New product offerings

January 12, 2012

The seemingly endless selection of tile products on the market today never ceases to disappoint with their rich colors, defined textures and fun patterns. With products to meet all design styles, the options are limitless. Many of these tile products will be on display this year at exhibitions around the world. Two upcoming ones include Surfaces, which will be held in Las Vegas from January 24 to 26, and Cevisama, slated for February 7 to 10 in Valencia, Spain. Here is just a small sampling of some of the most recent tile introductions.

Xtreme by Apavisa

Tile of Spain-branded manufacturer Apavisa presents the "Xtreme" Collection, a full line for both wall and floor applications with three colors available in a lappato finish. Arrays of geometric forms are also available, including Hexagon, Rectilinear and Square, for floors and walls. The Xtreme Collection, along with the company's full product lineup, will be on display at Cevisama 2012.


Semi-precious Gemstones Collection by Fameed Khalique

The Semi-precious Gemstones Collection offered by Fameed Khalique features 50 gemstones that are available in a plethora of styles -- from tiny mosaics to large slabs. The dazzling stones are solid or veneered onto a variety of substrates and are hand assembled by the finest craftsmen -- ensuring a high-quality product, according to the manufacturer.


Palace by Grespania

The "Palace" Collection by Tile of Spain-branded manufacturer Grespania emulates the classic look of marble with the technical properties of porcelain tile. Carrara and Palace Madras are both glazed porcelain, rectified and polished in a 20- x 20-cm format. Grespania will be showcasing all of its product offerings at Cevisama 2012.


Skema by Rondine

Italian tile manufacturer Rondine's Skema collection combines the intense beauty of terracotta and stone with the sophistication of natural essence. As on the floors of noble residences, terracotta, stone and wood come together to compose modules featuring elegant decorative motifs. Skema comes in Rosso, Crema and Oro shades, with seven design versions in 45.5- x 45.5-cm format -- three of them in a more traditional style (wood/terracotta, wood/stone and pickled wood/stone) and four more suitable for modern settings (wood/wood but with different designs). The collection -- for residential floors -- also features a particularly attractive outdoor version. The Skema collection and more will be on display at Cevisama 2012.


Antica Roma by Unicom Starker

Antica Roma by Italian tile manufacturer Unicom Starker is a collection of surfaces designed for architecture. Inspired by the ancient charm of citta eternal, the line is available in four sizes and four colors (Cassia, Flaminia, Aurelia and Appia). Antica Roma along with the company's array of product lines will be on display at Cevisama 2012.


Swimming Pool Glass Mosaic by Voguebay

Film mounted pool tiles by Voguebay are produced from cast 4-mm full-colored glass. The Flicker surface finish is achieved by a chemical process which changes the surface structure to allow different light deflection. The Swimming Pool Glass Mosaic can be used for both floor and wall applications indoors or outside. The full color glass 3/4- x 3/4-inch tesserae are available on a sheet size of 12 x 12 x 5/16 inches.
