Yet another Bespoke Crate Shelving Solution

We’ve been working with the Wheat Bag Company for some time and we’re really pleased with this unique crate shelving unit that has been developed with Claire, she said: “Just a quick pic to show how I’m selling them with stock in. They all look fab.”

We are always happy to help with bespoke requests, this unit has enlarged storage space in the base, lip elements on the front of the crates and a counter top display unit on the top, all connected with our crate latches for maximum flexibility. The units get used at trade shows as well as in store and look brilliant.

Versatility, the key to success

Earthmonk have been using our retail display crates for a few years now and they keep trying new configurations depending on location and the show they are attending. We’ve been adding display elements to their set up including an extra wide crate which they use across the top of the stand, providing them with a hanging space in the middle.
“This is our third event now with our versatile set up !!! We used two four tier crates with the long box across the top. And depending on the space I have the gap in between can alter. It looks great and the feedback is always so positive about how professional we look,” said Fiona at Earthmonk.

Another Satisfied Student Union…

We seem to be very popular with universities at the moment, the University of Sussex in Brighton are the latest to order our crate retail display units for their shop. A simple and elegant solution for a small shop, the units can be moved around to provide a range of configurations and of course can be wheels out of the way for cleaning.

Paul, our customer was very satisfied and said: “Thanks for the crates they look great.

Brand new – Wooden A Board Sign…

As ever here at Furniture Crates, we love working with our customers to create new solutions, as we know that what works for one business will almost certainly have some resonance with others. And this is a case in point, Bude Bikes asked us to develop a couple of items, an A board and leaflet holder, to help them build some brand awareness in the local area. James, the proprietor, said: “Both items are fantastic, we’ve had a great response and agreed several locations for A boards and the leaflet holder has pride of place in the local pub.”
