  • Bespoke Window Bench Seat

    Bespoke benches and seating

    A customer asked us to design a bespoke kitchen for their property. It was a very interesting build and had a number of rounded walls.

    The client was considering putting a kitchen style window seat under some windows at the opposite site of their main kitchen. After looking at lots of options we decided that rather than this, we would design a window bench seat that would add to the overall look rather than just continuing the kitchen units.

     

    Customer was delighted and has received lots of comments on the piece.

    So if you would like us to design and supply an interesting bench then just give us a call or drop us an email.

    Hope you like it too.

  • Traditional Wooden Cottage / Farm house Doors

    Customers have told us that its really difficult to find nice cottage style doors / farm house doors and that "normal" companies that supply doors just don't do them or if they do, that they look cheap and nasty.

  • Using Original Cast iron radiators in contemporary settings

    Why not Incorporate a bit of style and character with Original cast iron Radiators


    Often people only associated vintage cast iron radiators with Victorian or Georgian houses and country cottages. Whilst they certainly do suit these styles of properties, they also look fantastic in more contemporary, shaper houses and apartments.

    They add a certain style and character that simply is not achieved with modern products. They become a piece of furniture and almost a piece of art in some cases.

     

    So if you are looking for ideas when redesigning, refurbishing or building a new property, why not consider a vintage fully refurbished cast iron radiator or even a quality new cast Iron Radiator to add a little something to your project.

    We ship radiators to London, Edinburgh, Manchester, Birmingham, Dublin, Cork, Belfast and throughout the UK, Ireland and all over Europe.

  • Bronze Crocodile garden feature

    Where have all the goldfish gone?

    I chap was in the yard last year and was trying to find a individual garden piece to finish of a water feature in his garden. We happened to have a full size bronze Crocodile in stock and the chap thought this would be perfect for his garden.

    He popped in a few weeks ago with pictures to show how it turned out.

    Looks great. Thanks for the pictures Jim

    So if you happen to be looking for something unusual to finish of an interior or exterior project then it might just be worth dropping in to Wilsons yard for a look.

  • Original Cast Iron Windows

    Old cast Iron windows can look great in a traditional buildings

    When re refurbished our kitchen showroom we had a look around the yard to see if we could find some old windows to use. We had a number of reclaimed / salvaged cast iron diamond patterned windows, so we decided to have them put into wooden window frames.

    Since they have been put in we get lots of people commenting on them. Here are a few images of how they looked before and after.

    I am really pleased with them and frankly it was not a big deal for a joinery company to incorporate them into the wooden frames. To finish of we simply give them a "rough" painting so that it was obvious that they were old.

    Hope you enjoy.

  • Old reclaimed wooden floors and sharp contemporary furniture

    I personally think that old reclaimed wooden floors and sharp contemporary furniture work really well together.

    We were recently involved in supplying a Bespoke kitchen, reclaimed wooden floors, reclaimed beams and furniture to a really really nice family in Co Londonderry. They bought reclaimed Barn Oak flooring and a Funky pair of Chrome chairs with aged leather seats.

    I thought that they worked really well and created a fantastic look.

    Hope you like too.
