Crema Toscana by ANN SACKS® exemplifies the rare beauty of true Tuscan travertine
PORTLAND, Ore. (April 24, 2012) – ANN SACKS, a premier manufacturer and distributor of tile, introduces Crema Toscana at the 2012 Kitchen and Bath Industry Show in Chicago. This stunning example of Tuscan travertine is widely considered to be the finest travertine in the world. The exceptionally high quality stone has long been prized by builders and designers for its durability and beautiful veining, and now ANN SACKS offers this limited quantity material with the company’s signature impeccable, softly honed finish.
Tuscan travertine has a reputation for indestructibility that extends back to the ancient Romans, who used the stone to build their famous – and still standing – coliseums. ANN SACKS has rare access to a small Tuscan quarry where Crema Toscana is quarried, and this particular stone, which is unusually dense and resilient, comes in a soft cream color that is seldom seen with travertine.
With a delicate gray and taupe ribbon that runs throughout, Crema Toscana has a character and depth that is matched only by its durability and strength. Its coloring is neutral but never dull; this exceptional stone brings its innate style and visual interest to any space. Available in 12”x20”, 20”x20”, and 30”x72”, slabs.
