According to Lindsey Waldrep, Crossville’s vice president of marketing, Retro Active 2.0 is an evolution of the company’s Retro Active line that has been a popular favorite in the catalog for many years.

“Retro Active 2.0—and the all-new Retro Active Patterns—are the next generation for a collection that’s been a staple in our product line-up,” Waldrep explains. “This new launch offers an updated color palette that speaks to current and future design sensibilities. The Patterns offer texture and beautifully crafted detailing to create installations that are uniquely functional and fashionable.”

Waldrep shares that Crossville’s product development team envisioned Retro Active 2.0 collection as an answer to specifiers’ ongoing need for go-anywhere surfacing solutions that transcend trends. By anticipating designers’ needs now and into the future, the team opted to create this collection with through-body color in a spectrum of contrasting hues, as well as rectilinear size options to answer nearly any project challenge.

The collection’s 13 colors, offered in unpolished or polished finishes, are Antico Taupe, Seal Taupe, Featherstone, Empress White, Snow Blind, Roasted Chestnut, Leaden, Mecurial, Phantom, Armor, Gulf Breeze, Racing Green, and Royal Navy. In addition, Retro Active 2.0 Pattern tiles, also offered in the 13 colors in a textured finish, work in tandem with the non-pattern tiles or on their own to give dimension to designs. From use in wainscoting, incorporated as accent or embellishment, or applied to add unique touches of texture, Retro Active Pattern tiles invite designers to create bold, new looks for walls and floors.

This comprehensive collection is available in seven field tile sizes: 3”x12”, 4”x12”, 4”x24”, 6”x12”, 6”x24”, 12”x12”, and 12”x24”. To create fully finished looks, the 2”x4” mosaic, cove base with inside and outside corners, and bullnose are offered in each color, as well.

As with all products produced at Crossville’s Tennessee manufacturing facilities, Retro Active 2.0 is responsibly made in the USA, contains a minimum of 4% pre-consumer recycled content, and is Green Squared certified. Retro Active 2.0 is recommended for interior floors, walls, and countertops, as well as exterior walls, in commercial and residential settings.
