SOME OF OUR WORK
LIMESTONE FIREPLACE SURROUNDS
Our solid, hand carved limestone fireplace surrounds are quarried and sculpted in Italy, and are based on Victorian, Renaissance and modern designs. As they are made from natural stone, each piece has its own unique characteristics. Whether your fireplace is ornate and expressive or minimalistic and modern, it will be the focal point of the room.
WOOD BURNING OVENS
At Bossio Stone we have three different kinds of Italian wood burning ovens – indoor, outdoor, and the original traditional brick oven. Whether indoors or outdoors, a wood burning oven is sure to become a gathering place for family and friends as you prepare delicious pizza, breads, roasts or vegetables in a fraction of the time a conventional oven takes. All ovens come with an embroidered Forno Mio apron and the Bossio family pizza dough recipe!
Few things enhance the beauty of a new kitchen or bathroom more than stone countertops and vanities. Granite, quartz or marble will create a lasting impression, while providing many years of functional, low maintenance service. Complete your look with coordinating backsplash and floor tile – Bossio Stone and AB Tile & Stone Installations offer you a one stop shopping location. Our on-staff designers are happy to work with you putting it all together!
Bossio Stone specializes in the supply and installation of high quality Italian porcelain tile and several kinds of natural stone. Looking for a particular colour or style? Renovating your kitchen or bathroom? Building and new home? In addition to our own lines of porcelain and ceramic tile, we also have a wide selection of floor, wall and backsplash tile from several manufacturers – including slate, travertine and limestone, marble, glass, and granite tiles. We also carry a full line of grout and stone sealers and cleaners.
New Italian Porcelain Line
We’ve just received a shipment from Saime Ceramica in Italy which included our much anticipated new porcelain tile – Volcano. We are stocking two of the most popular colours: Marrone and Bianco. Marrone is a taupe/grey shade in either matte or semi polished, and Bianco is a soft grey/white matte finish tile. This mid-priced 12 x 24″ tile is ideal for floors or walls. We have also brought in a random strip muretto as part of the Bianco line, which would make a beautiful backsplash or accent trim on the floor. Additionally, a 3/4″ wide x 23 1/4″ strip of Bianco with evenly spaced silver drops is available to add just a touch of sparkle to your project.
Drop in and see our new arrival – stock is excellent!
Fila Products – Clean and Protect
Next time you’re wondering how to remove a stain, protect your grout, stone tiles or countertops, or even if you’re not sure which products to use for routine maintenance, consider a solution from Fila. Manufactured in Italy, this high quality line of products is favoured by many installers. Fila has also recently introduced a number of “Eco” products to the Canadian marketplace – more environmentally friendly choices to clean and protect your tile, grout and stone. We currently stock over 25 Fila products in the renovated office off our main showroom that we affectionately refer to as our “mini Home Depot” – alongside all of the tools and setting materials you’ll need if you’re a DIY customer. Fila – everything you need to care for stone.
Be sure to look for our ad in the March issue of Avenue Magazine – Edmonton’s Best Places to Eat! It features our Red Inside Italian Wood Burning Oven, which is pictured installed in a contemporary kitchen setting. Imagine the enjoyment of having a wood burning oven right in your kitchen as a gathering spot for family and friends – your very own best place to eat! And remember – it does a lot more than just make pizza!

New Italian Lines Arriving!
When we were at the Coverings tile show in Las Vegas recently, we chose a few of our favourite new lines offered by one of our suppliers, Cisa Ceramiche. We are now unloading a sea container of product to add to our inventory! Included is a line of porcelain that looks like hardwood – a really noticeable trend this year and a totally functional choice for our climate (you can come in with snowy boots and not damage your floor!)
Drop by the showroom and see our new samples – we have altered our Saturday hours a wee bit, to accommodate normal weekend shopping patterns. We are now open from noon until 4:00 p.m.
We look forward to seeing you soon!
More New Stuff!
We have, again, expanded our selection of inventoried Italian tile. This month we are thrilled with the addition of a couple of new lines – VINTAGE and NEW YORKER. These are both current styles that were stand outs at the spring tile show.
Vintage is a wood-like plank porcelain tile that comes in 6.5″ x 39″ (stocked in our warehouse), 9.5″ x 39″ and 6″ x 24″. We’ve brought in good inventory of Brun (dark brown), Gris (med./dark grey) and Melange (med. brown). Special order colours include Noir (black/chocolate), Beige, Greige (med./light grey) and Brun anti-slip, which has a rough texture. At $9.50 sq. ft., Vintage is sure to please the homeowner who needs a really durable, non-absorbent floor surface, but who also wants the appearance of natural wood. Vintage may also be installed outdoors.
New Yorker is a 3″ x 12″ textured wall tile that started selling the first day we had a sample in the showroom. It has a soft wavy look, and we’ve brought in four colours: White Bright (gloss), White (matte), Smoke (gloss) and Charcoal (gloss). Most of the time it’s used for backsplash, but there are a number of other creative applications for it as well.
Drop by the showroom and we’d be happy to show you our new additions, or to answer your tile and countertop questions!
