Utilising all the beauty of polished concrete flooring, The Stone Carpet company has recently installed Stone Floor at the Innermost lighting studio in London’s Oxo Tower. The cement-based material creates smooth, elegant surfaces for walls and floors and can be coloured using Stone Floor pigments to achieve numerous different shades. Once polished, the floor or wall is sealed with stone oil to give it a silky, easily cleanable finish. Stone Floor can also be applied to walls, creating the opportunity of using the same finish throughout.
