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.
For more than 35 years Mario Ferazzoli & Son, Inc. has been fabricating marble and granite projects for the south Florida market. It’s a solid trade with a reliable demand.
Mike and Gina Haase have lived in Ventura, CA many years raising a healthy family and operating a successful local business. They’re ocean lovers and avid anglers who were looking for a durable, eco-friendly material for their outdoor kitchen. From their backyard the couple enjoys sweeping vistas of the Pacific Ocean and the generous California sunshine.
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.”
It was a tough job, sifting through beautiful residential and commercial projects featuring Vetrazzo: curved islands, sparkling bathroom vanities, corporate kitchens and even a veteranarian hospital. But we perservered to bring you a Vetrazzo project that is as sustainable as it is beatiful. (You're going to want to move right in just for the roof deck alone.)
Thank you to all our entrants and congratulations to our winner, Arkin Tilt Architects!
With increasing chatter in the media about climate change and global warming, the growing trend among architects and designers has been to use green products in commercial settings.
New York City-based interior designer Tamara Eaton has built quite the name for herself in the city that never sleeps. Born in Charlottesville, VA, Eaton spent much of her childhood moving around the world and was exposed to a range of cultures, design aesthetics and cityscapes by the time she reached her teen years.
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.
Who cares about a groundhog... The official sign of Spring has arrived, Bistro Green Vetrazzo Slabs.
