We the staff at Westland London are deeply saddened to announce the passing of our Director Geoffrey Westland who died in the early hours of Sunday morning on the 24th March 2013.
Geoff steadfastly built the company day by day over a period of 35 years with an inexhaustible enthusiasm, strength and creative energy.
He ran a tight ship in a stimulating work environment, nurturing the business and staff alike, always pushing everyone to go further, learn more and think creatively. He was our mentor and lead us with a strict but caring and forgiving presence. His wide knowledge, experience and creative instincts encouraged in us an understanding and enthusiasm for the world of art and antiques.
Geoff made sure that the company would continue for many years to come. In tribute to his memory we will strive to follow his example and maintain the standards that he achieved ensuring that the company will always be run in the way that he would have wished.
He is irreplaceable and he will be fondly remembered in our hearts forever. We will all miss him greatly.

Welcome to Westland * London
We extend a warm welcome to all – our long-standing customers, new enquirers and visitors alike. Westland London source, restore and present a vast and comprehensive collection of architectural antiques, extraordinary fireplace mantels and accessories, antique lighting, garden elements, fountains and statuary, and architectural ornamentation for the exterior and interior - of all styles, epochs, origins and materials - the aim and bywords in each case being “Best of its Kind”.
Westland London is known by discerning customers worldwide primarily for its presentation of a vast range of antique fireplaces in marble, stone, wood and metal and their accessories – andirons & fire grates. The aim is also, where appropriate, to depict the fascinating design history and story of the origins and provenances (where known) of many antique fireplaces, andirons, firegrates, and interesting items across all categories.
Complementing the fireplaces is a wide choice in antique lighting from crystal chandeliers, Gothic brass ceiling lights and decorative French gilt sconces to lanterns and wall lights, displayed alongside antique mirrors, tapestries, furniture, paintings, sculpture and intriguing ornamentation of great individuality and desirability.
The collections include richly carved oak panelling, antique overmantles, fine columns and plinths, antique stained glass windows, panelled doors and other architectural elements, often of exotic & extraordinary quality, concept and style. The exterior courtyard displays garden ornamentation, sculpture and antique fountains; from the grander fountains to birdbaths and obelisks - for all locations - from modest urban homes to grand estates.
As can be seen from the website or a visit - we consider that our presentations over the years confirm the fascination and sheer pleasure of viewing and possessing such a variety of choice in style, scale and materials, brought to market and displayed by us in one location.
