New site: Lincolnshire Furniture

Another site that went out a while ago and just wasn’t added here until now. Lincolnshire Furniture is a small business that (re-)creates custom furniture for homes and hospitality.

Lincolnshire Furniture

They don’t sell online, so there’s no e-commerce, but they do have a fairly large and interconnected catalog. This was a perfect opportunity to use Drupal (specifically the Panopoly distribution), tagging each product in its own page and setting up multiple views to display furniture by type, room, function, or a combination of those. Search functionality also comes with this CMS, naturally.

The theme used started off as one of those included in the distribution, but was modified to match the previous site as much as possible.

And then pulling together even more trigonometry to build an icosahedron:

Which was, while confusing at times, a surprisingly fun puzzle to solve.
