Toronto, Ontario Canada (PressExposure) September 24, 2007 -- Artisan Mosaics of Toronto has relaunched their mosaic medallion website in response to requests for more online information about their product line. Artisanâs new website features four on-line galleries of mosaic medallions: Tumbled marble, Solid Polished Marble, Kitchen Backsplash, and Marble Carpets. These galleries will aid designers and trades people, as well as their clients, in selecting interior and exterior mosaic medallions for commercial and residential applications.
There is a great deal of interest today in this ancient form of art. Tiny, hand-cut pieces of marble or slate, laboriously organized into stunning patterns and motifs. Mosaics are currently used as the centerpiece of flooring, set in hardwood or tile; wallcover and backsplash; tabletops; and patios.
âNot everyone understands what a designer or decorator means by âmosaicsâ. Our new site offers a visual insight and provides consumers with a wide array of mosaic medallions to choose from,â state Artisan founder, Dean Avey. The new site also offers design suggestions for unique residential, commercial and institutional applications of mosaics.
"An aging population makes accessibility a real concern," says Avey, "Mosaic medallions set level with traditional flooring like hardwood or tile, give the rich look and feel of a carpet or area rug without the tripping hazard. Mosaic marble carpets are perfect for high traffic areas and wheelchair accessible homes and facilities."
