How to: Smart Storage

21 November 2019

Rethinking storage solutions; discover conversation-starting furniture that you can’t do without. Introducing function, by Tom Raffield.

As autumn draws to an end and the first signs of winter begin to show outside we find ourselves updating our interiors to accommodate and suit the changing seasons. Tom Raffield provides unique storage solutions that don’t scrimp on style. From our practical Taffrail, to our multi-functional Log Loop, we’ve got you and your interior covered for the winter months ahead.

Twill Coat Stand

Weaving together form and function, the Twill Coat Stand threads together steam bent lengths of oak creating an intuitive place for hanging coats, towels or accessories. Three pieces of timber, joined together by halos of steam bent wood, rise upwards and end with a flourish and a twist.

Unimposing, quietly confident, our Twill Coat Stand can be placed in any hallway or bedroom to create the perfect marriage of purpose and panache.

Log Loop

Two dynamic hoops of steam bent oak join together in a marriage of form and function. The Log Loop celebrates our signature curved aesthetic and honours our favourite natural material.

Perfect for storing logs and firewood, as well as a range of other things, such as wine, towels or blankets, our Log Loop suits a range of spaces. From the living room to the bathroom or kitchen, there's a use for this steam bent accessory everywhere you look.

Coat Loop

A surprising twist, a signature flourish. Our Coat Loop offers a simple, yet audaciously stylish solution to storage. Crafted from a single piece of sustainably sourced oak, the Coat Loop is expertly steam bent by our skilled team in our workshop in Cornwall. Don’t just hang your coat…spoil it.

Especially suited to hallways and porches, our Coat Loop design adds a flourish to the most basic of furniture fittings

The Taffrail is our answer to fixed storage in your home - a stylish and flexible place to hang your wares, without compromising on aesthetics. Taking inspiration from a traditionally ornate ship stern, the Taffrail is a celebration of minimalist, sleek design.

Perfect for a bedroom or bathroom, the Taffrail is light and easy to move round your home wherever it is called upon. The Taffrail also looks great in a kitchen setting (see the Taffrail's feature in this Devol kitchen) and makes an interesting alternative to a standard towel rail.
