Get a handle on it

Once upon a time it used to be hard to find handles and knobs in any colour other than chrome. Nowadays we’re spoilt for choice. Here’s five Aussie brands with handles and knobs to knock your socks off.


1 LO & CO

Looking for handles and knobs in black, brass or copper? You’re in luck, Lo & Co have a drop-dead gorgeous array to choose from. Their handles, knobs, and pulls are made for contemporary spaces. I think the next home I buy and renovate, will need some of these handles, the only tricky part will be deciding on a style – there are so many to love – I’ve showcased a few of my favourite styles from their range here.

2 MADE MEASURE

Made Measure have a huge range of metal and leather wrapped cabinet handles, metal and leather recessed pulls, leather tabs, flat handles and hoops, and even entry door handles and coat hooks. All of their leather goods are designed, and handcrafted in their inner-city Melbourne studio. They even offer bespoke services if you can’t find what you’re looking for! If you’re looking to create a high-end look in your kitchen, bathroom, or any custom cabinetry throughout the home for that matter, Made Measure should be your first port of call.


3 KETHY

Kethy have a massive selection of handles and knobs – and in almost every colour/finish/style you could imagine. Choose from stainless steel, black, timber, brass and copper. Their brass hardware are my personal favourites though. You can see their Cornet handle pictured above in Little Willow designed by Julia and Sasha. More of their beautiful range pictured below…

4 AUHAUS

You’ve probably heard of Auhaus and know them for their beautiful architecture and interior design – but did you know they also have their own range of handles and knobs too? When I stumbled across their online shop of goodies, I was blown away! It might be a small range, but it’s certainly quality over quantity here, and now I’m lusting over those brass envelope handles pictured above. With just copper and brass finishes to choose from, it might restrict some shoppers – but I’m Team Brass all the way – so there’s plenty here to satisfy me.

If you’re looking for a softer touch in the kitchen or bathroom – have you considered leather or suede handles or pull tabs? Sunshine-Coast brand H&G Designs produce a beautiful range that will give your cabinetry a bespoke look. Not only that, their leather strap shelves (seen pictured above) and picture ledges (pictured below - used as a recipe book holder) are clever storage solutions for the kitchen (or any room really).
