Saks 5th Ave

Textures Featured: Venus Marble Finish

Description: When we partnered with Saks 5th Avenue, we worked with wonderful interior designers to ensure that the store got customers got the high class experience the store was looking to achieve.

Throughout the entire fourth floor we created a unique Venus Marble finish that can be seen on every soffit, as well as on many walls throughout the store. This texture was created in a subtle, calming mix of grays and whites in a highly polished finish.

We also completed work in the exclusive Saks 5th Avenue Club, which resides on the same floor. In this section of the store, we utilized two finishes: one Strié (linear finish) finish in grey that can be seen in the lobby of the club, and a custom golden Notti finish that can be seen in the hallways leading to the private sitting rooms.

Throughout the fourth floor, but particularly in the club, we strove to create textures that would mimic the luxurious experience that customers should get when they shop at Saks, while at the same time remaining subtle enough to not overwhelm the designer clothes and jewels on display.

Venus Marble Finish



Linen cloth goes back tens of thousands of years; in Pharaonic Egypt it was a symbol of light and purity and was displayed as wealth. Silk, developed in ancient China, was the most sought-after luxury item traded to Europe. Now the texture and luster of these fabrics – with a final coat of shimmering silver or gold – gives any wall a stunning three-dimensional effect and turns it from simple to rich and bold.


“Notti Veneziane” means “Venetian Nights” and this finish evokes it.  At night in Venice, the lanterns come on, creating shimmering reflections in the lagoon, and the city’s ancient plaster walls gleam in the moonlight. Similarly, our metallic pigments change in the light, on a texture as rich as Venetian leather and as velvety as a Venice night...undeniably romantic.


The birthplace of the Italian Renaissance, Tuscany’s heritage endures in its stunning landscapes, its great vineyards, and its charming villages. The Medici villas and Tuscany’s grand cities of Pisa, Lucca Siena and of course Florence are all rich in culture and architectural majesty. This finish, with many colors and textures with which you can customize, brings the essence of this historic region into your home.


Venice is a city of great depth: layer upon layer of history and civilization emerge in every glorious building. This technique uses layers and layers of plaster to create the rich look and feel of three dimensions. Whether you choose Antico Stone, Antico Rain or Antico Vein, each additional layer adds more beauty every time you look.


In Roman mythology, Venus was the goddess of beauty and love. The most famous sculpture of her, the Venus de Milo, was carved in a marble that outlives all time. For our Venus Marble- Effect Finish, we use natural components to create a marble-like appearance – glossy and smooth and with a Venus Metal topcoat that plays with the light in your room. In all, it’s a finish of beauty you will love.


Venetian plaster has no single look or feel. It can look like marble, travertine or limestone. It can be highly polished – matte, satin or glossy – or more tactile. Our Venetian plaster can match your current wall finish or – with endless color options, textures and designs – together we can create a finish that is truly one of a kind. Whatever the choice, it will have a depth and beauty unmatched anywhere.
