New Ravenna’s Palazzo Stone Tile Takes Cue from the Renaissance
Palazzo, a collection of mosaics by Sara Baldwin Design and Paul Schatz, features 13 hand-crafted natural stone patterns inspired by the Italian palaces constructed during the Renaissance era.
Moreover, as it explores classic motifs from Roman and Byzantine design, the Palazzo collection showcases the artistry of stone work as each piece of stone is either cut by hand, saw or waterjet, and either honed, polished or left in its original organic state.
Sara Baldwin, founder and creative director of New Ravenna says of Palazzo, “Originally, I was developing a mosaic for a foyer and reflected on the purpose of the entrance to our homes. A foyer is often a small space that has the capacity to make a dramatic statement with elegant material and generous scale. Often we seek to bring outdoor elements inside a home’s design, which is why I love using natural marble. Its inherent striations are uniquely beautiful, reflecting the soul of the stone.”
Finally, 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 Palazzo collection is made by hand in Virginia and 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.
