Meet the Family
Do you already have a locker in your life? Struggling to pick the one for you or which one to add next? We're here to tell you more about the lockers you love to love!
Meet our family of beautiful, functional storage and accessories. We're going to tell you all about them, how they became part of our gang and the best uses for them! Read on for all of the organisation inspo you could ever need.
Cast your mind back to 2018...seems like forever ago now, doesn't it? Especially after the last year! Well, 2018 was the year that Mustard truly came to life and all of our ideas were born. Becca had always had a 'thing' for lockers so when we made the decision to start a business together, lockers were the front runner. When you think of a locker, you think of the classic, retro, American school-style lockers, right? Well this is where our minds first went too, which is where the Skinny was born!
The Shorty came along when we realised we wanted to launch with more than one product, we were brainstorming ideas + the Shorty was super versatile, so it seemed like a no-brainer! Initially we launched with only the right-opening option, but we quickly realised that left-opening was essential too, because everyone wanted them as bedside tables. We launched the left-opening Shorty and they became the perfect pair.
The Baskets were launched not long after. We wanted a small accessory to pair with our lockers and they were (literally) the perfect fit! They are super on-brand with the theme of storage and organisation, and of course available in all of our colours!
Tall and Slender, our signature locker and the one that we dreamed up first! The Skinny wants to help. She'll keep your stuff neat and tidy, standing alone or paired with friends in a row. The Skinny is elegant, beautiful and practical but don't let that fool you, there is so much space inside!
Short and Sweet, our Shorty comes in right and left opening options, perfect whichever side of the bed you sleep on! The Shorty locker makes itself at home tucked neatly next to your desk, snuggled up next to your lounge or of course, sitting beside your bed.
A set of baskets for all your bits + bobs. Designed to fit inside your locker just right. The big one fits one per shelf and the two small can fit on one shelf. They also fit under the locker or on top for when you really need to maximise the storage!
Two doors, that is! Yep, June 2019 was when we decided to add some lockers with more than one door. The Skinny, the Shorty + the Baskets were a huge hit - seriously, even better than expected - so it was time to add some newness to our range. Along with two new colours, Berry and Ocean, we also introduced two brand new styles of locker and the family continued to grow! We welcomed the Lowdown, which was literally made to fit into an alcove in Jess's flat. The Lowdown makes the perfect TV cabinet and is exactly 100cm, fitting into all the awkward alcoves in older houses (a familiar situation if you're in the UK!) Then along came the Midi, super versatile and our most spacious locker ever!
The Lowdown locker is your new favourite console, tv station or office storage. She's perfectly proportioned to make the most of that alcove or work just as well next to a bed. With holes in the back + lockable doors, she'll keep all your precious things safely inside.
The Midi locker really makes the most of her storage potential. Use her as a toy cupboard, in the kitchen or for hiding all the shoes + umbrellas in the hallway. The Midi not too big, not too small, she's just perfectly in the middle! Wherever she goes, The Midi will surprise you with how much will be hidden inside!
So not a lot happened in 2020...well, in the world of adding new products to our business, anyway. Covid made it pretty much impossible, so new product launches got moved to early 2021, which made the start of this year pretty exciting!
Our pièce de résistance, The Twinny, was born. She is the wardrobe of dreams and the perfect addition to our little locker family. With the Twinny came the Hangers, which had been a long time coming since our Skinny is also perfect for hanging clothes! We wanted to make hangers that would fit perfectly in both, and so we did - in all of our colours, two styles, in adults and kids sizes.
Designed for everyone, from teeny baby clothes to a full grown up wardrobe. The two rails mean little people can reach their favourite outfits - might even help them get dressed faster in the morning! The four shelves can be moved wherever you need them. The Twinny really is super versatile!
The Hangers bring a splash of colour to your wardrobe, an ideal accessory to your Skinny or Twinny. They come in two styles and sizes to neatly + beautifully hang your clothes. Kids or adult, tops and bottoms, we've got them all in our gorgeous colours.
So now you know the story of Mustard...well, our products anyway! There's so much more to see and we'd love for you to come along for the ride. Maybe you're a locker lover already, maybe you've only just stumbled across us (hello, if you have!) but we're very happy to have you here.
Which one is your favourite? Is there a type of locker you just need in your life that we haven't made yet? You can leave it in the comments below, or you can pop it in an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. We can't wait to hear from you!
