2017 Year in Review: 8 Recycled Glass Kitchens, Bars + Islands

Posted by Steven Schrenk on Dec 21, 2017 12:55:59 PM

As the year comes to a close, we are always excited to reflect on the many unique and creative Vetrazzo projects that were completed in 2017. From beachside bungalows to celebrity kitchens and more, we spotted Vetrazzo in all its many colors and forms from coast to coast. It turns out, homeowners love the look as much as they love the craftsmanship and heart behind this eco-friendly material. And one designer, Laura Umansky, fell so hard for the material that she designed four of her own custom Vetrazzo color mixes and installed her favorite in two of her home kitchens.

Creative Kitchen Storage With a Bold Color Palette

Posted by Steven Schrenk on Dec 2, 2016 10:51:59 AM

What do you give a homeowner who loves bold primary colors? A clean white canvas and ALL the cobalt blue. 

Located in beachfront Tequesta, Fl, Patty Anderson of Waterview Kitchens is used to designing bright coastal kitchens with a sea glass look and feel. But this Jupiter, Fl luxury beach condo packed the most color punch of them all. The ocean loving homeowner Gayle Fravel already had a bold palette of yellow, blue and red against crisp white. So when it came time to do a kitchen update her daughter Lindsey Diebler who is an interior designer said, “Mom, you have got to check out Vetrazzo.”

Artfully Eco-Friendly Countertops’ Design Inspiration Stems from Nature, Colors

Posted by Vetrazzo on May 1, 2015 3:11:00 PM

 

 

At Vetrazzo, our product inspiration can come from just about anywhere. Usually, it starts with, well…trash from last night’s party. But the end product is much more than that. We begin the process with recycling – taking something that people have thrown out, tossed aside, and then, through that magic of technology and design, we take what was once considered garbage and turn it into something that looks a whole lot more like a work of art.
