Worn, consumed, used, revived, reused, the Industria series from Anatolia Tile & Stone is the product of an urban industrial center where function, dependability and practicality rule. A design infused with the intricacies of individual aggregate, weathered over time is the soul of this modern, large-format collection. Inspired by concrete, Industria colorbody porcelain tile is available in four colors and several sizes, including 24 x 48, 32 x 32, 24 x 24 and 12 x 24 inches, all rectified, along with bullnose 3- x 24- and 2- x 2-inch mosaics.
Ideology from American Olean brings the history of white marble and contemporary design together. Updated, larger sizes of 24- x 48- and 24- x-24-inch floor tiles, as well as a 24-x 24-inch decorative floor accent tile option, lets designers and homeowners insert marble veining.
The new Calacatta Aries from Daltile’s Panoramic Porcelain Surfaces line is a great example of elevated printing technology and sophisticated design, inspired by Italian marble. This oversized 10-foot, 7-inch-long x 5-foot, 4-inch-wide porcelain slab looks incredibly realistic. The extraordinary visual coupled with virtually no maintenance and superior durability make it an excellent choice for wall, floor and countertop applications.
Boutique is a premier tile from Del Conca USA, which was designed to replicate the beautiful intricacies of actual marble. Sophisticated and elegant, these large-format tiles are coated in a beautiful, shiny finish to obtain a level of reflection and chromatic intensity that cannot be matched. The collection has been crafted in four colors and is available in three sizes — 120 x 120, 60 x 120 and 60 x 60 inches.
Norway from Ege Seramik is the latest series of natural porcelain tiles. The glazed porcelain collection is defined by the look of natural marble, with bold and striking veins. The 24- x 48- and 24- x 24-inch fully polished floor tiles can be partnered with complementing 12- x 24-inch field tiles, along with Oslo and Tropicana deco tiles, which feature a three-dimensional mosaic effect.
Tuscan Villa HDP by Florida Tile is a travertine-inspired porcelain tile collection with a modern palette and clean edges. The undulations on the surface create a subtle, timeworn texture that transports you to the relaxed atmosphere of Tuscany. Three fresh color choices — Arezzo Ivory, Cortona Beige and Florence Silver — are available in 6- x 6-, 12- x 12- and 12- x 24-inch field tiles; a 36-piece mosaic; and a 3- x 12-inch bullnose.
One of the biggest movements in design today is a shift towards clean, contemporary interiors, and nothing brings this concept to life better than Tomei Modules by Lunada Bay Tile. The 11 hues can be used alone or can be combined to create a more dynamic arrangement. Each color is available in a natural (glossy) or silk (matte) finish. The collection comes in four sizes: 6 x 9, 6 x 12, 9 x 18 and 12 x 18 inches.
Inspired by dark-colored, fine-grained basalt, Marazzi’s new Basalto collection offers smooth monochromatic style. Basalto is available in four neutral colors in two standard formats: 12 x 24 and 24 x 24 inches. The collection also offers 2-cm-thick outdoor pavers in 32 x 32 and 20 x 40 inches. Crafted with Italian precision, Basalto is a colorbody porcelain tile that will stand the test of the ages.
Mediterranea’s Atlantis is a porcelain tile series that pays homage to the imagination of both explorers and designers. Made in the U.S., each tile is designed with rich colorations to perfectly blend together when installed, bringing the “lost world” of Atlantis to life. Atlantis is paired with unique deco tiles called Poseidon, which can be mixed as accent tiles or utilized on their own. The graphic background randomly shifts within each tile, offering a blend of colors and patterns. Mosaic sheets and bullnose trim are available.
MSI’s large-format 24- x 48-inch Praia porcelain tile collection and 16- x 32-inch Praia Crema Arterra porcelain pavers are perfect for giving your indoor and outdoor spaces a cohesive look. Featuring softly hued colors that complement nearly any decor, these pavers and tiles make a signature statement on floors, accent walls or any properties where a low-maintenance, easy-to-clean and durable material is needed.
The Onyx collection from Nemo Tile features porcelain tiles that replicate natural and semi-precious stones. Available in polished and matte finishes, Onyx is applicable on both walls and floors. Through advanced digital printing, the tiles mimic the veining of natural onyx and are offered in three colors — Gray, White and Beige — along with large formats.
The Marble Luxe collection from Walker Zanger elevates the classic elegance and refined style of marble even further. Cut from large blocks usually reserved for slabs, this tile is offered in a premium size with minimal thickness for easier installation and thinner grout lines. Incorporating crisp colors and patterns, Marble Luxe accentuates the superior quality of marble while transcending the traditional look and feel of more conventional marble tiles.
