When Country Floors launched the Marsala Collection, it was described as being a “ceramic collection that pays homage to the unique nature of the original 19th and 20th century Sicilian Baldosa Tile. The true beauty of the original Sicilian Baldosa Tile lies within its imperfections. The original hand-crafted Sicilian Baldosa tiles are made out of soft clay that was hand pressed into wooden molds, then scraped and dried in the hot Sicilian sun. Those tiles are usually imperfect in size and texture, with the occasional animal tracks, cracks, and chips that are a part of the tiles’ design and beauty“.
We also agree with the assessment that “Marsala delivers the imperfect nature of the original Baldosa tile, with a rich crackle finish, hand-painted detail, and distressed beauty. The pinholes, cracks, chips, and stains add to the ‘vintage’ look of this new collection“. Now we offer an addition to Marsala in Marsala Classic which layers more authentic qualities onto the previous collection. Please take a look at the new PDF on this collection, and check our Zellige tiles.
This is a fine example of what Country Floors can offer when presented with a new design challenge. We have showroom locations across the U.S. and the Caribbean where our design professionals are there to help. Thanks for reading!
