ANN SACKS® Brings New Color, Pattern, and Finish Options to Beau Monde

As part of its 2015 introductions, ANN SACKS updates its Beau Monde collection, a longstanding classic in the ANN SACKS repertoire, with two new patterns, two new colors, and a new finish.  The Beau Monde collection actually represents two tile mosaic categories and an impressive 43 designs all total – the original Beau Monde, a stone mosaic series with 31 designs inspired by the ancient mosaic art form of Pietre Dura, and Beau Monde Glass, that carries 12 intricate water-jet cut glass designs.

Joining the Beau Monde stone portfolio is Clark (shown), a linear 11-9/16" x 11-9/16" mosaic designed to be laid up on the diagonal to create textural dimension within a room and Madelyn, an 11-7/8" x 11-3/8" stylized, repetitive abstract design that beautifully adapts to horizontal or vertical installations.  Also making its debut is the handcrafted finish, Della Mano (Italian for “of the hand”), its slight, pillowed surface and appealing soft hand and gently undulating surface achieved through a labor-intense hand finishing and polishing process.  Rounding out the Beau Monde additions are two new colors, Cashmere, a cream-to-caramel hue of remarkable, complementing depth of color, and Shell, a random, graduating soft white-to-grey blend of shades.  Both can be specified for any Beau Monde stone or glass pattern.
