Beetle Mania

 

No, not the Beatlemania of the 1960's.  We are talking about the beetles that are part of the coleoptera family.  It is no secret that Martin is fascinated by these creatures and many door and cabinet knobs, as well as bronze sculptures in the collection have been inspired by the beauty he finds in these bugs.

A few years ago we actually had a pair of Hercules beetles as pets that we affectionately called Natasha and Boris.  While they are no longer with us, they did inspire Martin to create this amazing bronze sculpture.

For those of you who do not want to have beetles as pets or the bronze sculpture does not fit into your interior design plan, smaller in scale beetle door knobs, door handles and cabinet pulls can still make a design statement.  This scarab door or drawer pull is beautifully detailed and available in a small and large size to accomodate your design needs.

You can see how designer Tracy Abrams utilized the scarab pull on the cabinet doors of this Washington state home's wet bar.  Combined with door handles and knobs from our Willow collection, it is both striking and unique.
