Artorius Faber creates bespoke natural stone flooring, paving and internal architecture. Our passion for the very fabric of our landscape has been borne out of over 30 years’ experience working with and understanding stone.
We make stone sing. You could call us virtuosos of stone. Whether your client favours a contemporary pop vibe, enduring hard rock or the sophistication of something more classical, our compositions accent the natural attributes of every stone to best suit each individual project we work on.
British stone is our passion but our knowledge and expertise also covers stones from around the world. The use of stone knows no bounds - from cobbled courtyards to the finest staircases. Its timeless appeal, variety of colour and texture combined with the finishing possibilities give us limitless scope for creativity in all kinds of projects.
We work with architects, interior and landscape designers on residential, commercial and urban projects of all sizes and requirements, offering project support advice and services from sourcing stone through to installation.
Whether matching existing stone flooring or paving - particularly for conservation and restoration projects – creating bespoke finishes or even hunting down and sourcing specific stones that haven’t been quarried for some time, it’s all second nature to us. Being in complete control of the entire process from sourcing the stone through manufacturing and finishing, to final installation is an important benefit for our customers as it makes a project easier to manage and minimises the risk of delays.
From an initial site visit and consultation we prepare project specific samples to select from. Once the stone and finish are agreed, detailed drawings and renders are produced to bring the vision to life and provide the blueprint to follow.
Everything we do is bespoke and therefore made to order, created especially to suit each and every project we work on.
Artorius Faber is an independent, family-run business. The company may be a relative newcomer having been founded in 2011 but within it lies over 25 years’ experience across the generations. Our family founded Artisans of Devizes, pioneers of stone flooring in the 90s. As interest in indigenous stones grew and provenance became a byword for quality in consumers’ eyes, our desire to take a different approach and specialise in bespoke British stone led to a split.
We dared to be different by offering a complete service from sourcing stone through to finished product and bought all the manufacturing operations of Artisans of Devizes. Rapid expansion necessitated increased production capabilities and in 2012 the manufacturing operation was transferred to a purpose built site in Yeovil, Somerset.
Today Artorius Faber has its own quarry in Dorset, production capabilities to process any stone and a myriad of finishes and options to choose from including stones from farther afield than the British Isles.
Our energy and enthusiasm for working with stone is evident in the service we deliver to our clients. No two projects are the same and one size certainly doesn’t fit all, which keeps us on our toes! As everything we do is bespoke, by working with Artorius Faber you will give your clients a floor like no other.
