LAPICIDA WINS TWO AWARDS AT INTERNATIONAL TRADE SHOW
SEPTEMBER 27TH 2012
Stone specialist Lapicida has won two prestigious awards at the London design showcase, Decorex International, which brings together design professionals from all over the world.

Exhibiting at Decorex for the first time, and never a company to do anything by halves, Lapicida built an extraordinary stand fronted by seven towering columns, behind which stone walls, floors and architectural elements were displayed in a series of dramatic sets.  Recognition came not just from the thousands of visitors to the stand but also in two key awards from Decorex’s organisers who gave Lapicida both the ‘Best New Exhibitor’ and ‘The World of Interiors Award for Excellence.’

The Decorex judging team comprised high-profile opinion-formers; leading design journalist Lucia van der Post, interior designer Bill Bennette and editor of Homes & Gardens magazine Deborah Barker.  Jason Cherrington, founder and managing director of Lapicida commented, "We are delighted to have received not one but two accolades from such an influential group of design insiders.  As first time exhibitors, we wanted to make a big impact at Decorex, showing off both our traditional stone working skills and the technologies we use to create our collections and our bespoke work.” 

Lapicida works with leading architects, designers and private clients all over the world.  Its Head Office, showroom and workshop complex in Harrogate is a 20,000 sq ft temple to stone which has won awards in its own right.  The floors and walls, tiles, murals and garden paving forming a backdrop for baths, basins, sculptures and complex architectural features. Adjacent workshops house both Lapicida’s traditional artisans and technicians operating the most advanced scanning and automated stone-working equipment in Europe.
Lapicida’s recently opened London flagship store at 533 Kings Road, Chelsea, SW10 has also been shortlisted in the 2012 FX International Interior Design Awards.
