New Vignette in Showroom

Posted on September 8th, 2014

Check out our new vignette in the World Mosaic Tile showroom!


We have given one of our showroom vignettes a fresh new look to feature a few of our most sought after decorative tiles. We chose a 12×24 white wall tile as a neutral backdrop matched with unique ceramic and glass tiles to make a statement.

Oceanside Glasstile, Devotion collection is the couture of all glass tiles. This recycled glass product looks similar to stained glass art due to the interesting water jet and hand cut designs. This collection is available in variety of colours spanning from earth tones to bold jewel tones to compliment any project in a chic way.

The Devotion in Silver Cloud Blend is a unique piece of glass art that looks magnificent as a shower or backsplash feature. Could you imagine a powder room wall covered with this beauty? It would be absolutely breathtaking!

Ceramic tile is no longer confined to squares and subway shapes as technology and consumer demand is allowing for more complex shapes and fabulous colours. Shapes inspired by Moroccan architecture are making a strong presence in all aspects of interior design and tile is no exception. Shown here is the Walker Zanger, Arabesque in a crackle finish blue. An absolutely lovely ceramic tile to bring interest to a bathroom or a backsplash project.

Stay tuned for another one of our vignettes to be installed with new stock tile that is coming in this week! This one will be quite dramatic in terms of colours and pattern- think a chic patchwork quilt. We can’t wait to get these tiles off the boat from Italy and into our showroom!

Introducing Calacatta Bianchi

We have been searching for quite a while looking for the perfect porcelain Calacatta. It has been quite the journey to find a porcelain that correctly conveys the timeless elegance and luxurious feel of a Calacatta marble.

Alas, we have found the perfect Calacatta look-alike! Introducing the elegant Calacatta Bianchi. The veining and colouring of the Calacatta Bianchi is truly unique, similar to that of the natural stone.

This classic tile from Italy is perfect for floors, bathroom shower enclosures or even feature walls. With two sizes in stock (17.5×17.5 and 9.5×17) the looks you can create are endless.

New Ardoise Sizes

Our Ardoise collection has been incredibly popular since we brought it in earlier this year from Italy, so it was an easy decision to add additional sizes to our stock.

Ardoise is a porcelain that took the timeless natural element, slate and modernized it. Unlike slate, this porcelain tile requires no maintenance and is durable enough for outdoor use. We have four colours in stock that are sure to bring timeless style to any space. Some sizes available are 2×2 mosaic, 12×24 and 18×18.

Ardois- Colours

Here are a few fabulous installation photos of the colours available. It’s hard to believe that the Ardoise collection is porcelain and not natural stone!
