Top Knobs Names Contest Winners

BRANCHBURG, NJ — Top Knobs, the Branchburg, NJ-based manufacturer of decorative kitchen and bath hardware, has named the five winners of its inaugural Design Board Contest.

Entrants, including kitchen and bath designers, architects and related trade professionals, were invited to submit Top Knobs projects for a chance to win up to $5,000. Winners were selected by a panel of judges led by Top Knobs President Warren Ramsland.

“The Design Board Contest has provided our supporters with a platform and community to celebrate, share and express their extraordinary designs,” Ramsland said. “We’re filled with gratitude from the number of responses we received in our first Design Board Contest. To see the unique designs in which Top Knobs has been a part of has truly been an honor.”

Named as winners were:

Grand Prize: Dave McFadden, PB Kitchen Design, Geneva, IL

McFadden used the flat-sided pulls from Top Knobs’ Aspen II Collection in Brushed Satin Nickel in a design that focused on creating a kitchen fit for entertaining while maintaining the industrial aesthetic of the rest of the house.

Second Place: Craig Couture, Cypress Design Co., East Providence, RI

Couture remodeled a 1940s Rhode Island home with the goal of keeping the home’s existing character while creating a functional modern space. In the kitchen, Couture used knobs and pulls from Top Knobs’ Devon Collection in Honey Bronze.

Third Place: Katie Borchardt, Jean Stoffer Design, Chicago, IL

Borchardt was tasked with creating a custom kitchen that was both elegant and functional for her client. She used the rounded pulls, round knobs and oval knob backplate from Top Knobs’ Aspen Collection in a light bronze finish to harmonize the kitchen’s two-toned cabinet design.

Honorable Mention: Ariana Lovato, Honeycomb Home Design,
Arroyo Grande, CA

Lovato designed the home of her client’s dreams after a fire destroyed their previous home. With a modern farmhouse aesthetic in mind, Lovato opted for Ascendra knobs and pulls from Top Knobs’ Transcend Collection in flat black to help bring a rustic design scheme into the kitchen.

Honorable Mention: Meadowcreek Builders, Inc., Waukesha, WI

The team at Meadowcreek Builders transformed a dark and dated kitchen complete with an adjoining dining area into a bright and spacious retreat. They used Top Knobs’ Somerset Weston Pulls and London Knobs in Old English Copper to add contrast and texture to the space.
