Flecked Effect

The flecked effect trend offers a kaleidoscope of colors or floating fragments of shapes, where the patterns lend a burst of energy to floors and walls, setting the stage for a playscape or a penthouse. The Marmette series by Savoia Italia was recently launched and is available in the Bianco, Mix, Antracite, and Nero in 24”x24” in the Matt finish.

Gorgeous Greens

More time spent indoors leaves one longing for a connection to nature. Green not only connects individuals to nature, but it also evokes a feeling of optimism, peace, and security, all of which are much needed in these uncertain times. Screziato Vivace is part of the Sounds of Marble collection by Ceramica Fioranese and it is a marble-effect porcelain tile with a colour combination of green, white, and grey. It is suitable for floors and walls and is available in our stock in 24”x24” in the Polished and Matt finishes.

Soft Textures

The simplest and most effective way to manipulate shade and to create depth is through texture. Three-dimensional tiles provide a lively canvas for light to play off and bring energy and movement to walls while keeping the color palette to a minimum. The Spiga Bottega collection by Porcelanosa creates unique atmospheres through the shine emitted by its textures and lines. The Spiga Bottega collection is available at Fontile in the Acero and Caliza colours in 18”x48” in the Matt finish.

High Gloss

Glossy tiles are making a comeback, allowing floors and walls to pop with perfectly smooth surfaces and beautiful shine. High gloss tiles offer a way to add both eye-catching flair and durability to the built environment. The tiles of the Rhombus collection by L’antic Colonial Porcelanosa Grupo offer a large amount of shading and simulate traditional, hand-crafted ceramic tiles. Find the best combination for your backsplash or feature wall with the Rhombus White, Cream, Verde, and Navy in 6”x10” in the Polished finish.


Extra-large ceramic tiles are growing in popularity and for good reason – they are elegant, durable, versatile, and safe. The XLIGHT and XTONE slabs by Urbatek Porcelanosa Grupo offer endless design possibilities with several shades, patterns and colours for walls, floors, and countertops.

Biophilic design has been found to support cognitive function, physical health, and psychological well-being. Linkfloor by L’antic Colonial Porcelanosa Grupo and Point Grey by ENMON North America are vinyl planks collections that simulate the surface of the wood in different shades. Made with high-quality materials and neutral tones, they can be adapted to all kinds of projects thanks to the possibility of creating multiple combinations.
