Red, white and blue are easily recognized as the symbolic colors of our county, most visibly on our American flag. But did you know that each of those colors has special meaning? The color red represents hardiness and valor, white symbolizes purity, and blue indicates vigilance, perseverance and justice. In honor of Flag Day on June 14, we have pulled a red, white and blue sampling of our products for your traditional decorating styles.

First we present a ruby red glass inverted Thistle pattern serving platter measuring 12 inches in diameter, resting on a round pedestal approximately 1 1/2 inches above table surface. This ruby serving piece would enhance your Fourth of July table scape, but is also a year round treasure for serving at Christmas or Valentine’s Day.

For your restoration or traditional home style needs, we offer a white porcelain dummy door knob finished in brushed nickel Victorian plate. Single dummy glass door knobs consist of a knob on one side of the door. Double dummy styles consist of a knob on both sides of the door. As dummy knobs, these do not turn or operate a latch mechanism. This doorknob set is available in four additional finishes.

Lastly, our cobalt blue glass cabinet knobs are a beauty to behold. These sturdy knobs are individually made from the finest silica glass by professional glassworkers and are available in 2 sizes: 1 ½ inch diameter or 1 ¼ inch diameter.

A New Rainbow of Color This Spring – Redecorating with Glass

with one comment

Ruby Red Glass Cabinet Knob


Add a little life to your cupboards and drawers this spring with new glass knobs and pulls. Transform your kitchen from bland to beautiful by replacing that old and worn hardware with wonderful replacements in glass and crystal. The possibilities are limitless this year with a wide spectrum of glass shapes and colors available for the home (or office). Try adding something unique to your home this year during your spring cleaning and redecorating projects!

Nothing says dull like scratched and worn knobs and pulls on any piece of furniture. The small details make the biggest impact sometimes and this is especially true when it comes to hardware. Knobs and pulls are not only a focal point of design; they are also one of the most used items in the home. Think of how many times you open the drawers and cabinets in your bathroom, kitchen and bedroom.

Art Deco Glass Cabinet Knob

Try adding a little pizzazz to your cupboards with exciting ruby red knobs or introduce a little color into the bathroom with beautiful emerald green knobs. Create a theme in a nursery with baby pink or blue pulls for the dresser. The opportunities to make your home reflect your unique personality are just waiting to be used. Glass comes in a variety of shapes from the traditional hexagon to ornate swirl glass knobs. Fitting well in homes that range from classic Victorian themes to contemporary Manhattan apartments – glass is quickly becoming one of the most stylish ways to update the home.

Take your new decorating style one step further by adding wonderful crystal doorknob sets throughout the home. This can quickly create a uniformed look throughout the entire home. Glass stands out against wood (or metal) doors and offers an extra touch of elegance. Try updating your curtain tie backs with exotic pressed glass patterns to bring the look of glass even further into the room.

Amethyst Glass and Brass Coat Hooks

Although glass can break more easily than other materials (such as brass, iron, steel, etc.) it is extremely durable and does not show signs of wear and tear as easily over time. When properly installed, glass knobs and pulls will work as efficiently as standard metal knobs. LookInTheAttic & Company offers a great selection of glass hardware ranging from cabinet knobs to robe hooks. Try something new this year and make your house the beautiful home of your dreams.
