I've been waiting forever for Hobby Lobby to get a new round of hardware in (they had to sooner or later). It's finally here, and the selection is even greater than before!
I snapped a few of the newer styles to share with you. Many are knockoffs of pricier versions from other stores, but much more easy on the budget. Although you can't really tell the scale in these photos, I also noticed a trend toward more oversized, chunkier knobs.
Lots of new metallic and mother of pearl finishes-
There are so many styles leaning towards natural looking materials and pretty inlaid designs. I know they have an agate slice style knob now, also, but I haven't seen that one yet at my local store. I've got an eye out for it!
There is a multitude of selections in almost every color, and even lots of multi-colored choices. These animal knobs are so good, especially for a kids room, and easy enough to spray paint if the color isn't quite right. There are several new glass options as well, I really like this abstract spherical shaped one.
The beauty doesn't come across in the photo, but these handles are really nice, and super heavy. It has pretty flecks in it and is almost like a marble type material (maybe it IS marble?).
These glass backplates are fantastic. You can see they're bigger than my hand, and I think they would be so, so pretty on just the right piece.
When we refreshed our kitchen over a year ago, I knew the knobs I put on the top cabinets wouldn't stay, but I used them until I found something I liked better. They're the glass tube and brass ones from the first photo above and I love the style, but I knew all along they didn't show up enough on the white, and honestly they aren't very good for high-use areas. They have a tendency to come apart. ;)
So, I was THRILLED when HL got the Anthro knock off mother of pearl knobs. I've replaced all of the top knobs in my kitchen with them and am loving the change. (Here's a link to the Anthropologie knobs, they're $9 higher per knob than HL's sale price.)
Just a reminder that the hardware is usually 50% off every other week, so wait for the sale. Also, if you see a knob you like in the store but they don't enough of what you need, they take orders at the front register for any quantity. And, if you're not fortunate enough to have a local store, many knobs and pulls are on their website, and I believe are 1/2 off whenever the sale is on in store.
