Need Help


I have to match in a section of flooring and I am going to need more tile than I could find in my clients garage. She does not know were it is from as she just bought house. There were some pieces in the garage and part of a box they came in. I am hoping someone here may recognize the logo of the manufacture.
At least then I might have a chance of tracking it down. I am aware that different lots vary in color, but its the best chance I have.

That looks like the underside of a travertine, a natural stone that has all the voids on the surface filled with some type of resin.

If this is travertine, you will not match exact as it is a natural product, so you really only need to match the thickness and size
