Well, as I have said before BIG is the choice and flavour in floor tiles. Textures are really inspiring, many of the designers are blending and mixing the cement ‘look’ with vibrant strong stone influences.
And then, just a mention, we manufacture the real TERRAZZO, you know the one that lasts forever!
Perhaps you ran all over it when you were at school, as most schools made use of real terrazzo tiles back in the day. Government loved them too and they lasted for years and years. The look and size of terrazzo has evolved as well and has certainly kept up with the times. You now get terrazzo tiles in large formats and they have the most beautiful colour mixes in their aggregates.
Summer for us means it is time for the great tile fair CERSAIE, held in Bologna, Italy. CERSAIE is the crème de la crème of tile exhibitions where everybody launches the new, the innovative and … yes, sometimes just a little boring. This year was no different.
Colours for this year are definitely the blues, greys, charcoals, greens, browns, creams and, believe it or not, shades of pink! The textures and the marble imitations were pretty good. (Not that you can ever really replace marble, now can we?) The greys are still very strong.
The textures are wonderful. We have tiles that really look like that beautiful rock you saw down by the river. The other trend that has continued into this season is the use of pattern tiles on the floor. The most popular is still the grand black and white designs, however, the coloured mixed patterns are a hit everywhere, especially for wall applications.
Please come in and chat, we are excited and dying to show you our new ranges and share some of the latest trends and technical pointers with you. Just imagine if you win that prize?
