Managing Director and Founder
Alan MacNae is the founder and co-director of Stone Interiors, which he established in 2003. Alan has built up an industry-leading reputation for quality stone work, with his vast knowledge and expertise of working with stone being renowned within the KBB (kitchens, bathrooms and bedroom) sector. Alan entered the industry as a labourer with a construction firm working on the Financial Times building. Learning the trade “from the bottom up”, working with several companies specialising in exterior stonework, he joined a firm specialising in domestic interior stonework and realised that this was the area he wanted to focus on. Seeing the growth potential for finest-quality stone interiors, he decided to branch out by himself and has “never looked back”. With a firm commitment to the highest standards of quality and customer service, Alan has cultivated solid connections with the best architects, builders, retailers and showrooms in and around London.
“From the start I had a vision of running a business that would deliver the highest standards of quality and service, without compromise. This is now our hallmark and we will always go that extra mile to deliver the best-quality products to our clients and ensure that their dreams become reality.
“Our management and design team has decades’ worth of experience within the industry and over the years we have developed innovative manufacturing and fitting techniques that represent best practice within the sector. That is why industry leaders have worked with us for many years, because they know that they can always count on Stone Interiors to deliver something special.”
Gill has worked for Stone Interiors for four years as Finance Manager. She manages the company finances, payroll and HR. Gill works closely with the Contracts Department and assists with project costing on larger projects.
“I am proud to be part of the team at Stone Interiors. Together, we contribute to delivering the highest standard of service and quality to all our clients.”

She is assisted by two Site Managers, David Thomas (AKA ‘Nash’) and Mark Letch, and together they ensure “all cogs are turning, and at the right speed”.
“We continue to enjoy strong relationships with the best designers and architects in London because we have a shared goal: to consistently deliver the finest quality of workmanship to our clients, be it for a residential or commercial project.”

He “cut his teeth” working on major commercial projects but migrated towards the domestic market, before moving into management. As a site manager, Mark oversees all the day-to-day work on site, and is the frontline between clients and Stone Interiors.
“The beauty of stone is unsurpassed and it’s the finished product motivates me the most. Stone is timeless. It has an opulence and beauty that you just can’t get with any other material.”
David comes from a project management background and has worked on some of the most exclusive residential properties in London. With a keen eye for detail, David supervises projects on-site and ensures quality control.
