SANTA CRUZ, CA -- A tried-and-true collection that’s anything but basic, Island Stone’s Glass Essentials offers go-to, everyday use shapes and colors that blend effortlessly with the company’s designer offerings. As its name suggests, the new line of fused glass tiles provides designers with proven essentials -- timeless-yet-modern mosaics ideal for mixing into applications to help control budgets while enhancing the overall aesthetic of any new construction or remodeling project.
The line’s traditional, popular shapes are suitable for nearly any location while allowing designers tremendous flexibility: rectangles in three sizes (2 x 8, 3.5 x 12 and 6 x 12 inches) that install in stack, brick, or herringbone patterns; 3-inch hexagons; and elongated hexagons measuring 3.5 x 5.5 inches.
The robust color palette of traditional and future-trending hues is neutral and versatile for effortless coordination with other tiles, a selection of custom brights that provide the opportunity to create a mood with life and expression. Options include Pure Silk, Tule, Mojave, Oceania, Stratos, Azure, Smoke, Lagoon and Midnight. Gloss and matte finishes are available.
“Glass Essentials allows our beautiful and original colors to be accessible in the most popular formats and finishes,” said Nigel Eaton, CEO of Island Stone. “It complements our extensive range of designer formats, meaning we have a solution for just about any space.”
Like Island Stone’s other products, Glass Essentials tiles are engineered for brilliance in color consistency along with an annealing process that delivers superior performance over others in the industry.
