  1. Four Eye-Catching Design Trends For Hospitality Venues

    Leave a Comment

    If you’re redesigning the communal spaces in a restaurant, hotel or the like, then you’ll need to be up to date with the latest design trends for hospitality venues. Working the latest trends into your designs will not only wow your clients, but will also ensure that the visitors are asking about the people that put the interiors together. Thankfully, we’ve got a handle on all the latest trends so that you don’t have to.


    Big and bold design is back in a big way. Subtle colours and hide-behind walls have been abandoned across the hospitality industry, and we’ve seen a marked rise in the demand for highly detailed, eye-catching designs. Take Feya, who combined Gold Stratos marble with busy walls and archways to create intrigue and interest across every wall of the bar and restaurant – even combining built structures with real foliage for maximum impact.

    Biophilic Design

    After what is now nearly two years where we’ve seen more of our own walls than anything else, we’ve seen a real return of designs inspired by flowers and nature. At The Ivy, in Manchester, geometric flowers across the furniture are coupled with walls featuring all manner of birds, all united with a distinct Asian style which reflects the cuisine available. Biophilic design has always been popular, but it would be foolish not to note the return of this design trend for hospitality venues.

    At Versital, we know all about marble, and we were delighted to provide the marble used to decorate the most luxurious nail salon in the world, the townhouse at Harrods. The townhouse is decked out in Autumn Onyx, which features burnt orange veins running through cream marble, and was completely custom supplied by Versital.

    Equally stunning is the Busy Carrata marble designed for The Red Lion in Oxford, which helped us – in collaboration with JMDA and BOBO1325 – to transform a country pub into a modern, sleek bar. The marble was also perfectly suitable for the washrooms, as it is durable & easy to clean, as well as being protected by SteriTouch anti-bacterial technology.

    Intricate & Edge Details

    With the return of maximalism, it will be no surprise to you that intricate edges are another one of the returning design trends for hospitality this year. In times where design has favoured minimal looks, edges are often left bland-  but they are a superb opportunity to add flourishes and flair. Darley’s in Derby did just that, and they took advantage of the custom cut that Versital is able to offer to achieve stunning edges across their vanity tops. Quite simply, there are no barriers to creativity when you work with Versital.

  2. Stunning Marble Tops: Blossom & Wild

    Leave a Comment

    At Versital, we are passionate about marble tops. We think everything looks better finished in cultured marble – and, by the looks of it, so do the team at Blossom and Wild.

    Situated in the Hertfordshire haven of Berkhamsted, Blossom and Wild is a beautiful coffee shop which sits on a picturesque high street where both footfall and competition are high. Standing out with a dazzling interior is absolutely crucial, and Blossom and Wild have certainly raised the bar.

    Creating a Dream

    Madison, the owner of the ambitious coffee shop, said “I have always had a passion for baking & all things pretty so combined the two to create my dream, which I hoped other people would also feel excited about! I wanted to create an ethereal place to eat beautiful cakes and delicious afternoon teas and to indulge with friends and family in a unique environment from the usual! The metallic marble from Versital was the perfect fit to create my dream décor.”

    Aspirational Venue

    Blossom and Wild is more than just a coffee shop – they also host events offering a popular Afternoon Tea which caters to a huge variety of dietary requirements. It is an aspirational venue in which visitors can spend an entire afternoon.

    This decor adds to the grandeur of the venue without overpowering the bright, inviting walls. 

    Metallic Marble Copper Stratos

    For an added touch of glamour, Madison chose the exclusive finish Copper Stratos from the Metallic Marble range. These finishes have the beauty of a realistic marble pattern with an extra element of metallic sparkle in the veining. This finish was the perfect option to complement the rest of the venue’s decor.

    Marble Tops with Added Protection from SteriTouch

    Not only are the marble tops beautiful to look at, but they are also protected by SteriTouch anti-microbial technology. As the cafe looks to open up to even more customers in the post-regulation world, this gives peace of mind to both staff and customers.

    Gemma Stockberger, Director of Versital UK, commented “There is nothing we love more than seeing Versital marble tops as part of a beautiful setting. Madison’s passion and enthusiasm were clear from the get-go! We loved helping create her vision, and how she has combined beautiful lighting, paper and of course our tops for a really opulent feeling venue. 

    Versital is often used in large projects and rollouts, but there is something very special about working with independent clients like Madison”.

    Finalist in the Muddy Stilettos Awards

    We are not the only ones who think this is a show-stopping and award-worthy venue. They are also in the finals for the best coffee shop in Herts and Beds for the Muddy Stilettos awards for their beautiful venue and mouth-watering menu. 

    Any coffee shop looking to offer the indulgent experience that Blossom and Wild have perfected could take inspiration from the attention to detail paid by Madison & the team, and it is this understanding about how the environment impacts the customer experience that will carry the independent boutique far.

    Easy to clean and gorgeous to look at, the marble tops in Blossom and Wild fulfil every possible design need. Take a look at the full range of marble tops offered by Versital, or contact us directly at sales@versital.co.uk or 01204 380780.
