Wow Your Clients With London Stone’s Improved Showroom Displays

Wow Your Clients With London Stone’s Improved Showroom Displays – we’ve been busy making improvements – find out more!

We may be biased but, as Customer Experience Director Chris Durnford says, “I think we have the best range of showrooms out there.” Lately, though, they’ve needed a little improvement.

This is because stock changes, lines are discontinued, and new paving is introduced into our range. Every year we replace discontinued paving with new, meaning that some of the displays were becoming less coherent. As we prioritise customer service over anything else; that couldn’t continue. read more

A Perennially Modern Touch At RHS Chelsea 2019

A Perennially Modern Touch At RHS Chelsea 2019 – read more about our involvement in the wonderful Perennial Lifeline garden at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2019

How do you represent a lifeline? This was one of the questions facing designers Duncan Cargill and Colm Joseph, who collaborated on the Perennial Lifeline Garden in what was the first RHS Chelsea appearance for them both.

Their design was chosen after a competition, run jointly by Perennial and the London College of Garden Design, found it captured the spirit of Roy Strong’s Laskett Gardens, bequeathed to Perennial in 2015, while celebrating Perennial’s position at the heart of the horticultural world. read more

Classic Celebrations At RHS Chelsea 2019 – read more about our involvement with this year’s show, and learn a little more about the materials we have on display at this year’s show.

You know a garden at RHS Chelsea is particularly special when, on the opening day, the BBC spend considerably more time interviewing the designer than expected. Schedules were thrown out left and right as the cameras roamed the Greenfingers Garden upstairs and down.

Sandstone Favourites From Our Kent Showroom’s New Manager

Sandstone Favourites From Our Kent Showroom’s New Manager – we take a look at some of the lesser-known sandstone products in the London Stone range

If you’ve been a regular visitor to Knockholt over the years, you’ll probably remember Alin. This is where he started his days as a Sales Advisor, before moving up to Trade Counter Manager at our Distribution Centre at Langley.

Now, three years later, he’s back as Showroom Manager and relishing the contrast. “In the Showroom, I spend a lot more time with people, and the people that tend to come are ones that don’t know a lot about stone, which is where I can step in. It’s good to be able to offer people advice.” read more

Two New Sandstone Paving Products in the London Stone Stable!

One of the most enjoyable parts of our business is the alchemy that happens in our contact with designers and landscapers. They challenge us with the latest ideas and trends and we chew our pencil stubs and then go out and source the colour and type of stone that’s being demanded.

It’s deeply satisfying to find what someone wants, and this month we’re launching six new pavings, plus an exciting range of Porcelain products, in response to requests we’ve received. No, you can’t hear about them all at once (what do you think we are, made of words?) but, to start us off with a bang, here are two new additions to our range of sandstone paving. read more
