Bespoke details… colour matching.

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 which are on the wooden screw thread, it can be made of 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 made of beech and given an almost opaque brown finish to match existing furniture.

Colour matching is charged as a bespoke detail but the price change is purely down to the extra labour and material costs.
