Grovemade’s new entryway collection brings handcrafted charm to your home

We first introduced you to Grovemade back in the fall of 2014 when we took a look at its beautiful handmade desk collection. Since then, they’ve introduced new Apple-centric accessories and continued to expand into different product categories. Just recently, Grovemade released the new Entryway Collection that takes its classic styling and brings it to the walls of your home.

There are four different products in this collection. In classic Grovemade fashion, each is available in a walnut or maple finish. There is a mirror ($119) trimmed in hand-sanded and polished wood, as well as a matching catch-all ($129) that is padded with felt to provide a soft landing spot for your keys, wallet or device. Additionally, Grovemade has crafted a wall planter ($99) and coat hooks ($39) that use similar design cues. Full gallery below.

The entire collection is available for purchase today directly from Grovemade.

We first detailed the story behind Tucker and Bloom’s East to West Messenger Bag back in November of last year. Since then, the father and son team has continued to build out their brand with new stylings and updates to some older classics.
