A big thank you to Rebekah from Wild Ink Press for publishing these pictures on her blog and then a guest post on Brooklyn Limestone.  We love the before and after pictures.  It is an incredible bathroom.

I think our visitors will enjoy seeing the before and after pictures as well.  You can see her mood board here.  Then look at the before pictures here.  Then reveal post on Brooklyn Limestone.

From our side we were not aware the marble shipped was going to be so well covered.  It was a complete surprise to us when we came across the photographs.  The bathroom used Carrara Venato 3×6″, Carrara Venato Hexagon 1″, Carrara Venato Pencil and Chair rail all honed.

Not the best. But it is just an iPhone image of the Venato 3×6″ for $8.00SF how it looks and how well it goes with the trims. Here it shows honed pencils $9.99EA.

Carrara Venato 6×12″ Honed Subway Tile

Carrara Venato 6x12" Honed Subway TileNothing fancy about our product images, we try and make them as ‘real’ as possible. ¬†This is a pallet of 6×12″ in our warehouse and picture taken with an iPhone. ¬†The Carrara Venato 6×12″ Honed¬†subway tile still proves to be consistent in appearance. ¬†A¬†striking¬†white base (as white as Calacatta) with gray veining. Available in Honed¬†and Polished¬†for $8.00SF.

Carrara Venato 6×12″ Honed from April 2020 modeled with the perfect pup!

You can see how consistent Carrara Venato is through time. From a simple pallet arriving with the tile to bathrooms and showers the look remains consistent. Exactly what we look for. We have a standard we expect to keep with Carrara Venato and this is it.


2021 Updated Image Below: To keep images of products fresh we like to add new images. This room scene is from April 20th 2021. You can see how white Carrara Venato is, it is as white as Calacatta and a great affordable alternative. It is also very consistent. We will keep posting new images.

Premium Honed Venato 3×6 Subway Tile

Venato 3x6A new shipment of Venato 3×6″ Honed Subway Tile arrived Sept 1st 2013. ¬†Pictures taken in our warehouse with just an iPhone.

Venato 3x6 Subway TileOnce again our block selectors and purveyors of premium white marble have succeeded again.

3x6 Subway TileOnly the very whitest based tile fits into the Venato collection.

With new shipments arriving almost daily it amazes me (us that work in the warehouse) how our European colleagues have managed to keep the consistency of Venato Carrara so perfect.  Anyone with any experience in natural stone knows how much of a challenge it it to keep collections similar in base, texture and veining.  I think what sets us apart from the rest is actually having an operation and in Europe.  This allows us to respond faster, make better decisions and with the time difference not being an issue just better dialogue.

All this translates into this. ¬†What we receive months later as perfect Carrara Venato Subway Tiles in 12×24″, 3×6″, 2×4″, and 6×12″. ¬†We will continue to expand the range offering more variation in sizes allowing designers and enthusiastic home owners even more design options than ever before.

These pictures were just taken on a Thursday morning, opened a few boxes of 3×6″ Venato, laid them on the warehouse floor mat (before 7:30am and the sun was too bright) and took a few snaps with an iPhone. ¬†No camera trickery – just simple pics we can then email to our list of contractors and designers. ¬†Any interest in this particular lot please reference ‘C15 Sept 12’ when emailing

Finally on Monday April 13th the Carrara Venato 12×24″ is back in stock. ¬†However with this level of quality and veining it will not be in stock for long. ¬†This is pretty much perfect Venato, the idea of the collection is a whiter base than traditional Carrara with some veining. ¬†Not veining all over just occasional dribbles. ¬†The overall look especially with the larger format tiles is a cleaner less busy appearance. ¬†It looks a lot closer in appearance to a statuary.

We are often asked “if you know you are going to run out, why not buy more?” ¬†A great question. ¬†The problem is getting this level of quality. ¬†We can easily order more Carrara, there is plenty of Carrara but not plenty that fits the standards for the Venato collection. ¬†If we are willing to accept a grayer base, let’s call it “B” Grade then you can have all the Carrara you want. ¬†But we are not. ¬†For Venato we insist on a very high grade of Carrara (a premium white base) and I am afraid that limits the amount of marble we can get.

We are limited in supply by what the ground provides and the high standards we have set for a whiter base.
