Studio Vertu’s fresco-style marble coasters, tiles, murals and other home décor items are made of Italian Botticino Marble, quarried in Verona, Italy. Each tile is hand-printed, and the available images range from cheeky wine and liquor themed coasters to florals so sweet you’d set your granny’s cup of tea down on them. Owner Mark Schmidt developed the printing process for Studio Vertu’s marble coasters in 1995 in Cincinnati, Ohio, and they were so successful that the Vertu range has grown to include magnets, trivets, clocks, journals, glass plates, canisters, framed pieces and printed maple and aluminum wall décor. The marble tiles double as wall décor and murals, with a rustic, Renaissance-fresco feel that perfectly complements a relaxing night in with a glass of wine and the windows thrown wide open to the summer air.
