Experimenting with Shapes: Top Knobs Guide to Designing with Geometrics

Geometric shapes are resurfacing once again as a top trend in interior design. From tessellating patterns to dimensional details, abstract elements are a great way to freshen up a space with modern flair.

While the whimsical layers of multilateral decor can often be hypnotic and add huge impact to a room, coordinating one-of-a-kind furnishings can often be overwhelming. Take a subtle approach to this funky trend and find your perfect shape with decorative hardware from Top Knobs.

With unique pieces enhanced by sharp angles and curved lines and exaggerated silhouettes, Top Knobs offers distinctly designed offerings that help inspire thoughtfully designed interiors full of balance and harmony.

Round

Circular fixtures help create warm and inviting settings and complement a range of interior styles. The smooth curves of sphere-shaped pieces like our Kinney knob soften the boxy look of cabinetry while the bowed edges of the Oval Long Slot pull add a posh touch.

Squared

Invite symmetry to kitchens and bathrooms with the sleek, even lines of square-shaped hardware. The uniformity of the knobs and pulls in our Channing Series allows designers and homeowners to play with the geometry of a space while adding a refined sense of style to interiors.

As one of the most common shapes found in the home, rectangular accessories are extremely versatile and evoke a sense of comfort. Our Quilted pull, ups the ante of this familiar shape with its diamond weave surface while the thick body of our Modern Metro pull creates a harmonious layering effect when placed parallel against cabinet drawers and doors. 

Hexagonal

Thanks to its connection with nature, six-sided decorative elements play a vital role in creating peaceful, zen-like environments. When placed upon cabinetry our Spectrum knobs or Emerald pulls instantly light up a room with positive energy.

Asymmetrical

Craft designs full of interest and wonder with oblique decorative ornaments that keep the eye moving. The zigzagging features of knobs and pulls in our Sanctuary and Sanctuary II collections elevate simple cabinetry and shelving into stunning conversation pieces.

A Mid-West Kitchen Gets an Industrial Update with Top Knobs

Before finding success as an award-winning kitchen designer, Dave McFadden had a long and accomplished career as a mechanical engineer, leading design teams for several electronic manufacturing companies. After changing course to follow his creative passions, McFadden started his own firm, PB Kitchen Design, lending his architectural expertise to clients longing for one-of-a-kind interiors.

Interior Designer Dave McFadden

Based in a small Chicago suburb, McFadden’s artistic style draws upon the surrounding city’s contemporary architecture and blends with the traditions of mid-west homes. It is with this unique approach that he received top honors for an industrial kitchen renovation in Top Knobs inaugural “Design Board Contest”.

With the objective of presenting a designated kitchen space where the homeowners had ample room for meal prepping and entertaining, McFadden and the team at Kubala Washatko Architects based all of their design decisions on creating a space that complemented the home’s existing modern appearance.

“The key to this project was to create a kitchen fitting of a residence with strong industrial aesthetics that works equally well for quick family meals or large gatherings,” said McFadden. “Warm, organic and sturdy materials were specified to enrich the integrity of the design.”

Although the completed space is nothing short of spectacular, McFadden faced a few challenges throughout the design process. The expansive windows above the sink and large hood above the range meant there was limited space for upper cabinets. With a need for additional storage, he was strategic about lower cabinet placement and utilized the expansive island to include 42” cabinets. While the unusually high ceilings could not support optimal lighting, suspended structural beams were installed to create an impressive light fixture.

With the foundation of the kitchen complete, Dave McFadden combined transitional elements and luxurious finishes, to complete the look of this avant-garde kitchen. The floors are composed of polished concrete, stone and wood cladding were used on the walls and Top Knobs Flat Sided pulls in Silicon Bronze Light adorn the cabinets.
