Ask Bob. Contessa Collection.

 

 

Contessa Seville Silver Leaf

 

Q: Hello Bob,

I love the Contessa tile.  I am thinking about using the tile in my kitchen as  a backsplash but I am wondering if it can withstand the heat and any acid ingredients.  How is it sealed and could the silver leaf peel off?

Regards, Karen

A: Great question Karen!

Contessa is one of our most popular collections and the silver leaf finish is so unique. The Contessa Metallic finish tiles are pre-sealed. For sealing the grout or resealing the tiles use only water based sealers.  These tiles are great for kitchen backsplashes but not directly behind a cooktop.  Stainless steel or another, more heat resistant, tile would be appropriate.  For cleaning:  Non abrasive, pH balanced cleaners, and a soft sponge.

Jet Set.

 

 

 

Jet set

jet–set adjective

jet–set·ter noun

jet–set·ting adjective

A fashionable social set composed of wealthy people who travel frequently by jetliner to parties and resorts.

Origin:
1950–55

 

We celebrate the Jet Set with our newest collection of marble tile mosaics of the same name. The collection of luxurious marble patterns recalls the glamorous 1950’s and 60’s when the rich and famous hop scotched across the globe, following the good life from St. Tropez to Palm Springs. The villas were stylish, the women beautiful, the men handsome, the pools sparkling blue and the champagne always flowed.

Come with us and be swept away to a time when flight attendants were called Stewardesses, Mai Tai’s were the drink of choice, and everything sounded better when Frank sang it. Grab your suitcase and hop on board, you won’t even need a boarding pass!
