I began producing the knobs in a space of around 2 square metres under the cellar stairs of the house we were living in at that time (it made me think of Harry Potter on more than one occasion!). I carried out the painting work on an old kitchen table in an adjoining basement room. Over the years my range of furniture knobs grew and I found balancing my work with my life as a mother of two little boys was really quite trouble-free.
My sons have outgrown me in the meantime and it’s only a question of time before they fly the nest. My furniture knobs are still my passion. Demand for them has grown amazingly over the years, so much so that, in 2017, I had to organise ‘more hands’ for the production. I place great importance on quality and high-class craftsmanship and therefore I placed my trust in a truly wonderful, family-run enterprise in the village of Seiffen – famous for its wooden toy making – in the Ore Mountain region. Today most of my furniture knobs are lovingly and meticulously handcrafted for me there. I am incredibly proud of these beautiful items that are regularly delivered to me in large parcels, and the joy and excitement I feel upon unpacking and inspecting the newly created products are still as strong as ever.
Over the years my furniture knobs have added a delightful, charming touch to so many nurseries and children’s rooms – and there are no signs of that stopping, both here in Germany and abroad. I am infinitely grateful to be able to carry out this work and make the world a tiny bit more beautiful.
