Finally! The solution to the travertine travails
at Mies’ 860-880 Lake Shore Drive!

Since travertine doesn’t do well in Chicago’s climate – witness the state of the stone at 860-880 Lake Shore Drive –

I have done some research and found the solution. It’s “greaseproof, easy-to-clean, and need not be waxed.”

Vinyl travertine!

But of course.
Who would have thunk it?
Discovered on the back of a 1963 Architectural Forum.


Aren’t you glad the ’60’s are over?
