Venetian polished plaster is a textured wall covering.

It was named after its use in Venice, but the material has been around since the days of Ancient Egypt. It is meant to look like natural stone with marble effects and is actually a combination of marble dust, lime and pigments.


Several layers have to be applied and burnished with special trowels to reveal all the tones and the depth of its beautiful mineral aspect.

The burnishing will also create a unique smooth and polished surface.

The final aspect can be natural or glossy, and the surface can be waxed.

Once protected, the Venetian polished plaster can be used in wet areas such as bathrooms and kitchens.

KOUBI DESIGN creates and manufactures it's own authentic lime polished plaster :

the beautiful grassello lucidato, the classic Marmorino (medium and coarse)

are made with the finest matured lime putty, marble powder and 100% natural ingredients.


Without any synthetic additives, like acrylic, our venetian polished plaster is more flexible, smoother, softer to the touch and far more resistant and durable.
