Shippon Barn Staircase Featured in Homify
Bisca’s Shippon Barn Staircase has been featured in the Portuguese edition of Homify’s lastest e-newsletter.
This particular staircase design won the Build It Awards for Best Joinery Product last year and also the Best Product Design at Northern Design Awards.
The following is an extract from the lovely testimonial received from the client. It really underpins how Bisca differ from other “bespoke staircase manufacturers” in that we don’t ever use off the shelf or kit components and every staircase is 100% unique.
