Named after the Italian town, Tivoli, travertine can be found in both modern domestic homes and world-famous architectural landmarks such as Rome’s Colosseum. Having started as a material used only for sculptures and ornate mouldings, Travertine as paving hasn’t been around for all that long but in the last few years it has become one of the more widely used. Belonging to the Limestone family, travertine is a sedimentary rock which boasts a beautifully natural finish featuring small pitted holes. This is a result of carbon dioxide rich water passing through the rocks over many years.
