Sandra Choi, the Creative Director of Jimmy Choo, and her husband Tamburlaine Gorst, the former Head of Design at Kenzo Homme in Paris, have chosen Belgian Blue limestone from Trans-European Stone standing on two reclaimed sections of timber from Falmouth Pier to create a table in the garden of their home in Gloucester.

The table top measures 2200 x 900 x 45mm and weighs 300kg. And with such a distinguished base to rest on, the limestone table top had to undergo a meticulous process to create an antiqued finish in keeping with its surroundings.

The finished piece looks stunning in the context of the couple's picturesque garden. Tamburlaine says: "It has been a real pleasure to work with Trans-European Stone developing this blue limestone table top."

Trans-European Stone was formed in 2012 by Alan Gayle and Dirk Eeckhout to distribute, exclusively in the UK, Belgian Blue limestone from La Pierrre Bleue Belge, a major Western European dimension stone quarry operator with more than 65 years' experience in the manufacture and supply of building products.

Tamburlaine continued: "Dirk, in particular, was very responsive to the brief and then very reactive in sampling until the desired finish was developed. I was surprised at how quickly this happened once the go-ahead was given. The end result is a table top that looks beautifully authentically antique – just as we wanted it."

Belgian Blue is available in a multitude of finishes and is ideal for table tops, benches and all hard landscaping applications.
