Transition and Noon are among the porcelain tile that have impressed more.
The Transition collection presents a not-so-gradual gradient effect tile called Fade. With tonal bars in a single unit, Fade tiles can create some rather striking, unique compositions on floors or walls. The 24- and 48-inch-square units come in five color palettes inspired by their namesake’s landscapes: Ostuni, Lecce, Matera, Turin and Milan.
A second design that caught our attention was Pennies from Mirage’s Noon collection. The whimsical mesh-backed mosaic puts a literal spin on the classic pennyround by digitally printing the face of each round with a copper penny’s head (Lincoln profile) or tail (Lincoln Memorial building).
