If you’re looking to enhance your home or business with elements of architectural heritage, the first place you should visit is Chadsworth Columns in Downtown Wilmington. The Front Street location is the home of a long-standing business—it’s been there over 25 years!
The business was started in Atlanta, GA, by Jeff Davis, a successful salesman who wanted a different kind of product to sell. He desired something with an artistic element that could be marketed using a better business model and he stumbled upon columns.
At that time, sales often involved three or more steps and Jeff developed a way to bring his product directly to the customer via mail-order and direct-shipping.
Initially, he only offered a limited selection of columns starting with the traditional, “Tower of Winds” column. Having seen and been impressed by the centuries-old, octagonal, timekeeping structure in Athens, Greece…and the fact that it was still standing…it seemed like a good design to replicate. Because Jeff's business model was so successful, he was able to expand his product range to the huge selection available today. His comprehensive website showcases various products including pergolas, moldings, shutters, balustrades, garden accents and ornaments.
Jeff works with architects across the world to give customers a variety of options for their projects. Customers and contractors can order online, have the products shipped anywhere in the world and download product specifications and installation instructions.
Having Chadsworth Columns in Downtown Wilmington is an added bonus because customers can see a selection of products and Jeff’s staff is available to answer any questions. Over the years, Jeff has worked with various local and community organizations. His products are visible on many buildings locally and worldwide including parts of Walt Disney World!
