The art of design

Introducing La Fabrico, an unbelievably stylish and entrepreneurial tiling business.

La Fabrico’s showroom was unveiled in September last year with a VIP launch event that indicated exactly what the company is all about: style, taste and glamour. The ribbon was cut by Exeter Chiefs star Will Chudley and the local business community looked on as the doors to the showroom were opened, marking a significant addition to their ranks with this unbelievably contemporary and stylish company. Established by Paul Greenslade, Simon Pearce and Jon King, the trio have 25 years of experience in the tiling and stone industries between them, and have combined this experience to create La Fabrico. Paul tells us: “creating La Fabrico has been one of the most exciting yet difficult things I’ve done, but seeing the showroom now makes it all worth it.”

As you walk into the showroom, you’re greeted by beautiful displays that ooze sophistication and class. The cleverly arranged exhibits reveal the kind of effects you can achieve in your own home, allowing you to envision how your completed project could look with the help from the team at La Fabrico. Paul continues: “with so many years experience in the tiling industry, I really enjoy showcasing the different options available and look forward to sharing my knowledge with clients.” Paul’s experience shines through in the layout of the showroom, and it’s obvious that showcasing the creative possibilities available has been an integral part of the design and organisation of the space.

La Fabrico isn’t just a pretty face; the team also provides the ultimate customer experience. Whether you’re looking to revamp your bathroom, renovate your office so that it’s more classy and sophisticated, or get the perfect finish on your kitchen worktop, the in-house design team are always on hand to provide advice and ideas on all of your projects. Paul tells us: “one of the most rewarding things is to help guide our clients through the process and watch as their dreams become a reality. We’re here to help with all types of projects, from a new tiled kitchen to a full bathroom design.” As a testament to this, it’s possible to book a free interior design consultation thanks to the design hub, which has been set up specifically to provide professional advice from local architects and designers, giving you a chance to discuss your ideas with the experts.

Continuously on the hunt for current designs, the team have made sure to include a selection of trending looks this season including concrete, wood effect and natural stone tiles. Stocking Spanish brand Grespania, the quality of their products is unmistakable, however, the La Fabrico team pride themselves on being able to offer quality in design but at a fair price. Simon elaborates saying: “we provide superior quality tiles and innovative designs at competitive prices, you won’t find the same standard at a cheaper price anywhere else.”

The team will also help with the installation aspects of your project, and provide advice on tile aftercare. Showing that the service goes beyond simply making a sale, the team at La Fabrico genuinely want to ensure that their products will continue to look amazing in your home even after the deal has been made. So, head down and explore their boutique style showroom for yourself, and cast your eyes on the undeniably stylish displays that are bound to inspire you.
