Dining room entrance floor

We were commissioned by Mr. Matrouk to make the floor to the entrance of his drawing room and to make a matching border for another room. The floor had a separate border and interior pieces. The design for the same was provided by Mr. Matrouk's architect and designer, Mr. John Twiss and Ms. K.N. Al-Wahbi
The entire floor of the first room is complete. It was made of 31 separate pieces of stone and measured 6ft x 4ft. There were several semi-precious stone inlaid such as Jasper, mother-of-pearl, cornelian and several Italian stones. There were several artisans involved in the project as can be seen in the image to the left.
