Coming in on the coat tails of wallpaper looks and beyond, at Cersaie fabric-effect tiles were making themselves known, adding a layer of texture, a depth to design, and a touch of detail.
Florals and foliage formed an ideal basis for fabric-effects to flourish, with these two examples from Novabell highlighting the variety that can be achieved whether you focus on the imagery or the background, adding a subtle weave or statement stitching.
Other bold designs like these two from Navarti and Sanchis Home add extra relief and contrasting glaze to create a unique effect.
For these creations from 41zero42 and Grespania the fabric-look comes through in the motif choices. 41zer42’s Samarcanda is named after a city famed for its textiles and features an intricate ikat-style design. Grespania’s Fresco Donatello subtly introduces a brocade look that fades in and out across stone.
Two more unusual wallpaper effects from Keraben and Everstone play with an abstracted fabric effect alongside spots, swirl, and stripes.
Away from the wallpaper looks, Azulev, Mercury, and Porcelanosa each displayed various forms of stitching and weaving in neutral tones with plenty of 3D relief to enjoy.
