For those who are unsure a valet box is a Jewellery Box for a man. American Black Walnut always seems to be a favourite with many gents as it has a deep brown and masculine look to it without being too subdued.
This box is in American Black Walnut and has a Kingwood banding just in from the edge. The reddish brown banding complements the chocolatey brown of the box quite well. And the lining is in a really nice dark peacock green.
It comes with a compartmentalised tray and sufficient room underneath to hold wallets or any other large and flat objects.
This would suit any gentleman looking for an understated yet stylish contemporary box.
The Monochrome Collection is a new series of boxes which I am designing to reflect my interest in all shades of grey. Each box will have a grey dyed veneer as its principle colour and contrasting detail in white and/or black. I’m guessing bold figures will help with lighter shades but I will have to experiment with the darker hues to see what’s possible. The linings will be in a muted suede blues, greys or blacks.
Initially, I will be presenting a small watch box in light grey dyed Sycamore with white and black inlay and edges.
The Gentleman’s Grooming show was a hectic weekend and came with a steep learning curve. Learnt lots especially when it comes to setting up our stand and the cost of parking in Central London (£50 per day). There were many potentials clients and some interesting connections from the weekend. Looking forward to the next exhibition not sure where but maybe somewhere exotic…
