Private Residence Piedmont
Since our texture Raw, designed by Piero Lissoni, was created in 2011, we’ve seen it used in a host of inspiring ways in projects all over the world. And a stunning project completed in 2015 gives it yet another dimension. Italian interior designer Marco Carini chose it not only for the walls of a bathroom in a private villa near Como, Italy, but also for the floor.
“I love the idea that when you tread on it, you feel as though you’re enjoying a constant foot massage” explains the designer, who, working with architect Chicco Bestetti, chose the colour Silk Georgette® for its unique “greige” colouring and its intriguing veined effect which plays with the shifts in sunlight.
Also used was Pietra d’Avola for the fireplace, living room and stairs, whilst outside a pathway composed of slats in mixed shades of Travertine was laid. We also provided random lengths of heavily chiselled Travertine for the pool area.
