There’s no doubt that texture is in for interiors and the latest tile range from Tile MegaMart certainly celebrates the trend. A great alternative to safe solid neutral tiles, these hand-etched and embossed tiles add a fair bit more interest without requiring you to go out on a massive trend-driven limb. In short, they’re a great way of adding some depth and interest while keeping your colour scheme fairly monochromatic.
It’s a look that featured prominently at this year’s Milan Design Fair and we love the earthy feel of the trend. “Beautiful pieces of seemingly hand-etched stone, in richly earthy hues, are the very latest design crush for wall tiles,” says Marita Blaschka, design director of Tile MegaMart.
The slightly irregular nature of these tiles gives them a lovely worn-in look that works so well with the materials of the moment – timber, stone and concrete. We love how some of them look like pressed tin. “Each rectangular matte tile features a repeat relief pattern designed to be used in a mix to create a very personalised look for interior walls,” says Marita.
“These wall tiles are suitable for bathrooms, kitchens and living areas, are the perfect balance between pattern and texture and create rich visual interest that is cleverly understated,” says Marita of the range of rectangular tiles that measure 150 X 220mm. “The relief pattern on each tile is even further enhanced by the natural play of light and shadow. Tiles can be laid in any order,” says Marita. Made to mix and match and available in four hues – mud, grey, white and black – the tiles retail for $85 per square metre making them fairly kind on the hip pocket too.
