The popularity and appeal of using concrete as a key theme for interior finishes has soared over recent years, and has become the perfect canvas for industrial inspired contemporary design. ‘The Concrete Look’ is no longer viewed as something grey and dull. It has evolved into a clean contemporary style that features depth and character. Our designers experimented with different colouring techniques to transform the classic, neutral design into an incredibly versatile, contemporary set of concrete-look tiles. Each colour variation highlights different features contained within the design, and the tonal shift within the individual tiles creates a visually appealing palette. The result is an attractive product that adds a new warmth and elegance to a solid industrial material, making it appealing for both commercial and residential applications.
Recognising the trend for tiles with neutral, understated colour tones, our product designers chose a batch of subtle limestone to work from. They put the stone through an etching process, sandblasting it to create a ‘bleached’ effect, which exposed the raw colour of the underlying material. The design team then implemented a ‘satino’ process, which results in an aesthetic that is smooth and has a satin-like feel to the final product. The porous nature of limestone gives it great staining capabilities, allowing degrees of re-colouration that are impossible with most other types of stone. The original grey limestone was used to produce further shades of black and white, as well as a light sandy colour reminiscent of the traditional stone found in the Cotswolds, UK and recognised the world over. The final set of colours offer a broad palette, suitable for any interior.
Terrazzo originated in Italy where quarry workers used stone offcuts in their own homes. Although around for centuries, terrazzo is currently enjoying a resurgence in both residential and commercial areas. Traditional colourful terrazzo looks are being seen alongside more modern looks with tone on tone tiles, suiting the ongoing preference for a more neutral floor design. The original slabs that our designers sourced had quite a busy pattern and contrasting colour chips. In order to hit the combined concrete and terrazzo trend, they removed the coloured chips, as well as any very dark chips, to then insert a concrete backdrop that would be visible. The aim was to provide a more neutral look, allowing the tone to be the biggest attribute, while leaving the terrazzo features visible, but not as dominating as in the original stone.
Calacatta marble has long been recognised around the world for its striking beauty and was allegedly Michelangelo’s favourite stone to carve from. It originates from one single source: a mountainous area of Italy known as the Apuan Alps, making the original product both limited and expensive. Calacatta has two essential features: a pure white background and clear, bold veining*. These make it unique in the world of marble and our design team have spent over a year developing our first Calacatta design to ensure that our recreation of this beautiful stone, in an LVT format, reflects the original’s quality and aesthetic. Our Palazzo Marble design features the classic grey veining that graces palaces and cathedrals throughout Italy and is a truly cool classic that oozes elegance.
