Create your own House Under the Hill
Home Hardware inspired by The Hobbit
In honor of The Hobbit recently hitting theaters, we thought it would be fun to show off some of our hobbit-esque products that look like they’ve come straight from the movie set. Sure, we have a wide variety of styles in our collection but these ones are too precious to pass up.
Brass Shelf Brackets:
From castles to caves, the entire set of The Hobbit is detailed with ornate brass trim. While this poster is just a taste of the general style, it’s proof that our brass shelf brackets would feel right at home within the movie series.
Lord Elrond’s Broach:
Though the Hobbits live an understated lifestyle, the Elves definitely have an eye for the elaborate. Take Lord Elrond’s broach for example, see any resemblance with his broach and our Victorian style bail pull?
The most iconic piece of the Hobbit household is the signature circle door. While we don’t necessarily carry these in stock (sorry), take a look at the ornate lock and key system on the right – that, we do.IMG SOURCE: http://www.herr-der-ringe-film.de/v3/media/galerie/hobbit001/hobbit_11/bilbo-tuer1.jpgFind this Rim Lock on our site
Thorin’s Key to Erebor:
Modern day keys are a dime-a-dozen but Thorin’s key to Erebor, the underground kingdom of his ancestors, certainly stands out in a crowd. It’s a bit more angular than our skeleton key, but we’re thinking Peter Jackson is saving this design for the finale.IMG SOURCE: http://www.thelandofshadow.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/12/ThorinsKey.jpgFind this Skeleton Key on our site
Smaug’s Treasure Coins:
When you look at the etchings on the coins from Smaug’s treasure, there’s definitely a similarity with our hand-finished pull handles. Sure, one is circular and one is rectangular, but both look to be engraved by an ancient culture of Middle Earth.IMG SOURCE: http://www.wetanz.com/assets/Uploads/HobbitDOSCoin1b4.jpgFind this Drawer Pull on our site
Back at the Shire, Bilbo has created a warm little Hobbit house for himself and one of the flagship fixtures within his foyer is this classic chandelier. As you can see, it looks like he got it directly from our collection.IMG SOURCE: http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-Y66ojkMcTSc/ToEqP_HW2PI/AAAAAAAAAo0/DTOVCxdhLOg/s1600/John_Howe–A_Hobbit%2527s_Dwelling.jpgFind this Chandelier on our site
Just like our hardware, The Hobbit movie series has no shortage of detail. Take these cast costumes and our rosette and ball tip hinge below for example; everywhere you look, there are intricate pattern inlays.IMG SOURCE: http://movies.inquirer.net/files/2012/11/TheHobbit_Kili_Fili.jpgFind this Rosette on our site; Find this Hinge on our site
Like we said, everywhere you look … handcrafted patterns, patterns, patterns.
