British coat rack & bench

I want to show you our new coat rack and bench. These items are made by Knotted Oak, a handmade furniture business based in the West Midlands.

“Joe created Knotted Oak with the ethos of using traditional joinery methods; good quality locally and ethically sourced timber, to make beautiful furniture that will last generations.”

I found Knotted Oak through Folksy and contacted Joe about a custom bench size. Both the rack and bench are handmade in the UK from solid oak and finished with an eco friendly, natural oil.

The edges of the wood have been rounded off so there are no sharp edges.

It has a row of tasteful coat hooks.

We wanted a bench to put shoes and bags on. Otherwise they pile up at the front door and we find it difficult to get in or out (a first world problem I know)!

I’m sure you’ll agree they are beautifully made! And the best bit is they’ll get better with age.

P.S. The scarf hanging up is my Northmavine Hap.


  1. I love your coat rack and the idea of a Made in Britain series. I have just bought a peg rack from maple and green (also found on Folksy). I find you can never have enough places to hang things up!
