Pietra Art Travertine
Pietra Art Travertine combines the natural veining and distinctive shading of
travertine with superior quality and inventory control practices to provide a
compelling value to customers from coast to coast. The series will consist of only
stone with an "A" quality rating (the highest), and will feature the four best selling
colors for the American market; light travertine, giallo (gold), noce', and rojo.
Distinctively rustic with chiseled edges, PietraArt 4X4 stone field tile and matching
decoratives is available in four natural earthen hues. The 4X4 tile and matching
brick pattern mosaics are tumbled for a soft weathered appearance. The 12X12 and
18X18 tiles are honed to a marble-like brilliance, and can be installed with or without
a grout joint, allowing for a rustic or more contemporary installation. As the stones
are cut rather than fired, the size is consistently true and exact.Aside from the variety
of matching "brick" pattern mosaics in each color, elegantly profiled chair rails and
ropes in various sizes are also available in each of the four field tile colors to add
another beautiful touch. Then, consider the stunning "rosones", or real marble "area
rugs", available in three sizes and two shapes (round or square) and in three
coordinating colors for the final design statement of upscale distinction.
