Polished Plaster London
Venetian Interiors London are specialists in the installation of high-end polish plaster finishes. Whilst polished plaster techniques have evolved, our skilled installers ensure that our work remains true to the principles of original Italian plaster finishes.
The history of Italian polished plaster dates back over 2,000 years with depictions of colourful, polished plasterwork appearing in the Discourses of Vitruvius. Vitruvius is widely acknowledged to have been one of the greatest architects of ancient Rome. The application of polished Italian plaster has been refined and perfected since Vitruvius’s time but the principles of colour, texture and quality of finish have remained.
The combination of both quality of product and quality of finish give polished plaster from Venetian Interiors London its distinctive look and hardness. One of the earliest types of Italian polished plaster was Marmorino Stucco, this has more recently become more commonly known as Venetian plaster.
