Los Angeles—Emser Tile, leading designer and producer of quality tile and natural stone, has released collections designed for outdoor living environments to add to its existing portfolio of products.
Tile and stone are materials often used outdoors for the natural appeal and durability to withstand the forces of nature. Patios with stone pavers, stacked stone retaining walls, ceramic pathways, pool-rated tile, whether for fresh water or salt, are functional and beautiful additions to a backyard and home, according to the company.
Paving the way to your outdoor oasis
Incorporating pavers can create an instant transformation, creating space delineation whether for patios, pool surrounds, accent walkways and other outdoor living environments. Whether looking for the subtle beauty of limestone, the earthy look of travertine or the elegance of marble, Emser said its Extero natural stone pavers cover all the bases. Available as stand-alone tiles or as a Versailles pattern set.
Blurred lines between indoor and outdoor
Since nature plays such an important role in well-being, outdoor areas continue to gain significance in the overall design of a space with the addition of pools, patios, outdoor kitchens and fireplaces, according to the company. “These skillfully designed open-air retreats provide an extension of interior living and working spaces, as we see a blurring of the lines between interior and exterior environments,” said Suzanne Zurfluh, director of design and trend, Emser Tile.
Emser Tile also released new pool-rated collections featuring the beauty of blues and greens. “Often associated with nature and sustainability, green reflects growth as well as an overall sense of newness,” Zurfluh said. “While blue’s innate connection to the ocean and the sky embodies stability and a clearer vision of the future.”
