As Seen In: Elle Décor

We are so very pleased to announce that New Ravenna has been published in the November issue of Elle Décor! This month’s edition stars legendary fashion and style icon, Ralph Lauren, on the cover, along with a piece summarizing 50 years of his legendary style. So, you can imagine our excitement when we discovered that within, we are the featured artist in an editorial piece about mosaics! This piece includes a full-page photo of our 24-karat-gold glass Egrets mosaic, an in-progress shot of our master mosaicist, Bobby Jones, creating said mosaic, and many additional mentions of New Ravenna!

With a 24-karat-gold background, 15 colors of jewel glass used to create the birds and cherry blossoms, and four grout colors, the “Egrets” mosaic (shown below) highlights the complexity and beauty achieved in a custom mosaic. Elle Decór describes the mosaic art form as “not for the faint of heart – or the empty of pocket,” and goes on to describe the intricacy and therefore the hefty price of custom mosaics (including our Neptune mural with three stallions roaring out of a wave).

Mosaics of this complexity take weeks and weeks to create at New Ravenna, as every little piece is hand cut and meticulously placed to produce the final result. With “Egrets,” the story is much more involved. An incredibly talented New Ravenna team member (and sketch artist by night) was asked to sketch some birds. She came up with this southern twist on a classic oriental scene by using egrets (indicative to the Eastern Shore of Virginia, where our factory is located) and magnolia blossoms (a southern staple). Our talented mosaicists then used tiny pieces of hand cut glass to create the mosaic you see today!

The November issue of Elle Decór is on newsstands now!

As you can see, the mosaics we create at New Ravenna are completely customizable and can be made to order in any color and size and in most materials. The choice is yours! To find the New Ravenna showroom nearest you, click here.

As Seen In: Utopia

Utopia Kitchen + Bath, based in the UK, included multiple patterns from two of our collections in their September issue. The first collection featured is KIDDO by New Ravenna creative director, Cean Irminger, which can be seen in the Kitchens and Bathroom section of the magazine. Utopia features the What’s in the Box and the Wild Ones mosaic. With jungle animals and whimsical creatures peeking through and around the many shades and shapes of jewel glass, these are the ultimate playful touch to a child’s space! It’s no wonder that this feature is called “Feeling Playful.”

Wild ones, a jewel glass mosaic in Peridot, Olivine, Obsidian, Tortoise Shell, Amber, Citrine, Sardonyx, and Absolute White.

Utopia goes on to include four more New Ravenna mosaics in their cover story, “Moroccan Delights: Exotic Bathroom Style.” When creating a piece on Moroccan-inspired interior design, there is not better place to turn than our Miraflores Collection from Paul Schatz! The inspiration for the bold and colorful Miraflores Collection was Schatz’s travels throughout Spain, Portugal and Mexico, and his passion for Morocco and Islamic geometric art. Miraflores, which means “to watch flowers” in Spanish, has a storied legacy of palaces, monasteries and neighborhoods in South America. The patterns included are Castilla, Alcala, Alcazar and Jaen – all of which are created from natural stone and can be installed on walls and floors, indoors and out.

As always, the mosaics we create at New Ravenna are completely customizable and can be made to order in any color and size and in most materials. The choice is yours! To find the New Ravenna showroom nearest you, click here.

As Seen In: Architectural Digest Germany

Architectural Digest is a household name to any and all interior design lovers out there. It transcends nationalities and is one of the leading experts on architecture, design, interiors, travel and more. This month, the New Ravenna name reached all the way to Germany as we were picked up in Architectural Digest Germany’s September issue about “the art of nonchalance” in places like Palermo, Paris and Copenhagen!

This special bath supplement from AD Germany claims that monotone tile is a thing of the past; tiles are now showing depth, movement and a penchant for color. And, what better example of modern, colorful tile than our “Subway!” mosaic from the KIDDO: Wunderkammer Edition Collection by New Ravenna creative director, Cean Irminger?

 

Subway! is a waterjet jewel glass mosaic shown in the above article in Absolute White, Obsidian,Garnet, Verdite, Sardonyx, and Chrysocolla. This playful, whimsical pattern is the perfect touch for a child’s bathroom or playroom. See more Subway! here.

Subway!, like the majority of New Ravenna products, can be fully customized with the client’s material preferences to fit the scope of any commercial or residential project and is available at New Ravenna showrooms throughout the United States, Canada, Europe, Russia, and Dubai.
