Terrazzo tile flooring adds style at top Covent Garden Restaurant
ACCORDING to the NATIONAL FEDERATION OF TERRAZZO MARBLE AND MOSAIC SPECIALISTS, the popularity and specification of terrazzo tiles is growing.
Federation Secretary Brian James comments, ‘a good example of the enduring popularity of terrazzo tile floors is here at Margot restaurant in the heart of Covent Garden.
NFTMMS member Quiligotti, the UK’s largest terrazzo tile manufacturer, was chosen to supply the tile flooring throughout the restaurant.
‘Our tiles are decorative yet hard wearing so can be installed across a range of projects including restaurants, airports, train stations and retail stores,’ explains Mike Moseley, Business Development Manager of Quiligotti. ‘Supplying tiles to meet the high quality feel our client expected for this project was creative, challenging and ultimately very successful.’
The Quil-X Large tiles chosen are fixed like a traditional ceramic tile on adhesive and are claimed to not need to be ground and polished on completion. The tiles are manufactured in a range of nine colours incorporating large marble aggregates with a contrasting matrix of smaller aggregates. They reportedly have been specially developed to meet the growing demand for Palladian style floors.
