Every so often we at Lighting Interiors Online will showcase a brand which not only has a quality which beats all competition, but is bespoke, made to measure and is completely designed to fit the client’s needs. Allow us to introduce BISCA, a staircase business based in North Yorkshire like no other. Started in 1994 by Richard McLane, a master blacksmith and first-class graduate of Design from the University of Northumbria, the company works with local, skilled craftsmen who can deliver the highest quality of work. What makes them special is, in their words, 'we start with a blank slate and build the project up from there.'

But what does the company name mean? Well, when Richard first started the company he used brass, iron, steel, copper and aluminium to craft the products, thus, the name is an acronym born from these materials. BISCA admits that since starting, their material list has expanded to include glass, stone, timber, and many more. It’s clear that the group haven’t lost their connection to the beginnings and have instead built on it to create something incredibly special.

Every staircase that is commissioned is built three times: once in digital 3D, once in the workshop and finally assembled in the client’s chosen space. BISCA makes it clear that it is only when the client is 100% happy with each step does it move onto the next one.


The company has noted, 'we are frequently told by clients requiring something out of the ordinary, that Bisca are the only company even willing to consider their project.' This willingness to venture into the seemingly unknown while making sure everything is exactly as it should be and the customer is completely satisfied is why the company is rated so highly, and often regarded as making the best
staircases in the world. This expert craftmanship and top customer service sees BISCA regularly feature in premium interior design projects, as well as feature magazines that showcase the highest end of the design world.

The staircases themselves really are something to be admired. The blend of materials, smooth, shapeliness and luxurious appearance make them suitable for an incredibly varied, wide range of projects. While we might be in love with their design and eagerness to impress, what do their actual customers have to say about BISCA?

Some compare the bespoke products to luxury British vehicles:

“If Rolls Royce did staircases…” – JP Yorkshire

Others highlight the team’s keen eye for quality:

“Impressed by the quality of the stairs and the site team’s attention to detail.” – ST Bedfordshire

The beautiful blend of quality craftmanship and complete uniqueness are what makes BISCA a market-leading company, producing some of the world’s best staircases and balustrades. Richard McLane’s extensive experience and passionate team demonstrate a fantastic working ability which ensures complete satisfaction is achieved.
