Yorkshire firm Lapicida unveils natural range

Montpellier Porcelain from Lapicida – offering the beauty of antique stone

Very much on-trend, Lapicida’s Montpellier porcelain range takes its cue from the antique stone of the Montpellier region of Southern France

Increasingly people are looking to introduce beautiful natural materials into their home – think wood, marble, stone, or metal to get the latest designer looks in your hallway, bathroom, kitchen or living room.

But the practicalities of using natural materials can sometimes be challenging in terms of maintenance, access, weight and fixing. For this reason, alongside their premium stone and marble, Knaresborough-based Lapicida also offer brilliant ‘get the look’ alternatives in their new-generation Italian porcelains. Prices are extremely reasonable, letting decorating budgets stretch further.

Advancing technology and production techniques have transformed porcelain into a true chameleon. Nowadays it can look – and feel – like anything from limestone to natural timber, concrete, marble – even antique stone or wood.

Get back to nature with Montpellier Porcelain from Lapicida – offering the beauty of antique stone

Very much on-trend, Lapicida’s Montpellier porcelain range takes its cue from the antique stone of the Montpellier region of Southern France. Famous for its ancient limestone quarries, the area is renowned for producing some of the most magnificent natural stone tiles in the world, in an array of warm neutrals.

The Montpellier collection captures the authenticity of genuine antique stone but with all the practicalities and ease of porcelain. Thinner, more stable and more durable than real stone, it’s an ideal surface for high traffic areas including kitchens, dining rooms, hallways and bathrooms.

With a charming simplicity, the collection is highly versatile, and can be used in both classic and contemporary settings, bringing a clean look to any scheme. Whether are you looking to achieve a more modern, urban aesthetic or opting for a rustic, reclaimed look, Montpellier has something for everyone. Featuring several complementary colourways, as well as a range of finishes and sizes, the collection is the ideal choice for adding visual interest to interiors. Tiles can be combined to create various patterns, including Coursed, Opus or with Octagon inserts, to achieve a more decorative feel.

Alongside the core offering, consisting of flag, exterior flag and brick style tiles, the collection now includes supplementary items including skirtings, edgings, inserts, mosaics and step treads, meaning you can now get the full ‘Montpellier look’. The core range is available from stock for quick delivery whilst the supplementary items are available to order.
