Villiers has become synonymous with elegant, timeless statement pieces inspired by nature, and built by craftsmen. Designed and custom-made to last more than a lifetime, Villiers creates truly bespoke hotel furniture pieces, hotel spa furniture and outdoor hotel lighting sculptures that can be enjoyed today and by generations to come. We take great pride in the quality, integrity and originality of our work. Our luxury bespoke furniture and hand-forged sculptures are displayed in the finest hotels, private residences, yachts and luxury spas across the world.
Our furniture and sculptures are handcrafted from the finest materials and metals including glass, granite, limestone, marble and bronze. The Villiers design and build signature pieces from a workshop in the English countryside. Combining traditional methods and modern tools, a team of artisans hand forge sculptured shapes to create striking results with a flawless finish. Beautiful and breathtaking, solid and functional, Villiers furniture is handmade to order and built to last.
All of our outdoor hotel lighting sculptures and bespoke hotel furniture pieces and hotel spa furniture are forged from a unique blend of inspired design, traditional craftsmanship, innovative material use and sheer passion. Working closely with some of the world’s finest Interior Designers, Architects and a range of private clients, Villiers create completely bespoke pieces and customised versions of existing designs. Our luxury furniture and sculptures are renowned for their intricate detailing, beautiful curving, perfect symmetry, sizing and superior finish – all tailored to the client’s style and specification.
This year, our passion for beautifully made metal work led us to the opportunity of a new initiative with Australian award-winning sculptor, Matt Hill. Matt’s signature pieces are large geometric animals and stratified spheres that light up at night. Created from Corten steel, his globally recognised large-scale sculptures include elephants, hippopotamuses and, of course, kangaroos.
The Villiers’ collaboration with Matt Hill allows us to bring his unique work to the northern hemisphere, with a lower carbon footprint. Using Matt’s exacting designs, authenticated with his signature, our team custom builds and delivers mesmerising sculptures to order. The steel structures are already 40% recycled material when built, they require no maintenance and naturally oxidise over time to a beautiful rust-red finish.
Originally the business consisted of three brothers – Harry, Tim and Hugo, a wooden farm building and a determination to create beautiful and strikingly different pieces of furniture to the highest quality. An encounter in 1989 led to commissions for Christopher Neville, The Royal Opera House and Liberty of London. At that point Villiers: Handmade in England came into being. After many years of working together, Villiers is now managed solely by Tim Villiers and the team.
Villiers are British furniture makers dedicated to the design and creation of the most exquisite bespoke hotel furniture pieces, hotel spa furniture and outdoor hotel lighting sculptures. With a focus on beautiful shapes, perfect form and a timeless style, Villiers work with fine metals and materials to produce signature pieces of the very highest of quality. Villiers find inspiration in nature and their rural surroundings, blending curves and twists with classic geometric shapes and modern finishes to create a unique style.
We are experts in our field, bringing innovative designs and vision to life with traditional workmanship and the finest materials. Combining modern technologies with sustainable practices and a highly skilled team of artisans, Villiers is proud to create luxury bespoke designer furniture and sculptured works of art. Every Villiers piece is made to order, whether we are working to an existing design, or a one-off commission. No project is rushed. We take the time to fully understand and appreciate a client’s requirements before work begins.
We use a blend of industrial and fine metals, stone, glass and solid woods to create elegant modern originals. For every individual hotel spa furniture piece, bespoke hotel furniture piece and outdoor hotel lighting sculpture, we allocate a generous amount of studio time for initial design, consultation and iterations. This is followed by scheduled time in the Villiers workshop for forging, building, polishing and perfecting each item. We pride ourselves on our superior craftsmanship, attention to detail, distinctive finishes and breathtaking results.
Villiers attracts interest and accolades across the UK and worldwide. Our luxury bespoke furniture and modern sculpture have featured in the national and international lifestyle press. Our work has received accolades from a number of highly regarded publishers and organisations. Among the accolades received in recent years are the Design et Al 2012 International Product Design; Decorex 2007 Best Stand; and the House and Garden 2005 Award for Best Merchandise.
