Similarly to fashion, the skill of material combination is a key concept of home decor. It is central to creating a codified style (minimalist, urban, country, classic…) and even more so when focusing on contamination, in order to avoid a chaotic jumble of discordant ideas.

In both cases, it is, first and foremost, necessary to perform in-depth research: on the colours, on the materials, on the fabrics and on the forms that will co-exist. It is only by being familiar with the nature of each material, with the colour variants, with the historical and geographic origins, the texture and the way of reacting to light that it is possible to create winning combinations juxtaposing, for example, continuity and/or complementarity or chromatic, material, geographic/historic elements…

Where nothing is left to chance

The overarching idea is that nothing must be left to chance while appearing effortless, ensuring, in other words, a natural feel.

What is clear from the stylistic trends analysis, which every year feed into our TREND BOOK, is the importance of knowing how to coordinate, within the parameters of a precise style, and combine very contrasting themes. A notion of contamination that pervades, albeit to varying extends, all the styles that we have identified as driving forces.

The inputs that we collect during the stage of research allow our creative team to propose wisely calibrated combinations among a range of ceramic surfaces. This then results in our design collections, which, incorporating a variety of aesthetic effects, offer the client a set of effective and ready-to-use interior design tools. Let’s look at a few.

Camille takes us from the warmth of wood to the hardened texture of cement. The natural imperfections of the former go hand in hand with the eroded and antiqued surface of cement tiles Cementine, harmonious with eco-sustainability and informed recycling. Camille follows an essentially chromatic fil rouge in which the cream and the anthracite embellish with blue and beige nuances. Enhancing the imperfections of the material, it skilfully connects the past to the present.

Loop combines three highly characterising stylistic elements, namely Calacatta marble, wood and cement tiles Cementine. Offered in four colour variations, wood is ideal to cloak any room of the house while marble, carefully used, emphasises the idea of naturalness that underpins the entire collection. Two mixes of Cementine complete the project that, on a white base, proposes exquisitely retro graphics. Loop is therefore a design collection, rich in potential with combinations that are never left to chance, instead carefully thought out.

Tendance sums up the main inspirations of the contemporary architectural scenario in one single collection combining wood, stone and cement.

Their union is found within a warm and light perfectly harmonised chromatic palette. It thus offers multiple design solutions with a focus on customized and modern spaces with a hint of creativity.

Urban Concept enhances the fluid mixing of cement to create spaces that best represent contemporary minimalism. A style that is influenced by graphic and colour combinations with a neoclassic slant: the Cementine tiles of this collection, which can also be used for flooring, elevate creativity, making it a central concept. With their colours and the classically inspired mix of textures, geometries and plant motifs, they create settings that are elegant, original and full of personality, with a central focus on contamination.
