Cotto D’Este VIP Lounge

VIP Lounge from Cotto D’Este is the latest from Italy in porcelain tiles. These cosmopolitan tiles have a very modern and refined look to them. Stocked in Black (LHR) and Gray (DBX) with the slightly textured (sabbiata) finish gives this porcelain a very convincing natural stone look. The stocked size is a 12″x24″ to enhance the modernity to every design.

bianco carrara basketweave mosaic bath

This classic “his” master bathroom designed by homewoner Lesley Cohen was featured in the fall issues of athome Magazine of Fairfield County.

The floors are a polished Italian Bianco Carrara basketweave mosaic inlaid with Bardiglio dots. The gray Bardiglio complements the gray veins that run through the Bianco Carrara. Overall a softer look than the more common Nero Marquina (black) accents.  

The walls cleverly used a brick pattern with a 12″x12″ Bianco Carrara tile. The stone tiled walls are finished with an elegant greek key mosaic deco border and then topped with a bianco carrara chair rail molding.

This classic look for a bathroom is versatile. Subtle tweaks with hardware, accessories and furniture can bring this design inot a modern city apartment  or a traditional country estate. Either application it is a timeless design.

Glass Thassos – Hamptons Pool Project

Our Glass Thassos was specified for an infinity swimming pool in Southampton, NY. For this project the surface was done in a fine sandblasted textured finish. The surface was the perfect texture that feels great on bare feet and provides sufficient traction on wet surfaces. The pavers used for this project are 36″x36″ square. Custom grates, steps and pool coping.

Glass Thassos is revolutionary new material, man–made from crystallized glass placed under extreme heat. A pure white surface is consistent throughout each piece. The material is harder than granite and has virtually no absorbency so it never requires sealing. It is an excellent substitute for white marble as each piece has crystals embedded which reflect light to create depth into the surface like marble. It is suitable for interior and exterior application and available in polished and sandblasted finishes.
