LOS ANGELES – As a leading designer, marketer and producer of the world’s finest tile and natural stone, Emser Tile will showcase an ever-expanding portfolio designed to exceed market demand and inspire market trends at The International Surface Event in Las Vegas, January 30 – February 1. Today’s architects, designers, contractors and industry specialists in both residential and commercial markets can preview the company’s latest innovative aesthetics at booth 5647.
Top tile trends on display include:
• Dynamic wall tiles ideal for on-trend residential and commercial interiors, featuring new textures, gloss finishes and three-dimensional shapes
• Unique mosaics utilizing mixed materials and increasing scales
• Wood looks that represent a broad range of new aesthetics and customizable opportunities
• Compelling takes on porcelain, natural stone and outdoor collections offering unmatched design flexibility and a wide array of applications
“From energetic wall tiles to new takes on natural stone, we are honored to lead the way in the industry with more than 20 new design-forward product introductions at SURFACES 2018,” shared Barbara Haaksma, Emser Tile Vice President of Marketing. “Celebrating 50 years in business, we remain committed to supporting our customers with a beautiful product portfolio, as well as continued dedication to exceptional customer service.” Emser Tile’s featured collections at the show include, among others:
Motif: Motif rediscovers the ebb and flow of decorative patterns found in visual art. A delicate lace overlay defines this glazed ceramic subway tile collection. With a selection of neutrals, the collection’s understated texture and glossy finish combine to create a unique aesthetic.
Nuovo: Nuovo brings undeniable glamour and sophistication to interiors through form and texture in a glazed ceramic wall tile. A beautiful display of shadow and dimension, distinct large-scale geometry is enhanced with small-scale etched and combed details that refract light and complement other textures.
Intrigue: Intrigue is inspired by the layers of texture that arise in porcelain, glass and marble mixed-material mosaics. A range of neutral overtones is woven together in a design-forward chevron pattern. With a glossy finish, the collection further heightens an elegant, large-scale wall design.
Echo: A dynamic union of shape, pattern, and sustainability, Echo hexagon and herringbone mosaics are crafted with recycled white, gray, brown and calacatta-look glass. Finished with inkjet prints of wood grain and calacatta marble patterns, the series is ideal for kitchen and bath surfaces.
Floor and Wall Porcelain Tile
Terazio: Terazio is an alluring recreation of terrazzo attributes in a durable porcelain tile. High-definition inkjets in neutral earth tones create natural speckled variations on the surface. Available in various shapes and sizes, Terazio provides a smooth, luminous finish for residential and commercial surfaces and acts as an ideal complement to a variety of patterned coordinates.
Lakewood and Lakehouse: An ode to the beautiful biodiversity of aged trees, Lakewood and Lakehouse intertwine to breathe life into contemporary surfaces in 8” x 34” glazed porcelain planks. While Lakewood grounds the design with distinct wooden tones that evoke rich detail and texture, Lakehouse acts as an accent motif with bold color variation.
Metro Blue: Building on the popular Metro line, Metro Blue expands the marble and limestone series to include three-dimensional split face and chiseled textures, as well as a linear pattern. Available in various shapes and sizes, Metro Blue celebrates a neutral, rustic aesthetic ideal for walls and surfaces.
Xtra: A collection of tiberwood, cement and travertine looks created solely for exterior surfaces, Xtra is offered in large format tiles for outdoor accent walls and 2-centimeter pavers for endless design opportunities across surfaces.
