Get ready for some more serious tile eye candy because today is part two of the six tile trends I spotted at the Spanish tile show Cevisama. If you missed my first three trends you can catch up here.

Today’s post is mostly photos so grab a cup of coffee, sit back and enjoy the latest in tile trends.

4.Textile inspired tile trends

Textiles and porcelain have teamed up to create some beautiful new options for tiles. Some of the tiles looked so much like fabric that I had to touch them to believe they were porcelain. Plaids, prints, even herringbone tiles were on display at the show.

Shagreen (shark or ray skin) which is so popular right now for case goods is also a tile trend. You can’t tell in the photo but they feel exactly like real shagreen.

Plaid which is also trending for interiors was spotted on tiles. Wouldn’t this Burberry inspired plaid be fun for a mud room floor?

These new textile inspired tiles are possible because of new advances in both 3-D and ink jet printing technology. It’s amazing what they can do now that even a few years ago was not possible.

Beautiful white textile inspired tiles are right on trend yet have a longer “shelf life” than some of the bolder statement tiles above.

One of my favorite textile tile was this white lace tile. The tile is on top and the fabric inspiration is shown below it.

Porcelain tiles that resemble hammered or oxidized metal were especially popular. I see these being used more in a commercial space but they were absolutely gorgeous. The sizes and shapes varies from planks to large squares. Metallic tiles below, behind a vintage leather sofa reminded me of vintage gym lockers or the grill on a radiator cover.

3-D metallic tiles were another find from the show.

Copper looking wall tiles would make a beautiful statement black splash in a kitchen.

6. Geometric tile trends

Geometric tiles are also hot hot hot for tile trends. Not only for shape but in lay out as well.

Hexagon shaped tiles had a large presence at the show as did triangular and rhombus shaped designs.

So that wraps it up! I hope you enjoyed my tile trend pictorial. I want to give a huge thank you to Tile of Spain for opening my eyes to all the many choices in tiles today from Spain. My head is spinning with ideas and I can’t wait for my next project where I can specify tiles.

I’d love to hear from you. Which tile trend is your favorite?
