Solutions for Solitary Seating & Social Distancing

With Social Distancing being the new normal, we have several stunning solutions for outdoor seating, which would automatically create the necessary space required to avoid close contact in an outdoor space or pause area.

The Drum Bollard and Noetzie Bollard double as clever solutions for demarkating areas whilst providing single-spaced seating. The Noetzie Bollard comes in smooth concrete, sandstone and exposed aggreate finishes.

The 250 Cube placed strategically between your chosen outdoor seating, will provide a decorative psycological barrier to keep people apart at a responsible social distance.

ARCHITECTURAL ELEMENTS MAKE A STUNNING STATEMENT

Be it beautiful bespoke pillars framing a grand front doorway; or custom cladding and corbels, WilsonStone can create a unique solution for the most stylish of designs. WilsonStone has a dedicated architectural design pattern shop that creates custom moulds for all moulded products. Our moulded products are created using re-constituted sandstone or glass reenforced cement (GRC)

 

 

News Flash – May 2020

To all our friends in business, we wish you ongoing good health, fortitude, and positivity as some of us re-open our doors for business now that we have entered Level 4 of the Lockdown Process, in the face of this unprecedented global pandemic.

WilsonStone re-opened our manufacturing during Level 4 Lockdown as of 1st May. Our factory will be operating with different protocols, a reduced labour force, and strict social distancing in place. We will also be constantly monitoring the protocols of different Lockdown Phases, so manufacturing will be wholly dependent on these guidelines.

We are all in the same boat, trying our best to navigate our way through these uncertain times, whilst trying to re-boot the economy by re-opening our places of work in the safest, and most socially responsible way possible.

Our sales team are all working and are contactable via email and phone, and we invite enquiries, calls, and quote requests as per usual.

HOT OFF THE PRESS

Our new Fireplace Surround Brochure showcases our 20 most popular and timeless Fireplace Surrounds. Elegance in the form of a beautiful fireplace exudes warmth and joy to every home. What better way to beat the lockdown blues but revamping the heart of the home with one of our beautiful architectural fireplace surrounds.

During lockdown, we have been focusing on re-vamping our Fireplace Surrounds. Our Fireplace Surrounds are standard, but like most items, can be designed and manufactured to specification for special projects, as well as custom Built-in Braai Surronds.

BOLD AND BEAUTIFUL BINS

We have not been letting the grass grow under our feet during this lockdown phase, so are also underway with revamping our bin range. We have looked carefully at our most popular bins, and then added some fabulous new contemporary bins to the range, which we are excited to share with you!

So rather than keep you in suspense for another month, here are some of the new bins which will be launched shortly!

With environmental awareness growing by the day, it is essential that we provide an elegant solution to the separation of general waste from recyclable waste. We have come up with this clever solution that works in any and every retail and commercial setting. Our recycling Bins can now be customized with laser-cut logos, and are made in stainless steel or galvanized steel in an elegant GRC frame.

BECOME SELF SUFFICIENT
Plant Container Veggie Gardens

With more and more of us working from home, and wanting to become more self sufficient and “off the grid”, vegetable gardens solve that problem in a matter of weeks. What better way to maintain a neat, contained and beautiful looking veggie garden, than by using WilsonStone’s gorgeous range of timeless pots and troughs.

For a contemporary look – two great containers to start with are:

The Long Leith Trough (left)
(H:390 W:350 L:2000mm)

The Leith Trough (right)
(H:385 W:350 L:350mm)

To create a beautiful, traditional feel to your veggie garden, our Renaissance range of garden pots will simply groan with the abundance of home grown aubergines, tomatoes and fresh cabbages, creating beauty and bounty in exquisite containers.

The Solari Medi (H: 535 Top Diameter: 700mm)
The Kensington Trough Large (H: 600 W: 530 L: 1800mm)

 

 

WINTER VEGGIE BOUNTY

This autumn it’s a great time to start sowing broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower and Brussels sprouts.These will be ready to plant from seedlings when the weather cools down. You can also still sow lettuce, Swiss chard, carrots, leeks, turnips and parsnips.

WilsonStone’s operations will be closed during the duration of the nationwide lockdown period, but the Showroom telephone & email will be diverted to the relevant persons, and we will be contactable on our cell phones and via email, should you have any queries, or require any quotes over this period. 

FRIED GREEN TOMATOES!

One of the most important things to ensure tomato success, is to use a big enough container. For one plant you’ll need a container which is at least 600 x 600mm or larger. Fill this with good quality potting soil and make sure there is good drainage. Tomatoes take approx. 20 to 30 days to reach maturity from when they first appear on the plant. Get planting and reap your rewards!

 

 

 

SITTING PRETTY

Why not create the perfect outdoor seating arrangement by combining a couple of these contemporary Corsica Benches to create an uber- cool pause area? Available in Grey, Sandstone, Charcoal & Limestone, these versatile outdoor benches are perfect for every setting.

WILSONSTONE DURING LOCKDOWN

We at WilsonStone, send our thoughts and solidarity to all of you over this difficult and trying time ahead, and wish you good health and safety.

With the swift action taken by our President, we can only hope that this global pandemic is controlled quickly in South Africa, so that we can all resume normal life and work as soon as possible.

We will keep you informed as to when we will again be operational via our News Flashes and email correspondence.

Thank you all for your understanding and co-operation, and all the very best for the coming months ahead.

Warmest wishes
The WilsonStone Team

WHAT’S ON TREND?

In keeping with international designs and trends, WilsonStone is on point with its comtemporary large planters, in various shapes and sizes, ideally suited to creating interesting, creative green barrier planting in any urban landscape.

THE DELAWARE BIN ROCKS IN RHINO WOOD

No metals, foreign oils, biocides or other toxic substances are introduced, making it completely people and pet friendly. The treatment process doubles the density of the wood. An increased hardness means less dents, scratches, and surface damage. We are also using Rhino Wood in our bench range and other products.

FIREPLACE SURROUNDS

This magnificent custom made Fireplace Surround is a great example of how we in our pattern shop, can come up with products to suit every requirement.

CORBELS Not only do we make custom fireplace surrounds, but custom window surrounds and other decorative elements to compliment every design, such as the magnificent corbels custom made for a recently completed home.

OUR KNIGHTSBRIDGE FIREPLACE IS FESTOONED AND READY FOR A FABULOUS FESTIVE SEASON!

Incredibly, the year is almost at it’s close, as we look ahead to a new decade, the “Roaring Twenties”, which are just around the corner…

I am sure we might agree that 2019 has not been without its challenges, but we at WilsonStone continue to look towards the future with optimism, and continue our mission to provide quality products, excellent service to our clients, and positivity in business, as we head into the next decade! Once more, we would like to thank all our clients for their ongoing support over this past year, and wish you all everything of the best for a wonderful holiday season ahead, and a well deserved rest over the holidays.

THE MAGESTIC DELAWARE BENCH

I recently enjoyed a fabulous morning at the regal old Johannesburg Country Club, and couldn’t resist taking a few pics of our magestic Delaware Benches, which are elegantly dotted along the edges of the manicured walkways and courtyards.

SUMMER EVENINGS MADE ALL THE MORE SPECIAL AROUND BESPOKE FIREPITS

Our Cape Town team worked their magic to create this gorgeous Coreten Steel Wood Stack to compliment our Fire Pit. Beautiful for starry nights, to sit outdoors and celebrate the coming New Year, we wish you all a peaceful and happy start to 2020.

CUSTOM PIECES ARE OUR FORTE!

We were recently commissioned to manufacture this custom pot design by Hennie Pelser from Nuclei, which was installed by CPM Projects. Intricate in detail, our pattern shop nailed it and we are proud to showcase the result.

Custom storage units in treated wood were commissioned to compliment our 500 Cube Troughs. A clever use of space and a great way to conceal pool noodles, while creating useful seating by the pool!

MORE & MORE POOLS ARE BEING CREATIVELY PAVED WITH OUR BEAUTIFUL CUT STONE COPING

Here is another example of a creative pool design surrounded with our Cut Stone Coping in Charcoal, bullnosed on both sides. Summer is here, but we still have time to supply coping and paving to get those pool surrounds ship-shape before the holidays!

WATER FEATURES PROMINENTLY IN THE CAPE

A sense of zen is created in Cape Town, where our beautiful Windsor Bowl is cleverly adapted to create two completely different looking water features, which become the focul points of these tranquil outdoor spaces.

Congratulations to Rob and our Cape Town team for customising the Windsor Bowl to suit the individual requirements of these creative customers.

Customising our pot designs to work as water features is often asked of us, and we are always happy to assist wherever possible.

MORE & MORE POOLS ARE BEING CREATIVELY PAVED WITH OUR BEAUTIFUL CUT STONE COPING

Many thanks to the team at PoolStyle for sharing this photo of a recently completed pool which was paved in Sandstone 2 Cut Stone Coping and Paving. We love receiving pictures from our customers and it is always nice to share them on for inspiration. Please send pics to sue@wilsonstone.co.za

FEATURED THIS OCTOBER

The simplicity of the design of the Turin Rest Set makes this the perfect solution for al fresco dining in a home environment, or alternatively an appealing design for outdoor areas in office parks, and public parks and gardens.

Not only do the elegant lines of this rest set work in almost every setting, it is an exceptionally well priced product which makes it an affordable solution for outdoor living.

It comes in both cement grey and sandstone, and in lengths of both 1500mm and 1800mm.

LET THE SUMMER BEGIN

As the start of October brings us into the final quarter of 2019, we urge you all to get your orders in as soon as possible for end of year deliveries. A sense of urgency prevails as everyone strives to complete projects before year end, so please remember that we require a five to six week lead time to complete orders at this busy time of year.

SAFARI ANYONE? CLARENS POOL COPING MAKES A SPLASH IN THE BUSH!

Clarens Deluxe Pool Coping in Cream looks spectacular in this natural bush-scape. The pavers gently blend with the earth tones of the environment, creating a tranquil oasis within this peaceful bush camp. Congrats to Westonwood Pools and Decking in Hoedspruit on a job well done!

The moulded profile of the Clarens Deluxe Coping makes an elegant finish to any pool, and custom radius corners were used on the Bush Pool to complete the look.

ITALIAN DESIGN IS GORGEOUS IN GREEN – THE FIRENZE BENCH LOOKS ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS!

Versatility is what we are known for. Here, we customised the finish of our Firenze bench in a beautiful lime green hue. An easy solution to creating something unique for any funky urban landscape design.

Another unique use of our paving is this floating block walkway at the entrance of this stunning home. Grey CutStone pavers sized at 990*490mm were used to create this contemporary entrance.
