Five Star Pieces

We have been so touched by all your compliments and positive responses about our 5 star award winning stand at the Chelsea Flower Show.  It was an amazing week and we have had so enquiries about the products on show that we decided to give you more details about the handcrafted Chilstone pieces that made our RHS Chelsea Flower Show Stand five stars!

Kew Fountain

Our bestselling fountain, the water runs around its elegant bowl, decorated with stylised leaves, while water jets from acorn and lion masks.  Available in a range of colours, including Portland stone, this fountain can be antiqued. It is also available with an additional smaller bowl, for that impressive water flow with two tiers!

There are twenty working fountains at Chilstone’s show gardens. These can be customised and adapted by our master craftsmen across our range. We are happy to personalise pieces for our customers.

Pool Surround

Don’t forget your pool surrounds! Our stand featured a compact straight sided Chilstone Cornered Pool Surround. This comes is any size to order, This one was adapted with a pump to recycle water collected from the Sedum roof of the garden house, designed by Ali Dempster.  We have many different sizes in our range, curved or straight, ornate or contemporary. Ask our experts 01892 740866.

Longleat Urn and Pedestal

One if the finest urns originally created by the celebrated architect and designer, William Kent c. 1735. Four of the original six urns can still be seen at Longleat House. This piece adds a statement to grand gardens, vistas and avenues, but we thought it worked well in our small courtyard at RHS Chelsea Flower Show.

Pope’s Urn and Pedestal

This iconic urn has been copied from the original designed by William Kent for the writer Alexander Pope as a feature for his renowned garden at Twickenham overlooking the Thames. The Chilstone Pope’s Urn has been famously customised and brightly painted for Sir Roy Strong’s famous Laskett Gardens. Although the urn and pedestal are usually bought together, they can be purchased separately.

This piece is versatile for classical or contemporary spaces however you choose to style it.

 

Leda and the Swan Sculpture

We are so excited to be runners up for the prestigious RHS Product of the Year at the 2017 Chelsea Flower show! Such a big achievement for our team. The statue is a contemporary portrayal of classical myth of the conception of the famous beauty Helen of Troy with the seduction of her mother Leda by the Greek God Zeus in the guise of a swan. This was inspired by a statue displayed in the grounds of Hever Castle.  Handcrafted in our workshop from a resin and marble mix, new to our range, that is sleek and smooth, suitable for inside and outdoor use.

 

Friendship Armillary

This new extra-large design looks impressive with an armillary (£995.00*) or a sundial plate (£499.00). Engraved here in Latin with Semper Amigs Hora, Always time for friends, but it can be engraved with words of your choice. Engraving cost is excluded from the price, please discuss your personal choice with our team 01892 740866.

Cast Stone and Copper Alliums

These simple, but stunning ornaments are perfect for adding interest to flower beds and boarders. With a cast stone, ball shaped flower head and simple copper neck, these ornaments compliment planting all year round. Available with a 4 inch ball (£35) or a 6.5 inches (£49). We loved them amongst the Alliums and Lupins grown by the talented How Green Nursery that really made out Chelsea stand five star!

More to see

We couldn’t fit all our pieces on our stand, but there is so much to see at our show gardens near Between Langton Green and Fordcombe in Kent.  Come and see us!
