Beautiful Tiles by Ca'Pietra

 

Ca’ Pietra is a family business and many of us have been in the stone and tile trade for more than 25 years. We have a genuine passion for natural stone and innovative, modern materials. Our mission is to make it as easy as possible for you to use them within home improvement projects.

Natral Stone

From Angora to Zuber, feast your eyes on this fine collection of limestones, travertines, marbles, sandstones, terracottas and slates. There is nothing quite like natural stone – every individual piece a marvel of nature, unique, tactile and beautiful. Limestone alone is infinitely varied before it even comes out of the ground – from almost pure white to gun-metal grey. Then, we work on it – ‘honing’ it smooth, or ‘tumbling’ it coarse and characterful – just as we do with iron-hard marble, or with our travertines which will make you think of Italian farm-houses and churches. Natural stone just gets better with age. You’ll love it as soon as you install it, and you’ll love it even more when it continues to add value to your home many years down the line.

Encaustic Cement

Encaustic tiles were first made in Europe in the late 19th century. They were used to decorate the floors of palaces in St. Petersburg, Gaudi’s distinctive houses in Barcelona, and grand hallways from Paris to Saigon. Today they are to be found in countless chic bars, restaurants and designer-homes in London, Paris and New York. Ca’ Pietra’s collection of hand-made decorative tiles are made using the ‘encaustic’ technique with cement where the pattern is inlaid into the body of the tile, so that the design and colour remain, even as the tile wears. These differ from ceramic tiles, where the surface pattern is the product of the finishing glaze printed on the surface.

Porcelain

Our collection of premium Italian porcelain tiles complements our natural stone collections. There are extra-large slabs with minimal thickness that are not possible with natural stone. Only the most trained of eyes can distinguish these products from natural stone, but they do offer a consistency of tone that, again, makes them different to natural stone.
