Menswear trends have inspired Walker Zanger’s Sterling Row collection, which incorporate marble and wood-look porcelain tiles in gray, black and white tones.

The Sterling Row collection is inspired by the elegant feel of fine fabrics, the richness of burnished leather and the luxuriously appointed shops of the finest tailors in London, Manhattan and Paris.

“Using modern water-jet technology, we were able to create delicate and distinctive patterns in wood-finish ceramic, precisely fitted with marble. It’s a novel take on a classic theme that has applications in varying scales for floors and walls, and for residential and commercial venues alike.” –  Jared Becker, Vice President of Design and Marketing

Sterling Row’s ten distinctive patterns offer designers a wealth of  decorative options for floors or walls, alongside the  technical advantage of impervious porcelain, which can be used in any residential, and most commercial applications.

Perfectly Nonperfect Ceramic Wood Planks

It seems everyone wants to emulate the true look of wood while having the ease of care found in ceramics – but who wouldn’t?

Dakota by Flaviker is so realistic, it looks aged, stained and even has tiny worm holes.

Dakota by Flaviker | KitchAnn Style

Dakota takes its name from the North American landscape at the time of the pioneers, when men were colonising the great open spaces using materials provided by the land itself.  The collection is inspired by planks made of alder, a timber that is widely used in construction and interior finishes, and is characterized by natural imperfections caused by ageing.

The planks are offered in four sizes: 16″ x 68″, 8″ x 68″, 8″ x 48″ and 8″ x 32″ A 3D tile, perfect for vertical surfaces, is offered 8″ x 32″ and looks like two 4″ planks.  Stair pieces are also available.

The Dakota finishes are very natural and sophisticated. You can choose between Naturale (Natural), Avana (Havana) Grigio (Gray) and Tortora (Turtledove). The rectified planks are produced with a slight convex shape for easier installation. They self-level under their own weight.

Design Obsession

Kitchann Style Tile Trends
I seem to be Obsessed with Arabesque tile these days. It doesn’t matter if they are glass,  painted clay or somewhere in between – I like them all.

The traditional Moroccan shape adds old world texture without adding a lot of pattern. The tile can look contemporary or antique depending on the material and color you select and the installation process.

Bamboo Subway Tile

This Bamboo Subway tile offered by AnchorBayTile.com was developed as a complement to bamboo flooring.

The bamboo tile collection is available in four contemporary colors with coordinating trim and decorative pieces. It is suited only for interior dry areas in residential applications such as kitchen backsplashes and wainscoting in entry ways or bedrooms.

These tiles are great for DIY projects since they can be installed with a simple construction adhesive like Liquid Nails and a standard non sanded grout. Since these tiles are real wood, be mindful of their placement near cooktops and ranges.

These tiles are manufactured in the US by Anchorbaytiles.com
