Certain varieties of natural stone have an intrinsic quality that can immediately lift an interior. Travertine, a stone that was often used by the Romans for grand public buildings, is one such material.

In the foyer of this apartment building, travertine pillars and wall tiles eloquently set the scene, says Original Stone manager David Salenius.

Chosen for its sleek appearance, Efesus Travertine has a fine grain running through its core. The non-reflective surface brings out the pattern in the stone, ensuring there is no need for textural embellishments. This smooth profile contributes to the clean-lined, uncluttered appeal of the room.

"The light-coloured stone enhances the generous proportions of the entrance way, creating a bold architectural statement. It also ensures a light-filled space that is welcoming to both residents and guests," says Salenius.
