Over the last few months we’ve made a few bespoke Gentleman’s Retainer valets which particularly featured colour matching. Because the retainer doesn’t involve any moving parts like the valets with the wooden screw thread. It can be available in a wider range of timbers and finishes.
The photos show mahogany retainers with very different finishes. A high gloss, reddish brown lacquer and an almost matt finish valet made to match some existing teak furniture. The third valet was in beech and given an opaque brown finish to match existing furniture.
Colour matching is a bespoke detail but the price change is purely down to extra labour and material costs.
