People often have a perception that Interior Design is all rugs and cushions, but the finishing touches really are just that and often our projects involve much more exciting aspects. This is a 65 million year old fossil that we installed last year for a lovely client in West London. The fossil has formed over a huge leaf and 5 fish, which you can feel the bones of if you run your finger over the stone.
Standing at 7ft tall and over 8ft at it’s widest point, finding a suitable position in the house was no mean feat. After removing the front door and door frame, it took a team of several steady handed men to move the piece into place.
We built out this wall specially to house the fossil and created a mahogany plinth for it to sit on. The wall is reinforced and so most of the weight is taken on the wall. It’s an absolute showpiece and looks simply stunning in our client’s home.
