Ceramique Internationale launches new shape-focused collections
Trend for geometric designs grows
Responding to the growing trend for geometric tile shapes, leading tile supplier Ceramique Internationale has added two new collections, featuring small-format chevrons and hexagons, to its portfolio.
Insignia is a 52x186mm format gloss finish chevron tile, which gives a luxe feel to bathroom and kitchen walls alike. The collection is available in three classic colours – White, Light Grey and Dark Grey – and looks great paired with either light or dark grout to show-off the “shape” of each tile. Insignia is an ideal style-accent for smaller wall features such as kitchens or cloakrooms, as well as entire feature wall coverings for bathrooms.
And to make ordering, and subsequently fitting, the design as simple as possible, the glazed tile is available in a set of two – a left tile and a right tile.
The second new collection is Art Deco tile – handmade-effect wall and floor tile in an on-trend hexagonal shape.
Five glossy spring shades are included in the collection, to bring vibrancy to walls – they make a perfect decorative option for a small feature wall, while the soft shade variation makes them as comfortable in a modern apartment as an English country house. For the floor, the cute glazed tile is available in three monochromatic shades – Plain Black, Plain White and Shaded Grey.
The hexagon shapes, stocked in petite 8x9cm format, can be used in a variety of colour combinations and placements to create a unique geometric design every time.
Peter Vann, Director of Ceramique Internationale, said: “It’s all about shape in the tiles market at the moment from hexagons to chevrons, and beyond.
“Oblong plank shaped tiles fixed in a herringbone style have been around for a long time and following the recent emergence in 2017 of the ‘arrow-head’ chevron shape, it is increasingly being used on walls as well, and is particularly good for creating eye-catching effects in plain colours in the kitchen, or feature walls in bathrooms.
“Hexagons are also enjoying strong sales – whether traditional Encaustic patterns or plain tiles which can be used in colour combinations to create vibrant designs on walls and floors.”
Ceramique Internationale employs 18 people, six of whom have been with the company for more than 20 years. Its Leeds warehouse holds 100,000 square metres of tiles in stock at any one time, comprising hundreds of styles of floor and wall tiles, mosaics and associated products.
