Having just returned from the Cersaie Exhibition, which is without doubt the most important exhibition in the world for tiles and bathrooms, with the world’s leading manufactures displaying products for their professional clients from around the globe.
There were some very definite trends, but they can be summed up by saying that the trend in production and new ranges for 2015 is…. More of the same.
The two big products previewed of the last few years have been “wood effect “ and “marble effect” and this year the main product launches were dramatic evolutions of these themes with advances made in size finish colour and depth of finish.
The Minoli Marvel series will be extended into 2015, with new colours and far larger sizes such as 75 x 150.
We are being asked by our developer and designer clients to provide more of the highly polished marble effect tiles, like Marvel and the new ranges we are to promote in December meet the criteria set…. to be luxurious, beautiful and practical.
The luxurious look is being achieved with these Italian Porcelain tiles, in rich colours and well as more traditional marble effect, but with the highly polished “lappato” finish.
One item, which does not fit in to this category, but has been received to great acclaim is the New Minoli Norway and contemporary look, that replicates a Terrazzo effect, with a Scandinavian appearance that is so unusual but so in keeping with the look and feel required by some developers and designers.
