Ten Years of Dakota

Since its introduction in 2007 the Top Knobs Dakota collection has been a go-to choice for kitchen and bath designers for rustic yet contemporary decorative hardware. The collection has expanded since its launch and now includes 21 different knob, pull and cup pulls in a combination of 11 finishes.  With so many choices, which piece will you select to reflect your personal style?

Available at kitchen and bath showrooms nationwide, each piece in the Top Knobs Dakota Collection includes a proprietary sealed finish and Top Knobs lifetime warranty. Here we highlight the three main pieces in the collection: the Charlotte Pull, the Bergen Knob and the Dakota Cup Pull.

The Charlotte Pull

There’s a reason the Charlotte Pull has been a Top Knobs best seller for years. This gentle cabinet pull features a smooth handle and subtly flairs out in a circle shape at the base.  This thin, delicate style matches nearly any decor.

It is offered in three sizes, 3”, 4” and 6” center-to-center dimensions, with a coordinating 2 9/16” cup pull.

The Dakota Collection Charlotte Pull is available in seven finishes: Brushed Satin Nickel (BSN), Oil Rubbed Bronze (ORB), Patina Rouge (PAR), Polished Chrome (PC), Polished Nickel (PN), Pewter Antique (PTA), and Tuscan Bronze (TB).

The Bergen Knob

A style chameleon, the flat topped 1 ¼” Bergen Knob finds a home in any kitchen or bath. Depending on the finish selected, the knob adds either a contemporary or a traditional accent wherever it is installed. This style is one of Top Knobs Product Manager Christine Zimmer’s favorite pieces because of its versatility.

The Dakota Collection Bergen Knob is available in nine finishes: Brushed Bronze (BB), Flat Black (BLK), Brushed Satin Nickel (BSN), Oil Rubbed Bronze (ORB), Patina Rouge (PAR), Polished Chrome (PC), Polished Nickel (PN), Pewter Antique (PTA), and Tuscan Bronze (TB).

The Dakota Cup Pull

This 2 9/16″ cup pull adds a punch of style. The Dakota Cup Pull is the perfect shape and size for hands to grab and open drawers. The oval shaped cup pull includes faux screw marks for a touch of authenticity.

The Dakota Cup Pull is available in seven finishes: Brushed Satin Nickel (BSN), Oil Rubbed Bronze (ORB), Patina Rouge (PAR), Polished Chrome (PC), Polished Nickel (PN), Pewter Antique (PTA), and Tuscan Bronze (TB).

Around the world with the Passport Collection: Great Wall

The Great Wall of China’s 5500-miles of ambling towers, steps and gateways traverse jagged mountains, vast deserts and rolling grasslands. Each individual brick or stone, placed by human hands, has acted together to create a barrier against invading armies over the centuries.

What does this have to do with cabinet hardware? It is the geometric shapes of the Great Wall, contrasting with the panoramic views of the Chinese countryside, that are the inspiration for the Great Wall Series of the Top Knobs Passport Collection.
