Bedrosians Tile & Stone unveils shapes, large and small, for Fall 2018

Our innovative and design-forward Fall 2018 Collections bring new shape, dimension and unparalleled performance to homeowners and trade professionals.

Achieve the look of timeless stone and contemporary design with durable, large porcelain panels. Magnifica® Porcelain by Bedrosians is a perfect surface for creating seamless countertops, floors, walls, kitchen islands, backsplashes, and ventilated building facades because of its thin profile options and large dimensions. Designers and architects are drawn to its sleek aesthetic that allows for minimal grout lines and the grandeur of a solid wall or floor.

Alicia Bedrosian, our Product Manager for Sourced Porcelain, is amazed by the realism of Magnifica® compared to natural stone. She said, “I’ve been in the industry my whole life and honestly most times cannot tell the difference between the two. When developing this line, I completely fell in love with the fact that we could offer the premium high-end look of stone without the maintenance”

 

 

 

 

The appearance of 3-dimensional tiles has changed the face of tiled surfaces, with embossed or molded patterns that make walls pop. They add drama to a space and naturally attract attention. Our two new 3D ceramic wall tile collections, Hedron and Triangolo, fit right into this trend.

Hedron is a 5”x4” hexagon. Its design plays with light and shadow to give walls visual depth and dimension. Hedron is offered in eight colors, in matte, glossy and metallic finishes. Mix and match the colors, finishes and patterns to create unique wallscapes. Strategically placed lighting of the wall will add impact and help define all the angles and shadows of the tile’s peaks and valleys.

Felicia Clark, Creative Director for Decorative Products, who curated these collections said, “3D tiles in stone, ceramic or porcelain are a huge trend for 2018. With my love of shapes and textures, Hedron and Triangolo brings this concept to life in a subtle way. Shapes like the hexagon and triangle continue to make a big impact on the design scene. It is contemporary and fun without being over the top. It’s like wallpaper taken up a notch with a continuous flow of texture and movement. Its timeless style offered to you in luxury that is refined yet outspoken.”

Triangolo, with characteristics just like Hedron, is a 4.5”x5” 3D triangle. We offer six colors, in matte, glossy and metallic finishes. Depending on how you group the tiles, you can create several patterns.

Local HDP, the latest wood-look plank from Florida Tile creates an atmosphere that invites you to linger and belong

Lexington, KY: August 6, 2018 ⎯ Florida Tile introduces Local HDP. This glazed porcelain floor and wall tile allows you to design an atmosphere that creates a sense of connection – a place of both possibility and comfort – a place to linger and belong. The look of weathered, painted wood introduces comfort and familiarity that is rustic…yet graceful.

“Local HDP is one of those rare products that immediately gives you a warm, almost nostalgic feeling when you look at it. It reminds you of a place you have been, even if you can’t quite remember where that place was,” said Tressa Samdal, Director of Marketing for Florida Tile. “During development we focused on the urban planning idea of ‘third spaces’, places beyond home and work where you spend time. Those spaces transcend locale and invite you to be part of the community and its story.”

The seasoned color palette of Bistro, Café, Lounge, Market, and Tavern will give any interior or exterior space tone and personality. The refined white, cool and warm grays, calming creams, and taupes set a mood that is welcoming and chic, delivering you to your favorite local haunt. An 8″x36″ pressed plank provides a format that works well in an array of traditional, contemporary, or eclectic environments. A 2″x12″ herringbone mosaic available in each of the five colors, as well as warm and cool mix cube mosaics make a modern and impactful statement.

Manufactured using proprietary HDP—High Definition Porcelain® printing technology, Local HDP is appropriate for all applications in both residential and commercial settings. It is entirely made in the USA in Florida Tile’s Green Squared® certified Advanced Manufacturing Center in Lawrenceburg, KY, of 40% pre-consumer recycled content. It meets the DCOF AcuTest® requirements to be installed in wet areas and is GREENGUARD® and Porcelain Tile certified. Incorporated into the tile surface is Microban® antimicrobial technology that works continuously to inhibit bacteria growth, improve visible cleanliness, and reduce odors.

Island Stone Introduces Paragon Hex Sculpted Stone Tiles

(Santa Cruz, CA, July 12, 2018) Island Stone’s artistry and creativity with natural stone pushes the limits of the imagination again with the introduction of Paragon Hex, one of the company’s most sophisticated designs to date. Paragon Hex stones are precision cut and surface sculpted into rhomboids with a tapered, angled relief. Those unique pieces are then placed into a hexagonal layout to create an interlocking tile. The result is a seamless, three-dimensional array that is at once complex yet elegant.

“Paragon Hex is a truly unique achievement in stone. Typically, a shape this involved would be made out of porcelain or glass,” says Paul Sepulveda, National Sales Manager for Island Stone.“The combination of complexity and sophistication Island Stone has achieved with Paragon Hex is a testament to our unique vision and intimate expertise with the stone medium. It’s one more way we’re expanding our customers’ expectations about how stone can be used in more modern forms while preserving its earthen, natural feel.”

The edges of the Paragon Hex stones are lightly tumbled for a soft, punctuated look. The stone comes in two colors: Sandstone Ocean and Sandstone Mint. Each hexagonal piece measures 5/8” deep at its thickest point and covers .38 square feet.

Paragon Hex is part of Island Stone’s Profile Series. The line also includes Paragon Chevron, in which the same rhomboid stones are interlocked into a repeating chevron pattern.

DALTILE’s FLEXFIT reduces installation time and cost

Dallas, TX – August 7, 2018 – When Daltile (www.daltile.com) introduced its leading-edge Panoramic Porcelain Surfaces into the market last year, the new extra-large-format porcelain products offered customers a chance to “go big” with slabs approximately 10’ x 5’ in size – ideal for floors, walls, countertops, shower walls, tub surrounds, and exterior applications.

Now, Daltile’s new “FlexFit Size Solutions” program offers customers additional flexibility using Panoramic’s innovative porcelain slab products – through a pre-cut program that includes multiple sizing options, giving customers many new possibilities for their projects and enabling Daltile to further grow its business. The FlexFit program offers the slabs pre-cut into seven smaller stocked sizes that reflect the most standard cut dimensions needed for both residential and commercial applications.

“A key advantage we offer is a very short lead time for both full size slabs and our new standard sizes,” said Ben Redding, director countertop operations and sales, Dal-Tile.  “Our FlexFit seven pre-cut smaller dimensions give our customers a superior thin porcelain product that they do not have to cut, saving retailers, contractors, and builders time and money.”

“The reaction in the market from customers to the FlexFit program has been extremely positive,” added Redding.  “Installers like the fact that they don’t have to logistically move a full panel around, and the design community is loving the new size options.  With FlexFit we’re enhancing our groundbreaking porcelain slab offering, by providing stunning natural stone and concrete visuals in our seven standard smaller sizes, making it even easier to create seamless design in a kitchen or wrap-around luxury in a master bath, for example.”

The pre-cut sizes are available in both 6 mm and 12 mm thicknesses.  All Panoramic colors are stocked in extra-large slab as well as in the new standard sizes, at key Daltile slab yards across the nation.  Pre-cut sizes include:

63” x 63”

Lunada Bay Tile debuts new vintage-inspired Textile patterned glass mosaic tile.

For its latest collection of glass mosaic tiles, Lunada Bay Tile has channeled vintage textile patterns and weaving techniques from around the world. The new Textile line is created through a meticulous translation of embroidery, woven fabrics, and other textures into imaginative, sustainable, glimmering surfaces ideal for commercial and residential applications.

The Textile collection comes in three patterns:

Bargello: The name “Bargello” originates from the Bargello palace in Florence, Italy, specifically tracing back to a pair of 17th century chairs boasting a unique upholstery, made even more interesting by fusing in a flame stitch pattern. To emulate the needlepoint embroidery, in which vibrant wool threads were stitched onto canvas with upright flat stitches, martini-glass-shaped tiles are installed in a geometric wave with alternating colors.

Imberline: Lunada Bay Tile created Imberline in honor of traditional weaving techniques that combine various colored stripes. The lustrous glass tiles, measuring 1/2″ x 4″, are ideal for walls and backsplashes, where a dramatic stripe can make a visual impact.

Normandie Deco: For this pattern, Lunada Bay Tile gives a wave to the opulent Deco furnishings found on the SS Normandie, a 1930s French luxury ocean liner. The 1/2” x 1/2” mosaics lay out in a repeating arrow pattern of light-colored tiles interspersed on a field of brightly-colored blends.

https://lunadabaytile.duehrandassociates.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/LBT-Textile-Normandie-Deco-Mica-01.jpg

Each pattern is available in six colorways: Anise, Blue Stone, Flannel, Lunar Eclipse, Mica, and Morning Light.

“Textile brings to life some of the world’s most beloved fabrics and furnishings,” says Feras Irikat, Director of Design and Marketing for Lunada Bay Tile. “Our fresh take on vintage techniques is both timeless and modern, for walls that immediately catch the eye and delight the imagination.”
