FIREPLACE MATERIAL GUIDE

We work with a wide range of marble, limestone, travertine and sandstone. Our collections are carved from the following range of materials sourced from specialist quarries around the world.

The appearance of each type of stone differs from region to region depending on the mineral composition of the earth where it was formed and determines the vein, colouring, and texture of the stone. The beauty of working with raw materials is that no two blocks are exactly the same, and the naturally occurring qualities and imperfections make each fireplace unique.
