The hallway is the room’s equivalent to the words hello and goodbye. It is the hallway that welcomes you and it is the hallway that welcomes you back. The hallway is thus not only a room with functionality but also a room that can make an impression. Some people are actually calling the hallway the most important room in a home — the room where the expectations are set of what is next to come. Other people only see it as a functional passageway. At Essem Design they consider both aspects — they believe that functionality and characteristics are both equally important when it comes to the interior. Their product range consists of functional hat racks from the 1930’s and characteristic hooks from today’s prominent designers. For the environment and for the benefit of the local society, all manufacturing is located in Småland, Sweden.
