(March 18, 20201) — As part of Emser Tile’s Virtual 2021 Preview of new products, Suzanne Zurfluh, Director of Design & Trend for Emser unveiled several new products and trends the tile supplier is showing this year. A 72-page 2021 Trend Guide detailing all the new Emser Tile styles and trends is available for download here.
Authentic Materials: Natural, handmade materials with highly tactile textures that are charmingly imperfect add warmth and comfort to the space. Authentic materials such as rustic stone, pitted concrete, textural brick, wicker and wood grain add textural interest to our surroundings while acting as a counterbalance to our frequent contact with the digital world. Emser Tiles’s Hues and Raku reflect this new trend.
Biophilia & Wellness: Bringing nature into residential and commercial spaces for stress reduction, creativity, cognitive functions and overall better well-being. Wellness will be a key factor going forward with much attention being placed on adding calming rituals such as water elements, good indoor air quality, non-toxic building materials, sunlight and plants into the space. Biophilic design also relates to the utilization of sustainable choices that create a circular approach to design. Passion and Splash from Emser define this trend.
Nordic Style: Characterized by minimalism, simplicity and functionality. Nordic style highlights the use of natural materials, such as leather, light woods and hemp to create a cozy, inviting environment. This style focuses on textural appeal, sculptural shapes, and earthy hues which coordinate perfectly with warm neutral shades. Emser Tile’s Modan and Sphere illustrate this design direction.
