Chris Lobato’s built-environment artistry involves custom materials and a commitment to train a new generation of old world makers.

What’s old is new again, at least for one Front Range company. Chris Lobato and Old World Designs bring the artistry of ancient Italian plasters and architectural limestone to a modern audience, hungry for distinctive finishes and forms.

Authentic seasoned slaked lime Venetian plaster is the company’s primary finishing material, imported from Trieste, Italy via a West Coast supplier. Plaster layers are applied either to a wet or dry base, depending on the desired outcome. Lobato’s technique and expertise, honed since 2005, has earned his company awards and recognition in a number of million dollar Parade of Homes entries.

  Our metallic products can be used to create striking contemporary looks in a range of colors, from gold and silver to bronze and copper. Solution is our newest water resistant, resin based plaster finish to gain popularity in the American market. This versatile decorative plaster incorporates siloxane resins and repels water, making it ideal for all interior and exterior wall surfaces that are exposed to moisture.

Venetian Plaster
  The founders of Vero Venetian plaster have over four decades of experience manufacturing high quality cementitious products. They searched all over Europe for authentic Venetian plaster products and discovered Rialto, an Italian manufacturer known for the beauty and longevity of their finishes. Vero imports lime and resin plasters direct from this Italian manufacturer, and offers full color design services and expert technical support. Please visit our Venetian finishes page.

  Vero's Italian plaster products set a new standard for quality in the United States. They are unmatched in working characteristics and depth of color, and are ideal for both old-world natural looks and contemporary aesthetics (see FAQs: Mamorino Venetian plaster, Italian plaster technique).

Genuine Carrara Marble from the Dolomite Mountains in Italy
Although interior and exterior wall surfaces are often described as faux wall finishes , there's nothing faux about Vero. Imported from Trieste, Italy, our Venetian plaster finishes are made from genuine seasoned slaked lime and fine Carrara marble aggregate. You can now incorporate these authentic Italian materials into your home or business. You no longer need to travel to Europe to enjoy an authentic piece of Italy.
