Throughout history architectural elements such as fountains, fireplace mantels and columns have been the essential components of luxurious villas, chateaux and homes around the world. Today there is a resurgence of these refined “finishing touches” as designers, architects and builders are being asked by clients to find ways to make their homes and businesses more personalized to better reflect their lifestyles and passions.
Barbara Tattersfield Design creates elegant Old World styled stone furnishings for both interior and exterior use exclusively to each client’s specifications. Our natural stone appointments include fireplaces, columns, fountains, niches, door surrounds and much more. Every appointment is carefully designed and hand-carved in intricate detail by our skilled craftsmen using advanced technology combined with age-old techniques. This blend of old and new ensures precise measurements, durability, timeless beauty and a look uniquely suited to each individual.
True architectural beauty and splendor begins with a vision and evolves as all elements are created in continuity to the particular design style. Whether influenced by a Renaissance, Tuscan or other classic architectural theme, there is nothing more inspiring than exquisitely carved stone – on a grand scale or elegantly understated. Not only does it exude a state of permanence but the effect on a home or estate can truly be one of transformation from a beautiful home to a truly distinctive beauty to behold by all.
