Travertine, a solid foundation for beauty and splendour

Travertine is a type of limestone, which sets it apart from other natural stones like marble, granite, or onyx, because it has several distinct properties. It is formed through precipitation and sedimentation of carbonate minerals. As is common with limestone, it is porous, with holes and troughs naturally forming on its surface.

What really gives travertine the edge over other types of natural stone, however, is its natural resistance to water and heat, a consequence of it being formed by (mostly hot) mineral springs. On top of this, the stone is very strong and durable, which is why it has been used as a building material throughout history whenever exceptional quality and beauty were required.

Travertine’s indoor and outdoor purposes

Because it reacts so well to water, heat and impact, travertine is perfectly suited for any number of indoor and outdoor purposes. Travertine tiles and pavers are very popular choices for both indoor and outdoor floors.

This is especially the case for flooring around swimming pools, as well as in kitchens and bathrooms, given that the stone has a non-slippery surface. Travertine is also often used for backsplashes, countertops, and many other purposes.

How we supply travertine from the quarry to your door

As a supplier of exclusive natural stone, we feel that you deserve nothing less than our utmost attention. As a part of this service, we will guide you through the entire journey, all the way from the quarry to your door. From its humble beginnings as a slab of stone right up to its transformation into a bespoke design, we will make sure your travertine meets and exceeds your wishes.

In addition, we know from extensive experience that to get the best, you need to work with the best. That’s why we work only with the finest stone experts, craftsmen and designers and use only the best cuts of stone available.

Sourcing travertine of the highest quality from our quarries

Since we are able to source our stones from a large network of quarries, we are in the best position to locate the finest cuts of travertine. Our experts have a keen eye for quality and know just what our clients have come to expect from us. We are never in doubt as to the quality and authenticity of our stones, because we buy everything directly from the quarry itself.

Shipping travertine anywhere in the world

Each precious piece of travertine is transported to our in-house manufacturing atelier in the Netherlands. Our highly skilled craftsmen possess just the right know-how, tools, and experience to come up with something extraordinary for every project. Once they’ve worked their magic, we ship the finished product to our clients, wherever in the world their home or project may be.

Designing and creating innovation with travertine

To furnish your travertine with an even higher level of quality and class, we give each piece a unique and innovative design. We let our creativity flow through the veins of the stone to bring the material to life. Your dreams inspire us to make every design a piece of art in its own right.

Our craftsmen work in close collaboration with our project managers, sketch artists, and world-famous designers and architects. This harmony of creative minds and beautiful material is our recipe for turning travertine slabs into tiles, pavers, countertops, backsplashes, walls, and travertine blocks into sinks, bars or any other fixture you desire.

Installing and maintaining travertine

We deliver your stone design right to your door, but our service doesn’t stop there. To be certain that the travertine receives the care and respect it requires, our own team will install your design on-site. You can leave it to them to make the stone an integral part of your interior. And they can even handle any maintenance needs you might have, to prevent wear and preserve the quality of the stone.

Choose between different travertine finishes

Travertine’s porous material makes it possible to give the stone a variety of finishes. Decide whether you would like the stone filled or unfilled and find the type of finish that best fits what you have in mind and our craftsmen will create it for you.

Filled travertine

It is possible to fill the pores in the surface to give the travertine a smoother finish. We can fill the stone in the same colour as the material or by using a transparent epoxy. Filling the surface is often done for floor tiles and countertops, as it prevents dirt and liquids from getting in between the pores.

Unfilled travertine

You can decide to leave the travertine unfilled for a more natural look. This is particularly suited for vertical designs, such as walls and furniture designs.

Polished travertine

We can polish the surface for a shiny, glossy look. This looks very similar to marble, which has led to it being sometimes referred to as travertine marble.

Brushed travertine

By treating the travertine with a wire brush, our craftsmen can give it a matte look. As opposed to the shiny appearance of polished travertine, brushed travertine has an understated non-reflective character.

Honed travertine

Honed travertine is created by grinding one side with an abrasive material. The result is a smooth surface with a look that can be anywhere between shiny and matte.

Keeping travertine tiles clean

Travertine is a beautiful type of natural stone, but it requires regular cleaning to help it retain its splendour. Flooring is especially susceptible to the effects of dirt – without proper maintenance, the stone will start to lose its lustre quickly.

Naturally, our team is well-versed in cleaning travertine; they have a deep understanding of treatment options and know exactly which materials to use and which to avoid. They will provide detailed instructions while installing the stone, but you can always contact us with any questions you may have.

Travertine interior projects

The natural warmth and beauty of travertine comes to life in our clients’ projects, no matter the size. If you want an example, look no further than the Qatar National Library in Doha. Travertine forms its heart and soul; the magical desert is reflected in the natural and earthy colours of the walls and floors, which emphasize the importance and quality of the library as both a building and an institution.

Understandably, we love ambitious projects like these, but are equally proud to put our experience to work decorating a villa and challenging ourselves to come up with innovative designs. In this example, you can see how well the material works as flooring, both indoors and outdoors. The stone brings the interior and exterior together perfectly.
