Statement piece: The Longcase clock

The longcase clock was created in 1670 by English clockmaker William Clement. It had a revolutionary design that sported a pendulum that swung exactly once per second encased inside a free-standing cabinet. Thanks to Clement’s timeless design, the grandfather clock has barely changed in its appearance in nearly 350 years. But to think that these great timepieces are outdated is a wrong assumption. When combined with the right furniture it can really upgrade your home.

Longcase clocks also referred to as grandfather clocks are one of those items that you love or simply hate. But here at VanGoghle we fancy this particular timepiece. 
We gathered some inspiring homes that have incorporated this great statement piece into their interior. Head over to our shop to discover the complete collection of clocks and barometers.
