Travertine & Rosso Levanto marble elements by Montroi are essential design crafts to cherish home scents. It is said that true art can’t be rushed: a team of five skilled artisans dedicate four days to perfectly curate, design, and shape each element from two kilograms of marble, making each piece unique. From the excavation of raw materials to the carving and polishing of finished pieces, each step in the process is a labor of love that transforms stone into a timeless work of art.
Rosso Levanto marble has a rich and storied history that stretches back centuries. The stone is named after the small town of Levanto in the Liguria region of Italy, where it has been quarried since the ancient Silk Route. During the Renaissance era, Rosso Levanto marble experienced a resurgence in popularity, with many famous artists and craftsman incorporating it into their works.
Valued for its unique burgundy tones and swirling white veins Michelangelo used Rosso Levanto marble in the design of the Medici Chapel in Florence, Italy. Carved from natural stone to create an effortlessly beautiful & simplistic design, each marble element celebrates imperfections from nature.
Travertine pieces are carved from solid travertine, a durable marble-like limestone rock. Unlike polished stones, travertine marble has a natural texture that gives depth and character to its surface. The stone’s natural pits and pores add to its organic feel, making it a unique and tactile material.
