Visual and tactile texture, speckled surfaces, terracotta and sage color combos tantalize in tile
The Fall-Winter Trend Report has emerged after Cersaie in Bologna, Italy, last fall, and it predicts what Italian tile manufacturers will be producing in the year to come, in terms of style, color and format.
One of the dominant trends is a leaning towards warmer tones, including terracotta and sage, and other earthy colors like olive, blush, ochre and rust. And this year among the Ceramics of Italy booths, warm blush tones and muted green hues definitely took center stage. The palette included a wide variety of iterations – from blue-greens and dusty jades to rich corals and earthy oranges.
Read on for more information about this trend and six others. From a design standpoint, the new collections from Italian tile producers were full of striking patterns, saturated color and interesting surface effects made possible by new technologies and collaborations with famous design studios and fashion houses such as Mendini, Lissoni, Versace, Valentino and Rubelli. Italian brands also demonstrated their expanding library of product offerings with sinks, shower floors and kitchen countertops made of porcelain tile slabs.
