The birds and bees door handles

Spring has finally arrived and much of the country is enjoying warmer temperatures and beautiful spring growth.  Here in Los Angeles the Jacaranda trees are blooming, creating a lovely, but messy, purple carpet beneath them.

Also included in the arrival of spring is the arrival of the birds and the bees.  What better way to introduce these fun icons of a fresh new season than with custom door knobs and handles.  

Our Netsuke collection presents several beautifully detailed spring critter options including our bee knob:

There are several bird designs also available in our selection of bespoke hardware. The swallow pull was inspired by the returning of the swallows to nearby San Juan Capistrano every year.  We think it is the perfect accessory on this custom toy chest we created for a client.

And no discussion of the beauty of spring would be complete without the mention of a rabbit! Our rabbit door knob will add just the right touch of whimsy to a nursery, for example, or provide a light hearted touch to a commercial or hospitality installation.
