A Sneak Peek of our Fall Release

Here's a sneak peak at what we've been up to over at Scout Regalia headquarters as we gear up to release our first piece of indoor furniture this fall- The SR Bookcase.  We're still fine tuning the details of the piece, and most recently had a fun but challenging decision to make about the type of pulls we'll be using for the lower cabinets of the bookcase.

Cabinet pulls seem to ignite many heated debates amongst designers.  Most modern cabinet designs have some sort of sleek and minimal stainless steel pull that seems to favor thin lines over usability.  Sometimes, the pull completely disappears with a concealed magnetic push latch.

We've made a conscious decision to embrace the function and aesthetics of wood knobs for the cabinets of our bookcase.  There's something both timeless and simple about using a wood knob that seems fitting for the aesthetic and ethos of the bookcase in particular and our office as a whole.  A lot of people ask us what "Scout Regalia" means.  The short answer is that it can be translated as "humble ornament"- an homage to finding the splendor in something austere and simple.  We think the knobs are a good representation of that.
