For those who prefer the appeal of fancy, embellished radiator models, Trads has a diverse selection. Inspired by authentic period pieces, each radiator reflects a distinct style, ranging from Art Nouveau to regal flair. Visit our website to view the complete range. 

Rococo 1 Column

Inspired by the opulence of the Rococo era, the Rococo 1 Column boasts intricate detailing and graceful curves that evoke a sense of refinement. Whether gracing the halls of a historic mansion or adding a touch of regal splendour to a contemporary interior, this exquisite radiator exudes timeless charm. There are three Rococo models all available in 2 heights. 


Named after the iconic Queen of France, the Antoinette radiator channels the allure of French Baroque design with its ornate motifs and intricate flourishes. This radiator serves as a focal point in any room, infusing it with a sense of romance and sophistication reminiscent of regal interiors.

Liberty 2 Column

Inspired by the Art Nouveau movement, the Liberty 2 Column features clean lines and understated elegance, making it a versatile choice for both traditional and modern interiors. These decorative cast iron radiators are available with 1 or 2 columns depending on the required heat output and preferred aesthetic.  

Ribbon 4 Column

Incorporating the fluidity of ribbons dancing in the breeze, the Ribbon 4 Column captivates with its graceful curves and flowing lines. Whether adorning the walls of a chic boutique hotel or acting as a focal point in a contemporary loft apartment, this radiator creates an impact. Available in 2 heights, or as a slimmer 2-column model, the Ribbon can be adapted to suit any space. 


Featuring cherubs, dragons and lions entwined in vines, decorative cast iron radiators don’t get more intricate than this. With its elaborate detailing, the Verona transforms any room into a sanctuary of warmth and style. This model is compatible with air source heat pumps and, like all cast iron models, can be fitted with an electric heating element if required. 

Customised Service

Trads’ easy-to-use radiator builder allows buyers to customise every aspect of their new model. Select the desired height and number of sections based on the BTU requirements for the room and complete the look with a choice of over 10,000 colours and finishes. Request a swatch sample of up to 6 colours to preview before purchase, or choose Trads’ colour match service to pair the radiator hue with an existing colour scheme. By opting for a highlight polish, the raised details of decorative cast iron radiators are polished by hand using a fine abrasive wheel after being painted. Other finishes, such as hand-burnished and satin polish, are achieved using ceramic abrasives but the radiators are not painted beforehand.
