Pembridge Back Plates
Hinge plates are a timeless treasure that has made a booming comeback. The way it works is that you have to install them in the face of the cabinet door and right across from the cabinet door. The effect will be something that is a decorative and magical - turning storage into a fairy tale. It is an accent that is going to take your cabinets to that next level.
The Florid Leaves Hinge Plates have an amazing look and feel to them. The pattern is very intricate while still keeping with a light feel by having the open negative space between the branches. This particular set of hinge plates is very versatile and could be worked into many designs. It is a great hardware accessory to pair with any floral or grape pulls or knobs, the jeweled knobs and pulls, the Celtic Shield knobs and pulls, as well as the Saddleworth knobs or pulls.
The next set of hinge plates is Dragonfly hinge plates. When actually put on, they add a very strong detail to the cabinetry. The design itself has very strong solid lines and shapes. The dragonfly has a definite shape to it because it doesn't blend into the background, but stands out on its own. It would be an excellent addition for cabinets from antique style to a modern style. It would complement any pulls and knobs that have a bold and intricate pattern. A great choice is the Monarch Knob, the Delaney's Rose Knob, and the Prairie Tulip Knob in Antique Copper.
The Cicada hinge plates look like a more delicate and whimsical version of the Dragonfly hinge plates. It would create a very pulled-together look if you should use the Cicada hinge plates along with knobs and pulls that have more graceful lines that appear to be thinner. The Renaissance pull or knob reflects the delicate lines in the hinge plate. Other delicate-looking knobs and pulls that would look great along with the Cicada hinge plates are the Oak Leaf pulls and knobs. The delicate look of the whimsical scrolls in the Cicada hinge plates will offset the smooth crinkled waves on the Oak Leaf pull or knob.

While being hinge plates, you could also use them as independent decorative elements. You could put them anywhere you like. An excellent and very creative place to put them is on the corners of the doors in an angular manner - for example, all of the tails of the Dragonfly hinge plate facing into the center. You could also think of embellishing every other drawer with the hinge plate.
The last piece to fill in the breath-taking collection is the key rim - the Sentinel Key Escutcheon. It is a perfect addition to any cabinetry with any knobs or pulls. Using it on any cabinet will bring a feel that will bring some feeling of history to it. It is a classic piece that has been used on many pieces of furniture for many centuries since the Greek culture. It could be used as an accent around any cabinet lock or a drawer lock.
If you look over this collection of hardware' and do not think that it is particularly your style, think about it again because it just might be.
