Our Story

In 2003 Vasari Lime Plaster & Paint was founded by Alex Conrad, lover of art, architecture, history, design and good living. He lived throughout Europe and studied design, traditional building practices and plaster application. It was there that the beauty of the ancient plasters inspired him. 

He determined plaster could be manufactured in the U.S. at much better prices and often better quality than in Europe. His goal was to make a premium plaster wall finish product that would be truly a viable and superior replacement for paint. 

Once his formulas were perfected, Alex began providing plaster for many venues including humble homes, mansions, hotels, restaurants, boutiques, hospitals, churches and more. 

In 2006 Lara Conrad joined the business and the family owned business has continued to grow every year.

Today, manufacturing near the beaches of Ventura, California, we are still as inspired and obsessed with crafting the best possible wall finishes in the world. 

We ship our products via ground, sea and by air in North America and internationally. Beyond material supply, Vasari can be instrumental in project referrals and organization. Vasari is committed to environmental building practices and green manufacturing. That is why we can help you achieve greater LEED points in building certification. Most importantly, Vasari will give you the most beautiful, clean and calming environment to live, work and play in.  

OUR NAME

The name Vasari is a tribute to the great Italian renaissance artisan, painter, writer, historian and plasterer, Giorgio Vasari (July 30, 1511 – June 27, 1574) who is most famous today for his Lives of the Most Excellent Painters, Sculptors, and Architects, considered the ideological foundation of art-historical writing.

Giorgio Vasari was an artist, architect and historian of the Renaissance. He wrote about the lives of all major Renaissance artists and their techniques. He even coined the term 'Renaissance'. We like him so much that we named our company after him. To find out more about him, click here.

"Plaster, as used by the ancients and through a good part of the medieval to Renaissance periods is a fine material made, susceptible of varied and effective artistic treatments. It was made by the Greeks of such exquisite a quality that it was equivalent to marble. It would be polished, so Vitruvious tells us, until it would reflect the beholder's face as if in a mirror." Giorgio Vasari , 1568
