When I first introduced the Hatstand Valets I wondered what kind of homes they would find their way into. They make a statement in any bedroom or dressing room, especially the skull option.

Not long after the skull started to sell I noticed he was becoming a regular choice for men who ordered valets for their office, lawyers and businessmen who maybe have him as a vailed threat to potential adversaries.

The velvet flock hat rest can be a little more gentle. Whether blending in with its surroundings or going for a complete contrast. On the website it’s listed black as standard but a there’s a selection of colours available as a bespoke detail.

Then there’s the globe option with a beautiful, handmade globe made by traditional British globe makers Lander and May. Something from the study in your dressing room.

Something nice to hang on your wall.

With the arrival of Valet no.9 earlier this year, I now make 4 different wall mounted valets.

Valet no.9 is my first valet with hangers which lift off the valet in normal use. Its styling is intended to blend with the look of a room, working just as well in a contemporary or traditional style of room. Continue reading

The continuing daily social whirl

The weekday social media onslaught continues. It’s very spontaneous, I don’t know from one day to the next what I’m going to post. At best I might have posts ready a day or two in advance but it’s more likely to be a last minute rush to get it ready for the lunch time deadline. Continue reading

Red Hatstand Valet

The daily social whirl of valet making.
