

Handcrafted excellence in decorative hardware

Top Knobs strives to offer designers decorative cabinet hardware that’s crafted with tradition and built to last. That’s where the Aspen and Aspen II Collections come in. Both are created from 90% recycled bronze and hand-finished for a beautiful, elegant style at an affordable price.

Raw bronze

Raw bronze, the beginnings of the Top Knobs Aspen Collection.

What began 5,000 years ago as the standard for creating art, jewelry and armor has become the standard of excellence. Intricate copper formulas and traditional casting techniques are infused into each handcrafted Top Knobs design.

Each piece is coated with a proprietary sealed finish that helps Aspen’s light patina and natural distressed look stay protected from age and wear.

Every Aspen piece is hand-cast and hand finished, which accentuates the one-of-a kind look and feel. Made with solid castings of artisan grade bronze, the quality of Top Knobs can be felt in the palm of your hand.
