STONE WITH SOUL
A form of limestone, travertine exhibits beautiful veining and a vibrant texture with a unique patina – in which new details can be discovered with every use.
WHAT IS TRAVERTINE?
Travertine is a limestone that is formed by a precipitation of calcium carbonate, deposited around mineral springs. The travertine stone contains cavities and imprints of plant parts pitted holes may occur. Each travertine stone is unique, and the colors, pattern, and veining will vary on each product. With its captivating veining, lively texture, and distinctive patina that evolves with every use, travertine brings a touch of timeless elegance to any space.
At GUBI we carry three shades of travertine, Neutral White, Warm Taupe, and Burnt Red. In GUBI’s shades of Neutral White, Warm Taupe, or Burnt Red, travertine creates a focal point of differing intensity, bringing personality, naturalness, and tactility to interior spaces. These are groupings of natural colorways and so variations occur between pieces, making each one unique. They can work together in clusters to portray a diverse yet coherent color spectrum or as individual pieces in their own right.
UNIQUE VARIATIONS & NATURAL COLORWAYS
The allure of travertine comes from its inherent variations and natural colorways. No piece of travertine is the same, allowing each slab of travertine stone to have subtle differences, making every installation truly unique and one of a kind. The exquisite details in the stone come from the stone’s organic formation influenced by hot springs and limestone caves over thousands of years. Gas and water escape from the surface during its formation, giving travertine intricate patterns, textures, and distinctive characteristics.
An understated colorway that lets the texture of the stone take centerstage, Neutral White is the minimalist option. Perfect for a calm, quiet space or as a moment's pause in combination with the other colors.
Warm taupe is a beautifully nuanced shade of soft brown-gray, with undertones of green and a wavy striation pattern. It will imbue a sense of calm into even the most vibrant schemes
The fiery tones of Burnt Red are echoed in the flamed pattern of the surface creating an unexpected effect from a natural stone that is sure to make a bold statement at the heart of any interior.
