Marble & Travertine
6826 S. MacDill Ave. Tampa, FL 33611
Marble — from the Greek "mármaron", meaning "shining stone" — has been synonymous throughout history with elegance, tradition, fine art and refined taste.
Think Taj Majal or Michaelangelo's "David".
Marble's low index of refraction, allowing light to penetrate the surface before being scattered back out is what gives marble its characteristic waxy look and gives it a certain feeling of being alive.
A very dense and easily polished metamorphic rock, marble is easy to maintain, while its relative softness allows for a wonderful flexibility in both interior and exterior design.
Our marble tile flooring is quarried and cut in Italy, Spain and Turkey and is available in a variety of different colors to suit your artistic and practical tastes. Veined with rivulets of subtle color on varied background of earthy tones, marble tiles from Kesir, Licante and Cabot can offer a subtle or a bold feature in the modern designer's vision, offering colors such as beige, brown, white and even red.
The use of travertine in architecture and design dates back at least to when the Romans mined deposits of this special form of limestone for building temples, aqueducts, monuments, bath complexes and amphitheaters.
Travertine continues to be one of the most frequently used natural stones in modern achitecture, including facades, wall cladding and flooring. It's also a favorite for paving patios and garden paths.
Travertine's characteristic pitting and surface troughs suggest age and wear, giving it a very natural and comfortable look. When filled and polished to a smooth and shiny finish, it becomes almost interchangable with marble and granite.
We here at PANDO FLOORING pride ourselves as quality experts on the wide variety of uses for both of these exquisite natural stones in both residential and commercial applications.
