Quartzite Kitchen & Marble Fireplace

This client wanted a Quartzite Kitchen and a Marble Fireplace for a high end residential project in London

Quartz Kitchen Surfaces & Statement Island

Project: Quartzite Kitchen & Marble Fireplace for a high-end residential project

Project duration: 10 months from initial consultation to installation

Location: London

Client: Novo Design

Why were we approached?

Novo Design are a driven and enthusiastic design company who specialise in the residential and hospitality sectors. They approached us as they were looking for a skilled and knowledgeable stone fabrication company who could provide a complete service for their bespoke projects.

We arranged a viewing at Stone World London for our client so that they could take the time to look at all their options and choose suitable materials for the kitchen and fireplace.

What stone did they choose?

We advised on the type, size and suitability of each material preference. The client looked at a variety of different slabs and chose specific ones that had the colour and patterning desired. They decided on 20mm and 30mm Dover White Quartzite for the kitchen surfaces and Arabescato 20mm Corchia marble for the fireplace. We reserved 8 slabs for these projects.

What was the design process?

The design consultation then continued for the island mitred edge waterfall panels, utility room worktops, the splashback, and the fireplace design. Our lead designer submitted several proposed drawings, in order to achieve the exact specification required. Collaboration on the art deco style fireplace resulted in a beautiful focal point for the lounge.

Were any special skills needed?

The stonemason’s skill came into play when working with this unique material, involving vein matching the Dover Quartzite on the waterfall panels and creating an overall stunning aesthetic.

The fabrication was completed within a tight time frame, and all stone expertly fitted in 2 days. Novo then completed the finishing touches, ready for their client to move into this beautiful home for Christmas.

"There’s not much that beats the beauty of natural stone and we are so lucky to be supported by Stella and her team at Marble2Marvel for all our ‘little bit special’ stone needs. What these guys can’t do with stone isn’t worth doing. Fire places to bar tops, to kitchen islands of monster scale, bathroom vanities, waitress stations, you name it they can do it. Thank you for your patience with us and help bringing our visions to life. We look forward to an exciting year ahead and lots more beautiful creations!"
