Our designer picked these out for our full kitchen remodel. I was a little worried that they might not fit with the vintage look we were going with, and that they might "take over," but they look great! I love the way they feel - very substantial but not big. The design in the center goes great with our stacked stone backsplash, and the color is fantastic with our cabinets: some are distressed black over maple and some are clear maple. They are definitely pointy - you wouldn't want to clunk your head on them. We used the pulls on the bigger drawers. They were more expensive than we were planning on, but they really look fantastic.
