Hotham Dining Chair

Let’s start with the Hotham Dining Chair. One of our more popular selections, the Hotham is a standard humpback styled chair, utilitarian yet simple and attractive. With tapered legs, choose between Victorian Ash and Tasmanian Oak, both of which can be highly polished or painted as desired. Enjoy the superb comfort of the hand tied coil sprung seat whilst relaxing over a good vintage with friends.

Melba Dining Chair

A standard scroll-back style dining chair, the Melba Dining Chair simple yet attractive. Again the choice is tapered legs in either Victorian Ash or Tasmanian Oak. Your Interior Designer can select to polish the legs or have them painted to specification.

Cambridge Dining Chair

A dining chair should be at once practical, comfortable and stylish. When it comes to practical it’s hard to go past the Cambridge Chair, a classic dining chair style with a humpback and stretcher rails, upholstered for comfort with a hand tied, coil sprung seat. Clients can choose Victorian Ash or Tasmanian Oak legs, which can be polished or painted to suit the style of the accompanying dining table and interior design of the dining room.

Hotham Carver Chair

A variation of the Hotham, the Hotham Carver Chair differs with highly polished timber arms and is slightly wider and higher to make the chair a feature of each end of the dining table. It’s eminently suitable to combine with the Hotham in creating a unique dining table ensemble.

Stockton Stool

The Stockton Stool can be used as a barstool or Kitchen stool. With its arched back tub style, timber detailing and firm foam seat, it’s the barstool that won’t see you moving too far – it’s so comfortable. Strong durable frame – its built to last a lifetime. So cheers to the Stockton!

In recent advertising campaigns a number of large furniture retailers have made claims to offering for sale ‘handcrafted’ furniture. It would be interesting to investigate the veracity of such claims. A glance, even with an untrained eye, will immediately notice that this simply isn’t true.

The Timeless Design of Wills Bisgrove’s Classic Selection – Sofas and Armchairs

With beautiful, handcrafted lines, traditional fabrics and leathers, with features such as buttoning, studding and piping, the Wills Bisgrove Collection is superb and always stands the test of time. 

As we all know this year’s colours, fabrics and bespoke designs can quickly become dated. Traditionally furniture is a long term proposition. For many the choice is simple – select a classic design, something that ages well, that will look superb in 10 years’ time, something that can be updated, with fabrics refreshed, springs and webbing replaced, timber finishes repolished – something that looks elegant and beautiful and is supremely comfortable. Look no further than the Wills Bisgrove Sofa Classic Collection and Armchair Collection. Timeless exquisite beauty, handcrafted quality.
