As the saying goes, one man’s trash is another’s treasure and the perfect example of this philosophy can be found in our Romboo texture, created from offcuts of the ever-popular Bamboo that was created by Gabriele Salvatori and his father, Alfredo, back in 2000.
Cut into small, rhomboid-shaped tiles, the result is a product that contains an elegant hint of the Orient, with the clean, simple lines of Bamboo sliced on the diagonal. Placing these diamond-like pieces together creates a striking three-dimensional effect in natural stone that becomes even more dramatic with the addition of artfully-placed lighting.
Whether you opt for the cool white of Bianco Carrara, the soft, pale tones of Crema d’Orcia, the unconventional greige of Silk Georgette® or rich chocolatey Pietra d’Avola, Romboo makes for an elegant, original wall solution that draws the eye without becoming overpowering. Perfect for a feature wall in a living room, lobby or restaurant, it also works beautifully in spaces such as bathrooms, where its fluid lines evoke that sense of calm and relaxation long-associated with the Far East.
Last but not least, while you admire your elegant wall, you can also enjoy the knowledge that in choosing Romboo, you are, in some small way, making a contribution to safeguarding our environment, by using a product made of pieces of gorgeous natural stone that would otherwise simply have been thrown away.
