What makes Chapter 9 Pietra Opus a unique offering in the Jeffrey Court list of chapters?
Pietra Opus is undoubtedly Jeffrey Court’s flagship chapter for natural stone. This new update of Pietra Opus showcases a compilation of field tiles and mosaics in a beautiful four marble color palette, complemented by their rustic slate and quartz counter parts.
What are the key features of Chapter 9 Pietra Opus?
Our team of product designers looked at how we could make this chapter stand the test of time, meanwhile add a bit of flare and sophistication to this cornerstone chapter. In doing so we removed travertines from this collection and replaced them with four up-market marble selections, which opened up new design possibilities. The color palette is made up of seven natural stones, five marbles and two rustics: Stonehedge Grey, Light Emperador, Almond Cream, Iceberg, Onyx, Slate, and Quartz. The fields are offered in two sizes in the marbles – a 4” x 8” subway tile, and a 6” x 18” field tile. The slate, quartz and onyx field tiles are only available in a 4” x 8.” Also included are 15 all new mosaics to complement their field tile counterparts. Ranging from all new modern layouts and 3D mosaics in marble to metal and stone compilations in rustic stone, the all new mosaics found in this chapter are a great complement to our popular classics such as Fire & Ice, and stone with glass mosaics now known as “Winward Plains.” As with all Jeffrey Court Chapters, Pietra Opus includes coordinating trim pieces: A 3/4” x 12” dome, and a 1-3/4” x 12” crown are available all field colors except quartz.
Where can this collection be used?
Chapter 9 Pietra Opus mosaics are designed for interior wall use: kitchen & bath walls, backsplashes, fireplace surrounds, or any other interior wall space were typical wall tiles are used. The field tiles can be used for light duty flooring. Please Note: Jeffrey Court highly recommends sealing all natural stone tiles with a high quality sealer prior to grouting to ensure
easy cleaning and as part of a maintenance regimen. Consult your sealer manufacturer for
reapplication recommendations as part of an ongoing maintenance routine.
Are there any special design or installation tips for Chapter 9 Pietra Opus?
Chapter 9 Pietra Opus Collection reflects the shade variations associated with natural stone. As with all natural stone tiles, we strongly recommend laying out and blending the tiles prior to installation. This step will ensure a proper color blend in order to achieve a classic look for your installation. The Ridgerock mosaic does not require grouting to achieve a uniform look. Copper Mine & Silver Mine Mosaics: Over time, all copper will patina due to oxidation (darkens or turns dark green). Do not use acids, alkalines, strippers, or solvent based sealers on the copper as it may remove the antiquing, and may cause stainless steel to rust. Once the copper patina is damaged or removed, or stainless steel has been damaged due to the use of aforementioned chemicals, it cannot be repaired or replaced. All metal can scratch and dent. Please Note: Jeffrey Court highly recommends sealing all natural stone tiles with a high quality sealer prior to grouting to ensure an easy cleaning and as part of a maintenance regimen. Consult your sealer manufacturer for reapplication recommendations as part of an ongoing maintenance routine.
