Fratelli Reguitti: Sometimes Major Changes Are Just Small Tweaks!
You might have seen this little teaser from the weekend…
This piece is not major in terms of its size or even addition to the actual decor, but it is a major piece when it comes down to function and feelin’ the love!
It is designed for, and destined to take care of scenarios like this… gotta love those cords!
Anyone else out there appreciate? No, honey, I’m not throwing you under the bus! 😉
You see, I am partly responsible…
A few years back in a moment of empathetic male camaraderie, my Dad handed over his clothing valet to hubs. But somehow it ended up becoming a place to hang my grandmother’s quilt, and well, a DIY project for me! Hehem…
So lately I’ve sort of been keeping my eyes open for a replacement valet while on my treasure hunting rounds, and finally last week this 1950s Fratelli Regiutti option appeared!
Fratelli Regiutti, an Italian designer behind some well known 1950s furniture pieces including this gentleman’s valet, and variations of it. Don’t you love that, a gentleman’s valet? They were originally made to hang up suits. You can see from the teaser pic, how well made Regiutti valets are. All I really had to do was give this piece a wash-down, clean up the brass shoe rails, and wax the wood. This piece is not at risk of a makeover… for now.
Once in place, this is what happened to hub’s corner of the lair…
Yes, the boxes were hidden underneath! And, I promised not to ‘borrow’ this valet for any other use!
What small tweaks have you made that impact major change? Have you ever heard of Fratelli Reguitti? What do you think of his gentleman’s valet?
Thanks for stopping by!
