That way, you can be certain that your bathroom will be unique.

By listening to your desires we can create unique works of art, paying careful attention to detail and lay the finished work and advise you on cleaning and maintaining the mosaics so that they last a lifetime.
Our website gallery shows a range of projects we have completed for walls, bath surrounds, and floors in the cosmatesco style. Each mosaic is unique.
If you require information on costs or how long it will take to realise your project, please feel free to write to us, including a photo and some approximate measurements. We are happy to come out to you to see the location of the work (at no extra charge in Italy).
Wall and Floor Mosaics
In a world where tastes are increasingly homogenised and restricted by big interior design chain-stores, artists and artisans have an important role to provide a voice for those people who want to distinguish themselves, or want to have a truly personal touch to their home which cannot be copied. With AFMosici you can turn to us with your idea and we will be more than happy to give you a quote.
If you don’t yet have a clear idea, we would be delighted to help you. We will visit your home and inspect the area, and come up with a unique deign, falling back on many years of experience and a flare for creativity. We can offer ideas that range from traditional antique style mosaics, through to modern, contemporary or abstract designs. We are skilled in many different techniques including cosmatesco and graniglia.
From design to creation, we pay close attention to detail and you can have confidence in our professionalism.
Reproductions: Paintings and Antique Roman Mosaics
The mosaic technique has been used for centuries to reproduce works of art, indeed few people realise that the pictures hanging on the wall of the Basilica of San Pietro in Rome are not in fact paintings, but mosaics made with very small tiles, a technique often referred to as micromosaics.
A large number of famous painters created works on paper that were destined to become mosaics: Klimt, Caravaggio, and Van Gogh to name but a few, and the mosaic artists were the ones to cement these reproductions.
From religious designs through to contemporary and modern art, any piece can be commissioned.
AF Mosaici offers a complete and comprehensive range of restorative services for mosaics: cleaning, reconstruction, removing and repositioning Venetian and Palladiana floor and Lapiedi floors.
Our experience, knowledge of materials and techniques enables us to create mosaics table tops for both indoor and outdoor tables. We can produce table tops in tarsia with ancient and modern marbles, artisan terracotta or uniting two materials such as wood and marble.
In the photographs you can see some examples of tables created for commissions as well as tables for sale. These tables are great for terraces, patios, dining rooms, and bedrooms. They can be made in any shape: square, round, rectangular. We also specialise in recycling pallets and turning them into stylish coffee tables.
One of the advantages of turning to an artisan rather than a shop is that with an artisan you can get exactly what you want, rather than what is in stock. You have control of the shape, size, colour, material and design, with an expert to guide you and advise you each step of the way, so the table becomes a centre piece in your home.
Mosaics can be applied to the field of design.
The ancient practice of mosaic making has always been rejuvenated over the course of the time and original forms have been reinterpreted for contemporary art, urban spaces, architectural concepts and of course for domestic settings.
Mosaics can be used either as pieces of art in themselves, or incorporated in to larger modern interior or exterior design projects. As pieces of art, mosaics can capture personal aesthetics, and they can even be applied to every-day objects, such as lamps and wine-racks lending them an aesthetic dignity.
