Tile of Spain showcases Cersaie tile trends

Home News Tile of Spain showcases Cersaie tile trends

Miami, Fla.—Spanish companies traveled to Italy last month to showcase their latest collections at Cersaie, the International Exhibition of Ceramic Tile and Bathroom Furnishings. The annual event brings together architects, interior designers and tile producers to explore the latest innovations and trends in the ceramic tile sector.

This year according to show organizers, 81 Spanish companies presented their latest ceramic offerings during the week-long fair. The following are the new trends, formats and technologies Tile of Spain found at the show:

Polarized Marble

While white marbles still reign supreme, more compelling crystallines like Macchia Vecchia and others join the likes of Calacatta and Statuary. This new approach retains the organic variation of a veined stone with an overall aesthetic that is more homogenic with a symphony of texture, finish and effects. 

Tantalizing Terrazzo

Keeping pace with polarized marble is terrazzo but with a broader range of chipped materials embedded in a largely monochrome matrix. These collections work with marbles, woods and traditional ceramics alike, inviting designers to add layers to their compositions while keeping a cohesive feel.

Golden Arches

Art deco influences are here in the form of arches and rounded corners. A nod to organic shapes while retaining the straight grid-lines of a tile matrix, these curves bring a sense of whimsy and approachability to even the most austere and luxurious aesthetics.

Natures Element

The rise of earth tones is expanding to include all ranges of warm-inspired hues; from deep neutral browns to warm grays and off-whites. Earth tones tip the scale to the warm side while accent colors continue to favor cooler greens and blues.

Modular Format

Interchangeable, multi-format programs lean into the need to create flex spaces at times and define our boundaries at others. The modular format creates blurred lines that allows for reconfiguring a space as needed for multiple use-cases.

Crisp and Clean

During this new era of ceramic design, a more delicate approach will run parallel with artisanal textures and organic materials. Smooth compositions, hushed textures and minimalistic patterns will lend a sense of balance.

Celebrating Ceramics

With digital technology progressing to a point that multiple finishes, structure and volumes can be digitally applied, the industry is circling back to some intriguing classics from centuries past. Ceramics that aren’t trying to mimic anything accompany all the preceding trends.
