Accidentally Bespoke

Since 1990, After the Antique has crafted exquisite natural stone designs for clients worldwide. Initially, we perfected our Signature Series, anticipating that, like many UK masonry companies, we would focus on a collection of popular designs. However, as time passed, we embraced more unique and unexpected projects—and thoroughly enjoyed the challenge. Questions like, "Can you create a marble fountain for an indoor swimming pool?" or "Could you sculpt a series of griffin statues for our garden?" became our exciting new norm. 

As a family-run business, our flexibility allows us to select projects that truly inspire us. Today, our focus is almost entirely on providing a bespoke masonry service. We believe every project deserves a uniquely personal touch, enabling us to meet your specific needs for quality, artistry, and value

Feature Highlight

The Jacuzzi Temple

We thrive on challenges, and this was a thrilling one. We had the pleasure of designing every natural stone element for a stunning private swimming pool and leisure room. Our vision was to create an oasis of warm beige marble, starting with a grand portico entrance and a double-tiered fountain. We then proposed that the Jacuzzi be set under an unforgettable marble-domed temple. Illuminated by a sprawling glass roof, each piece radiated in natural light. We're incredibly proud of how each hand-crafted piece brought timeless elegance to this modern space.
