Portobello America introduces an Ultra-Modern Glazed Porcelain Tile appearing centuries old

With a look reministic of Crete, this ancient city’s unique heritage lives on in Portobello America’s new Creta Collection.  Capturing a look and feel of long ago, Creta’s relaxed colors and subtle tones lure you with their timeless beauty.

Four neutral colors are available in various sizes which captivate the eye with their distinctive natural cement appearance.  Field tiles are offered in an 8×48″, 12×24” or 24×48” format, with complementing ceramic deco tiles and mosaics in a myriad of sizes and shapes.

A true highlight of the Creta Collection is its unique 8×8” matte pressed wall deco tiles which have the appearance of hand sculpted 3D tile for an even more artisan style.

“This floor and wall tile collection was designed specifically for the American market,” stated Jason Neu, Portobello America’s Director of Sourcing and Marketing,. “And, with it being produced in our new state-of-the-art, 900,000 square foot factory in Baxter, Tennessee, we can bring it to them with shortened lead times and greatly reduced shipping costs.”

Neu summed up this collection by stating, “Portobello America is transforming spaces and the way people feel within them. Inspired by a legacy of craftsmanship and timeless innovation, the Creta Collection can turn any residential or commercial space into a true classic.”
