Coverham Abbey Table

“The stone, gold and oak work so perfectly.”

We were briefed by the client to provide a table to stand in the entrance hall at Coverham Abbey House which retains monastic features of the deconsecrated 13th century premonstratensian Coverham Abbey. The materials needed to sensitively reflect the building and it’s history. 

Brittanicus Stone quarried and supplied the marble for this table – a block of marble which was specially quarried, sliced and then carefully selected by us for the table top.
