Ceramique Internationale adds finishing touches to historic London pub

Ceramique Internationale has used its experience in pub and bar design to add the finishing touches to another historic London pub, after being selected to supply tiles to The Spotted Horse in Putney. 

Serving the public for more than 250 years, The Spotted Horse reopened in September 2017 following an extensive renovation, which saw the pub implement a new botanical theme throughout, as well as launching a one-of-a-kind rooftop bar, named The Juniper Terrace. 

Ceramique Internationale worked with award-winning leisure design experts Fusion by Design on the renovation, specifying tiles from some of Europe’s finest manufacturers, including Vives, Entruria and CE.SI.

Working towards Fusion by Design’s brief, Ceramique Internationale sourced Gorgo Grafito tiles from Spanish manufacturer Vives to create a geometric black-and-white diamond pattern along the Juniper Terrace’s bar front, while hexagonal tiles from Italian Manufacturer Entruria were selected for the indoor seating area. Entruria’s Blanco and Nero Hex tiles were chosen for the area, and were complemented with a white 150×75 mm rectangular border. 

For the bar apron, the design brief specified a black-and-white octagonal pattern with anti-slip and stain proof properties, which needed to be cost-effective. After extensive consultation, Ceramique Internationale suggested the Full Body range from Italian-based CE.SI, which not only matched the brief but, due to the range’s low porosity, there was no need to seal the tiles once fitted so they required less time and money to install. 

Cameron Fraser, Director of Ceramique Internationale, said: “We have done a lot of work in bars, hotels and spas, much of it with our friends at Fusion by Design, and as a consequence of all that experience we are able to offer advice and a range of options for most jobs. 

“The Spotted Horse project required us to draw on that experience in order to meet the brief for each area of the bar and also stay within the budget, but the results were worth it and everyone is thrilled with the finished look.”
