When national retailer Earth Bound Trading planned a redesign of its stores stretching from Arizona to Key West, they knew a distinctive tile would be needed. The product selected was Mediterranea’s Mountain Timber — a marriage of a tile to a retailer featuring down-to-earth products. Beginning with its location at the Storebriar Mall in Frisco, TX, Earth Bound Trading is installing Mediterranea’s Mountain Timber on the facade of its stores as part of ongoing renovations.
“Earth Bound Trading had specific requirements for the tile to be featured on the front of its stores,” said George Larrazabal, director of sales for Mediterranea. “The Mountain Timber series evokes the true free spirit of Earth Bound Trading – vibrant, individualistic and unique. The result is a porcelain tile look you won’t see anywhere else.”
Mountain Timber offers a distinct vision for a tile series – featuring an array of fossilized wood colors. Mountain Timber mirrors the look of lumber – transformed while buried underground through the ages – only to be rediscovered in our time as a fossilized stone. While such a natural product would be impossible to quarry for manufacture and distribution, Mediterranea has used its exclusive Dynamic HD Imaging technology to recreate this achievement of nature in a glazed porcelain tile series.
Mountain Timber comes in two fully-rectified sizes of 6” x 24” and 12” x 24”, along with 2” x 2” mesh-backed mosaics. Available in three colors, Mountain Timber offers a distinctive wood-look option for architects, designers and homeowners.
For over a decade, Mediterranea, Italian-based developers and craftsmen have been designing and producing tile in collaboration with the world’s top factories in Italy, Spain, Brazil, Turkey, Argentina and the United States. Mediterranea has the unrivaled ability to match its products with the right manufacturer, engaging its competition with cutting-edge technological capabilities, competitive pricing and outstanding U.S.-based service.
