Miami, FL March 2017 – Tile of Spain, the association of Spanish ceramic tile manufacturers, recently debuted new product collections at CEVISAMA 2017, the International Ceramic Tile Fair, in Valencia, Spain. From graphic patterns and scalloped shapes, to oxidized metal and distressed wood look effects, the new tile collections bring design to a whole other level.
Highlights of the spring tile trends and new Tile of Spain products showcased at CEVISAMA 2017 include:
Inspired by marble from ancient Greek and Roman times, Bestile Cala Dark is a classical pattern that exudes natural beauty. This 60 x 120 porcelain tile offers the purity and refinement of a white marble in a durable tile.
CAS Ceramica presents a new collection designed by American graphic designer David Carson. Inspired by Carson’s home in the Caribbean – the sun, surf, ocean, moon and stars – the collection of 20 x 20 cm tiles combines graphic illustrations with glossy, intense blues and whites.
Coralstone from Equipe draws its inspiration from the naturalness of stone to the point of irregularity in the finish in a smooth way. With matte and non-slip finishes, it is porcelain stoneware of great graphic variation that imitates the natural stone with inserts of corals and fossils. Available in 8” x 8” square and 11 1/2” x 10” hexagon formats in gray and black.
The Gayafores Olson series features soft neutral tones of white, grey and honey. This Nordic style wood-look tile offers the appearance of untreated wood with water damage, but in a beautiful, natural way. The 15 x 90 cm board format can be installed in a variety of ways, including in herringbone patterns.
The wide range of Grespania Coverlam products expands with the rich metallic texture of the new Industrial series in Corten and Iron colors.
