Colors, shapes and textures weren’t forgotten this year as both small and large companies showed off their finery at Coverings last week.
Glass, stainless steel, and mosaics are still here to stay, morphing into incredible shapes and 3-dimensional textures.
Murano Glass Collection from Elida Ceramica/Surfaces
Bright colors from Viva Ceramica
Vitromarmi: Glass and stone intricacy from Artistic Tile
Cosmati black glass floor: 13th-century inspiration from Sicis
Recycled black glass tile from Vidrepur – rated for flooring
The stunner of the show (and in which I set off a flurry of questions in my Twitter stream that went along the lines of “Where can I get THAT?!?” was from Hirsch Glass – a prototype of a 3-dimensional glass tile that put me in mind of fish scales.
Unfortunately, it’s only a prototype at this point, but we can at least look, can’t we?
