We have recently taken on board two new, contemporary wall tiles which have been selling really well on the continent. These tiles are by a factory called Peronda, you may well recognise the name as they produce the Tile of The Year ‘Laccio’ which won earlier this year at the Tile Association Awards.
The first collection is called Granny. Don’t be put off by the name…it’s a really smart looking tile. We aren’t sure of the theory behind the name, but that aside, these tiles look super smart. The collection comes in a variety of colours and have taken inspiration from retro 80’s vibes but we have decided to keep it neutral and go with the nicest and most practical colour from it. We are stocking it in the white and the white décor, other colours can be ordered via special order but there would be a few weeks’ turnaround.
Granny Dotty Blanco is a glossy, 25x75cm white tile with a clever shadowed edge creating a bit of a 3D look to the tile when it meets the grout joint. The accompanying décor tile ‘Smith’ is made up of 3D angled squares and rectangles, great for creating an eye-catching, geometric feature wall.
Secondly, we’ve got Vibrato, another 25x75cm Peronda tile, except this one is a bit more stone-like. They’ve continued the theme of textured and 3D effects in this collection, which has been inspired by Aztec jungle stonework with undertones of cement and concrete worked in to it. You can see this reflected in the textures and designs of the décor tiles Tremolo and Spicatto especially. The plain tile is a light warm grey colour and its versatile tile’s stone-like appearance is suitable for settings of all kinds.
This collection is very contemporary chic, and the décor tiles will make fantastic feature panels or walls. The size of the tile is quite unique to Peronda at the moment too which makes them stand out from the crowd.
