Firenze Color - Venetian Plasters & Decorative Finishes

About Us

Over the years we have realized that to serve our customers it was imperative to stay on the cutting edge of the decorative finishes industry. We could not take a one size fits all approach to the products we offered. Just as our clientele is unique, our products needed to reflect the sophistication and taste of the end user. Thus in addition to the integrated color Venetian Plasters we initially offered, we made available Low V.O.C. Metallic Paints which have become a favorite of Specifiers and Applicators alike.

Initially Firenze Enterprises, Inc. embarked on the task of promoting Italian lime finishes to North America. It’s vision was to educate both the Plaster and Interior Decorating communities of the value of the often ignored historical products and methods of application that have been used in Europe as traditional wall finishes for centuries. Not only are they environmentally friendly, they are pleasing to the eye. Since that time, Firenzecolor Products have continued to be a favorite among Architects, Interior Designers, and Italian plaster applicators. Our signature product, Fine Marmorino is made of a NATURAL Lime-Based plaster, which contains no synthetics and has a minimum of 42% real Marble Product. Gradually we added many other color integrated plasters so that today Firenze Enterprises offers the widest selection of such decorative plasters and their supplemental components which include:

Marmorino KS, EMKS, Marblestone, Era Veneziana, EVKS, Era Media, Teodorico, Marmur Fine, Marmur Media, Dolomite, Corallo, Ebano, Antiche Patine, Novalux E, Era Penello, Firenzeprimer, Isosil, Fase Silossanica, Venexian, etc.

The introduction of our metallic lines of products such as Dune Gold, Dune Silver, Animamundi, Africa, Swahili Gold, Swahili Silver, Hypnose, Krystalia, Mi-Ku, and RustOn has been a development that has helped us achieve a greater success than we originally thought possible. Something for every ones taste, something for every ones budget.

So we are happy to report that in the year 2012, Firenze Enterprises, Inc. has not only reached its goals but, has surpassed them.
