Painterly is the next theme identified in the 2018 tile trend report from Kristin Coleman and the team at Novita PR in the USA.  One again, this tile design trend was identified following close observation of the new collections from the top Italian tile manufacturers at Cersaie 2017.

Everywhere you look there is an overarching softness and romanticism in the design world with gentle curves, washes of colour and the unmistakable touch of an artist’s hand.

Tile is no exception, with this year’s collections featuring hand-painted patterns, sketches and illustrations, marbled effects and watercolor designs.

Standout collections include Pad by Patrick Norguet for Lea Ceramiche whose irregular lines and delicate shades create a soft, sensual effect and Corrispondenza by Dimore Studio for Ceramica Bardelli whose hand-painted decors create a polychromatic kaleidoscope of soft tones.  Other collections include Wide & Style by ABK, Verde Verticale by Ceramica Francesco de Maio, To Be by Cercom, Paintwash by Elios, SpazioChiaroScuro by Litokol, Manifesto by Ornamenta, Sketches by Settecento and Kora by Unica.
