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.
