London Bay Homes’ CEO, Mark Wilson Chooses SapienStone

SapienStone is known worldwide for for dressing kitchens with their beautiful and luxurious porcelain slabs. They are one of the leaders in the production of full-body porcelain slabs,  universally known for offering some of the highest quality products in the stone industry. SapienStone offers a variety of porcelain slabs that are specifically designed for kitchen countertops, fireplaces, vanities, & other interior and exterior design applications. Their manufacturing process is extremely unique and it is one of the reasons Mark Wilson, CEO of London Bay Homes, chose them for his renovation.

Mark Wilson Chooses Premium White PolishedMark Wilson is the current President and CEO of London Bay Homes, an award-winning developer, and homebuilder in Southwest Florida. They have been a leader for almost 3 decades. Their focus is on building custom homes for families and renovating condominiums in an effort to modernize the design. Their properties start off at $1 million and go over $10 million, in some of Florida’s most prestigious communities and neighborhoods. It is no secret that Mark Wilson understands luxury and unparalleled quality very well. In fact, during a recent move to Mark Wilson’s current residence, the glass top he planned on utilizing for his outdoor dining incurred some damage. Mark spent a good amount of time researching materials to replace this top. After researching the best in the industry he finally decided on SapienStone as his top choice.  In March of 2019, we supplied Mark with the Premium White Polished top in his Port Royal, Naples, FL home. We used a jumbo slab with a 2″ mitered edge used for an outdoor living table top. The overall size was 121″ x 54″. Not only was the color exactly what Mark had envisioned, but the characteristics of the material also fit his requirements.
