Beautiful and versatile, wood is a natural element with personality. Wood is one of the most commonly used natural materials for home décor, and perhaps their greatest attribute is the fact that dents, scratches, irregularities and knot holes only add to its charm.
Wood types commonly used in homes are oak, pine, mahogany, teak and walnut. It’s great for kitchen knobs and cupboard handles that either blend in or make a statement.

Timeless and elegant, marble brings an air of opulence and luxury upon any room. At one time it was just reserved for kings, but now anyone can enjoy it as part of their interior style. Marble is prized for its sleek, cool surface, intriguing veining and colours, and has been most famously used to sculpt Venus de Milo, the Taj Mahal and the Washington Monument.
The Grey Solid Square Marble Knob expresses marble’s natural intricacy in grey stone. It a simple yet stunning piece. No two of these drawer knobs are alike, so yours will be a one-of-a-kind treasure.
Soft and smooth or weathered and textured, for a flowing, natural look, natural fibres can be a fantastic feature to lift even the smallest spaces.
Cotton is the strongest and most widely used natural fibre. Flexible in purpose and style, it can be used in drapery, upholstery, bedspreads, tablecloths and more. Jute (or burlap) is second only to cotton in production and use. Its neutral hue complements any furnishings or paint schemes, often used in carpets, drapes and bedding.
The rustic Jute Knob has a unique crosshatched design that looks rugged and weathered but feels soft and smooth. Like a true element of nature, the knob has minor imperfections that impart uniqueness and character.
