American Olean’s Fall Product Preview Captures Today’s Leading Design Trends

Two new ColorBody™ Porcelain collections and a mosaic line extension bring more options than ever before for projects of every scale

The use of long, linear plank sizes and textured finishes are growing style trends in both floor and wall applications, and American Olean is answering the demand by expanding its ColorBody™ Porcelain offerings in a big way through the launch of two new collections– Relevance™ and Scene™ – as well as enhancements to the brand’s popular Unglazed ColorBody™ Porcelain Mosaics line. These new offerings were inspired and designed with American Olean’s customer’s needs and trend demands in mind for complete Freedom of Expression when selecting tile for projects of any scale. Both Relevance and Scene boast impressive plank sizes reaching 48 inches in length, a first for the American Olean brand.

“This launch marks a major milestone for the American Olean brand as we release some of the largest plank sizes presently available on the market today,” said Lori Kirk-Rolley, Vice President, Brand Marketing, Dal-Tile. “As our manufacturing capabilities become even more sophisticated, we’re pleased to be able to offer our customers an impressive assortment of long, linear plank sizes that continue to be extremely popular in both residential and commercial design. These new offerings, as well as the update to our Unglazed Mosaic line, are a complementary addition to American Olean’s existing ColorBody Porcelain collections offering even greater design flexibility than ever before.
