SA HOME OWNER FEATURES WILSONSTONE

WilsonStone was commissioned to custom make a unique fireplace surround which beautifully compliments the décor, and becomes a focal element in this tasteful, contemporary home, which is showcased on page 51 the March edition of SA Home Owner.

WilsonStone always welcomes enquiries for custom designs. We specialise in GRC manufacturing, and are always excited to work with our clients to create the perfect product. Contact Lauren or Sue in Jhb, and Rob or Gawie in Cape Town, with any ideas or enquiries on custom designs for fireplace surrounds, or any other architectural or landscaping features.

OUR NEW GEO-CLASSIC TABLE DESIGN

We have recently introduced the Geo-Classic Patio Table to our range of outdoor furniture. This rectilinear table is classically contemporary, with its geometrically designed base, complimented beautifully with a stone top in sandstone or grey. Our tables are perfectly suited to full outdoor use.

BOLLARDS! BOLLARDS! BOLLARDS!

We know we have been banging on about bollards, but we are proud to attach our brand-new bollard brochure with this month’s News Flash.

We are also happy to tell you that it is also available on our website, with all our new designs just a click away!

As you know, we are always very happy to explore custom designs for special projects on bollards, bins and any other items. Below are some of the Custom Bollard Designs we have recently made for happy customers.

News Flash – February

In the spirit of romance, February brings renewed optimism to the new year with the giving of flowers and the celebration of love! In the same spirit, we have put together a few of our favourites to share with you!

The Raphael

We love the natural hues of The Raphael in Terracotta. This beautifully proportioned, traditional shape in our Renaissance collection, is the perfect size to make a statement at a front entrance or as a feature pot in a herb garden. Dimensions:

H 750 / Top D 885 / Base D 500

NOTHING SPEAKS ROMANCE LIKE THE TRANQUILITY OF AN EVENING

fire on a balmy evening. An elegant and exceptionally effective way to achieve this is with WilsonStone’s exquisite Fire Pit. A beautiful solution to any home where a Fire Pit scenario is required. At 1200 dia, this feature piece creates ambiance to every garden.

IF MUSIC BE THE FOOD OF LOVE, PLAY ON…

We love the clever use of WilsonStone’s Cut Stone coping to create these beautiful planter boxes with edge seating detail at the Loftus Park Development. Landscape Design: Danie Rebel Landscape Architect.

Johan Roux makes a bold statement by planting Pachypodium lameri from Madagascar, in the Windsor Bowl, creating this dramatic indoor plant-scape. H: 415 D: 800

And last, but not least, is the simple, elegant Corsica bench in GRC. This contemporary block bench is perfect for outdoor pause areas, or office park settings, and is a cost effective solution for all projects. L: 1800 H: 450 W: 310

News Flash – May

Corbels, window frames and bespoke GRC details were supplied by WilsonStone

ARCHITECTURAL ELEMENTS

“We shape our buildings; thereafter they shape us.” Winston Churchill

As Steyn City grows and evolves into the sought after urban refuge that it has become, we are proud to showcase WilsonStone’s involvement in the construction of Palazzo Steyn. This was a very high-profile project with extremely tight time constraints; the landscape element was only half of the project, as we also manufactured many of the custom architectural elements shown below. The project was a very memorable one due to the variety of elements involved.

Balustrading, wall copings and custom features were manufactured to the highest order

Q&A WITH OUR CEO, WILLIAM EDWARDS

What is WilsonStone’s unique selling point?

We are a very flexible business, especially in terms of design and capacity. We have an on-site pattern shop which greatly enhances new product development and the ability to produce custom products quickly and easily. We are also able to produce one off products (for example a water feature for a business park) as well as set up production lines to produce high volume items, required for the building trade, such as columns, caps and bases. These attributes allow us to cater for almost any project large or small.

What sets WilsonStone apart in this industry?

We aim to provide a quality product and service at a reasonable price, which is key to sustainability. Not producing quality products speaks for itself, but correct and reasonable pricing facilitates clients returning, and not looking to the competition to perhaps provide a similar product at a cheaper price.

In the spirit of Renaissance, we have introduced some beautiful new, classical pots to our range; created a new and easy-to-use catalogue (which we are delighted to attach with this NewsFlash); and we have also replanted and rejuvenated our showroom in Kensington.

THE RENAISSANCE RANGE

As we constantly strive to improve our product range, and stay relevant to our clients’ needs, we are proud to launch the new Renaissance Range to our Pot Catalogue: three new vases & an exquisite Oil Jar.
In keeping with the Old Masters, we have paid special attention to the scale and proportion of old European classics, with our constant focus remaining on quality.il.

LARGE TROUGHS

Keeping in touch with our market is important to us, and we came to realise that our clients were looking for longer, larger troughs. We are happy to introduce our new Kensington Large Trough at 1800mm long, which is a lovely traditional shape, working beautifully with our new Renaissance range of pots. We have also added two more contemporary troughs to our range, The Houghton and Houghton Trough Large

SHOWROOM REVIVAL

157 QUEEN STREET – WILSONSTONE & INSIDE OUTSIDE

In the spirit of our Renaissance theme, we spent a couple of fabulous days over the Easter period rejuvenating our showroom in Kensington! Planters were re-arranged and grouped, our new Renaissance planters were delivered, and everything was given a fresh, lush look – planted with gorgeous groupings of water-wise grasses, buxus and aloes.
Our lovely gift shop is also bursting with fabulous goodies – glass vases, lanterns, soft rugs, gifts and oodles of interesting décor pieces. If you need inspiration for a garden or need to show your clients our range of planters, benches, paving or fireplace surrounds, please pop in for a visit.
