Key Information
  • Project Name: Gloucester Garden
  • Client: Tamburlaine Gorst and Sandra Choi
  • Stone Used: Belgian Blue Limestone, Antique finish
  • Completed: June 2016

Tamburlaine Gorst (formerly Head of Design at Kenzo Homme in Paris) and his wife Sandra Choi, (Creative Director for luxury shoe designer Jimmy Choo) chose Belgian Blue limestone to create a unique table in the garden of their spectacular home in Gloucestershire.

The Belgian Blue table top, which measures 2200 x 900 x 45mm and weighs 300kg, is set atop two reclaimed sections of Falmouth Pier. With such distinguished support beneath it, the table top had to undergo a meticulous process to create an Antique finish in keeping with its surroundings.

The finished table fits perfectly in their exquisite country garden.

It has been a real pleasure to work with Trans-European Stone developing a blue limestone table top. Dirk in particular was very responsive to the brief and then very reactive in sampling until the desired finish was developed. I was very surprised at how quickly this happened once the go-ahead was given. The end result is a table top that looks beautifully authentically antique- just as we wanted it.
