Winter is Coming. Comfort, Quality and Exquisite Design From Wills Bisgrove – Classic and Contemporary Chairs.

As the colours of Autumn start to turn it’s time to prepare for those long Winter evenings. Start with the refreshment of your home with Wills Bisgrove’s beautiful classic and contemporary furniture. A new occasional chair for the bedroom or living room. Dining chairs, sturdy, superbly crafted – hand-built, finished in fine fabrics and leathers. Or perhaps a full refurbishment of your living areas, starting with a beautifully crafted lounge suite – sofas, armchairs and ottomans – from Wills Bisgrove – luxury and clever design every time.

With the colder weather arriving it’s time to retreat indoors to the warmth and comfort of our homes and after 2021 we find ourselves more inclined to spend time at home. It feels right to simply sit back and relax, enjoy home cooking and entertaining friends. It’s the right time to refresh and renew with quality furniture from the Wills Bisgrove Collection

2021 had us spending most of our time at home. As a consequence, it was the first time in quite a while that we began to notice that our dining chairs, occasional chairs and even our full lounge suites were looking and feeling just a tad tired. So now it’s time to refresh and renew, to re-invigorate our living areas with new stylish furniture from Wills Bisgrove – in classic or contemporary designs.

Design excellence, real comfort and a touch of genuine luxury. The Wills Bisgrove Collection offers a superb palette from which to make your selection. This week we feature some of our popular occasional and dining chairs.

In any well designed, well planned living area, there is often the need to place or situate the ‘occasional’ chair. It could be a bedroom chair, or perhaps for a study or hallway. The Wills Bisgrove Collection offers a superb choice of simply beautiful, hand-crafted chairs admirably suited to purpose.

 Also on offer is a stunning selection of dining chairs to complement your selected dining table with a variety of fabrics, leathers and materials to suit all tastes and applications available.

A classic chair made by craftsmen using traditional techniques and upholstered for comfort and style is a wonderful choice. It can become the focus within a room or accompany a sumptuous sofa. The chairs in the Classic Collection at Wills Furniture offer traditional design and real comfort. Constructed from eucalypt hardwood, F7 Victorian Ash which is hand-picked and kiln dried, the frames are dowelled, glued and cramp joined, with sturdy corner blocks. Hand sprung hourglass steel coils, sprung edge seats, jute webbing, hand laced and finished with a stitched edge creates seats that are supremely comfortable and certainly built to last.

Simply select the design of your choice from our Wills Bisgrove Furniture Collection and the fabric of your choice from any fabric supplier to create a designer seat for your interior space.

Whether its modern contemporary style or traditional form and elegance – Wills Bisgrove Furniture is your destination. Your Designer or Decorator can browse through our extensive selection and be confident of finding the right setting, combination or piece to complete the wonderful vista planned for your home.
