One minute after I stepped into the festive halls of the Lapicida showroom in London, I had already learned something: Lapicida is Latin and mean stone cutter. Makes sense in a showroom full of amazing stones. Lapicida is the stone specialist for amazing interior and exterior solutions. And moreover: One of our cool BlogTour London sponsors.
Up to my Lapicida visit I have never given too much thought to stone in interiors. I have always loved a nice antique stone floor in country style kitchens. But the assortment at Lapicida stunned me: reclaimed stone from Italy, France, even 1000 years old stones from Bethlehem. At certain points I felt like I should float and not step on those precious antiques. But I was reassured: these stones are made for walking!
Thank you Lapicida for being a great sponsor and host in London. If you want to know more, find them on Facebook and Twitter.
What do you think of antique stones in interiors?

I loved being part of this tour and really enjoyed listening to James, who knew everything there is to know about stones for interiors and reminded me of a passionate storyteller. They are truly at the top of their game!
My favourite was the reclaimed stones.
How very apt that both you and I are clicking away with our cameras:)
I LOVE the photo you took of the male sculpture but I also LOVE that photo of you (moody and sexy), courtesy of ‘moi’. Thanks for the credit.
I think I need another shooting with you, Tina:-))
Love the photography and little angles you’ve discovered – it was a real pleasure to have you on this trip
Oh thank you Veronika! I was more than honoured to be among such great bloggers! Thanks again!!!
I’m a huge fan of stone floors and stone in general! They give a rustic and authentic sense to every house!
Lovely photos, next time you’re in London we have to meet up!
I love stone floor and that one with the geometric graphic pattern is my absolute favourite: muted in colors but bold in pattern!
I would have liked to see that with my own eyes. Thanks for sharing these. I’m a huge fan of stone in general. Mixing stone and wood is my idea of a stylish home.
I have to add that I love that first tile you posted, the white one with the grey and black pattern. I would like to have just one and use it as a kitchenware.
I wanted to sneak out a few of those beautiful tiles myself:-)) They really have an amazing selection, Lisa!
