Dalí’s Timeless Tiles

A few years ago during a trip to Cersaie we had the pleasure of seeing a truly iconic range. Although we naturally included it in our ‘Curiosities‘ compilation, a friend of Tile Addict recently reminded us of the collection once again and we realised it deserved an article all by itself. Not new in 2019, and certainly not new now, this range by ADEX was … Continue reading Dalí’s Timeless Tiles

Beauty in Blue

There is something completely magical about blue marble and blue-hued stone-effects. Nature’s abundant beauty knows no bounds but when it comes to practicality, porcelain and ceramic immitations can offer a little extra. To demonstrate we’ve compiled some of the stunning blue toned gems to be found in the tile world, and a little of their natural counterparts. Continue reading Beauty in Blue

Black Rock Tile Studio

Another company to recently appear on our radar comes from very far across the pond in Toronto, Canada. But its name is taken from somewhere much closer to home. Black Rock Tile Studio is the title chosen by founder and artisan Catherine Carroll, honouring a road in the coastal Irish town of Bantry in County Cork where her father heralded from. But the connection with … Continue reading Black Rock Tile Studio

Tile Trends 2021

It’s been reasonably hard to explore the vastness of the tile world and select the stand-out trends, and we’ve really missed collecting our ‘curiosities‘ at Cersaie and Cevisama, but really the next best thing is to see what tile giants like Ceramics of Italy have found to be trending. So that’s exactly what we’ve done. AutumnalThe rich comfort of all things autumnal was seen in … Continue reading Tile Trends 2021

Nature’s Gift of Geology

This new collection by Sabine Hill is really hard to ignore. With a selection of visuals similar to those we saw with Enis Akiev‘s plastic tiles and Granby‘s encaustic tiles, Geology takes a no-pattern approach to decor. Using an old freeform technique, colourful folds and undulating waves are produced in random sequence. Without moulds, the tile maker becomes the artist, offering a unique signature on … Continue reading Nature’s Gift of Geology

Handcrafted by Habito

Although it’s ceramic and porcelain that we tend to focus on here (and occasionally weird and wonderful innovative materials), we can’t ignore awesome design when we see it, especially if it’s still technically tile. And today it’s wood that’s getting the spotlight. Luxury interior expert Fameed Khalique recently added to his range of surfaces this year with a variety of Engineered Wood Tiles, and that’s … Continue reading Handcrafted by Habito
