Perfecting our craft for 25 years
About Classic Stone
Original design. Outstanding quality.
Classic Stone features a wide range of elegant planters, water features and furniture that were originally designed by Tim Lewis. He started the business 25 years ago, realising that there were few well designed, good quality planters in the marketplace. From there, the business branched out into furniture, water features and other items. Even though the range has grown, Classic Stone remains committed to ensuring that each item it produces still conforms to the original vision of quality.
Each piece is manufactured from a reconstituted stone material and is handcrafted to achieve a high-quality finish. Original forms are crafted from plaster and wood. Moulds are taken and these are used to produce each piece. The reconstituted stone medium is placed into the moulds and then reinforced with a high strength fibre cement material. Later, each item is treated to create a finish that is unique to the individual product. As with any natural material, there are subtle variations in the surface texture and colour, enhancing the range’s handcrafted yet sophisticated appeal.
Classic Stone has worked closely with many Landscape Architects, Architects, Developers, Landscapers and Interior Architects over the years in designing products that meet their requirements for specific projects. The advantage of working in the industry for many years is that we can draw on those years of experience and be sure that we can provide solutions that we know will stand the test of time. As a designer and supplier, we enjoy active collaboration with you.
The Classic Stone range has become sort-after in the international market, and increasingly products are being shipped for foreign projects.
The Classic Stone range is designed and manufactured in Cape Town and is distributed countrywide in South Africa and internationally.
High Quality Finishes
- Classic Stone has always been driven to manufacture products of high quality
- The process that we use to craft our range results in each item having a unique natural finish
- This is not a superficial surface finish but rather a result of the natural aggregates used and the hand of the craftsmen making each item
- Our pieces are always finished with attention to detail so that they can be appreciated up close and from afar
- Much of our furniture is polished and chamfer edged to provide a sophisticated aesthetic
