Free Design Advice from Walnut Studiolo

Choices are good. Too many choices can be overwhelming. And sometimes you just need a friendly voice to bounce ideas off. That’s why we’re offering free design advice on our leather products, to help you with your home projects and bicycles.

This service is straightforward: if you’d like some help or suggestions picking from our collection of leather drawer pulls or bicycle accessories, shoot us a photo of your project with some notes.

We can do a photo archive search of similar materials, and sometimes even help draw mock-ups on your photos.

Our designer, Geoffrey Franklin, who graduated from the University of Oregon School of Architecture, will give his thoughts and suggestions. Our goal is to answer all inquiries within 48 hours.

This goes for bicycles as well as home projects! Just like every home, every bicycle is unique and has its own unique set of features reflecting the personality and needs of the rider. That’s how it should be! And it can make custom-fitting the right components what makes your bike unique and special. We’ll give you the same quality of design advice and feedback to fit your bicycle style, whether it’s advice on which style of leather handlebar wraps work best for your bars or what color would coordinate best.

Part of this free service includes a photo archive search. If we have customer or project photos that are relevant, we’ll share them with you to help with your decision. Wondering how the Natural leather handle looks on a Black cabinet? Or how the Sew-on Bar Wraps look on a bullhorn bar? Chances are good a customer has done it before and we’ll try to find it!
