Sometimes It's Hard to Let Go

We absolutely love what we do! No, seriously...we love creating cool furniture and seeing people light up with they find just the right piece for their space. The tough part about this job is letting go. I love what we create so much that I want to keep it all!! 

Never has that been more true than this weekend when we delivered our 'Sarah' (salvaged wood & unpainted steel entrance hall bench) to the lovely couple who commissioned the piece. To me, and I hope to our clients as well, this bench is the absolute perfect mix of urban-country chic meets practicality. A place to rest while putting on your shoes, and a place to put those shoes when you get home. Unpainted steel gives a modern look and the salvaged wood adds a touch of warmth and character.

I have got to tell you, the only thing that stopped me from keeping this bench was my obvious lack of a place to put it. I think it's time to buy me a warehouse!

We're Stretching Our Creativity Even Further

Jan 8th, 2018

This year the Wilkins Design team are planning to dig even deeper into the world of reclaimed, recycled and salvaged materials. We’ll be searching out even more unusual scrap materials and dragging home crazy roadside finds to reimagine and create into one-of-a-kind furniture and art pieces…but that’s not all!


Yes, you can shop online!

Of course, our items are one-of-a-kind, but if a piece isn't already spoken for, we'll post it to our online shop here.


Happy Customers Speak Up!

  • A huge congrats on an awesome first show. The pieces on display were beautiful examples of form partnering with function. Genuine artistry.
