Mosaics – which are the most popular and why?
Friday 27 March 2015, Written by Sarah Cole Tags: Mosaics
When we are preparing to launch a new product, it's always helpful for us to go back to the drawing board and look at what's popular already. In preparing our next launch (new mosaic, coming very soon) we looked into our existing mosaics collections to see what your favourite products are.
The results were really encouraging, as they showed lots of brave choices and exciting materials. So let's take a closer look at what's hot…
Neutral and natural stone mosaics, unsurprisingly, feature in the top sellers. Ivory Samoa pebble mosaics feature, as do the Beige Hawaii pebbles. Both of these are perfect for sanctuary or costal style bathrooms and for those who prefer a natural look
Shell mosaics, such as Purity and Pearl Brickbond are also very popular, especially in bathrooms and spa environments. They have a soft iridescence which makes them easy to live with and incredibly luxurious.
Floor mosaics are still important, with lots of homeowners choosing Basketweave, Black & White Honeycomb andClassic Octagon and Dot styles. As these are made from porcelain, they are incredibly hard wearing and slip resistant, combining practicality with good looks. These form part of our Artworks range so it's easy to find a complementary wall tile to finish off your space.
On the opposite end of the spectrum, our opulent Eastern Light gold mosaics are top of the pile, showing the power of metallics and just how many people are making bold design choices. Lombok, a gorgeous mosaic made of a mix of bamboo, metal and glass and Alchemy, a copper mosaic, are a nod to the longstanding trends for contrasting materials and copper.
If you've ever considering joining the dark side but haven't quite been able to take the plunge, take heart! Our customers are not afraid of deep, inky hues - Magalia and Jungfrau both have their spot in the best sellers. Each of these has an iridescent or gold fleck effect which helps to reflect the light.
