LEXINGTON, KY -- Florida Tile has "turned another corner" with the introduction of MalteseDPceramic wall tile. The wall tilecomplements last year's introduction of MalteseDP Digital Porcelain floor tile, its popularity based on the ability to differentiate from traditional limestone looks via the use of contemporary colors.

According to Marketing Director Sean Cilona, "Through the use of Florida Tile's proprietary DP-Digital Printing, the entire MalteseDP line presents a superior natural stone look with the high shade variation and graphic resolution in superior-performing tile, both porcelain for floors and ceramic for walls."

Initially introduced late last spring, MalteseDP porcelain floor tile was inspired by traditional limestone with small characteristic pits and slight veining. "Now," said Cilona, "we have added the complementary wall tile to complete the line. Effective with this announcement, both products are in stock."

"From the start, we wanted this MalteseDP to be a nod to the modernist style of mid-century American designers like Phillip Johnson and Charles Eames," he went on to say. "The minimalist, yet warm aesthetics of MalteseDP make it the perfect backdrop for the style conscious. A versatile line, at home in a Midwestern suburb, bank lobby, or boutique hotel, the elegant look of limestone coordinates so well with any décor."

Three earthy colors -- Palma Brown, Porto Cream and Roman Grey -- are presented in a smooth natural finish for both porcelain floor tiles and ceramic wall tile. Sizes are 12 x 12, 12 x 24, 18 x 18, and 10 x 13 inches. Decorative accents include a geometric-styled listello, M12 mosaic and full floor and wall bullnose package.

With the exception of select trim, decorative and ceramic pieces, this product line is Made in the U.S. of at least 40% pre-consumer recycled content, is GREENGUARD Certified and Porcelain Tile Certified, and meets the new DCOF AcuTest requirements to be installed in wet areas.
