Versital Marble Tops & Panels specified in Chaophraya
Versital Marble Bar Tops specified in Chaophraya Newcastle’s Thai Transformation
Versital is delighted to have been specified in Chaophraya, a contemporary Thai restaurant in Newcastle. The restaurant has recently undergone a £1.55 million transformation that offers an impressive blend of contemporary Thai cuisine in unique surroundings.
Stunning Marble Bar Top
The restaurant, based in Eldon Square near Grey’s Monument, offers modern Thai dishes and authentic surroundings with items sourced from Thailand on display. Chaophraya Business Manager, Simon Wright says:
Practical Solution for Delicious but Messy Food
“While it is indeed delicious, Thai food can be messy and therefore prone to staining. We needed a practical solution for our new restaurant that would project an opulent and authentic look, while still being fit for purpose and keep looking as good as new for a long time. Versital’s bespoke faux marble means we now have the best of both worlds for our restaurant – a beautiful, premium marble bar and ‘pass’, without the drawbacks of the naturally porous material.”
Versital’s 100% non-porous stone resin panels, bar tops and table tops are made to measure allowing you to specify the exact shape and size required. They are available in over 90 colours and finishes such as marble, granite, sparkle and high gloss.
“There are so many benefits of opting for cultured marble within the hospitality environment. Not only is it stain proof, non-porous and easy to clean, it can also designed to a completely bespoke dimensions, shapes and sizes. Faux marble has been known to last for more than 30 years in the restaurant environment. We are delighted with the final result for Chaophraya.”

WORKING IN PARTNERSHIP WITH DESIGNERS
As well as manufacturing to design specification we are also on hand to offer advice to designers to help create the vision they have whilst being a practical real-world solution. We often have designers who approach us with a brief and initial design who may need advice making it work in practice.Gemma Stockberger, Director
We were able to offer our expertise in creating a beautiful custom drop edge detail. It really helps to work alongside experienced designers.
Our aim is to take the stress away from the designer and end client and work alongside other trades to get a good end result.
