Tiles are no stranger to the trends phenomenon. From year to year, colors, finishes and textures continually evolve and transform. This year at Ceragres, tiles imitate wood and concrete, display the texture of stone and feature various patterns and reliefs.
Caroline Lemay, Designer at Ceragres, notices two important trends in the tile world: ''One of them is getting back to basics, raw textures and natural materials such as wood, slate and stone. Colors are soft, understated and feature sandy tones of greige, beige, taupe and warm greys in several undertones.''
Among these products, we find tiles that reflect wood species. The ECOLLECTION, GREENWOOD, WOOD 2 and FRAGRANCE series cover this complete range of exclusive products with colors and textures reminiscent of wood, so much so that the product is mistaken for wood! And all these features are combined with the durability of porcelain. Let’s also not forget tiles that replicate the variations and irregularities of natural stone.
The FRAGRANCE series is offered in three colours of glazed porcelain in a 9”x36” format. It recreates a cross-section of wood to a dazzling effect, and its wood-like texture fits in perfectly with both contemporary and rustic styles.
The new IN-ESSENCE series will be launched this summer. An authentic product on the market, this rectified porcelain combines concrete, stone and wood finishes. This series is available in the following formats: 12"x24", 24"x24" and 32"x32" in two colors for the stone and concrete finishes, and 6"x48" and 8"x48" for the weathered and petrified wood finishes as well as a combination of wood and stone.
Available in three colours, this glazed porcelain recreates the natural look and veining of stone.
