If you are tackling more than just a Backsplash consider that we have the largest choice of Nero Marquina in the USA. So you can add in borders and designs. Just a simple 1×4″ or 1×1″ accent can make a huge difference. Especially with Black Marble as it gives the color a reference point, black is black.

Hexagon Bardiglio

This customer accented the Bardiglio edged Hexagon with a 1×12″ strip. Then added 3×8″ Carrara Tile as a border around the edge. It is an incredible work of art. They saved thousands buying online. The Bardiglio Stripped Carrara Hexagon mosaic is just $12.95 a Square Foot. Retailers are selling this relative market new comer for $50.00 a Square Foot or more.

Calacatta Gold is looking really Good!

calacatta-2x4Calacatta 2×4″ Honed just checked the price: $15.95 and Free Shipping. (for 2016).

This is perfect Calacatta Gold. Not too busy, really white base. You could buy this open a retail shop put it on a display board and charge $50.00 a Square Foot and it would sell.

So many people do not understand the mechanics of the current archaic boutique Stone and Tile distribution process. It has been operating the same way in the USA for over half a decade with the cost of the product rising well above the cost of inflation and yet availability has remained the same, technology of extraction and fabrication have improved.  Have any of these savings been passed onto the consumer? Even in the dire times of 2009? No. Never. Not once! You can see the mountains of Carrara and the Tuscany region from the International Space Station.

So the excuse I hear in emails from retailers saying “real Italian Marble is no longer available” is absolute rubbish! Just go to Google Earth and show them the huge white mountains region of Carrara.

And moving in closer the quarries. So the next time a retailer tells you he cannot get Italian Marble anymore. That is not true. You can get premium ‘C’ grade. You just need to buy a awful lot of it in one go and have people on that side of the world. Which most retailers do not.

Or simply skip them and buy online but use our guide to buy safely. More info.

Installation of our Black and White mix Chevron Mosaic

Screen Shot 2016-08-22 at 8.41.44 PM

From Instagram: Black & White Chevron $12.95 a Square Foot part of the largest collection of Nero Marquina (Black Marble) Mosaics, Field Tiles and Trims in the USA.

This installer is remarkable at installation and best of all really takes pride in his work in the same way we take pride in the selection of our stone. It is difficult to find installers with a passion for installing natural stone. Here is our Black and White Chevron pattern being installed.He dry laid it measured out the area and then started the process. So many at least 80% of “so called” professionals just install box to box, sheet after sheet. Just throw it down. No checking by dry laying to stand back and think “perfect” then install. When you throw it down box to box, if their is a rouge sheet that is darker it will really stand out, but not until you have finished and it is too late. That is why the dry laying of natural stone is vital. To ensure the product is correct prior to installing. You can see his process on his Instagram Feed and follow him on Facebook.

You can read it in Dustin’s reviews “This is a guy who pays great attention to detail”. Love installers, craftsman, car mechanics anyone with a passion for what they do. It gives them an edge over every one else as they do it because they want to not because they have to.

Wish he lived near us.
