Buying Cabinet Hardware At A Clothing Store...

sounds like a dumb idea when you think about it.  Well, I decided to learn the hard way.  Remember these that I wanted to buy for the kitchen cabinet drawers?  I bought them.  When installed, all 8 of them broke :(

The good thing is that I regained my faith in an otherwise diminishing customer service industry.  Anthropologie seriously rocks when it comes to hassle-free, no nonsense returns.  They didn't bother having me send back the broken pieces and immediately credited my account.  The packing slip also contains a free return slip.  And, the people you talk to on the phone are super nice and accommodating.  I will definitely be purchasing things from them in the future. I just wish it could be their fabulous (and expensive) furniture!

We had the holes drilled, so we were stuck with a 2 holed handle.  Luckily, I like the old standard cup pull accompanied with a simple knob :

House of Knobs Fashionable Finishes Bright Chrome Traditional Cup Pull... House of Knobs Fashionable Finishes Bright Chrome 1 1/4" Knob - ( HOK-22165 )

Hopefully we'll receive them this week.  It is REALLY hard to open drawers without a handle!

  1. I have to say I'm a little more of an oil rubbed bronze cabinet hardware fan, myself. But you're right, the cup pull is pretty standard, but perfect just the way it is.
