Trends from CEVISAMA 2015

To keep up to date on flooring and wall tiles, we make an overview of the most successful styles we have seen at CEVISAMA
Polished Performance
Glazes are back in a big way… and looking set to last with durable, hi-tech lustrous effects. Whether re-creating the beauty of highly polished natural stone or adding gloss to a vivid pattern or texture, the broad range of Spanish tiles with this sleek finishing touch offers valuable design versatility.

Neo Stone Age
The ability to create ultra large formats, extruded textures and refined finishes in a strong slender ‘sheet’ of tile has allowed the Spanish tile industry to explore and optimise all the benefits of advanced porcelain – from high-traffic functionality to the subtle beauty of the newest stone effects. Applications range from floor to wall to worktop.

Parquet Patterns
Whether in tile designs offering wood or brick effects… and whether on the wall or the floor – the herringbone pattern is currently king! This enduringly elegant motif can be creatively achieved and easily installed by working with the very latest in Spanish ceramics.

Puzzle Pieces
Combining 3D effects with fascinating patterns, the Spanish tile industry is looking to the future 
of ceramic design with typical verve. A range of creative new tiling options include mazes of 
linking lines and jigsaw shapes that draw the eye with intriguing yet elegant aesthetics.

Luxe Metallica
As technology in ceramics pushes forward, so all the inspiring possibilities for striking 
design effects are being explored by an ever-innovative Spanish tile industry. One such 
advance is in inkjet technology which allows for eye-catching and glamorous metallic looks, 
from highly-reflective finishes to more restrained or textured effects.

The new Timber
The allure of wood grain, as reliably reproduced by non-porous, low-maintenance Spanish tiles, continues to be hugely popular. The latest looks range from a patchwork effect of mixed timber boards to panel style wall-cladding and stripped pine effects – enabling surfaces that are both beautiful and robust to be easily installed.
