September – The Year Begins

For Minoli each year has always led up to our very busy period starting in September. No matter how busy or quiet a year has been, the months of September, October and November are always the ones that have the most activity and sometimes December as well.

September really signals the start of “The Season” where we see a dramatic upturn in orders and activities. September also sees the Cersaie Exhibition in Italy, where the Minoli team seek out the very latest collections ready to launch in the following year. In recent years we have sourced some truly amazing collections in Cersaie, such as Evolution Marvel, Evolution Iconic and wood collections such as Axis and Travelling. These ranges, once finalised are previewed to our corporate clients towards the end of November.

October, this is the month where we see the most activity from our core client base, with developers looking to complete projects in good time for the year end, with their clients aiming to be in the new properties well before Christmas and retailers working with their clients to achieve much the same ends.

November, this is a month where the Minoli policy of keeping large stocks really comes in to its own, as shipping from the production sources becomes more compromised by the need by the transport companies to accommodate seasonal produce. The Minoli stocks are kept very high for the last quarter of the year and our ability to deliver from stock ensures our clients can finish projects. November also sees us putting the finishing touches on our new year collection and normally the preview is held.

December, often a strange month, normally with only two full trading weeks, (three this year) it can often be exceptionally busy or very quiet, there is no real pattern to this, but again out ability to deliver from stock ensures that clients in a hurry can specify Minoli to ensure the project is completed.

With the forth coming showroom re launch in George street where many of our corporate  clients will see the completed 2014 collection set out in stunning room set displays, as well as enjoy the hospitality we are know for.

The autumn product preview date will be announced shortly, with the first opportunity to see the very latest ranges from the Cersaie exhibition.

Four Seasons (One) Mix Mosaic 30 x 30 cm (8mm) VC02785

The new mosaic – Four Seasons One has arrived into our warehouse and we must say, we are delighted with this wonderful new product.

Conceived from the enormously successful and rather splendid Four Seasons Mosaic, this new version of Four Seasons, has a smaller individual tile size of 1 x 1 cm on a 30 x 30 cm mosaic sheet.

This new version of the Four Seasons, with its smaller size creates a new and amazing effect, very much like a piece of fine jewellery.

Available in these 8 colours – Mix, Oasis, Spring, Autumn, Winter, Ocean, Wood and Snow.

SEASONS_ONE_WOOD   SEASONS_ONE_OCEAN
Wood                                              Ocean

The original Four Seasons is such  a beautiful and adaptable range, we simply did not think it would be possible to improve upon it, but this new Four Season One really is special!

Samples are now available to view at our Oxford and London showrooms and will shortly be rolled out across our distribution network.

New Ranges New Displays.. Corporate Showroom – Oxford

With the new ranges now arriving in to stock, the Minoli marketing / merchandising team have begun to display the products in the Corporate showroom, Oxford.

Mark, Richard and Bob are busy changing displays to have the new ranges in place for our corporate visitors, house builders, designers and developers.

One of the main displays areas will be tiled with the Seastone series in the Greige colour, 30 x 60 and 30 x 60 Brick Mosaic ( laid portrait) on the wall sections and 60 x 60 in the floor area.

The larger of the two displays will feature the luxurious new Gotha series, with Platinum and Diamond Lux Lappato Polished in 29,5 x 59 on the wall sections and 59 x 59 Diamond on the floor area. For the display we have chosen this simplified look, but mosaics are available in both Lappato Polished and Matt finish.

In the ground floor Rustic showroom, Shaun from the showroom team is busy installing the Seastone on one of the larger floor tile room setting areas, where the natural light will highlight the beauty of the Seastone and its natural finish. Other display will also be updated as the new lines come into Stock.

An Exciting Week for Deliveries…

This week is proving to be one of the busiest weeks for new stock arrivals that we have experienced in quite some time.

With several new stock lines all becoming available from production at the same time, we are experiencing a very busy period within our goods in ( import) department.

With at least two containers a day booked in for every day of this week, and more to follow next week, the new ranges are starting to fill the spaces allocated for them in the warehouse. Paul and Tony are busy getting the material off the trucks and containers, checking it thoroughly and then placing the pallets in to the picking locations and the bulk stock locations. Typically a new range will have between 5 and 10 pallets of each colour and size as an initial stock holding, with one pallet placed in the picking location and bulk stock above it. There will also be a substantial reserve kept in the manufacturing plant to enable the first re-  order shipment to be supplied promptly and usually in the same production batch for shade and calibration.

Minoli celebrate unprecedented awards success

The team at Minoli are celebrating an outstanding run of success at The Annual Tile Association Awards after yet another year of accolades for the Oxford based distributor.

At this year’s ceremony, Minoli again collected the award for Excellence in Marketing, which they last won in 2010. The judges took particular interest in Minoli’s annual events strategy which has outperformed their other marketing initiatives in terms of return on investment and has seen ever increasing attendance levels from their expanding customer base.

For the launch of their 2013 collections, Minoli once again chose Home House on London’s Portman Square as the setting for their event. The venue provides the perfect environment in which to showcase the company’s new product portfolio and its central location has proved a real draw for customers and prospects across London and the South East.

Home House

Over 250 guests joined the Minoli team at the exclusive location, enjoying a prosecco and canapés reception in the striking, minimalist interiors designed by the acclaimed Zaha Hadid and finished in sumptuous detail by Candy & Candy.

Home House Executive Chef, Jeremy Brown prepared an enticing menu of miniature classics to tempt the attendees and a selection of fine Italian wines from the Tenuta Santome Estate were sourced for the event by the specialist food and wine importers at Italian Continental.

The theme of the event – ‘Interno – Esterno’ - aptly captured the exciting design direction of Minoli’s new ranges, focusing on the latest collections that can be used both inside and outside, together with a new ‘super luxury’ addition to the Evolution series. The ranges also feature in a brand new, comprehensive brochure and supporting display materials specifically developed for the launch.

The Tile Association Awards celebrate all that is best in the wall and floor tile industry. They recognise and reward the outstanding products, people, businesses and projects of the preceding year. The winners were announced at the annual TTA Gala Dinner on Saturday 20th April in Birmingham.

This also is the third consecutive year that Minoli have landed the Award for Excellence In Distribution, an unprecedented recognition of the company’s continued commitment in this field.

Managing Director Jonathon Minoli said, “We’re delighted to have once again been commended for our efforts by our industry peers in two very important categories for our business.

“With regard to the Marketing award, this is particularly satisfying as it endorses our focus on direct marketing and events to develop more meaningful and engaging dialogue and relationships with our clients.”

The New Evolution Marvel Series – simply marvellous.

Marvel Range
Marvel Moon Mosaico 3D

The new Evolution Marvel Series from Minoli is aptly named as you will simply marvel at the sheer beauty and diversity of this exciting range of floor, wall and mosaic tiles that perfectly emulate the luxurious finish of Italian marble.

Traditionally, marble is associated with the grandeur of stately homes and exclusive developments, where a statement of luxury and opulence is desired. However, in today’s house building marketplace, more savvy premium developers are turning to porcelain tiles as a viable contender in terms of both price and finish.

The Evolution Marvel series from Minoli emphatically demonstrates the incremental benefits of porcelain and, since the initial preview launch in November 2012 (at the Home House Interno – Esterno event), Marvel has already been specified in a number of high-end private and commercial developments.

On a practical note, over natural marble, porcelain tiles are considered stronger and more durable, less prone to corrosion or staining, generally more slip and water penetration resistant, do not require sealing or polishing and are there for ultimately more cost effective.

In terms of aesthetics, being man made, porcelain tiles convincingly emulate the beauty of organic stone but come in a wider range of colours, a variety of larger sizes, are more consistent in tone and texture and, as such, less likely to show wear and tear.

Evolution Marvel is available in four gorgeous new colours; Moon Onyx – a shimmering silver-grey with subtle, pale veining, Calacatta Extra – akin to natural, radiant, white marble with more pronounced mid-grey veining, Grey Stone – with a deep slate-like tone and lustre, and Bronze Luxury – a rich and warm, glowing metallic.

Marvel Moon Onyx 1  Marvel Calacatta Extra
Marvel Moon Onyx                                                                   Marvel Calacatta Extra

Each colour is available in a choice of contemporary sizes and finishes including 75 x 75 cm, 60 x 60 cm, 45 x 90 cm and 30 x 60 cm – all in a matt finish or the Lappato finish – which is semi polished with the natural texture of organic stone. Three different 30 x 30 cm mosaic tiles are also available in matt, Lappato and stunning new 3D relief – specifically designed to create eye-catching wall features.

The Minoli Evolution Marvel Series is now in plentiful stock and available for order. More details can be found online at www.minoli.co.uk, in the new Minoli ‘Interno – Esterno’ brochure which is available upon request, or come and see them in person at Minoli’s  showroom and distribution centre. Alternatively Minoli can arrange for a member of their team to contact you to set up an appointment at your convenience.

The New For-Ever Range – A Timeless Addition to the Collection

For-Ever Range
For-Ever Rock Lappato

The New For-Ever Range from Minoli is one of the most versatile and timeless tile ranges available in today’s marketplace.

Capturing the eternal appeal of natural stone in technically advanced fine porcelain stoneware, with three surface finishes available across all six contemporary colours, For-Ever allows for unprecedented visual consistency, both indoors and outdoors.

For-Ever also comes in an extensive range of sizes and formats making it ideal for floors and walls throughout kitchens, bathrooms, living spaces, commercial areas, patios and external spaces.

The Matt finish is truly subtle and minimalist, the Lappato has a natural, semi-polished brilliance and the Strutturato is lightly structured for texture and grip.

In total there are seven different sizes in the range, with varying availability across the finishes, including 60 x 120 cm, 60 x 60 cm, 40 x 60 cm, 30 x 60 cm and 20 x 60 cm. Complimentary traditional square mosaic in 30 x 30 cm, and brick style mosaic in 30 x 60 cm, also feature, making For-Ever suitable for all manner of creative applications.

For-Ever Earth 2  For-Ever Moon
For-Ever Earth Matt                                                          For Ever Moon Matt

Colours span from the deep, slate lustre of For-Ever Dark, through the rich mid-tones of Fore-Ever Arctic, Earth and Rock, to the clean elegance of For-Ever Light and Moon.

The state of the art production techniques encapsulate micro-flakes within the porcelain reproducing the organic layering found in natural stone, creating a unique balance of performance and aesthetics.

For-Ever is remarkably durable – being stain, wear and frost resistant, is accredited with EcoLabel certification and features anti-slip ratings of R9-R11.

Technically advanced and truly contemporary, For-Ever looks set to stand the test of time as a mainstay of Minoli’s portfolio for years to come, if the initial reaction from Interior designers and developers is an indication.

The For-Ever Range is now in plentiful stock and available for order.

The New Trek Range – The Natural Choice

Trek Range
Trek Ocean Black Mosaico Brick

With its sculpted, organic surface patterns, the New Trek Range from Minoli faithfully emulates the beauty and strength of natural slate, but with all the advantages of technical Fine Porcelain Stoneware.

With multiple sizes and formats, designed for floor and wall application, and in a range of six complementary colours, Trek offers an almost modular solution for the most forward-thinking architectural designs.

Trek comes in six sizes; 60 x 60 cm, 30 x 60 cm, 20 x 60 cm, 30 x 60 cm ‘brick’ mosaic, 30 x 60 cm ‘3D brick’ mosaic and 30 x 30 cm traditional square mosaic.

trek-arctic-white-1   Trek Silver Grey
Trek Arctic White                                                                Trek Silver Grey

Each of the six unique colours bring out the flinty, metallised effect of hewn rock; Arctic White, Silver Grey, Ocean Black, Dune Beige, Jungle Green and Forest Brown.

On a practical note, over natural stone, porcelain tiles are stronger and more durable, less prone to corrosion or staining, more slip and water resistant, do not require sealing or polishing and, ultimately more cost effective.

In terms of aesthetics, being man made, porcelain tiles convincingly emulate the beauty of natural stone but come in a wider range of colours, a variety of larger sizes, are more consistent in tone and texture and, as such, far less likely to show any sign of wear and tear.

The Trek Range is now in plentiful stock and available for order, Ocean Black and Arctic White, Silver Grey being the core stock ranges.

The New Sunrock Range – Brilliant and Beautiful

Sunrock Range

The New Sunrock Range from Minoli brings out the brightest side of technical porcelain stoneware in a beautiful variety of sizes, surfaces and colours.

Bourgogne Sand, Jerusalem Ivory and Rapolano Beige faithfully replicate the contrasting shades of marble in a sublimely natural pattern, with a soft but radiant sheen.

Tavertino White and Travertino Almond capture the form of organic Travertine, accentuating the delicate linear tone differences which are exposed when cut parallel to the grain.

All of these stunning colourways are available in a range of uniquely creative sizes; 40 x 90 cm, 75 x 75 cm, 60 x 60 cm, 30 x 60 cm, 30 x 60 cm structured, 30 x 60 cm brick mosaic and 30 x 30 cm traditional mosaic.

Sunrock Bourgogne Sand Sunrock Bourgogne Sand 3
Sunrock Borgogne Sand                                                   Sunrock Jerusalem Ivory

Continuing the “Evolution “ theme promoting and showing the advantages of the new extra-large formats, both Bourgogne Sand and Jerusalem Ivory are available from stock in the 75 x 75 format as well as 45 x 90 and 60 x 60.

With such a rich choice of finishes, textures, tones, shapes and sizes, the most creative of design concepts can be realised, indoors and outside, across floors and walls, feature panels, steps and alcoves.

The main stock colours, held in the extensive Minoli distribution centre are the Ivory and Sand, probably the natural choices for most installations given the replication of the buaety of natural stone reflected in these particular combinations.

The Sunrock Range is now in plentiful stock and available for order.

Home House launch for Minoli’s new 2013 Collections

Now becoming an eagerly awaited fixture in the diary, Minoli once again chose Home House on London’s Portman Square as the setting for the annual launch of their new ranges for the forthcoming year.

Over 250 guests joined the Minoli team at the exclusive location on Monday 19 November, enjoying a prosseco and canapés reception in the striking, minimalist interiors designed by the acclaimed Zaha Hadid and finished in sumptuous detail by Candy & Candy.

Home House Executive Chef, Jeremy Brown prepared an enticing menu of miniature classics to tempt the attendees and a selection of fine Italian wines from the Tenuta Santome Estate were sourced for the event by the specialist food and wine importers at Italian Continental.

The theme of this year’s event – ‘interno – esterno’ - aptly captured the exciting design direction of Minoli’s new collections, focusing on the latest ranges that can be used both inside and outside, together with a new ‘super luxury’ addition to the Evolution series.

With increasing demand from House Builders, Architects, Designers, Retailers and Developers, some of the most renowned tile manufacturers in Europe have produced an unprecedented variety of ranges with complementary interior and exterior finishes.

The Minoli ‘interno – esterno’ collection gathers together brand new, technically advanced ranges, such as For-ever, Trek and Sunrock.


Sunrock – Jerusalem Ivory

Also included are ranges that emulate more organic materials, like the warm, natural wood finishes of Noa and Etic, and the timeless, marble-effect lustre of Marvel, a fresh addition to the established Evolution series with its contemporary 75 x 75cm format.


Evolution Marvel – Grey Stone

Managing Director, Jonathon Minoli said, “We’re delighted that so many of our clients and suppliers were able to join us to preview our exciting new collections in such a stunning venue and look forward to even more exclusive launches throughout the year ahead.”

New Ranges 2012-2013

2012 saw one of the biggest range launches by Minoli, with the year now approaching the busiest period these items are in stock and ready to go!


Etic Palissandro

With the amazing launch night at Home House at the very end of 2011, ranges such as Etic, Evolution-Evolve and Stockholm were shown to the market as a preview ready for launch in 2012. These exciting ranges were produced and started to become available in the spring with full stock available from the off, together with brochures, web references and point of sale displays, a complete launch of different and dynamic ranges.

     
Stockholm                                               Evolution-Evolve                                     Etic

Now fully established in the market, with sales and specification building the ranges have shown that the tremendous response shown at launch was justified and that the longevity of these stunning lines will continue long after launch.

During September and October, the Minoli team visit our major manufacturer suppliers in Italy looking for the inspiration for the coming year and from what we can see 2013 looks to be a fantastic year for product launches.  With the ongoing theme of inside & outside , together with the continued move to bigger and bigger sizes, we can see the way to meet demand and to also stimulate creativity for our clients.

With very little within the existing Minoli ranges that could be considered “Old” these additional ranges will again offer our clients even more dramatic and beautiful ranges to select for projects small and large.

We will keep the news and blog fully updated and ensure that the new ranges exceed all expectation and given that we are Minoli….. they will come in to stock !

Inside – outside

The Trust series by Minoli, launched primarily for interior design has been rapidly accepted and used extensively for inside – outside projects where the same tile is required to run from the inside space to the outside space. Trust in its standard form is suitable for both applications and as the additional benefit of have special editions available for even more specific uses. Trust “Grip” is available for use in wet areas where bare feet will be on the tile, such as in  spa or swimming pool, generally in public rather than private areas. Now we have introduced Trust in a 20mm thickness, ideal for industrial and external uses.

One of our first installations with this exciting new product is in a domestic residence in the Cotswold, where the 20mm Trust, (600 x 600 x 20mm) has been used to create a terrace area in a stone walled courtyard. The owner of the property has selected Trust over a stone or paver due to its beautiful finish and durability. We also have one of London’s very top Hotels looking to specify the tile for its new roof garden development.

The new Stone-Studio Range

 

Designers, architects and developers have recently brought about a renaissance in stone effect surfaces, seeking to fuse contemporary design with more classic environments.

Natural stone can often be seen as the most authentic solution for period buildings, traditional homes and new builds, however in today’s house building marketplace, more savvy developers and designers are turning to porcelain tiles as the viable and desirable contender.

Recognising and responding to this trend, over the last 12 months, the Minoli buying team have sought out several stunning new porcelain stone-effect tile ranges. The latest arrival, the new Stone-Studio range, adds another dimension as one of the most versatile and stunning additions to the Creative Essentials Collection.

Stone Studio Beauval Almond is available in a variety of sizes, 30 x 60, 60 x 60 and 50 x 100, in a Natural finish and the generous 50 x 100 format is also available in a Lappato polished finish. Together with both slimline ‘brick’ and traditional square mosaic, Stone Studio is ideal for development, domestic and commercial use.

The Stone-Studio range from Minoli emphatically demonstrates the incremental benefits of porcelain. On a practical note, over natural stone, porcelain tiles are stronger and more durable, less prone to corrosion or staining, more slip and water resistant in their natural form, do not require sealing or polishing after installation and are ultimately more cost effective.

In terms of aesthetics, being man made, porcelain tiles convincingly emulate the beauty of natural stone but come in a wider range of colours, a variety of larger sizes, are more consistent in tone and texture and, as such, less likely to show wear and tear.

The full Stone-Studio range is now in plentiful stock and available for order. More details can be found online at www.minoli.co.uk, in the new Minoli Creative Essentials brochure which is available upon request, or come and see them in person at Minoli’s Oxford corporate client showroom and distribution centre. Alternatively we can arrange for a member of our team to contact you to set up an appointment at your convenience.
