Surface Trends

Thursday 2 May 2019

Which new products and designs are set to wow the UK market as we move towards a new decade? 

The Cersaie and Cevisama shows are always good barometers of the latest innovation emerging from the cutting edge European ceramic and porcelain industry.  Themes likely to filter through to the UK interiors sector include seamless design.  Produced by Italian manufacturers like Cotto d’Este, these products give designers the ability to create seamless surfaces. From large, ultra-thin porcelain tile panels and mesh-mounted mosaics to patterns that traverse a single tile's dimensions, seamless products are only likely to get more popular.

Textures through a plethora of variations are also prevalent on the latest tile collections.  Leather, tweed, tartan, lace and other fabrics, whether woven, layered, knitted or knotted add another tactile element to the hard surface.

Retro continues to reinvent itself as manufacturers borrow from the past for new inspiration. The graphic appeal of maiolica and cementine has long been drawn upon, but now other historic movements such as the simple elegance of art deco and the hues of the Memphis design movement have also entered the fray. 

Blue is back in vogue including a wide palette of vibrant and sophisticated shades from dark ivory to ultramarine blue. 


Our panel of design professionals look forward to exploring the latest surface trends with you next May.
