what do you think?

I have one stand out piece that I can't bring myself to get rid of from IKEA ( i was slowly ridding myself of the ikea junk). I really like the lines of this bjursta sideboard that I use as my media center -but the knobs are really boring. I went to anthropology and as a tester bought 3 of these square glass pulls - do you like them? do they go? Any opinions would help! I'm thinking if i keep them I have to replace the lower 3 knobs as well ( anthropology only had 3 of these, ugh ). Sorry for the poor picture, it's not on their website!
UPDATE: I've decided to return these pulls -the search continues!

I do like those knobs, but I think a round knob in a glass would look more in keeping with the chest.
I also would love just a blackened knob. The piece is so simple that it does not need anything too decorative. It has sort of an Asian influence so perhaps something with a chinese flair? Show us the final knob!

Thanks PVE - i think you're right. It needs a round knob -they have a similar glass one that is round I may try. The original ones were very simple and I wanted something a little more decorative.

MIKE says : I agree with pve ...I was thinking something with an Asian influence even b4 reading pve's comment ..and I also agree round is better if you go with the glass but I don't think they really suit anyway ..better to be understated .. :))

I thought something in bronze might be better, or those pulls that are made from natural crystals.

ok, about a year ago Style Court posted these fabulous pulls - very KWID but they would look so cool. Brass. go to her site and look up knobs or kwid. last year. let me know if you can't find them becuase I probably can.
