Decades ago, the founders of Lapicida were entranced by the beauty of natural stone. Since then, we have continued to be inspired by everything from captivating marble to clean limestone. This deep passion for geologically-formed surfaces has never waned.
Today, as one of the world’s leading stockists of high quality tile and stone, our minds are open to everything. We take wider inspiration from design and manufacturing innovations from across the globe to bring you everything from rare bespoke surfaces to full stock collections in natural stone, porcelain and handmade ceramics.
Our latest brochure Inspiration 2.0 edition demonstrates the ever-evolving journey of Lapicida. From our natural stone collections to contemporary porcelains chosen for their inherent practicality and durability. As well as a return to traditional ceramics, handmade using centuries-old techniques.

Reclaimed to Reinvented
Classical Italian marble slab with intricate veining to genuine antique reclaimed natural stone floors with centuries of fascinating provenance. These have been the bedrock of our success.
Times change, technology advances and tastes diversify. Technically perfect new-generation porcelains, beautifully imperfect handmade ceramics, revered geometric floors and award-winning mosaics have not only widened the Lapicida portfolio of surfaces, they have also proved extremely popular, generating great interest.
New Mediterranean Collection
Earthy and rich with colourful glazes, a new stock collection of handmade ceramic surfaces in harmonising styles brings a touch of Mediterranean charm to interiors. The range pays homage to traditional Mediterranean designs, perfectly illustrating the natural texture and glorious imperfections of glazed terracotta.
New Gramercy Park Collection
Inspired by the striking architecture of New York, Gramercy Park is a new full stock collection of natural marble slab, tiles and décors. A stunning curation featuring beautiful honed surfaces in plain colourways alongside geometric patterns. A favourite with designers, the collection offers variation in colour, vein and texture as well as the option to specify custom-made items such as skirtings, architraves, vanities and shower trays.
Huge advances in manufacturing technologies have enabled porcelain to replicate many natural surfaces including wood, marble and natural stone.
Porcelain Wood gives you all the authenticity of the natural material, including knots, grain and nuances but with all the ease and practicality of porcelain. Available in many different styles from planks to marquetry and parquet patterns. Perfect for high traffic areas such as kitchens, hallways, bathrooms and commercial applications.
Our Porcelain Marble collection perfectly emulates classic marbles including Carrara, Calacatta, Arabescato and Nero Marquina. Impactful large format porcelain marble slabs can also add drama like Massa D’oro Bookmatch.
Empire Heritage is a unique collection of Italian stone-effect porcelains that defy the keenest expert eye. Designed to replicate age-old limestone, the surface has an antique texture and a hand-chipped ‘heritage’ edge. It pairs perfectly with genuine antique natural stones such as reclaimed Barr de Montpellier.
Antibacterial for Life
Never has hygiene been under the spotlight more. Our Eternal Collection offers a generation of antibacterial porcelain surfaces that eradicates up to 99.9% of bacteria for life. Practical and hygienic, these tiles are designed for floors and walls, inside and out.
Force of Nature
Only nature is truly capable of creating such unique markings and inimitable charm. Whether veined marble, distressed limestone or textured sandstone, it is these characteristics formed over millions of years, which ensure natural stone still holds enduring appeal.
