Permanence in an ever-changing world. The Ivory Travertine Collection combines art and craftsmanship to create an exceptional honed and filled natural travertine.Design options of sizes, shapes, mosaics and decorative trim pieces abound in this collection. In short by way of definition, travertine is a type of limestone and therefore is a sedimentary rock. It may have a concentric appearance and exists in white, tan, cream-colored, and even rusty varieties.It is has historically been been used in Italy and throughout the world as a building material. Travertine is one of the most commonly used stones in modern architecture. Think of the Farnsworth House, for example. This smooth yet unique surface in four designer neutral colors will add a refined touch to any floor, wall, backsplash or countertop in both residential and commercial applications.This is a Marble Systems product offering.
With a level of pure elegance that feels rare in the modern world, these natural stone mosaics create an artful finish with fresh new patterns drawn from the rich legacy of ancient Etruscan and Italian Renaissance architecture.In a twist made possible with waterjet technology, in some patterns, natural stone is deftly combined with touches of immaculately glazed ceramic. This creates a subtle and delightful contrast of materials while allowing for the introduction of pure, solid colors that can’t be achieved with stone alone. Look for beloved elemental shapes from the old world: The iconic quatrefoil and fleur de lis, the arc, heart, tulip, leaf and petal, are iterated newly in patterns that harken a lost world of splendor and finesse.As these classic shapes interlock and weave their way across walls or floors, they become a soothing
reminder of the permanence and timelessness of impeccable craft.
