As summer turns to autumn, the nights get darker, the days get colder, and we all want our homes to feel a little cosier. Our carefully crafted collection of boot racks, fireside companion sets and log holders are the perfect way to elevate your home for winter.

Instead of leaving damp, muddy welly boots outside or dumping them in the hallway, use a decorative boot rack to tidy up your space. Storing shoes upside down is an excellent way to create air flow and always keep your boots fresh. Each of our boot racks features ornate ball finials which our blacksmiths hammer by hand to give their distinctive shape; an ideal match for our range of Hammered ironmongery. Our boot racks are available in a small size, which holds four pairs of shoes, and a larger size which holds six pairs of shoes, both offered in our Pewter and Matt Black finishes.

Fireside Companion Sets
On a cold day, there is nothing better than relaxing in your living room in the warm embrace of a crackling fire. As well as bringing a sense of elegance to your fireplace, our companion sets contain all the essentials for proper fire maintenance. Each set includes a poker, tongs, shovel and brush to ensure your hearth remains well-kept all year round.
Much like the boot racks, our companion sets are forged from a base of mild steel which makes them weighty and durable. For period properties, we recommend our Spiral companion set, which features a twisted stand with a circular base. Our Hinton tools work particularly well with this stand as their brass knuckles and Georgian handles add a regal flair to the design.
For a more contemporary design, we recommend our Arc companion set, which features a curved arm and long, sleek base. This style is complemented best by our Pewter finish which highlights the distinctive twist in the Avon tool set.

When the snow is falling, the last thing you want to do is trek outside to gather more wood for the fire. Thankfully, with our new collection of log holders you can keep a small supply of firewood within easy reach, while adding a captivating piece of craftsmanship to your home. The perfect blend of beauty and function.
Our Rectangular log holder boasts clean, parallel lines finished with the same hammered ball finials as our boot racks. Our Curved log holders have a more playful appearance with rounded edges and are available in a small and large size.
Both styles of our log holders have open sides to allow plenty of airflow to your logs which helps them stay dry and damp-free.
Using a mixture of our home accessories is a great way to elevate your home for autumn. Use our boot racks, companion sets and log holders to ensure your home is not only beautiful, but functional, and well organised.
