September 24, 2019 (Exmore, Virginia) … New Ravenna, America’s premier designer and manufacturer of mosaics for both residential and commercial installations, is pleased to introduce 20 new designs in the Miraflores Collection by interior designer, Paul Schatz. The handmade mosaics are presented in a variety of colorways using natural stone, glass, and metal, with highlights of 24k gold glass, glazed Basalto, ceramic, and Serenity glass. The materials have been pillowed, tumbled, hand chopped, and cut by hand or waterjet. In this expansion of his original Miraflores collection, Schatz has incorporated his study of classical architecture, extensive travels, and fascination with textiles inspired by indelible childhood memories.
From his Italian godmother’s rag rugs to antique lace from Spain, woven textures inspired Dhurrie,Y Weave, Nomad, Galata, Valencia, Juliana, and Palma. The natural world is represented by the ornate webs of summer tree spiders, which inspired Concentrico. Classical architecture became the basis for the maximalist Corsini, Coronel, Coronel Grande, and graceful Sienna border. Non-directional geometric forms were devised for Centos, Boundary, Echo, Heathrow, and Trevi, while Estrella is rooted in slanting oblique geometry. Venetian honing sculpts the Dolomite marble of Antiquera into a gently pillowed surface. Mallorca and Mallorca Grande are an interplay of material and color to create infinite combinations of Moorish influenced design.
Designer Paul Schatz says of the collection, “All of my work is influenced by my travels to Mediterranean countries and the intricate linear patterns that are found in everything from a palazzo to a delicate spider’s web. My new designs not only explore the flexibility of geometry as a modern design motif but also the unique materials and inventive finishes that are only available at New Ravenna.”
The Miraflores mosaics can be installed on walls and floors, indoors and out. New Ravenna products are available at New Ravenna showrooms throughout the United States, Canada, Europe, Russia, and Dubai. www.newravenna.com
