We have seen a strong push from more designer oriented tiles for not only floor application but wall as well and with that we have seen some outstanding designs in a wide variety of materials. Kreoo of Italy who specializes in a gorgeous series of marble wall and floor tiles each with a theme that features a unique characteristic is a favorite here for sure. We recently featured a cool and very unique seating concept called PAVE STONE from designer Enzo Berti who also gives us the some of these super stylish collections seen here.
The intricate detail of the Motion collection includes floor and wall color combinations that play with different visual effects and tactile sensations and is available in various tones of marbles and finishes. This would be perfect for a smaller accent wall but to me the busy shapes would be a bit to much for a larger wall and it would have to be combined with flooring that was monochromatic. Often combining several patterns is inadvisable for obvious reason.
You would really need an expert to install this incredible marble floor from the Picto collection and designer Raffaello Galiotto which feature a common unfolding thread that randomly winds its way through your home. Here a mixture of Crema Marfil, Rosso Alicante, Emperador Dark, Nero Marquina, and Extremoz White were used create this most unusual floor tile.
The two patterned and textured wall tiles here are hard to take your eyes off and provide such a great depth and dramatic appeal to the room that wall paper or even a great piece of art cannot provide. The lighting in a room like these can take on a new look at the shadows and details of the marble comes out in a most striking way. The Rose collection shown in black is available in black on white, red on crème, or crème on dark brown. The Merletto below features “refined plots” inspired by the antique art of Italian lace weaving. A wise succession of circular motives skillfully woven into the marble, a refined plot worked into bas-relief that focuses the attention to detail of a particular elements which seem to come to life just like real lace.
