Okay, I know we just posted an entry about Michael S. Smith for Ann Sacks -- but we have to show you his latest collection -- Michael S. Smith Cosmati.  I told you we were obsessed with his work -- I wasn't kidding!  The man has TASTE...

Michael S. Smith Cosmati is an exclusive hand-crafted stone mosaic program designed by one of the industry's most respected talents. The collection offers a breathtaking range of designs that draw inspiration from various elements of Greek, Moroccan and Parisian antiquities. Meticulously cut by water-jet and then painstakingly assembled by hand, the grand scale of Cosmati mosaics is most at home in residential foyers or hotel lobbies. --
These stone mosaics are truly striking, and they really epitomize Michael S. Smith's classic, clean style.  Take a look at these samples...
alhambra in ivory cream, crema marfil, honey onyx, calacatta oro and lagos blue

chanilly in statuario, verde serpe and bianco carrara

chantes in timber beige, calacatta oro, timber grey and dark umber

crete in marino blue, white thassos and blue celeste

emilio grid in nero marquina and morning rose

fez in gold brown, russet brown, botticino and dark onyx

palais royale in calacatta oro, bianco carrara, marino blue, nero panthera, bardiglio medium and dark bardiglio

valencia in bianco carrara, white thassos and bianco fether

venice in blue macauba, white thassos, dark bardiglio and blue celeste

I'm sure these stone mosaics work best on a grand scale, so you can really appreciate the intricacy of their designs.  The Ann Sacks' website mentions that they work beautifully in foyers, hotel lobbies, etc., but look at how spectacular these stone mosaics look in the bath...
