Keeping In Step he latest design trends are heavily influenced by natural elements. From the rugged intricate patterns in stone to the influx of greenery to the rich character of wood, nature-inspired pieces are making state- ments throughout the home. When discussing flooring, standard wood planks and predictable tile designs have yielded to concrete tiles in bold patterns, wood- and marble-look porcelain and hardwoods that add style and dimension. Technological advances, too, have made a difference in the appearance of flooring materials, with photographic transfer capabilities providing du- plication of natural resources and advanced machinery delivering creative tile cuts and edges that result in a whole new look. This month, Kitchen & Bath Design News showcases some of the most recent entries to the kitchen and bath flooring market. 1. Inspired by dark-colored, fine-grained basalt, Basalto from Marazzi offers smooth monochromatic style. The collection is available in four neutral colors in 12"x24" or 24"x24" large-format sizes, and also includes 2cm-thick outdoor pavers in 32"x32" and 20"x40". Crafted with Italian precision, Basalto is a Colorbody porcelain tile. Circle No. 205 on Product Card 2. Neolith's cementitious New York New York, available for flooring applica- tions in ¼" thickness, is influenced by that city's energy, iconic avenues and majestic skyscrapers, according to the firm. With distinctive gray tones, it offers an on-trend, urban style, incorporating a full-body edge that makes it highly realistic, the company adds. Circle No. 206 on Product Card 3. New Ravenna has introduced Bright Young Things, a collection of 26 mosaics in stone and glass with shell, brass, aluminum and zinc accents. The collection introduces two new finishes: the leather-worn surface of Orpheus Black stone, seen in Beaton, Lya and Lytton, and the hand-sanded metals in Huxley, with a velvet texture and brilliant shine. Shown is Bismarck Grand Aloe, which reflects cubist influences. Circle No. 207 on Product Card 4. American Olean's Ideology delivers the classic look of marble in con- temporary porcelain designs. Updated larger sizes, geometric mosaics and decorative tile options provide designers the option of inserting marble veining into room designs. The glazed porcelain products are available in three colors: Vein-Cut Calacatta, Lasa and Carrara. Circle No. 208 on Product Card 5. Kelly Wearstler has designed the Liaison Collection for Ann Sacks using a wide range of marbles. The collection's 23 mosaic designs are comprised of richly colored stones, delivering distinctive designs for the home. Shown is the Palm Design, which includes the latest shade to be added to the collection: Lilac – a soft, grayish violet with cream veining. Circle No. 209 on Product Card 6. Florida Tile has introduced Tuscan Villa HDP, a travertine-inspired porcelain tile produced using High Definition Porcelain printing technology. The undula- tions on the tile surface create a timeworn texture, while the soft feel is a contrast to the durability and slip resistance provided, notes the firm. The tile is available in Arezzo Ivory, Cortona Beige and Florence Silver. Each color is available in 6"x6", 12"x12" and 12"x24" field tiles; a 36-piece mosaic, and a 3"x12" bullnose.
