When Clayton sees the need, he designs furniture and then collaborates with others to get his vision produced in reality.  There is one piece he designed which is used multiple times a day – a low “bench” for sitting on while donning and doffing boots.  It is the perfect height – one doesn’t need to lean over too far, yet it’s high enough that when the Labradors come along to “help,” a half-on boot can be raised over their backs. The bench has a padded portion on which to sit and a flat wooden portion for collars, gloves, hats, etc.  There is enough space underneath the stretcher for recently shed slippers or sneakers.  And as so typical of Clayton’s designs, this incredibly utilitarian piece of furniture has great proportions and looks very attractive.Boot bench
