In the Good Vibes collection by Cevica, featured above, the sophistication of the dark grey hexagons accomplish an equilibrium with the cool colors of the aquamarine patterned hexagons to create a cozy space with a fun, yet simple, flair.
Large format ceramic floor tiles, such as Coverlam by Grespania, mimic natural stone and minerals to help obtain a bright, clean look while attracting natural light.

When there are no divisions in the patterns, limits vanish and the pieces connect with each other to create an ambiance of indivisible fusion.
Intense shades and high contrast pieces create flooring designs that are eclectic, yet full of sophistication. The fierce black and gold shades of the Lookback collection by Land Porcelánico adds style and luxury to a room, making the floor the focal point of the design.
