Lunada Bay Tile’s Custom Blends Provide Personalized Touch for Any Space


As consumers increasingly seek to express their individuality in their homes, Lunada Bay Tile is answering the call with custom glass mosaic blends that allow for endless combinations of the company’s glass mosaic tiles. Designers and homeowners can mix and match tiles from 11 patterns, 69 colors, and multiple finishes. Every custom blend is created by hand in Lunada Bay Tile’s California workshop and can contain as much as 70% recycled glass.

To create a custom blend, customers work with a Lunada Bay Tile showroom professional to choose tile sizes, patterns, colors and finishes from a single series or combination of series and specify quantity and arrangement of each component. Once these decisions are made, the showroom orders a custom swatch card or grouted sample board, so the homeowner can be sure their blend choice fits their project.

“Today’s consumers, whether millennials, Gen-Xers, or baby boomers, have eclectic tastes—and they don’t want to be put in a box. As such, homeowners want to customize their spaces to reflect their personal tastes and style as well as to stand out from their friends and neighbors,” says Feras Irikat, Director of Design and Marketing for Lunada Bay Tile. “Lunada Bay Tile’s Custom Blends program allows customers to combine our striking tile profiles and eye-catching colors into something truly one-of-a-kind.”

The Custom Blends program draws from five tile collections: Agate, which evokes the semi-precious stone found in volcanic formations; Mizumi, a lush-colored, nature-inspired collection incorporating waves, bubbles, and creases; Shibui, which takes inspiration from the Japanese aesthetic of beauty that celebrates subtlety and simplicity; Tozen, which channels watercolors by using transparency, pigment, and light to tell a story; and Tozen Glow, which features silver or gold leaf for an extra dimension of metallic shimmer behind the translucent glass.

Cotto d’Este USA introduces CEMENT PROJECT

When matter meets creativity, something original and captivating always comes to life. 

Lexington, KY: June 25, 2018  Cotto d’Este USA’s CEMENT PROJECT is a versatile collection in which the typically “urban” nature of cement is expressed in a new way – in vast and architectural contexts. Surfaces and colors echo cement effects with aesthetic and sensory fidelity.

“The collection conceptually mirrors the great, Brutalist, twentieth century style of architecture” says Tressa Samdal – Director of Marketing for Cotto d’Este USA. “It embodies a strong expressive power, enabling a wide variety of interpretations.”

The series uses a combination of three tones, ranging from light grey (Colour-10), to intermediate grey (Colour-20) to dark grey (Colour-30), featured on three different surfaces: Work, Cem and Land, each available in different thicknesses and sizes.

The Cem and Land surfaces reproduce cement in its purer, compact, urban style. Cem is available in Kerlite 5.5mm plus, while Land comes in a 14mm thickness, a distinctive Cotto d’Este offering. The company is unique in supplying high thickness materials where the firing process is over twice as long as for the standard 10 mm porcelain stoneware and done at higher temperatures, achieving maximum strength and durability.

The Work surface replicates the effect of board-formed concrete with a precision never seen before on large, thin ceramic slabs. Marked with the indelible impressions and character of the wood planks that formed it, the Work surface is available in Kerlite 5plus (5.5 mm). Combining the contrasting characteristics of concrete and the lightness and maneuverability of large, ultra slim slabs, Kerlite guarantees a unique, flexible and resilient product, distinguished by its versatility and convenience of use. Thin, lightweight, with sizes up to 100×300 cm, the Kerlite slabs are reinforced with fiberglass and suit the design challenges of contemporary architecture. In addition to the Kerlite version, Work is also available in a 20mm thickness, perfect for extending the beauty of Work to the outdoors.

Samdal adds “We previewed CEMENT PROJECT at the 2018 Coverings Tile and Stone Experience and were met with unprecedented interest and approval. We look forward to seeing the projects that utilize this gorgeous tile.”

Cotto d’Este USA is a fully owned subsidiary of Panariagroup, a publicly owned company traded on the Milan Stock Exchange (MILAN: PAN IM). Panariagroup is a leading manufacturer and distributor in over 60 countries around the world with six manufacturing sites in Italy, Portugal and the USA and eight brands positioned in the high-end of the market.
