Ceramic: Ties to fashion influence design

Home Featured Post Ceramic: Ties to fashion influence design

By Megan Salzano Fashion holds vast influence across various home furnishings categories, and flooring is no exception. Ceramic tile, more specifically, takes its cue quite regularly from the evolutions within the fashion world. In fact, tile manufacturers can often be found partnering with fashion designers from across the globe in an effort to impart high style and design into their collections.

This year is unique in that it is experiencing a certain level of nostalgia within its fashion trends—brought on by the need for comfort, a consequence of coronavirus-related challenges. As such, fashion trends such as art deco florals and ’70s style geometric patterns are heavily influencing ceramic tile design.

Florals

—Laura Grilli, lead product designer, Daltile

Marbling
