We were so excited to be asked to review a unique piece of furniture for Destabled. They have some really lovely bits and Kirsty who runs the business makes them all by hand.
Kirsty makes the shelves and units from wood and crochet. I have never seen an item like this which incorporates crochet and I must say it’s such a unique and special touch I really love it. All of her pieces have a crochet design in them.
Kirsty makes the whole process so personalised , she firstly asked me where I wanted the piece and what room would be best. I told her that we needed some kind of shelf and coat storage in the hallway. I was asked to send photos from all angles of the hallway and told that Kirsty would come back to me when she had thought up a design.
We have a beautiful hallway it’s so bright and spacious and the floor tiles are just amazing. They have a diamond design with a deep orange colour running through them.
When Kirsty got back to me she said she wanted to bring out the orange and the diamonds with the piece that she was making. That’s about all she told me and said how long it would take I was so excited to see what she came up with.
Kirsty sent me updates and photos along the way with progress which was fab.I didn’t see the actual finished product until it arrived which was so nice as I got such a special surprise.
Kirsty made us a floating shelf with three diamond hooks to hang below the shelf. The diamond hooks are amazing as they match and really bring out the diamonds in out floor tiles. Kirsty has also used a nice vibrant orange colour like the one in out tiles and it just looks incredible.
We then have the unique crochet pattern worked in to the shelf in orange which is so pretty and I love the way the light shines through it in the hallway.
The shelf is so well made and of such high quality. All of the curves are shaped so perfectly and are just divine. I love the curved shape it has. The hooks are also very well made and can hold a few coats a hook which is great for storage.
When spring comes I’m going to get some straw baskets and decorative eggs and hang them from the hooks. In the summer when we have put the winter coats away I’m going to swap them for some wire hanging plant baskets and use it that way to incorporate the season change.
The shelf is so versatile , at the moment I have the picture and plants on it but you could have anything from books to ornaments. You can also see in the pictures we have some Christmas bits for the shelf these can be changed each season. It makes the perfect shelfie.
All in all we are so thrilled with the shelf and can honesty find no faults with it at all , we will be calling on Kirsty to design some other bits for us. She is so professional and approachable and really puts her heart and soul in to each piece and will work with you to design something really
The shelf and hooks including postage is £68 and can be made in any colour. Kirsty also gives a five year guarantee which is amazing for such a special handmade item.
