Personalised ‘Lekman’ Shelf Storage Box

Check out our Home section where there is a brand new storage product which fits perfectly into the IKEA storage systems, like the Lekman box that they stock. Only it is wooden and of course it is personalisable with text, logo or any other graphics. A great way to smarten up the workplace, retail store or home office and show off your brand.

The perfect combination of aesthetic and practical

A great piece of feedback from Fiona at Earthmonk with some really key phrases which we think sum up what we do: “Wow, we just love our storage units. We wanted a modern twist on the rustic look of apple crates and achieved this by purchasing a set of three large four crate retail shelving unit. We had our shelving units painted in bespoke colours with our logo and other personalised wording painted on it.  They are the perfect combination of aesthetic and practical. 

The service from the team was absolutely excellent and they turned our order round on a tight schedule. We were really impressed with the professionalism, customer service and the after care service. We are delighted with our goods and will definitely return when we need to extend our collection. Thank you  FurnitureCrates.”

Press Event Crates

We get a lot of requests for crates to be used in press events and presentations, they evoke a natural, fresh and authentic feel that enhances all sorts of products. In this case its a new range of kids shampoo from Vosene. See more examples in our Events and Promotions section. The client loved them and they went down brilliantly in the presentation.
