Mediterranea recently introduced its all-new Hammock series, which is inspired by the relaxed feel and design perfection first seen by explorers whom roamed the Earth centuries ago.

First devised by Native Americans, hammocks were found by Christopher Columbus under the shady palms of the Bahamian islands. Just as the first hammocks were perfectly conceived for comfort and relaxation, Mediterranea's Hammock series features a carefully balanced mixture of wood graphics to create a color-body porcelain tile worthy of its stunning 8- x 48-inch size.

Hammock represents the elusive "sweet spot" in wood-look porcelain tile. Utilizing the company's exclusive Dynamic HD Imaging™ technology to replicate the fine features of weathered wood, Hammock is precision rectified to minimize grout joints, and is manufactured in four colors -- Sand, Palm, Oyster and Pearl. Made with over 65% recycled content and unmatched durability, Hammock's lifespan will far outlast laminate, hardwood and other flooring surfaces, making it the environmental choice as well.

The look of wood never goes out of style -- and Hammock delivers a look that will always be fashionable. You've found the perfect tile; now it's time to savor the cool breeze, pour an iced tea and unwind with Hammock from Mediterranea.
