Founded in 1998 by Jacqueline Lestingi-Faure in the village of Niderviller (North East France), Blanc Carrare has a particular and critical approach to natural stone. Over the years, it has become a leading brand for internationally renowned interior designers and decorators including Stéphane Parmentier, Stéphanie Coutas, Thierry Lemaire, Le Berre Vevaud, Ina Rinderknecht and Nathan Litera, amongst others.

Blanc Carrare, which has been awarded the Entreprise du Patrimoine Vivant (EPV) label, perpetuates traditional know-how while reconciling innovation and creativity. The company combines bespoke cuts and digital controls, unique assemblies, finishes and patinas. With a team of 35 employees, the brand has mastered all the mechanical processes linked to exceptional stones, enabling it to constantly push its boundaries to include lightweight stone panels on honeycomb, marble glued to glass or carbon fibre and many more.

From lava stone extracted in Auvergne to marble from Italy and onyx from South America, each piece is meticulously sourced from all over the world, before being transformed and magnified in the French and Swiss workshops of Blanc Carrare. The company is inspired by the sculptural power of natural stone, and its roughness and colour variations that make it so unique. Through its expertise, the company enables creators, architects and designers to give life to unique creations as well as those in the hotel, retail, residential and publishing sectors.

Blanc Carrare’s signature volcanic stone is included in the Noire de Lave collection, whose design and artistic direction were entrusted to Italian architects and designers Alessandra Apos and Andrea Persano. Comprising a range of paving, wall coverings, furniture and decorative accessories, Noire de Lave is based on the use of exclusive patinas developed by Blanc Carrare.
