Travertine Limestone

Travertine is a natural stone used for furniture, tiles, and cladding. It is well suited to external uses that demand a durable stone that offers alternative colors, patterns, and characteristics to marble.

The Davani Group sources travertine direct from the quarry for use in a wide variety of furniture, tiles, cladding, and pavers.

What is Travertine?

Travertine, which is often marketed as marble or travertine marble, is not, in fact, a type of marble. Like marble, it is a natural stone formed from limestone. But unlike marble, travertine is a sedimentary rock deposited by hot springs heated by geothermal energy. This process of formation gives travertine its elegant layered pattern and porous surface.


Travertine is available in a diverse array of colors due to the presence of minerals during its formation. As such, it is most often found in beautiful earth tones such beige, brown, red, orange, and yellow. Travertine ranges in color from the creams of Italian Travertino Alabastrino to the dark browns of Travertino Bronzo to the rich reds of Travertino Rosso Persiano.


It is sometimes referred to as “Roman Travertine” due to its extensive use in architecture and construction by the ancient Romans. It is most commonly sourced from across Italy, but can also be found in Turkey, Iran, China, and the Central Americas.

Travertine Floors

Travertine is an excellent – and lower cost – alternative to marble for internal flooring, including kitchen and bathroom floors. Travertine is a hard-wearing natural stone, which makes it perfect for floors that see a lot of traffic or that will be exposed to moisture and variations in temperature.


The Davani Group offers many different natural stone floor tile designs that are available in travertine, including the Hana, Ducale, and Picto collections.

Travertine Pavers

Travertine pavers or paving stones are an easily installed and maintained external flooring solution. Travertine pavers are widely used in sunny locations because travertine reflects less sunlight than some other types of natural stone and is able to stay cool in direct sunlight.


Its porous surface is naturally non-slip, making travertine pavers ideal for flooring around swimming pools, on garden paths and patios, and everywhere robust and beautiful natural stone paving is required.

Travertine Patio

Because of its resilience to heat, cold, frost, and wet, travertine is a popular choice for patios and other outdoor expanses of natural stone, particularly Italian and Turkish travertine. Travertine pavers and tiles are available in many different colors and patterns to suit designs ranging from classical to rustic to modern minimalist.


In addition to travertine floor tiles, pavers, and tables, The Davani Group offers designer and custom furniture fabricated in many types and colors of travertine, including travertine seating, bathroom furniture, and case goods.
