About Us

A Yorkshire company with an international reputation, Lapicida work with top architects and designers as well as individual customers all over the world. A world-class specialist in luxury surfaces, Lapicida combines natural stone products, new-generation manmade materials and unique bespoke services with traditional masonry skills and high-tech capabilities. Lapicida is also a renowned specialist in reclaimed stone and terracotta, reengineering antique surfaces for 21st century use.

They operate from an extraordinary three-acre showroom, garden and workshop complex in Knaresborough. The perfect place to seek inspiration, the showroom displays hundreds of products, indoors and out whilst their workshops house traditional artisan stonemasons, working alongside technicians who operate the most advanced scanning and automated stone-working equipment in Europe. It is this combination of traditional stonemasonry and state-of-the-art product which sets Lapicida apart, enabling them to offer both natural stone products, new-generation porcelain and handmade ceramic tiles for virtually any situation. Lapicida maintains large stocks in their Yorkshire warehouses for fast delivery.

From historic reclaimed floors to custom-made elements for indoors and out, Lapicida’s bespoke capabilities are matchless. They transform stone into anything from bas relief tiles to cantilevered staircases, balustrades, full-scale statuary, book-matched panels, custom-designed inlays and intricate mosaics. This is bespoke British craftsmanship at its very highest level.

Using a combination of advanced technology and craft skills, Lapicida also makes a wide range of objects from stone and marble baths, statuary, tables and basins to freestanding decorative pieces.

Sitting alongside their collection of beautiful surfaces is ORNAMENTI - a curated collection of fine garden ornaments from frost-resistant terracotta and robust zinc planters, via unique garden furniture and armillary sphere sundials, to hand-carved fountains and obelisks.

Their product collaborations with leading designers challenge the technical boundaries of stone design and manufacturing. Working towards carbon neutrality, Lapicida collaborates with its suppliers to source responsibly and recycles waste stone.
