TREND DIRECTION: Statement Pieces
Flooring and surfaces play a large role in deciding style, mood and color scheme for a space. Many designers are choosing to make a bold statement with patterns including chevron, hexagon or new takes on subway tile. These statement tiles may also be installed in a multitude of ways to create a unique, one-of-a-kind look. See below for examples of statement pieces from Emser Tile’s new collections.
TREND DIRECTION: Dynamic Texture
Whether a soft, glazed porcelain or a natural or engineered stone, tile and stone products add a new layer of dimension. Specifically at TISE this year, Emser Tile debuted a multitude of new options. Materials like outdoor-graded stone have natural texture while advanced technologies provide porcelain tile with a textured look while still offering the soft-to-the-touch feel that is perfect for flooring. Emser Tile displayed a wide variety of natural stone products as well as porcelain tiles utilizing these new advances in technology, providing options that allow for a more unique look. Examples below.
TREND DIRECTION: Natural Materials – Wood/Stone
Taking design inspiration from nature, stone or tile products utilize elements from the earth to create unique coloring, veining and texture. Influenced by the flow of water and minerals, each tile has individual assets that are unique to that particular product. Emser Tile has developed a line of products utilizing natural stone, such as marble, as well as creating durable, water-proof porcelain tiles which may be good alternatives to natural wood.
TREND DIRECTION: The Color Blue
Pantone recently named Classic Blue as the color of 2020, following Sherwin-Williams’ announcement which features their bold shade of navy blue, called Naval. Blue is an ever-popular color, evoking a sense of calm, and in design, a classic appeal. Also being reflected in two of nature’s greatest gifts, our ocean and sky. To celebrate the year of blue, below are a few of our favorite collections featuring 2020’s hottest hue.
