Why You'll Love This Valet Stand
Designed by Neri & Hu for Poltrona Frau, the Ren Valet Stand is part of a furniture accessory collection designed to complete the look of the living space with a discrete and comfortable approach.
This piece features a bottom shelf for clothes or shoes, entirely covered in saddle leather. A hanger and key tray hang from the upper cross piece, creating the elegant effect of a suspended weight balancing from the top.
The shape of the frame of this valet stand is inspired by the Chinese ideogram 'Ren', which can be seen in the elegant cross structure of the frame's side profile. Ren means 'person, human being', and like all the pieces in the Ren Collection, this stand provides a personal and private feel thanks to its versatile functions and minimalist design.
Ren is made using a mix of high quality materials, combining wood, brass and leather to achieve its practical and aesthetic design goals. The support frame and hanger of this piece are made from walnut wood with a Canaletto veneer. The key tray is in brass, with a saddle leather cover around its outside edge and bottom surface. For the leather finishes of the shelf and key tray there is an option of four colours to choose from.
