Yes… yes… we know you’re probably thinking of Bradley Cooper or Lady Gaga, but this Star is a bit different.  This is Étoile!

At Thorntree, everyday we are lucky to be surrounded by exquisite natural stone and fine porcelain.  Then along comes Étoile de Rex, one of the latest lines from Florim, to make our surroundings even more lovely!

What makes Étoile so special?  Not only is it the usual top quality porcelain that Florim produces, but they have again successfully replicated some of the most unique stones in the world.

One of the eye-catching stones they have replicated is called Amazonite.  It is a greenish blue stone that is mainly quarried from Brazil.  In comparing the colors and the detail, Florim has again captured the essence of this beautiful natural stone with its Illusion color.

Illusion, along with new colors Symphonie, and Brown River,  are available in 4 sizes, and two finishes in the 6mm thickness, making it ideal for wall or floor applications.  They are also offered in two mosaic patterns.
