Ceramique Internationale has used its experience in pub and bar design to add the finishing touches to an historic London pub, The Spotted Horse in Putney.
Ceramique Internationale worked with leisure design experts Fusion by Design on the renovation, specifying tiles from some of Europe’s finest manufacturers, including Vives, Entruria and CE.SI.
Gorgo Grafito tiles were sourced from Spanish manufacturer Vives to create a geometric black-and-white diamond pattern along the Juniper Terrace’s bar front, while hexagonal tiles from Italian Manufacturer Entruria were selected for the indoor seating area. Entruria’s Blanco and Nero Hex tiles were chosen for the area, and were complemented with a white 150 by 75 mm rectangular border.
For the bar apron, the design brief specified a black-and-white octagonal pattern with anti-slip and stain proof properties, which needed to be cost-effective. Ceramique Internationale suggested the Full Body range from Italian-based CE.SI, which not only matched the brief but, due to the range’s low porosity, there was no need to seal the tiles once fitted so they required less time and money to install.
