Pietra Serena

Pietra Serena is a fine-grained sandstone in a blue-gray colorway quarried outside of Florence, Italy. The stone covers the sidewalks of Florence and is where Steve Jobs saw the uniformly grained and colored stone, which was later incorporated into the Apple Store’s minimalist interiors.

This porcelain version of Pietra Serena replicates the sandstone’s fine-grained aesthetic and colorway. The color palette is a gradient of cool and warm colors, each one becoming more saturated, making it a perfect collection of neutral colors for any interior.
