Varied Vernís

We’re not finished with Cevisama just yet. There is still one special collection to share – the plentiful, stylish, and disparate designs presented at the stand of glaze, colour, and printing specialist Vernís. Much like in Apavisa‘s Fluid, watermarbling is a feature of Vernís’ Lycuit. The curvy organic waves decorate the tiles in brown earth tones, and are highlighted with glaze on pale neutrals. Kahlo … Continue reading Varied Vernís

Cevisama Curiosities VI

Our last collection of curiosities are some of our favourite finds from the show. We’ve been waiting to share these eye-catching geometric reliefs, intricate mix-and-match, and fantastical displays for a month. First up is Nexo‘s Decorative Mix. These 330 by 330mm tiles take the mix-and-match trend to the next level, creating patterns within patterns and tiles within tiles. The result is an enormously impactful feature … Continue reading Cevisama Curiosities VI

Cevisama Curiosities V

There are still curiosities a-plenty to share from Cevisama, with a delightful array of fun and decorative pieces that have yet to be given the spotlight. Codicer is always a winner, with displays that consistantly showcase unique designs and heaps of personality. Their 250 by 250mm Graph collection demonstrates this wonderfully with squiggly mix-and-match patterns with naive strokes. The random, sporadic, cartoon lines have a … Continue reading Cevisama Curiosities V

Cevisama Curiosities IV

At this year’s Cevisama there was a notable lean towards matching sets – that is, differing formats that work together, collections utilising the same shades for cohesive design, and combinations that one might not have thought of. Durstone combined their 315 by 1,000mm 3D square decor relief tiles Japandi Kayachi with the 230 by 270mm hexagonal terrazzo designs of Six. Matching the colours of Blue, … Continue reading Cevisama Curiosities IV

Cevisama Curiosities III

These exciting design tid-bits are one of our favourite things about these events, and there are still more curiosities to share from the show. One stand that had some wonderfully inspiring designs was Natucer whose collections repeatedly that stood out to us. Their 130 by 130mm D’Autore Dolce is unbelievably gorgeous, a textured mixed-glaze marvel that can be personalised to a client’s specification. Presented at … Continue reading Cevisama Curiosities III

Cevisama Curiosities II

Yesterday’s curiosities were only the beginning and there are still plenty of fantastic designs awaiting a mention. One collection could have easily been placed with the weave-look designs from the show, but its unique format and stone-look companions meant its own space was needed. 2πround from Cicogres is a collection of large circular tiles in stone, marble, and weave-effects. Combining the circular shapes with curved … Continue reading Cevisama Curiosities II

Cevisama Curiosities

As with Cersaie, we have not only sought out the trends and fashions of the tile world at Cevisama, but also had some fun collecting some of the more intriguing designs. Among these curiosities are a few recurring themes, such as the prevalence of strokes, splatter, and all things paint. Although hand-painted and artisanal tiles have been all the rage for the past few years, … Continue reading Cevisama Curiosities

Texture, Layout, and Zellige

Taking a break from traditional layouts, adding texture, and enjoying the hand-made chic of zellige tiles were all identified as being hot trends in 2020. At Cevisama it wasn’t hard to see them coming into affect. Standard formats still maintained prevalence, and it’s now a common site for them to be presented in a vertical or stack layout. These arrangementss can really alter interior appearances, … Continue reading Texture, Layout, and Zellige

Weaving and Panelling

Continuing our look at some of the mini-trends from Cevisama are two that lean towards the old-fashioned, replicating classic materials with ceramics. Tile textures have been all the rage for the past few years with companies exploring what can be done, and tactile surfaces adding an enticing element to interior design. At this year’s show there was one such surface that was especially appealing – … Continue reading Weaving and Panelling

Ike Summer from Codicer 70s retro tile trend 2020

Hot and Cold with 70s Retro

There were a few trends around Cevisama that didn’t make it to the big list, but they’re still worth a mention. Florals didn’t stop at quaint and delicate or bold and tropical, for many companies they simply went hand-in-hand with their retro revival designs. Exaggerated curves and cartoonish shapes paired with earthy browns, yellows, pinks, oranges, greys, and blues to create a 70s style. Nexo‘s … Continue reading Hot and Cold with 70s Retro

Bali Stones from Mainzu tile trend 2020

Pretty Petal Patterns

Botanical designs were set to prove popular this year, continuing on from the trend of 2017, incorporating florals for a “focus on health and wellness” through “the incorporation of the natural world into interiors”, as well as “tropical modernism” which saw a burst of demand last year. Tropical jungle prints haven’t entirely fallen out of favour just yet, and at Cevisama there was still plenty … Continue reading Pretty Petal Patterns

Wood-look Wonders II

Companies weren’t just mixing medias in their tiles to create incredible surfaces, many played with texture and detail for covering solutions with a difference. Azulindus y Marti showcased 3D relief tiles that had the appearance of square wooden cross-sections in various natural shades. They also added faux age marks on their 125 by 250mm ranges including Sabina, Old Wood, and Decapé, providing a gorgeous well-loved … Continue reading Wood-look Wonders II
