In the Trend Book dedicated to the styles that will emerge over the next two years, the classic style is – of course – a feature. Indeed, it is a style that – by definition – is destined to last long after any number of passing fads have come and gone.

Characterised by a certain understated elegance and a carefully studied sense of balance, the classic style constantly revives the charm of a tradition whose calling cards are architectural elements in relief (such as friezes and rosettes), crystal chandeliers, furniture and armchairs from yesteryear, curtains, paintings with gilded frames and pieces of furniture with a certain presence in terms of both footprint and style.

Intimate, comfortable hues

Just like any other style, it is expressed through its own colour code, which applies to all surfaces and materials. Floors, coverings, walls, curtains, furniture, furnishings – everything down to the knick-knacks comes together to form a colour palette that will, in the immediate future, be centred around the ever-timeless white, beige and burgundy, ivory and dusty pink, without forgetting the warm, luminous greys, ideally expressed in the perfectly balanced and elegant shade of dove grey.

These background colours can always be paired with accented notes of gold and silver – colours that the eye no longer sees as colours at all – as well as materials such as concrete and natural wood. These are reassuring and intimate shades which can always have a little vibrancy injected into them with graphic patterns and reliefs, woven textures and veining.

Our collections offer a huge variety of ceramic surfaces that fit in harmoniously with the classic style, with pairings often coming down to a matter of colour. But that’s not all: especially with the more decorative options, their design also contributes to keeping alive a home décor tradition that reinvents itself year after year in the classic style.

The floor has a colour, too

Together with the walls, the flooring is what really ties together all the elements of any given interior design project. As such, carefully selecting the colour is paramount to setting the mood and style of a room.

One perfect option for the classic style – indeed, the embodiment of its very essence – is marble. Timeless and elegant in a way unparalleled by any other natural material, marble has now been reborn in ceramic form, bringing a touch of the classic style to any living space.

The Remix Marbre collection, with its 60×60 cm size, offers this most precious of nature’s raw materials with veining that encapsulates the eternal charm of marble. This inspiration is also reflected in the 30×60.4 cm size of Loop Marmo Bianco, a timeless shade.

However, thinking that the classic style is inextricably linked to marble textures alone would be a mistake: a stone effect, such as that offered by the Prisma collection, can prove equally sophisticated.  Its delicate, vein-free texture offers a harmonious balance between the traditional and the contemporary. What’s more, it just so happens to come in a handsome beige and a light, luminous pearl grey.

The role of graphics

Once the overall colour palette has been composed, it can always be livened up with graphic inserts, which can add a burst of dynamism without necessarily becoming excessive. These can be anything from objects to small pieces of furniture to fabrics – even a tasteful selection of ceramic wall coverings, carefully fitted.  To this end, cementine-effect tiles have the potential to be incredibly attractive. Whilst we have a wide range available in the catalogue, we have selected a handful that are best suited to the classic style.

White, grey and black, with hints of beige and powder blue: subtle shades that soften graphics with a somewhat retro feel, creating a certain timelessness.

Neo Villa

Beige and pastel blue are back, this time as highlights on decorative tiles in predominantly earthy tones. Here, the contrast is the focus, bringing out geometric shapes that seem to have passed unscathed through the centuries. Admiring them, one could easily mistake the room for the sumptuous interiors of an early 1900s villa.


Squares and diamonds, circles and semicircles come together to create desaturated geometric patterns that – with the restrained hand of taste – are the essence of elegance itself.
