I first purchased a wooden seat with our family crest painted on from James 35 years ago and we have been very well seated ever since, now I always go to Tosca & Willoughby for my client’s loo seats and they always express deep seated satisfaction.

We have been happy customers of Tosca & Willoughby for many years; their seats are by far the best around. The bespoke service is always worthwhile, as so much can go wrong with other seats. James’ wonderful personal service is always a pleasure.

I first bought a Tosca & Willoughby loo seat over a decade ago. It was the burr walnut “omega” and my family has been delighted with it. We have purchased several more of various designs since and I introduced my brother-in-law [John Robinson] to them as well. They are certainly not the cheapest loo seat you can buy but Tosca & Willoughby’s quality and service are second to none. I can thoroughly recommend them.

I have been sitting very comfortably on Tosca & Willoughby loo seats for over 20 years, and I can’t imagine life without one! Generous in proportions, handsome in appearance and beautifully hand finished – worth every penny!

It came time to reseat the loos in our house near Bordeaux and after having spotted James’ humble advert in the back of a decoration magazine, I decided to get in touch. The subtle little advert was a hidden gem; the entire process from the embryonic designing of the artwork to the fully fledged seats now adorning no less than 14 of our loos was an absolute pleasure. Rather like choosing the specifications for your Rolls Royce this was a very personal process and we chose to decorate the seats with our family crest which is also our company logo, these were hand painted in opulent gold on each and every one of our walnut seats.
Our seats are the perfect complement to our property and are of constant admiration by clients, friends and family alike. Thank you very much for your beautiful craftsmanship and your efficiency; when you gave a date for the readiness of the order you delivered in a gentlemanly manner and even threw in a delightful lunch at the family home. What service, what care. On behalf of all our loo users, thank you.

We are absolutely delighted with our loo seats, they are extremely comfortable and always bright and welcoming - they add a twinkle in the eye of our guests when they reappear from the necessarium and a certain sense of satisfaction in my husband’s demeanour when he reappears from his own private extra necessarium.
As you know, the seats each have a family crest on them, but I am now thinking of ordering another seat with something which could be Wedding related painted onto it, so that I can add another decorative loo seat to our collection, this time in The Bridal Cottage. The ones we have still look flawless and they are very enjoyable assets!

I am most impressed with your painting…it is excellent. It should make a wonderful surprise birthday present.

Thomas Woodcock, Garter Principal King of Arms.

Heritage follows you everywhere…I have used James to paint my Swedish family arms onto our loo seats for a number of years and also onto seats as gifts with other European noble family arms. I have always found Tosca & Willoughby to be helpful and efficient and the quality of their products is second to none. I am very happy to recommend them.

Always helpful, good quality loo seats, well worth the money. Thank you.

The “Thunderbox” I commissioned for my husband for Christmas is quite the most beautifully crafted piece of workmanship. It has been much admired and both he, as recipient, and I, as giver, are utterly thrilled. It is exceptionally well made and fits as required like a dream. The family crest on the lid is beautifully painted with attention to detail and accuracy. It really is the perfect “family seat” and one of the most popular presents I have ever given!
