There are few things in life that seem to flow quite as nicely with a room’s décor than the comfort one feels when entering. The allurement and charisma of a room set the entertaining temper for relaxation and inspiration. And what better source for such tranquility than the natural tones one gets from nature. With the Marazzi Jade slate alternative line each piece seems to be its very own original Le guitariste. A picturesque Pablo Picasso from the providence of north Alabama.
“Marazzi Jade is manufactured with a softened and furnished look. It’s finished with a lustrous visual that’s offered in four natural slate tones…With none of these tones being muted it allows the tile to retain the distinct natural coloration that is seen in a true natural slate. The unique thing, however, is that you can walk barefoot on it and you won’t feel the clefting that you would with true natural slate,” says a Marazzi representative.

“The earth tones would pair well with rustic décor, especially in a master bath shower or powder room with a the more weathered woodwork that is so popular now. It would be equally lovely with a darker heavy traditional woodwork and cabinetry to add a more Mediterranean feel when used in conjunction with the smaller 1×1 mosaic as a detail feature,” according to designer Lisa Gillespie of Lisa Gillespie Interior Designer.
“This tile would also be lovely with stainless steel and glass to balance an edgy industrial look in a modern kitchen with its’ warmer tones of rich browns, golds and taupes. Evoking the desert and more arid climates. Similarly it can help soften the formality of a more refined decor by bringing in a more casual attitude. It would be beautiful in a protected outdoor space such as patio kitchen or outdoor fireplace face,” adds Gillespie.
So, it’s a tile that is not only versatile, but functional. “Jade’s satiny gem-like surface makes it very simple to clean and it’s ideal for any floor or wall installs whether it’s residential or light commercial.
And since it’s a glazed porcelain the raw material are tight faced which doesn’t allow it to absorb any moisture over .05%. Its liquid glass top coating gives it a stone protecting. However, since it’s not a through-body coloring (meaning the color does not go throughout the tile’s body) it helps keeps the price down,” says Marazzi representative.
“Since this is a natural stone look, the application potential can traverse both modern applications as well as more traditional interiors. Natural stone tiles with the scale and color variation such as the Marazzi Jade tile line can add a sophisticated element to a room with more rustic design elements and yet it’s equally capable of lending warmth and charm to a more refined decor or a more contemporary interior. A good choice for a crossover tile to bring visual interest and a natural element to a variety of design schemes,” says Gillespie.
