PietraArt Travertine from Florida Tile is a stunning collection of natural stone that stands the test of time while adding sophistication and value to indoor and outdoor spaces alike. Travertine has long been a symbol of luxury and opulence. The Ancient Romans utilized it when building the Colosseum in Rome and today the travertine piers and arcades are largely intact and serve as a testament to the inherent strength and lasting beauty of this amazing stone. In the modern era, the Getty Center was built with 1.2 million square feet of travertine to complement the natural environment and give homage to historical building concepts, resulting in an impressively beautiful mecca of art and architecture. Three distinct stone choices create value in any residential or commercial project. Ivory is a subtle blend of creams and beiges with hints of soft gray that adds an understated elegance. Picasso is a complex mix of bold ambers, tans, whites and just a touch of contrasting gray that brings warmth and depth to any space. Silver Ash is a muted composite of neutral silver and gray tones that creates a sense of calm. This exquisite natural stone collection is a versatile design tool. Each type of stone comes in varying size, format, and finish options. All three feature 4×4 and 3×6 field tiles in a tumbled finish as well as 12×12 and 18×18 formats in a filled & honed finish. Field tile in 8×8, 8×16,16×16, and 16×24 sizes with a chiseled edge are available in Ivory and Picasso. Mosaics, including a random stack and 2×4 brick pattern – both in a tumbled finish, are choices in all three stones. A chair rail and pencil in the filled & honed finish complete this line. PietraArt Travertine is able to easily tolerate extreme weather fluctuations making it well suited for both outdoor and indoor installations. Its proven durability in high-traffic environments makes it a perfect fit for both residential and commercial projects.
