1 Marking a departure from the stone it’s synonymous with, Lapicida has introduced ‘Old Faro’ (£71 per sq m) and ‘Silver Mirror’ porcelain tiles (£131 per sq m). The former are reproductions – complete with printed chips and cracks – of antique Portuguese tin-glazed azulejos (a blue-and-white patterned version is also available). The latter are inspired by aged looking-glass (in silver or bronze). Both are suitable for floors and walls.

The founders of the EDINBURGH ART FESTIVAL must have known they were on to a winner. For while you can’t count on sunshine in Leith in August, one thing you can bank on is footfall, as millions travel to the city for its other jamborees. And let’s face it, how would you rather spend an afternoon – cringing at cack-handed cabaret or wandering a rose walk and admiring some architecture? If – as we suspect – it’s the latter, make a beeline for Pablo Bron stein’s (WoI April 2017) pair of pavilions, installed at Jupiter Art land and connected by a garden in bloom. Also flour ish ing are those featuring in Edin burgh Col lege of Art’s master’s show. And we recommend the memorial chapel at Old St Paul’s,…
