At this year's edition of Coverings, the major trade fair dedicated to ceramics and natural stone, which will be held in Orlando, FL, from the April 14-17, 2015, the Lea North America space will showcase an overview of its most recent products.

Among the latest products introduced to enrich the residential catalogue, Crayon is a new collection that is fruit of the company's skill in combining imagination, research and industrial processes. Crayon transfers the authentic texture of natural stone onto porcelain stone, with a raw and aged effect. It is available in two colors, light shade that has hues that vary between white, beige and ivory, and gray shade with variations of hues of gray. The shading creates an intentionally random chromatic effect, aimed at enhancing any setting. Crayon is a "Made in the USA" collection, designed in compliance with U.S. standards (DCOF), which specify the dynamic coefficient of friction.

In line with the emulative capabilities of porcelain stone, Nova, following its preview at Cersaie, has now been reviewed and its color range has been widened. Featuring soft movements and delicate veins obtained through increasingly sophisticated digital printing technologies, this collection offers four formats with a predominantly neutral color palette, based on tones of beige and gray, adaptable to any style and environment. It is resistant to stains, humidity and is easy to clean, making it ideal for a vast range of applications in interiors, non-residential settings and exterior areas, thanks to its non-slip grip finish.

Districtre-interprets and redefines the cement effect, creating an ideal blend of technical performance and aesthetic detail. Four color variations, ranging from beige to gray, offer essential tones that cancel out color, but enhance the structural effect. Four formats, including the big sizes of 90 x 90 and 45 x 90 cm, offer a new approach with an urban style, where designers can express their own personal creativity.

Together with the collections in traditional porcelain stone, a starring role is played, as always, by the Slimtechcollections, the constantly evolving ultra-light material is now available with textures simulating the effects of marble. Timeless Marble offers extremely versatile ultra-slim tiles, ideal in new installations but also perfect for renovations. The graphic variations on the large sized formats (up to 3 x 1 m) and gloss or matte finishes are eye catching and impressive due to the precision in the reproduction of marbles down to the smallest detail. Available in four colors, Timeless Marble represents a new experiment in ceramics, opening and widening the horizons for potential applications, such as in non-residential sectors.
