About Us

Taylor & Stirling has been servicing the window furnishing needs of customers in Daylesford, Ballan, Bacchus Marsh and the Victorian Central Highlands region since 1946.  We have recently launched our second store in Huonville, in southern Tasmania, supporting the Huon Valley and Channel areas.

Taylor & Stirling’s dedicated staff have over 110+ combined years in the blind and curtain trade, and we believe we can offer our customers a window furnishings service that is second to none.

Our business premises are located at 22 Sturt, Ballarat, Victoria, in one of the town’s historic buildings; and 11 Wilmot Rd Huonville, Tasmania, in an early farming house built in the early 1900’s.  Please visit our shopfronts to browse our range of products and speak with us directly.  We can also come to you with a range of fabrics and solutions – we offer a free measure and quote service within designated areas.

Ballarat & Bruny Island Manufacturing

We pride ourselves in manufacturing locally in Ballarat and on Bruny Island which enables us to guarantee the quality of the workmanship.  If we can’t manufacture locally we only source from our supply chain to bring you the best possible products. Taylor & Stirling customers have the peace of mind of knowing they are dealing directly with the manufacturer and can expect a professional and reliable service.

The History of Our Building – Ballarat

We moved into our new retail space in November 2013.  The building has been part of the Ballarat retail scene since the early 1850’s.  It was initially used by one of many local Iron Mongers, before moving into Motor Cycles & Cycles, with the “Ballarat” motorcycle built on the premises.  A petrol bowser was a fixture for many years allowing cars and motorcycles to fill up out the front.  In the late 1940’s in became the Malvern Star shop.  For many years following it was the location of the The Courier printing press (the home to the first colour printing press outside of Melbourne) and photo developing labs upstairs.  Later, it housed The WoolShop for a few years, and after, a Car Audio sales and installation business.

History Of  Our Building – Huonville

The Wilmot Road building was the original farm house belonging to the Walton Family farm and has withstood many a flood of the Huon River.  We recently renovated the house and have fitted out the showroom with a wealth of wonderful sample fabrics and solutions for window furnishings, wallpaper, upholstery, and more.
