Natural light coming throughrepparttar 140654 glass roof lights up gallery, enhancingrepparttar 140655 fascination ofrepparttar 140656 colours of Pietra Forte from Florence recreated in full-bodied porcelain tile (26"x13" square, fromrepparttar 140657 Format collection).

The two designers had fun withrepparttar 140658 modular formats ofrepparttar 140659 stone: almost as if trying to escaperepparttar 140660 classic right angles of ceramic tile layout patterns, they created a wave that rises uprepparttar 140661 back wall in a gradation of strips. Tall lights of light canvas, simple and comfortable garden furniture and fresh herbal scents completerepparttar 140662 natural scene.
