Saloon - Columns, pilasters, frieze and urns

The great triumph of the saloon, however, is the use of scagliola, including the richly coloured and figured Sienna shafts of the eight fluted Corinthian columns...and the urns, entablature and balustrade to the second-floor landing which gives access to four plaster-vaulted ante rooms serving the main bedrooms. All this scagliola was produced by Richard Feroze, England's leading contemporary scagliola-maker for Hayles and Howe.

St. Joseph's Chapel, London Oratory

Project Architect: Russell Taylor

The colours of the columns and panels were chosen to complement existing marbles in the chapel, and the apse is lined with curved panels which look like red and black marble but which are, in fact, Scagliola, a man-made material used to simulate marble since the late 16th century. Scagliola can be found in many European churches of the Baroque period.
