BlogTour London Sponsors Lapicida – A Passion for Stone

We are thrilled to welcome world class stone specialists Lapicida as sponsors of BlogTour. These are people with a passion for stone and the craftsmanship to take extraordinary raw materials and turn them into the most remarkable floors and objects. Their bespoke stone offering, for example, starts from the premise that anything is possible. In Lapicida’s hands, limestone, marble, travertine, onyx, slate, sandstone, rock crystal and other semi-precious stones come alive.

And right next door you will find the workshops which are home to both traditional artisans and the technicians who handle the most advanced stone working equipment in Europe. Lapicida can only work their magic because they have fully embraced tradition and cutting edge technology in the pursuit of turning beautiful raw materials into spectacular surfaces and objects.

What’s exciting us is the prospect of visiting Lapicida’s new 5,000 foot show room at the heart of London’s ever fashionable Kings Road. Created in and dedicated to  natural stone the showroom is designed as a series of sets entered through a giant classical column.  We are looking forward to seeing  the ‘Dark Zone’, part of which is  shown above, where elements in glass mosaic and semi-precious stone glow and sparkle with internal and ambient light effects which respond as you walk by. And then there is 1000 sq ft area of antique floors with marble, limestone and terracotta pavements reclaimed from ancient buildings including  Jerusalem Stone,  historic mosaics and Yorkstone flags from a Georgian mill house.

There’s the  ‘Urban Garden featuring outdoor paving, balustrading and a wall of sandstone bamboo,  an ultra-contemporary kitchen, with worktops in a rare white petrified wood, a wood-paneled Library with stone books and an antique Barr de Montpelier floor. Marble bathrooms showcase many different applications including floors, walls and shower trays. Maybe we should have booked ourselves into the Lapicida showroom for a week.

We will also be seeing basins and baths carved from solid blocks of marble and limestone. We will be bringing you more from Lapicida, much of it live from their Kings Road showroom.
