Sometimes changing the smallest details can make the biggest difference. If you have an outdated piece of furniture or even a whole kitchen, the easiest way of changing ming to bling is by simply changing the fittings and this particular doorknob radiates a demure opulence that instantly updates a tired scheme into sophisticated drama. Its brilliance lies in the imperfection. Cast in a mould, it is then fired several times to achieve the sumptuously, rich golden rim and crackle-glaze antiqued finish. It is a delicate tarnished beauty that at any time during the process could explode in the kiln and the work would have to start all over again.
