Like the rest of the Furniture for Bikes series by Quarterre, these designs aren’t like the typical eyesore of a bike stand. Both draw on the tones & high quality materials of Cherchbi brand’s accessories collection. The exclusive ‘Fell Grey’ color & dark wood finish for the stands have been developed to complement the hand finished leather detailing, which incorporates Cherchbi’s signature Herdwyck Tweed & vegetable-tanned English saddle leather.

The distinctive sculptural form of Hood is architecturally inspired and holds a single bike securely by its top tube. The Design is crafted from folded steel and is hand finished with leather detailing. The leather sleeve protects the bike frame while an angular cut-out can accommodate a bike lock. The Special Edition Hood is presented in the rich ‘Fell Grey’ tone and the extended leather sleeve design is made using Cherchbi’s dark brown English saddle leather and Herdwyck Tweed.

Branchline provides vertical storage for up to two bikes on two sets of adjustable arms which can adapt to a variety of frame shapes. The piece can stand independently against or be secured to the wall. For smaller spaces Branchline can also be inverted, the legs becoming a set of arms for hanging equipment. The Special Edition Branchline is made using sustainably sourced bamboo with a rich dark brown finish. The adjustable arms are hand finished in Cherchbi’s dark brown saddle leather, protecting the bike frame, and complementing the ‘Fell Grey’ tone used on the sculptural folded steel brackets.
