De Ferranti to bring beauty of rock crystal to Decorex


One of this year's must-see stands will be from tile specialist De Ferranti. The company will be displaying a four tonne, two metre long piece of rock crystal, which has been specially sourced for its purity and then polished to give it a dazzling finish, before being offered for sale. Thanks to its size, whoever buys it will be able to carve it into any shape or object they desire, working alongside De Ferranti's stone master, Nigel Fenwick.

‘Rock crystal pieces of this size and beauty are extremely difficult to source,’ explains Alvaro De Ferranti. ‘So our rock crystal represents a very special opportunity for a high-end customer to have a unique architectural element in their home – whatever this may be.'

De Ferranti will also be raising funds for its favourite cause, the Royal Marsden hospital, inviting visitors to the stand to donate in return for a semi-precious love heart. The company will also be giving a percentage of the sale of the rock crystal to the cancer charity.
