A WHITCHURCH designer has put local products on display after styling two new showhomes in the town.

House builder, Wain Homes, has launched the properties at new housing development at Talbot Manor on Alport Road and took advantage of the chance to showcase sustainability.

Each property has furnishings, of which many have been sourced by local businesses, thanks to Whitchurch-based designer, Alex Egan of Stanza Style Interiors.

Alex said: "Sustainability is incredibly important and Wain Homes saw an opportunity to take a lead in helping to show people how beautiful, rewarding and responsible eco-friendly design can be.

"Every single room in both of these stunning new homes contains sustainable, recycled or upcycled furniture, fixtures and fittings - many of which are being sold in our own wonderful town centre."

Both properties feature a range of fixtures, fittings and furnishings sourced from Whitchurch town centre and the surrounding areas, including kitchen and decorative products from Landfill Angels, artisan cushions, vases and candles from Home Folk, glass storage jars and larder items from Refill Your Boots, furnishings from Moo & Boom, artwork from Antique Emporium and a range of recycled products from nearby Alderford Lake and Wild Moss in Malpas.

Sharon Wood, sales director of Wain Homes added: "Talbot Manor is our first development in Whitchurch and we wanted to create something extraordinary to celebrate.

"A tour around the show homes is like a lesson in sustainability.

"All the eco-friendly items are tagged, highlighting the local suppliers and explaining how each item is environmentally friendly, so we hope our visitors will be inspired to shop locally and responsibly when they can see what’s on offer.

"Being from Whitchurch, Alex has the local knowledge and was able to collaborate with many small local businesses on the design project for our show homes and we were able to support local traders in the town at the same time."
