Tile Addict loves a wood-look tile, and a design that tells a story, and this new characterful collection from Crossville brings together both of those things. Jazz Age takes us back in time, to the dancing clubs from the 1920s and ’30s, offering the worn wood of the dance floors.
The porcelain tiles have been designed down to the tiniest detail, not only imitating the grains of hardwood floors, but also the wax sheen often seen in nightclub floors. Adding to the worn feel, the tiles also offer an insight into an imitated history of dancers and foot tappers, highlighting scuff marks and indentations from chairs, tables, and party-goers.
Lindsey Waldrep, Crossville VP of marketing explains the collections ‘European feel’ and how it “looks like wood in buildings, cafes, and clubs that have stood the test of time.” The hardy appearance of the tiles is also translated into its manufacture as a piece ideal for areas with moisture or high levels of foot-traffic.
The collection comes in four natural hues (Louis, Duke, Count, and Billie) in a 8” x 48” plank and two mosaic decor options (a 2”x2” square mosaic and a herringbone style).
