There is an explosion of interest in Scagliola, and Stone Age Designs is most often asked, “What is Scagliola? Scagliola, http://www.stoneagedesigns.net/scagliola.html, dates back to the 15th Century when it was first created by Italian Monks near the Italian city of Capri. Creating Scagliola Stone is a technique of blending and inlaying marble powders and pigments producing a marble-like surface that resembles a painting while the designs can range from classic to modern.
Scagliola is used to enhance the warmth and beauty of the home with a special focus on Stone Fireplace Mantels, and Stone Kitchen Hoods, http://www.stoneagedesigns.net/kitchen . Stone kitchen hoods like the Provence, http://www.stoneagedesigns.net/kitchen/provence-grape.html, and cast stone accents such as Scagliola Arches, Columns, Pedestals, and walls of Scagliola Stone in homes and offices across the U.S.
The creation of Scagliola Stone Fireplace mantels, stove hoods ad accents is a precise system of blending and layering that is a highly guarded secret process. Thierry Francois has developed the Scagliola Stone of Stone Age Designs, and designers covet his secret Scagliola recipe. This secret recipe is exclusive to Stone Age Designs. Francois has developed new techniques for blending more than crushed marble, adding limestone and travertine to produce custom stone fireplace mantels, and as well as custom stone kitchen hoods, and cast stone kitchen hoods that are not nearly as costly as hand-carved stone.
The Scagliola of Stone Age Designs is easy to use, and easy to install in the home, or in the office, and the design possibilities are limited only to the imagination. Stone Age Designs’ Scagliola has the look and feel of hand-carved quarry stones and the elegance of the Italian Renaissance.
