We all have that one piece of furniture we’ve inexplicably held onto—maybe it’s an old IKEA dresser you’ve had since college or a $20 thrift store nightstand that’s seen better days. You could toss it—or you could give it a face-lift. You don’t even have to pick up a paintbrush. Fresh hardware, like this new collection from Nest Studio, is the easiest update you can make to blah furniture.
The just-launched Stitch series, which features hand-stitched leather, and the soon-to-launch Deco line, a nod to the curves and glitz of the era, are both noteworthy additions. But our favorite has to be the Geo Colorful collection. Traditional handles are reimagined in vibrant red, blue, and green hues and funky geometric shapes inspired by Miami modernism. The bold pulls and knobs are perfect for zhuzhing up a timeworn set of drawers—or even rental kitchen cabinets. (Just hold on to the original screws so you won’t get in trouble with your landlord when you move out.)
To top it off, the colorful Geo hardware is outdoor-friendly, so you can give your patio furniture a refresh as well.
Starting at $75, Nest Studio’s new hardware is definitely an investment—but not compared to buying a whole new bureau. If you’re looking to update a sentimental family heirloom or simply elevate a flea market find, consider the splurge. After all, it’s the little things that have the biggest impact.
