The terraces of Terrassen – Atelier Espenaer

The terraces of Terrassen

The ‘terraces’ are the distinguishing feature of this cabinet and give it its name; terrassen is Dutch for terraces. They may not be as impressive as the terraces of Fes, but are ideal for belongings that you wish to showcase.

Vintage tools

Last year we were lucky to acquire two batches of vintage tools. The first belonged to a retired woodworker who specialized in wooden barometers, the second belonged to the great-great-grandfather of a relative.
