Enough Geoghraphy, lets talk about the stone! Lacken Stone is a sandstone. It is primarily a biscuit coloured stone with a grey vein running through it. It is a very hard stone and stone masons like it as it is easy to shape.
The Lacken Stone is nice with cream or off white windows. The brown and grey stone is a nice contrast to the cream or white. During the celtic tiger period, people built cream stone clad homes with cream windows and finished the interior floors with cream marble ( or Crema Marfil ). This combination soon dated and we have learnt that a subtle balance and mix of colour looks better long term and in plain speak is more " old money " than noveaux riche "!
