This year’s international tile exhibition in Valencia, Spain, provided a platform for visitors to view the latest tile product lines that are available on today’s market

Each year, the Feria Valencia Centre in Valencia, Spain, hosts Cevisama, an annual international ceramic tile exhibition, which draws in tens of thousands of visitors from around the world to view the latest products and technologies today’s market has to offer.

This year, the show was held from February 11 to 14, 2014. It featured a variety of tile products that stay true to current trends, from authentic-looking surfaces that mimic natural materials such as wood and stone, to highly decorative mosaic-looking pieces that embrace more vintage styles.

The exhibit halls were filled with many innovative tile collections. Manufacturers have been working to keep up with the demand for large-format tiles, and exhibits showed both floor and wall applications. Additionally, stone-look tiles now offer the look of marble, slate and limestone — complete with authentic-looking textures and veining. Also, wood-look tile is reaching beyond the aesthetic of basic hardwood. Collections now offer worn and distressed wood looks. Advances in technology allow for tile surfaces to possess inherent characteristics of hardwood such as grain and knots. Moreover, tiles with surfaces finishes that have the look of worn concrete were prominently displayed throughout the show floor.

The following is just a sampling of the numerous new tile innovations that were displayed at Cevisama 2014: SEE SLIDESHOW
