The Feria Valencia Centre in Valencia, Spain, again welcomed another edition of Cevisama, the international tile and stone exhibition, which continues to draw in more visitors from all parts of the world each year to view the industry’s latest introductions and technologies. This year, the show was held from February 1 to 5, 2016, where it attracted nearly one of the largest crowds to date.
Throughout each of the exhibiting booths that Contemporary Stone & Tile Design visited, it was clear that certain trends still remain popular and are steadily developing, including all ranges of wood, stone and brick looks, as well as concrete- and cement-inspired industrial finishes. Glazed subway tiles, with distinguished glossy surfaces, geometric shapes — especially the hexagon — and more mosaic options with decors were some of the newer styles that emerged among many tile manufacturers. It was apparent that companies are also developing more textural options, seen in many different types of decors, shapes and patterns.
