These shelves, spanning some 1.9 metres, are given extra support with wooden brackets which were designed to complement the Art Deco interior.
The two-part plywood stand-in is secured with 3 toggle catches and is attached to each of the legs with a single bolt. A simple assembly process was essential as the stand-in will be transported and set up at many wedding fairs. Florist's website: yourlondonflorist.co.uk
