EXMORE, VA -- New Ravenna is pleased to introduce Legend, a collection of seven mosaics designed by Sara Baldwin Design and Paul Schatz. The textural mosaics are handcrafted in Virginia from combinations of natural stone that have been tumbled, polished and hand chopped.
The Legend collection was inspired by ancient textiles, woven to reflect the wonders of geological and cultural landscapes. The subtle palette of colors is determined by the organic qualities of the stone.
"As I travel through open-air markets and exotic souks around the world I am enchanted by vintage textiles that exhibit a certain grace that comes from the patina of age," said Sara Baldwin, founder and creative director of New Ravenna. "These fabrics contain an artisan's narrative within their seams and frayed edges, that we wanted to evoke in mosaic form. We used the muted hues and striations in the stone to create the shadow of time."
"I wanted the mosaics to celebrate diverse cultures by honoring their historic tribal designs," said Paul Schatz, an interior designer with a passion for pattern and Islamic geometric art, of his contribution to the collection.
Each pattern can be fully customized with the client's material preferences to fit the scope of any commercial or residential project. Every mosaic in the Legend collection can be installed indoors or outdoors, on floors and walls. The collection is available at New Ravenna showrooms throughout the U.S., Canada, Europe, Russia and Dubai. For more information, visit www.newravenna.com.
