the classic italian beauty

a majestic material for versatile design statements

our carrara tile collection is a classic white stone with a mixed fleuri & vein cut that blend to create subtle yet distinctive patterns. perfect for the contemporary setting and an elegant surface material for bathrooms, kitchens and floor.

why we love carrara

taking its name from the luminous white mountains spiraling out of the ground surrounding carrara, italy, carrara marble has had a staggering history. continuously mined from these mountains, carrara has been used by the romans onwards. this majestic stone has adorned palaces and cathedrals–and now contemporary homes and public spaces–an enduring, classic mark of good taste.

the pinnacle of fine stone

inspiring art, architecture and design since the roman empire, adorning the pantheon and forming rome's trajan column… carrara would inspire michelangelo’s pieta and leonardo’s david. seen as a mark of wealth, the greeks and romans used it in their homes and this material flourished again with the renaissance and victorian eras and once again today it enjoys enduring appeal. this is a stone for the ages.

read before you buy this tile

do i need to seal carrara tiles?

like most natural stone, carrara requires sealing (before & after grouting) to prevent staining and help with repelling water.

if your tile is porous or if using a dark grout, clé recommends Stonetech Heavy Duty Sealer from laticrete as a pre-grout treatment.

for all other sealing and protecting, clé recommends Stonetech BulletProof Sealer from laticrete.

 for more information about sealing please see our carrara installation & maintenance guides.

do you offer trim for your carrara tile?

at clé we follow the international model of no trim and highly recommend our clients to do the same. below are the trim alternatives we recommend for this collection.

- if your project needs to turn a corner either inwardly or outwardly, mitering the tiles to meet seamlessly in a corner gives it the cleanest, crafted finish.
- a visible stone tile edge can be honed to make the side match the main surface of the tile.
 - like with any of our tiles, you can also build out the sheetrock so that the surface of the finished sheetrock is flush with the surface of the tile.

for more detailed recommendations about trim, please see our trim guide.

how do i take care of my carrara tiles?

marble is chemically sensitive so only mild pH neutral cleaners should be used.

 clé recommends laticrete cleaning products, please see our carrara installation & maintenance guide for more information.

what type of finish should i expect with this collection?

 our carrara tiles come with a smooth-matte, honed surface. honing is a process in which the surface is ground to the level that gives the tile a smooth matte finish.

what types and levels of variation and imperfections should i expect?

carrara is a natural stone and will exhibit variation in color and shade.

due to the natural materials and production process of carrara tiles, there will
