Scagliola

Scagliola, pronounced “sca-lee-oh-lah,” is a centuries-old technique for creating ornamental stonework that mimics fine marble and limestone. It remains highly prized for its historic value and exquisite artistry. The technique came into fashion in Italian Baroque buildings of the 17th century and continued to flourish in Europe and America through the 20th century. Some of the finest examples can be found in luxurious European residences and ornate churches.

François & Co. Scagliola is created by hand, using the meticulous techniques and materials of the original masters. The subtle nuances and the aged patina of our Scagliola are the results of the application of multiple layers of pigment, made of a proprietary mixture of limestone dust and marble chips. Next comes the honing and polishing process, where the pinholes are filled with putty and the polishing process is repeated until the surface is flawless. The final outcome surpasses even that of natural veined marbles.
