Wood-look tile continues to dominate the industry as one of the hottest trends in surfacing. American Olean’s new Bryson Valley collection offers ultra-realistic barnwood visuals with authentic hardwood texture. The rich warmth of real wood floors is presented in an 8- x 48-inch porcelain tile. Reveal Imaging provides stunning hardwood realism and TruEdge technology allows for tighter grout joints, further enhancing the authentic wood look. The tiles are available in a variety of colors, from warm browns to cool grays.
Featuring a bold arrangement of tangled rope, Twine from Artaic’s ReSalvage collection creates a modern textural focal point. Crafted with 1/2-inch sintered glass, the artistic design is sure to be a conversation starter in any room. All of Artaic’s designs are infinitely customizable by any tile type, size and color.
Lithos by Cotto d’Este USA is an exquisite stone look representing the rarest marbles. The tiles are available in six sizes — 12 x 24, 24 x 24, 24 x 48, 36 x 36, 48 x 48 and 102 x 48 inches — and three thicknesses: 6.5, 14 and 20 mm. The tiles are offered in four colors — Carbon, Desert, Moon and Stone — and six finishes: Naturale, Bocciadata, Lappata, Sabbiata, Grip and Soft.
Daltile’s new RevoTile is a revolutionary, patented, porcelain tile floating floor system that installs two times faster than traditional tile. RevoTile installs in just three easy steps: place underlayment, click tiles together and grout immediately. So easy anyone can do it. RevoTile is genuine Daltile porcelain tile offered in 26 gorgeous marble, wood, stone and concrete looks. Newly launched RevoTile is available nationwide.
Mood™ by Emser Tile is reminiscent of the quartzite stone from Vals, in the canton of the Grisons in Switzerland. Emser has translated that unique quartzite look into a durable porcelain tile. For use on floor and wall, the tiles are available in three standard formats — 23 x 47, 12 x 23 and 2 x 4 inches on 12- x 12-inch mesh mosaic — as well as a 3- x 12-inch floor surface bullnose. Colors include Ivory, Gray and Charcoal.
Karen Pearse Global Direct (KPGD) recently launched Protect Collection, a vast array of antimicrobial porcelain tiles developed with Microban® technology. KPGD’s entire Protect Collection is resistant to viruses and kills up to 99.9% of bacteria on surfaces using technology based on silver ions, which blocks the metabolism of bacteria, eliminating it and preventing it from replicating. Tested by independent laboratories, the Microban® technology applied is the only antimicrobial method that guarantees protection 24 hours a day, with or without sunlight, unlike other technologies which are only activated by UV light.
Tile with a hand-crafted look has been rising in popularity as interior designers and homeowners search for asymmetrical layouts and natural materials. Marazzi’s new Zellige collection embodies this hot trend of being “perfectly imperfect.” Zellige replicates the ancient Moroccan handcrafted tilework that was made from individually chiseled geometric tiles set into a plaster base. Undulated surfaces, variations in 12 rich color tones, and a glossy finish accentuate the natural imperfections and hand-crafted visuals of Zellige’s 4- x 4-inch tiles.
The all-new Oceans series by Mediterranea features colors as deep as the deepest sea. Mediterranea’s designers worked to re-create stunning Japanese Raku pottery effects in the Oceans series, with the result being a new collection featuring vibrant, transcendent colors and a metallic vibe that is unlike anything else. Oceans is manufactured in the U.S. to highlight these magnificent colorations and Raku-inspired graphics. Available in 24- x 48- and 12- x 24-inch formats, Oceans is offered in four colors: Atlantic (blue), Pacific (gray), Arctic (white) and Indian (rust).
Glow, the latest collection from Nemo Tile + Stone, is an iridescent, white body ceramic wall tile finished in chic pastel shades: Rain, Blush, Vanilla and Snow. The collection’s color offerings all include a unique and eye-catching hologram option containing the perfect mixture of each shade. The effect mimics a rainbow mirage, providing an enticing surfacing option that enhances retail, hospitality and commercial spaces seamlessly. The collection’s tiles are offered in matte and glossy finishes, and come in a 2- x 10-inch format.
Gala is a new recycled glass mosaic collection from Shaw Floors. The collection comes in two formats: Chevron (pictured) and Penny Round. Glamorous and elegant, Gala gives you the allure and excitement of a night on the town, without leaving home. It is available in three colors: Organza, Black Tie and Platinum.
As the latest addition to SomerTile’s renowned Kings Star Collection, Kings Star Night 17 5/8- x 17 5/8-inch ceramic floor and wall tile radiates Old World European elegance. Imported from Spain, this encaustic-inspired tile features a unique, low-sheen glaze in faded charcoal black tones, with centered antique white star patterns in each square. Designed by interior architect and furniture designer, Francisco Segarra, it is a true reflection of vintage industrial design, ideal for indoor residential use, including kitchen backsplashes, bathrooms and showers.
