The Varenna porcelain tile captures the classic look of marble using an extraordinary technology and cutting-edge manufacturing techniques. It is manufactured by Gardenia Orchidea in Italy.

Here is how the Varenna Series brochure describes the collection:

"The natural shades and the perfectly balanced veining of the slabs, reflect the prestige and noble soul of splendid Italian locations such as Varenna, with its enchanting natural landscapes. It is the history and architecture of these places that inspired the Gardenia research laboratory to create a material in which the expressive power of stone is so superbly conveyed."

In the image below, you see the 2x2 Varenna Mosaic tile sheets which can be used for wall coverings as well as outdoor walls and columns and traditional shower floors. It's quite versatile, whether for a large setting or a smaller one.

The Varenna Series also comes with a random linear mosaic that can be as versatile as the 2x2 mosaic. This linear mosaic is available in a 13x13 sheet with multiple sizes of tile on a sheet. You have so many possibilities to explore with the Varenna Series of porcelain tile! Whether it's using it on a wall or a backsplash, I think you'll find that it will really enhance a room with the look of natural stone.

These tiles are easy to lay and require no extraordinary maintenance as compared to a natural stone product. These tiles are made using innovative inkjet digital printing technology, making it possible to reproduce a wide variation of stone look facings.
