We've added a new material into the mosaics collection: Glazed Stone. A layer of glass has been fused to the stone backing by extreme heat, resulting in a depth of colour and making each individual piece unique. The two glazed stone mosaic sheets that are vying for your attention are Sioux and Cheyenne. Go as mild or as wild as you like with just a hint of leopard or a wall-to-wall showstopper.
More glazed stone can be seen combined with metal, in Yiska, Doba and Huata. These stylish colour mixes are no shrinking violets either, bringing colour and reflection to bathroom and kitchen alike.
Meanwhile, washing up just got more exciting -add a sprinkle of Agra glittery glass mosaics for some kitchen sink drama (Marigolds are optional). Sparkling Agra would also dazzle in a bathroom or shower.
Moody good looks
Is dark and mysterious more your style? Black is always a strong look, particularly in bathrooms, and our four new mixed materials mosaics Raipur, Patna, Kauali and Bihar will work beautifully as a shower wall or perhaps as an alcove in a wet room wall.
Ming and Marmo are mosaics made from porcelain, which is a hard wearing surface suitable for walls in most locations around the home. Inspired by the splendour of antique Japanese porcelain vases and vessels, they will bring a sense of calm to a bathroom.
Mosaics are not just for walls. Floors get the treatment too, with Ardes, a slate-effect porcelain which is suitable for floors in kitchens and bathrooms and most interior floors in between. Our marble Basketweave in White with Black Dot and Black with White Dot are based on classic designs. Marble is a natural stone, so each mosaic sheet will be subtly different, giving you something unique and beautiful to enjoy for years to come.
