New Ravenna Mosaics introduces new parquet tile designed by Sara Baldwin in jewel glass and natural stone. The four patterns,Truman, Newman Rubrik, and Marshall are inspired by the 17th century parquetry wood floors, a technique originally created for Versailles. In mosaic, each design has a linear structure, with the glass or stone cut on a water jet and assembled by hand at the New Ravenna studio in Exmore, Virginia. According to Baldwin, founder and creative director of New Ravenna Mosaics, “I realized that parquet flooring in wood is a classic form that would lend itself beautifully to stone and glass. Our materials have natural striations that are only enhanced by the process of reassembling the geometric pieces.” Truman, Newman, Rubrik and Marshall are available in stone for interior and exterior floors and walls and in glass for interior vertical walls. The mosaics are custom made to order for each installation.
New Ravenna Mosaics supplies both custom and ready to ship tile for imaginative, sustainable, and durable surfaces. Over 200 remarkable designs are available at tile showrooms throughout the United States, Canada, London, and Dubai. www.newravenna.com (757) 442-3379
