In a market dominated by mass production and disposability, discerning customers turn to us for the antidote:


Top-quality craftsmanship, functionality, timeless grace,

individual attention and reliability.

Faux painted surfaces spec-faux-column-brown




Faux painted columns simulating marble (many color choices!) will transform your space dramatically.

Chose a barrel, straight or fluted column. Many sizes available.

Onyx simulation. Using faux painted Acrylic, almost any color can be replicated.


Why use Faux paint over original materials?
Aside from cost consideration (about 30% of "the real thing") the more important points are a much wider range of color options, color matching capabilities and control of striation direction.


Each of the above tasks individually could likelybe handled by a local wood shop metal worker or painter, however shops that are able to turn out a combination or all of the above are very rare, we are one of them.  


As an example, a specialty wood shop certainlycan produce fantastic furniture but may not be able to faux paint, add backlit sections or have the capability of gilding. By the same token an onyx slab supplier will not make furniture, neither will a faux painter. You get the idea.


Due to the sometimes very challenging nature of backlit projects – our main staple – it is at times required to incorporate features as outlined above, sometimes all of them.
Therefore our metal and wood shops are equipped with state-of-the-art equipment and staffed with experienced artisans and craftsmen who can turn out pieces of unmatched sophistication and functionality.



  We believe in listening to our clients and creating tailored solutions to individual requirements, be it adapting proportions to fit an awkward space, matching a design color, hand-painting a unique pattern or back-lighting an entire inlay stone wall.

We leave the ordinary to mass producers. Call us if you have a special request.

Typical Clientele:
Casinos, Yacht Builders, Designers & Builders targeting the high end Residential and Commercial markets.
