Offering striking new shapes in a rich palette, the New Terracotta collection from Domus Tiles embraces the trend for a luxurious aesthetic with a handcrafted edge. Interesting glaze techniques, jewel like colours and a metallic lustre channel a modern glamorous style, adding an opulent feel to any interior. New Terracotta places an emphasis on handmade production which means no two tiles are ever the same. Traditional techniques result in a unique, tactile quality, with subtle shade variations, irregular edges and small imperfections are all part of the time-worn aesthetic.
In total, there are 46 colours, 9 finishes and 11 shapes and sizes to choose from. One new shape option is the curved T-drop which looks beautifully glamorous in a warm, metallic tone. The satin sheen finish reflects the light, displaying highlights of molten gold. The combination of the autumnal bronze colour and soft, organic shape is used here to create a sumptuous, elegant style
An offset triangle layout creates a striking sharp geometry which ties in with the trend for tribal patterns. Clean lines result in a graphic aesthetic, while the raw finish continues to celebrate the hand-made look. In a forest green tone this taps into the fashion for all things green, bringing a natural element indoors.
In recent years the hexagon shape has become a modern tile classic, welcoming a fresh geometric approach to surface design. The New Terracotta honeycomb hex continues to be a firm favourite. Combined with Mystery Teal Explosion glaze, the resulting colour has a richness and depth which works perfectly when creating a modern eclectic interior.
An ocean-inspired fish scale shape is a new addition to the range, shown above in a midnight blue Petroleum Oxide colour. Ideal for bathrooms, this shape is a perfect alternative to regular metro tiles. The striking finish and texture is obtained by applying the glaze to the reverse surface of the raw tile; the array of indents and textures allows the depth of the glaze to vary creating a multi tone finish.
