More 2017 Tile trends that blew me away!

Get ready for some more serious tile eye candy because today is part two of the six tile trends I spotted at the Spanish tile show Cevisama. If you missed my first three trends you can catch up here.

Today’s post is mostly photos so grab a cup of coffee, sit back and enjoy.

4.Textile inspired tiles: Textiles and porcelain have teamed up to create some beautiful new options for tiles. Some of tiles looked so much like fabric that I had to to touch them to believe they were porcelain. Plaids, prints, even herringbone tiles were on display at the show.

Shagreen (shark or ray skin) which is so popular right now for case goods is now also an option for a tile. You can’t tell in the photo but they feel exactly like real shagreen.

Plaid which is also trending for interiors was spotted on tiles. Wouldn’t this Burberry inspired plaid be fun for a powder room floor?

These new textile inspired tiles are possible because of new advances in both 3-D and ink jet printing technology. It’s amazing what they can do now that even a few years ago was not possible.

These white textile inspired tiles are right on trend yet have a longer “shelf life” than some of the bolder statement tiles above.

One of my favorites was this white lace tile. The tile is on top and the fabric inspiration is shown below it.

Tiles that resemble hammered or oxidized metal were especially popular. I see these being used more in a commercial space but they were absolutely gorgeous. The sizes and shapes varies from planks to large squares. These metallic tiles behind a vintage leather sofa reminded me of vintage gym lockers or the grill on a radiator cover.

These 3-D metallic tiles were another one of my show favorites.

Hexagon shaped tiles had a large presence at the show as did triangular and rhombus shaped designs.

So that wraps it up! I hope you enjoyed my tile trend pictorial. I want to give a huge thank you to Tile of Spain for opening my eyes to all the many choices in tiles today from Spain. My head is spinning with ideas and I can’t wait for my next project where I can specify tiles.

I’d love to hear from you. Which tile trend is your favorite?

    Wow! Those copper tiles are gorgeous! The textile tiles look like the real deal. It’s amazing how far this technology has come. I am doing an install of the Airslate metal tile in a client’s master bedroom. I think you have some pictures there or similar. Love your blog! Thanks for posting. 🙂

    Love! Great to see what they are doing in Europe since the trends usually start there and filter over. I hope you had a great trip.
