Fordham Marble Donates Floor for Bedford Playhouse's Renovated VIP Tasting & Green Room

Fordham Marble is proud to be a sponsor of the renovation of the Bedford Playhouse's VIP Tasting and Green Room. See the gala opening of the room in the video below. Don't miss our very own Joyce Sardo, at the 1:25 mark!

The floor is a stunning polished Carrara & Nero Black, forming a modern twist on a Traditional Hexagonal Pattern. These two timeless stones have been working hand-in-hand together for centuries and coupled with a "tight joint" grout line, make a perfect choice for the Bedford Playhouse Wine Tasting Room. Combined with the other finishing pieces, the Marble Floor grounds the design perfectly.
