CFO/Controller

New Ravenna endeavors to make residences and commercial buildings feel beautiful, renewed, and connected through a unique, exciting, and transformative design experience.

ARTISTIC SPACES

Our products are not only trendsetting; they bring art to practical spaces. Design is in our DNA. New artistic collections and innovative product lines are released each year. In addition, each product can be customized to meet the needs of any customer — tile can be tumbled, honed, or treated to create distinctive styles, subtle shade variations, and textures. The final product is a custom, one-of-a-kind work of art in mosaic tile, which often incorporates the designs of architects, interior designers, and their clients.

New Ravenna custom stone and glass mosaics can be found in celebrity homes, restaurants, hotels, and corporate offices around the world. You can order New Ravenna through nearly 200 exclusive designer showrooms in the US and internationally.
