As Seen In: South Africa’s Living Space Magazine

Livingspace, based in South Africa, is a monthly inspirational and aspirational decor and lifestyle magazine dedicated to bringing its readers the very best in decor, lifestyle, gourmet, gardening and DIY. In their summer trends piece entitled “Let It Shine,” they featured one of our absolute favorite materials and one that we use in many of our mosaics at New Ravenna – brass! Brass is the metallic of the moment and gives a pop of opulence to any room through chairs, light fixtures, wall paper, tile – take your pick! From New Ravenna, Livingspace included our Margot mosaic in Tiger’s Eye Jewel Glass and 24K Gold Glass – not brass, but still gives the room that pop of gold! See number two below.

 

As Seen In: HobNob Magazine

What a fun and engaging publication HobNob magazine is! Ellen Swandiak, a wizard of food, drink and, of course, STYLE, has designed HobNob to give readers the tools to make all future gatherings that much more interesting. And, as a result of combing New York City for inspiration, she has compiled the best restaurants, bars, and events. Her style section includes home design tips and modern tools for entertaining. She recently came out with a high-end kitchen design piece, highlighting elements to help readers create a state-of-the-art space to love. Included in this piece are four patterns from Legend, a collection of seven textural mosaics reminiscent of ancient textiles designed by Sara Baldwin and Paul Schatz for New Ravenna.

The four patterns included in HobNob are Rimini, Augustine, Omar and Kuba. Of these patterns, HobNob says, “There’s nothing like a mosaic design to give a place a sense of history. These patterns from New Ravenna feature a collection of seven mosaics inspired by ancient textiles. The subtle palette is determined by the different tones in the natural stones that have been tumbled, polished and hand-chopped.”

The inspiration for this collection was Baldwin’s travels through open-air markets and exotic souks around the world. The fabrics she found there contain an artisan’s narrative within their seams and frayed edges, and that’s exactly what we wanted to evoke…but in mosaic form! You’ll notice that a lot of these patterns actually look like fabric and, if made from yarn instead of stone, could be the rugs you see on a floor.

Each pattern can be fully customized with the client’s material preferences to fit the scope of any commercial or residential project. Every mosaic in the Legend Collection can be installed indoors or out, on floors or walls. The collection is available at New Ravenna showrooms throughout the United States, Canada, Europe, Russia, and Dubai.

This summer, SDG/GL included Mod Palm in their “Hot Finds” feature and credits both New Ravenna, designer Joni Vanderslice of J. Banks Design, and Unique Stone Imports, our showroom in San Diego where you can find Mod Palm and any other New Ravenna tile if you’re around the area and interested! We love this piece because, in addition to our bold mosaic, there are so many products to feed the senses! From wallpaper, bathing suits and candles to lamps, mirrors and soap, this issue really does describe “what we want NOW.”

Mod Palm is a hand-cut jewel glass mosaic which was designed by Joni Vanderslice as part of the J. Banks Collection for New Ravenna. It is shown below in Verdite, Peridot, Malachite, Chrysocolla, Savorite, Cat’s Eye, Jasper, Schist, Tanzite, and Peridot with Moonstone background with a Sea Glass™ finish.
