Anyone who follows the ceramic tile category knows the Europeans are primarily responsible for most of the cutting-edge designs and innovations that we eventually see in the U.S. market. One of the major shows, Cersaie, revealed quite a bit for 2017.

“This year, fresh styles emerged as materials were combined in groundbreaking ways, traditional stone and wood look tiles reached new aesthetic heights, and advances in performance properties affirmed that Italian ceramic tiles are some of the highest quality building materials in the world,” says Kristin Coleman, a marketing rep for Ceramic Tiles of Italy

Trends, Coleman, included an emphasis on texture and a continued focus on brilliantly conceived high-profile designer collaborations. “These trends are sure to influence interiors and complement great architecture in the years to come,” She adds.

In previous years, large sizes, textile-inspired looks, and metallic looks emerged as hot introductions. Though these products are still popular in the residential (and hospitality) market, other innovations have emerged.

Marble inspirations were hot at this year’s show, as was rustic modern and retro-inspired tiles. Texture, which has been holding strong for many years, continues unabated and is one of the hottest looks from this year’s show.

Here are top 10 trends that came out of the 2016 show:

Once you start seeing this clean line and transitional used more in buildings and apartment building construction, the less likely high end homeowners are going to want it.

That's the perceft insight in a thread like this.

Sorry, These tiles are just about as ugly as 1960's wallpaper.
I want something that pulls me in not give me a headache. Something soft, suggesting water flowing or silk-like fabric blowing on a zephyr. Driftwood curves, gentle whitecaps, wave-formed beach sand. Something with gentle movement.
Kitchens need something else, but not what was pictured above. Sorry to be so brutal. M.H.
