drawer latches?

I really like the way the godmorgon looks without any visible hardware. Did you use some kind of push latches for the drawers and doors? If so, which, please?

The cabinets are from Ikea and they have a special latch that releases when you gently push the cabinet in. When you close them, they recatch.

Thanks very much for your response, but I'm confused. They look like Godmorgon cabinets, which don't come with any latches, but a long ugly pull (in the white finish). When I asked in our local ikea about using something like the UTRUSTA push latches (the ones for the Besta series), the ikean said no, it wouldn't work because the Godmorgon drawers are too heavy. So my question is just what the latches are.

I talked to my Ikea rep here in Austin and she said that they used the Besta latches. She says that typically they are used in the living room area of the store for bookcases, etc (and that the departments don't always like to play nice together) and that they may not be covered under the warranty, but it can be done. She, also, said that if they believe the drawers may be too heavy, they can always use more. Hope that helps.
