Island Stone's Fresh Take on Marble Mosaic Tile
(Santa Cruz, CA, September 23, 2019) Spindrift Marble, the mosaic tiles from Island Stone that offer a different approach to traditional marble tiles, with smooth, organic forms instead of hard edges and straight lines, has added two colors — Nebula and Tempest. Along with shape, color plays a crucial role in the tiles’ artistic beauty. The new hues join the existing Carrara Marble to work with a range of room color schemes and designs, giving designers more freedom to create looks from subtle to lively and bold.

Reminiscent of the metamorphosis that creates natural stone and emulating the made-by-nature essence of the line, Nebula features the visual textures of fossils, swirls, and other patterns in grey, highlighted with whites and some black. Tempest blends black with greys, juxtaposing light finishes to create an air of mystery and depth; the effect allows designers to add on-trend dark accents without feeling as heavy as plain black options might be. The line’s original Carrara Marble colorway offers the lavish, classic aesthetic of Italian Carrara marble, with varying degrees of lighter greys and white highlights that provide more life than plain white.

“Our newest Spindrift Marble colors offer a refreshing take on a familiar favorite, part of a larger trend we’re seeing toward more creative uses of marble,” said Jeff Nibler, COO and president of sales for Island Stone. “The unique new colorways combine to capture the natural beauty of marble in new, more playful ways. Now homeowners can have this classic, luxurious look in their homes, even if their kitchen or bath isn’t suited to the contemporary influences of traditional light marble.”

The next-generation colorways now give the company’s popular Spindrift Marble mosaics three options to create a relaxed ambiance that the pebble-shaped tiles exude while still retaining an upscale appearance. The structured placement of the pebble allows for a consistent and measured grout joint, enhancing the quality and finish of the product without compromising the natural and random look. Each stone is meticulously shaped and crafted into mosaic tiles measuring 11-3/4” square by 1/4” thick. Spindrift Marble tiles are suitable for walls, showers, and freeze/thaw areas.
