CROSSVILLE, TN -- Crossville, Inc. has launched Oceanaire, a porcelain tile collection designed to capture the appearance of sea- and sand-swept natural stone. The line is notable for its multidirectional striations interpreted in five gradient color options and a range of versatile size options, including large formats and a mosaic option.
"This line is inspired by the vast scenery associated with the ocean, but it really comes to life in its details and subtlety," said Lindsey Waldrep, vice president of marketing for Crossville. "Striations coming from every direction, nuanced color options -- the look takes you beachside."
Oceanaire's color options -- Ashore, Current, Hightide, Waverunner and Seamount -- offer an earthen palette that ranges from lighter to darker tones. Each color comes in both unpolished and honed finishes.
"The finish gives a unique cast to the tiles," explained Waldrep. "It's fun to not only mix and match colors to create custom patterns, but also to interplay the honed and unpolished finishes to design really sophisticated installations."
Field tile size options for Oceanaire are 24 x 24, 12 x 24, 18 x 36, and 6 x 36 inches. The line offers a 4- x 24-inch bullnose, as well. For even more design versatility, the collection's 2- x 6-inch mesh-backed mosaics provide lots of installation possibilities. Crossville's Get Planked sizes may also be requested.
Oceanaire is suitable for commercial and residential interior floors, walls, countertops and exterior walls in both residential and commercial applications. Full installation recommendations may be found online and in product literature.
In keeping with all products produced at Crossville's Tennessee manufacturing facilities, Oceanaire is made using third-party certified, sustainable processes, is Green Squared certified, and contains a minimum 4% recycled content. For more information on this collection, visit crossvilleinc.com.
