Specialist stone and tile consultancy, paolo.interiors, has recently contributed to the refurbishment of renowned Savile Row restaurant, Sartoria.

Working under the commission of the acclaimed interior designer, David d’Almada, at Sagrada, the team meticulously sourced and supplied the elegant and decadent ‘Golden Spider’ marble that takes centre stage in the new bar area.

This striking marble, with a bright white background and cobweb of golden threads, can also be found as wall cladding and counters in the salad bar and the waiter stations. Traditional ‘Bianco Carrara’ marble, the material of choice of sculptures for hundreds of years from Michelangelo to Ai Wei Wei, is fitted in the exquisite restrooms.

Inspired by the Saville Row location and Sartoria’s Italian heritage, d’Almada has encapsulated the glamour and romance of 20th century Italy through a delightful palette and a contrast of striking materials.

As past collaborators to d’Almada’s work, the paolo.interiors team took great pride in contributing towards bringing to life the designer’s vision for the gourmet restaurant through beautiful marble finishes.

Within two months of opening, the new marble bar area has already found fame as the best location in London for a morning cappuccino and “biscotti”, or for an evening cocktail and “ciccheti”. The vibrant décor creates the perfect environment to enjoy the Italian feasts led by Chef Patron Francesco Mazzei.
