It’s always lovely to see a revival of traditional crafts. deVOL who are perhaps better known for their beautiful bespoke kitchens, have developed a small range of beautifully designed and crafted pieces for the home. Within the range are solid oak chopping boards, beautiful laundry maids, decorative ladders, oak and painted peg rails, a lovely cedar clothes horse and lots more. Each piece is a contemporary take on traditional designs and I love them all, but these are my favourites!
Towel Rack, £120
This towel rack offers a contemporary take on the popular Victorian towel rails, only the drying rails have been offset and a handy slatted shelf has been added.
Clothes Horse, £130
This traditionally styled clothes horse is handmade from cedar wood and offers oodles of drying space. It also folds away neatly with traditional fabric hinges. I remember my grandmother used one of these and not only was it good for drying clothes, add a simple white sheet, and it made a great tent.
Laundry Maid, £195
This is more of a contemporary take on the traditional laundry maid. It has ash slats with brushed aluminium arcs. A pulley system is used to adjust the height with jute cord adding the final touch.
Apple Picking Ladder, from £170
Absolutely perfect for utilising slim spaces, this ladder can be used for all sorts. In the kitchen it provides an ideal place to hang tea towels or even pots and pans from meat hooks. In the bathroom it would be great for drying towels.
