Dear Steve

Just to let you know that the coat racks arrived safe and sound yesterday. They are beautiful (the wood and the hooks) and we are looking forward to putting them up soon in our new Victorian house we are about to move in to. It was hard to find some coat racks which were in keeping, period-wise, and also sturdy enough for all our family’s coats – so we were very pleased to have found your website (and our 2 nice new coat racks).

As anyone who’s ever made anything – from a wedding dress to an engine – will confirm, there’s no better way to ensure the result than by producing a sample first. Which is why I decided to make a prototype when commissioned to make a pair of garden stools.

Features: Concave seat with drainage holes.  Anti-wet underfoot gliders
