Teltos Quartz supplied by Landford Stone Salisbury Wiltshire

 

 

 

Upon visiting Landford Stone it soon becomes apparent that this modest business situated in the beautiful Wiltshire countryside has ambitions far bigger than the granite and marble slabs that adorned the outdoor showroom.

As you gaze in wonder at their colossal library of stone you’d be forgiven in thinking that choosing the right stone would be anything but easy –  but as it turns out it is. Their incredible Teltos Select Range – which is their biggest seller in Quartz and backed by a 15 year warranty – has colours selected by kitchen companies from around the South. Teltos Quartz was introduced two years ago and has been more successful than Landford Stone could have ever imagined. It’s fast becoming a well known Quartz brand rivalling the monoliths of Silestone and Caesarstone. Working directly with the Teltos factory has also meant Landford Stone have been able to offer great price savings too.

New colours French Grey and Winter White give a softer look than the Graphite and White previously available from this Queen of Couture Linen, Bella Notte.  Hailing from San Francisco, these linens are spectacularly well made and will last a lifetime if given the correct treatment, moreover they are easy care so you can put away the spray starch and iron because these are meant to look relaxed and gently crumpled, inviting you to cosy up amongst the cushions.

In my constant search for beautiful and unusual fabrics I came across Inchyra Linens.  Of course I know there is nothing unusual in linens as such, but these linens have been given a treatment so they appear to be instantly aged, thus taking on the look and feel they would normally only achieve after years of wear and washing.

An appreciation by Jane McIntyre:-

As a designer I have always remained stoically faithful to my deep passion for all kinds of natural stone, be it for interior or exterior it is an ageless and elegant answer to so many spaces.  In the heady days of corian work tops and sinks I stubbornly used granite in all it’s myriad colours.  Prior to that, when the world was in love with pine kitchens, I took seconds of travertine  and marble to make my own designs for tops, bashing them up and sticking them into a mix of sand, colour pigment and tile adhesive – more off the wall than actual mosaic but a style that offered endless opportunities.  Latterly I have become more adventurous, creating whole bathrooms from marble and can only ever contemplate granite for any of my own kitchens.  So it’s with great delight that I can share with you the joys of working with that doyenne of stone and all it’s counterparts, Molly Fisher of Landford Stone.
