Company History

Established in 2011, our award-winning company has expanded steadily to become the largest provider of under stairs storage in the UK and Ireland. The company originated as a solution to a storage crisis faced by CEO Paul Jacob. Faced with a growing ‘shoe crisis’, Paul designed an under stairs storage unit for his own home. The product was then showcased on Dragon’s Den and expansion quickly began throughout Ireland and the UK as a direct to consumer product. More than 30,000 patent-approved storage units have been fitted to date. 

In recent years, our business to business department has been established enabling us to develop partnerships with leading architects, designers, interior designers and building developers. Today, we work closely with the construction industry across Ireland and the UK to increase storage capacity within new residential developments. We are currently working closely with leading developers including Brampton Valley Homes, Higgins Homes, Flynn O’Flaherty, Westin Homes, O’Flynn Construction, Glenveigh and many more.

Our Product

With more than 30,000 units fitted to date, quality and premium craftsmanship are at the core of our manufacturing and design processes. Practical and functional, the drawers seamlessly slide out to give ample and accessible storage space, ensuring no space is wasted. Designed to be handle free, the units integrate seamlessly with the staircase, again complementing the aesthetic of modern builds. Our under stairs storage units are designed to suit straight and winder staircases of all pitches. The installation of an under stairs storage solution ensures that new homeowners step into a clutter and stress free oasis. The units neatly store the unsightly items which traditionally clutter the hallway such as shoes, school bags, coats, ironing boards, luggage and golf bags. The minimalist and discreet design enables our storage units to integrate seamlessly with the design of modern homes, whilst removing the need for unattractive hangers, storage racks and shelving.
