Rare marble

We were lucky enough to be invited to Bari in Italy by Romagno Marmi to finalise some rare marbles for flooring and for the kitchen for the refurbishment of a large house located in Surrey.

Romagno Marmi are a traditional Italian marble company with seventy years of experience and passion. They source high quality stone to use for both construction and interior design. Romagno Marmi showed us around their warehouse, workshop and showroom. The selection of marble was beautiful with every colour imaginable. For the Surrey house refurbishment we are using a unique blue stone sourced from South America for the master bathroom suite in a line pattern, a warm grey white-veined and red-flecked marble for the kitchen island for the worktop and splashback. On the ground floor of the house in the main living areas we are using a rough brushed grey marble cut into diamond tiles with border to create a coherency between all the living areas.

Marble Quarry Greece

After the trip we were also sent some photos of the quarries from which some of the stone is located. If you scale the stone steps against the trucks you suddenly realise the enormity of the landscape. It truly is incredible to remember where the marble originates from.

Thanks again to Vito and Antonio of Romagno Marmi and their incredible hospitality during our time with them!


Zinc and Ply worktop

We are loving the new sample from Goldfinger Factory of their zinc and ply worktop for the kitchen, it looks beautiful. The zinc can be waterproofed to keep it looking as it looks in the photos or left unfinished, which over time, forms a beautiful patina for a more industrial look. The modern appearance is great for any planned kitchen and adds interest to any plain coloured cabinetry.

Goldfinger Factory is located at the ground level of the Trellick Tower and have an amazing collection of new bespoke furniture pieces and old furniture which has been lovingly restored sometimes with a twist.
