If travertine brings to mind sun-drenched villas in the Italian countryside, there’s a good reason for that. Travertine has long been the building material of choice for the region with the name itself deriving from areas surrounding Tivoli. Though popularized in “Bel Paese” (the beautiful country), travertine forms all over the world, typically in limestone caves or at the mouth of hot springs. The organic, oftentimes rustic look of travertine makes it an exceptional surface for any design where a warm, old-world element is sought.
