Entrance Hall Furniture

December 1, 2008

Our clients presented a sketch of their idea for entrance hall furniture for their Victorian house, and this formed the starting point of our design.  They are an active family needing somewhere to store coats, hats, gloves, scarves, walking sticks and umbrellas.  They also needed space left in the entrance hall for their golf clubs.  They wanted design and manufacture only and wanted it supplied as a kit so that they could collect and fit the furniture themselves.
