HOW DO YOU LIKE THEM ORGANIC APPLES?

ORGANIC AESTHETIC IN YOUR HOME'S DESIGN

You want it for your food, clothing, and the products you use to clean your home. Why not go organic and natural with the materials that make up your interior design too? Not only can you embrace sustainable materials, you can have the sleek, sophisticated, and elegant look of the organic aesthetic.

Organic and natural styling has made a huge impact on architecture and interior design in recent years. The closer to natural looks you can get the better.

We're talking the look of stone, wood, glass, and metal in materials you can count on to look as organic as they feel. And they are on-trend in more than one way. Not only is the organic look an of-the-now design trend, it also features plenty of gray and white in the color palette, which is both timelessly neutral, and lends a sense of contemporary style. Highly variable patterns keep things interesting and the gloss of metallic and glass smooth things out.

There are three natural-look trends that have been gaining enormous popularity lately—marble, glass, and metallic—and Daltile has answered the call with these two new options:

River Marble™: The Look of Natural Marble, The Flexibility of Porcelain
Marble is an enduring look that you'll find in the most elegant structures around the world throughout all history. Our latest addition to our stone-look products takes the drama of the most beautiful marble in the world and translates that into a durable, easy-to-care-for porcelain tile. The flexibility of porcelain allows you to explore new and exciting ways to use the flowing look of marble in designs where natural marble isn't an option. Here are the River Marble basics:

  • Available in matte and polished finishes
  • Can be used on floors or walls
  • Four rectangular sizes including two plank sizes: 12 x 36, 8 x 36, 6 x 24, 12 x 24
  • Five colors neutral colors with heavy veining for elegant visual movement

Crystal Shores™: Organic-Inspired Glass Mosaic
Like crystals and metals shimmering just beneath the water's surface, this mosaic radiates with natural elegance. The deeply vibrant tones speak of all things water from an ocean lagoon to a stormy afternoon. The crackled, crystalized glass grounds the vibrancy with a sense of natural history and makes this mosaic perfect for making a showpiece of walls or backsplashes. Here’s what you can expect:

  • Six color blends inspired by the colors of the sea
  • 2 x 1 inch brickjoint and random linear styles available
  • Mesh mounted sheets can be used whole or cut into strips for customized designs
 

These two new products have enough range that you can pair them up with other materials or feature them alone and get a dazzling effect either way. Create your own oasis of organic styling with tile that doesn’t just reproduce nature but translates it into an engaging, imaginative environment.
