Top 20 Hardware Resources from Design Sponge

I'm going to visit every site on the list. eBay is a little bit strange to me.

Visit Design*Sponge to Check it out. (Picture from Design*Sponge)

  • Anthropologie: Anthropologie is my first and last stop for hardware. They always have affordable decorative hardware in a wide range of styles.
  • Bauerware: Bauerware has a great collection of funky knobs and pulls.
  • eBay: It goes without saying that eBay is an excellent source for just about anything. I love their vintage sellers for truly unique door plates and pulls. Keep on eye on the sellers with good ratings. My favorites are Penn AntiqueUneedone20four7, The World TravelersSixtytwoolds and Milford Antiques
  • Etsy: The same goes for Etsy as with eBay. Their sellers offer great vintage hardware finds at reasonable prices. (Sometimes eBay can be a serious collector’s battle and I find Etsy to be more of a casual collector’s home base). My favorite sellers for hardware are Violette SlippersVintage WorksCool VintageRiRi Creations and Monkeyshines.
  • House of Antique Hardware: If you’re craving something that feels antique, House of Antique Hardware has a great selection of reproduction hardware.
  • Liz’s Antique Hardware: If I lived in Los Angeles I would be in this shop everyday. They have an amazing collection of vintage and antique hardware.
  • One Stop Modern: If you like clean, minimal and modern, this collection of hardware is for you.
  • Rustica Hardware: This shop has an easy-to-use website that’s full of nice reproduction, modern and rustic hardware styles.
  • MyKnobs.com: This website has a huge collection of knobs, pulls, door hardware and everything in between. I love their twig- and branch-style pulls.
  • CDH: Contemporary Door Hardware has a nice selection of modern hardware, from door knobs and pulls to doorbells and hinges.
  • Urban Archeology: I love Urban Archeology’s collection of metal pulls.
  • Dayoris: This clean, modern line would be at home in a chic city apartment or a modern home.
  • Robin’s Antiques: This site is a little awkward to navigate but their antique selection is amazing. If you’re looking for something unique and really special, this is a great place to start. Just come with a little patience — there aren’t a lot of image previews, just links. (They carry furniture and home hardware.)
  • Build It Green: This NYC salvage shop is a must-visit if you’re in NYC. Obviously your own local salvage yards will be a great option, but if you’re in town, they have an amazing collection of hardware. (If you’re in NYC, check out Moon River Chattel for great vintage-style hardware, too.)
  • Olde Good Things: This NYC institution is an amazing place to shop for real show-stopper hardware. They recently added an online shop for those outside the city. If you’re looking for something really striking, they’ve got you covered.
  • Colonialworks: I love this shop for their barn-style hardware.
  • Overstock: Overstock is a great place for discount hardware in all styles.
  • Rejuvenation: Their reproduction doorplates are some of my favorites.
  • Eugenia Antique Hardware: Their genuine antique hardware is phenomenal. Their one-of-a-kind options are pricey, but man, they are NICE.
  • Barn Door Hardware: If you’ve ever wanted to install a sliding door in your home, Barn Door Hardware has a nice selection of rolling hardware options, ranging from modern to more rustic.
  • Willow & Stone: This UK shop really packs a punch. They have an amazing selection of knobs, hooks and hardware accessories.
