One of the most famous brands on the high street comes to the Ideal Home Show this year as the JELD-WEN showhouse will be styled by designers from Marks & Spencer.

JELD-WEN, one of the UK’s leading timber window and door manufacturers, is taking the opportunity to showcase all its exciting new windows, doors and stairs released for 2007 in the stunning showhouse, which features a contemporary geometric, open plan design, just perfect for modern living.

Joanne Mitchell, Marketing Director for JELD-WEN, explains: “We are delighted to be working with Marks & Spencer to create a truly inspirational showhouse, which we hope will be one of the star attractions. This year we have gone for a very contemporary feel, to reflect the trend towards open plan living. We hope to inspire visitors with exciting new ways to bring in light and also to show how to make the best use of space in attractive multi-functional areas.”

The JELD-WEN house has been designed by Lynch Architects, winners of the Young Architect of the Year Award in 2005. The show house with its stunning ultra-modern look and feel has highlights including a huge patio and roof terrace on two levels and features 12 stunning Canberra sliding folding patio doors, to make the best possible use of natural light.

Sustainability is a key feature of JELD-WEN’s offering with all softwood windows and doors available with full FSC and PEFC Chain of Custody certification, which ensures they are sourced from well managed forests.

Timber windows continue to make a comeback, both for their attractive look and feel as well as for their environmental benefits.

JELD-WEN is looking forward to demonstrating the huge possibilities for adding light and creating unique features in the home through both standard and special window designs.

JELD-WEN will also reveal its latest NEW catalogues at the show – dedicated to doors, windows and stairs. Each catalogue is packed with ideas to inspire homeowners with innovative ideas of how to add value through doors, windows and stairs that create a great first impression as well as enhancing a lifestyle.

Revealed for the first time in the show house will be JELD-WEN’s exciting new products including:

The Kensington external doors range

The new Shaker internal doors

Classic and modern styles for timber windows

Exciting new contemporary stair designs
