RAVENNA, ITALY -- After opening a new shop in Istanbul, Turkey, in May, Italian tile manufacturer Sicis says it is ready to double its presence in the Turkish metropolis with a new store in Nisantasi -- set to open mid-autumn this year.

The new store will open in a particularly popular and extravagant area of the city, according to the company. “With its artistic mosaics on the exterior wings, large shop windows, the Cosmati pavements enriched with carpets and marble and glass decorations, and walls covered with a specifically designed texture made with Murano Smalto, Colibrì and marble, will entice shoppers to come in and browse,” reports the company.
