The cold is gone, the hot weather is back, and the true African spirit Beats with the ‘look’ of stone. The large format in tiles is definitely taking hold of the market. The 60×120 format and 80×80 including other larger formats are increasingly in demand. This growing trend is not just for designers but is being enjoyed by architects and developers. When it comes to selection, the natural stone look is in! The polished porcelain marbles are available in all shades, from the romantic smoky shades to the bright fresh sophisticated Carrara’s and finally, back to the now trending softer creamy tones. Another trend that really hit the overseas market and is flooding through South Africa with vengeance, is the Terrazzo look.
