Leading British stone engineer, Cumbria-based Burlington, has launched a sumptuous and exquisite range of square and strip tile mosaics to add further appeal to its constantly evolving range of interior and exterior stone products.

Showcased for the first time at the recent Grand Designs Live exhibition, the new natural stone mosaics – suitable for both internal and external use due to the technical characteristics of Burlington’s stones – represent the ultimate choice for the discerning and are an exciting new addition to Burlington’s wet room, bathroom and swimming pool product offering.

Produced from a quintessentially British stone quarried from the heart of the English Lake District, the new mosaics are suitable for use on walls, floors and as edge or feature detailing, and can be supplied in a range of single colours or mixed stones. In the former category are mosaic mats in honed blue / grey Kirkby, mid-green Broughton Moor and Baycliff Lord limestone.

For increased contrast, Burlington has also launched three multi-mix square tile mosaics, one featuring its green stones, the second being produced using a combination blue/ grey, silver and green natural stones, and a third which is a mix of Burlington Baycliff Lord and Caulfeild limestones – the latter featuring both a honed and flamed finish. Not only are they suitable for use over expansive areas, they create a dramatic effect when used within interior schemes that feature wide format wall and floor tiles.

The strip tile mosaics, available in a similar colour combination to the square tile counterparts, feature a mix of 4in, 6in and 8in long x 1in wide pieces of natural stone. Available as 300mm x 300mm mats, the mosaics are quick and easy to install, and as with all of Burlington’s stone products they require very little maintenance. Whilst Burlington intends mosaics to form part of its off-the-shelf product offering, they are currently only available made to order.

As Burlington Stone’s sales and marketing director, Nick Williams comments: "Everyone at Burlington is extremely excited about the new mosaics and we are optimistic they will be widely specified by both designers and home owners. As with all of our natural stone products, which emanate from a truly and quintessentially British stone source that was laid down in the Lake District millions of years ago, their outstanding aesthetic properties are matched by the mosaics performance technically."

He added: "Burlington has taken great strides over the last two years to increase the awareness of Burlington Stone and its product offering to a wider but discerning public audience and it appears to be paying dividends. We now have a greater and more relevant interior and exterior product offering and this is beginning to strike an accord for its relevance and suitability to today’s spectrum of interior design styles."

Priding itself on developing sumptuous and leading-edge products manufactured using craftsmanship skills and the finest natural stone source in the world, Burlington is your guarantee when it comes to delivering a look and finish that will be enjoyed for years to come.

Fusing perfectly with today’s spectrum of interior design styles, Burlington’s unrivalled palette of all British natural stones, finishes and tile format serve to present a myriad of creative opportunities irrespective of space. From compact areas to whole room zones, Burlington’s stone represents the perfect solution for creating an oasis of tranquility.

Burlington’s continued attendance at Grand Designs Live serves to give design professionals, consumers and the media the chance to become acquainted with the ultimate in luxurious British natural stone products, engineered from one of the world’s richest sources of stone.

Prized by interior designers, architects, specifiers, developers and discerning homeowners the world over, Burlington Stone combines craftsmanship skills with environmentally sensitive extraction processes and modern production techniques to create a stunning product array shaped from Lakeland stone deposits laid down over 450 million years ago.

Burlington engineers products using stone that is sympathetically teased out of the ground from six quarries to offer a unique mix of stones, together with two limestones.

Adding to the romance of each stone’s rich colouring are contrasting veins and markings that emphasise its natural origin, whilst a range of smooth and textured finishes facilitate use in wet conditions.

Alongside the character and natural beauty inherent within Burlington’s stone, it is a material that is extremely practical, hard wearing and durable. Indeed natural stone is renowned for its outstanding technical properties, whilst being easy to clean and maintain.
