The product development professionals at tile manufacturer Crossville, Inc. are ceaselessly inspired by Mother Nature, and on occasion, they have fun one-upping her, too.
What color did Crossville invent for the Limestone collection?|
Camel. The Crossville team created this warm, versatile color to round out the palette for the product. All other colors—Sant Andrea, Lipika, Pierre Brune and Midnight—are naturally occurring in quarries around the world.
Crossville’s new Limestone porcelain tile collection is a prime example. This beautiful line features interpretations of real limestone as found around the globe. Because the collection is inspired by samples from some of the world’s more obscure quarries, designers are introduced to a wider range of limestone looks than ever before.
However, the Crossville team didn’t stop there. They added an additional color (see details at right) that Mother Nature missed, and they engineered the line with greater strength, durability and performance than the true stone that inspired it. The Limestone collection by Crossville allows designers to use this timelessly popular look in more applications: commercial or residential, on interior floors and walls or exterior vertical surfaces.
Suffice to say, Mother Nature would be proud. Crossville has created a collection meticulously inspired by nature—yet perfected for today’s savvy designers.
