Worktops for a gong

Kenyan Blackwood Marble gorgeousness produced by WorktopEnvy.com for our commercial partners

WHETHER it’s white quartz stone worktops or black granite in a residential kitchen, or a high-end commercial project, WorktopEnvy loves to deliver. So today we’re enormously proud to announce that our superior stone-work is up for TWO gongs at the prestigious Restaurant and Bar Design Awards 2013.  It’s not every day that one enjoys a champagne moment, but it’s easy to see why the inverted waterfall edge-detail of this expansive bar in the Luggage Room at London’s Grosvenor Square Marriott Hotel caught the RABD judges’ attention. And now we’re on a shortlist of just seven to win the Best Restaurant or Bar in a Hotel category. Crafted by our expert masons from Kenyan Blackwood marble, this five-tiered worktop is now being enjoyed by the discerning denizens of one of the capital’s hottest nightspots. Each layer, bonded precisely together, has a delicate rounded bull-nosed edge finish to create a functional piece of art. Our chairman William Evans worked alongside one of the best design outfits in the world, Fabled Studio, to produce this fabulous example of our trade. He said: “It’s great to be nominated but the truth is it was just another day’s work for us. We apply exactly the same standards of quality and attention-to-detail in every project we take on. Most of all I’m delighted for the stonemasons on my factory floor and the fitting teams who worked through the night to complete this project for Fabled Studio. Like us, Fabled Studio has high expectations of its work and insists its contractors exercise the same level of craft and care. They were a delight to work with.” The full Luggage Room project involved far more than simply making this beautiful bar. We also fabricated and installed a truly stunning art-deco-style fireplace and staircase and laid metre after metre of Turkish Lilac marble flooring, book-matched to radiate natural symmetry using techniques preferred by the finest violin makers. Our work has also helped another of our valued clients onto the Awards’ shortlist, this time in London’s Best Multiple Restaurant category.

And wish us luck!

Star Galaxy granite worktops

Posted on: No Comments

large star galaxy granite island in surrey home by worktopenvy.com
THIS Star Galaxy
 black granite island demonstrates beautifully the light-giving qualities of  high-gloss dark natural stone worktops. Positioned on hardy pale oak cabinets – lovingly fashioned by quality kitcheneers Amazing SpacesStar Galaxy’s intense polish reflects this family space like a mirror. When it comes to black worktops situated, like these ones, under a strong natural light source, we’ll always recommend granite over engineered quartz. That’s because igneous granite, formed of molten magma millions of years ago, is untroubled by Ultraviolet (UV), while the pigments that make quartz black can degrade under UV, causing a blanching effect over time. There’s also nothing that quite rivals the high polish of granite types like Star Galaxy, whose glassy finish and glinting flecks of bronzite look exactly as the name suggests they might – heavenly. Engineered quartz worktops, of course, are both doggedly durable and vividly versatile in their own right, but for the deepest lustre granite will always be king. Here WorktopEnvy’s skilled masons used clever low-visual-impact mitred jointing to make the box step – a brilliantly effective way to separate worktop areas. We also dreamt up some smartly discreet offset joints to integrate two hefty support pillars into this ambitious four-metre granite work surface design. The shaped hob splash-back completes a beautifully clean, natural look in this modern Surrey kitchen.  Well-sourced, professionally fabricated and fitted granite worktops will make a good kitchen great – and still look pristine in 20 years’ time (just follow our top tips on granite care folks!).
