We like to think of every piece of the natural materials we use as a little piece of nature and, as such, unique. The inherent beauty that comes from the distinctive veins and asymmetric patterns of genuine stone, and the organic appeal of the authentic knots and grain of real wood is remarkable. We think it is these qualities that make a Stonearth bathroom so special.
Here is a little information to help you understand and appreciate our exceptional products.
Oak has a beautiful golden brown colour and a natural flowing swirl grain. The hardwood is tight grained with some minor colour variations. The American white oak that we use is heavier than its European counterparts. We choose to work with this material because of its typically good colour & grain consistency. Oak is an elegant characterful timber that will look good today and in years to come.
Walnut has a rich chocolate dark brown colour and a good variety of pronounced grain. The medium density hardwood can have occasional distinct growth ring stripe and knots. As one of the most valuable and desirable sustainable timbers in North America, it has exceptional stability and durability. Walnut has a very attractive quality appearance which works exceptionally well in bathrooms and kitchens.
We choose natural stone blocks from select quarries around the world: quarries that can deliver a consistently high quality. With all natural stone products, the occurrence of mineral inclusions is a natural expression of the unique material which makes each and every piece unique.
Travertine offers beige to light brown base colour that is both warm and inviting. The premium vein cut travertine has a characteristic light to deep brown linear veining pattern with occasional non-structural fracture lines. The distinctive feature of travertine includes small voids in the surface of the stone.
The honed and filled finish involves filling with a mixture of stone powder and grout that are colour matched to the stone as closely as possible.
Natural rough edge (only available in Travertine):
The rustic edge and subtle undulated surface is hand-crafted with care for remarkable authenticity.
The sleek black makes a bold statement of sophistication with clean lines and a matt honed finish. This deep black material can contain small round or irregular shaped mineral deposits of a silver or copper colour. Granite is one of the hardest natural materials available and its longevity contributes to its appeal as well as its strength.
This attractive Egyptian marble is characterised by a threadlike asymmetric patterning that is delicate yet distinguished. The overall cream and golden amber colours are infused with occasional fine veining of rose, brown and mocha.
