1 Series, 4 Ways: Modena

Posted by Barbara Haaksma on Aug 1, 2017 12:22:50 PM

In its third year trending, wood-look porcelain tile continues to thrive across residential and commercial interiors. Its range of aesthetics span from farmhouse to bohemian, while providing peace of mind as an alternative to hardwood in the ever-active interior environment.

At Emser Tile, we strive to create fashion-forward wood-look tiles that are versatile and will stand the test of time. A recreation of petrified wood in a 6” x 35” plank tile, Modena™ harks back to old Italy with its rustic character and charm. From smooth grays to earthy reddish-browns, the series is offered in five alluring wood tones: Alder, Cedar, Elm, Linden, and Spruce.

Discover how Modena lends character and movement to four unique spaces and transforms from rustic to chic through purposeful coloration.

In high-moisture environments where true hardwood cannot hold up, deliver a serene, spa-like feel with a wood-look accent wall that bounces off the white tile and tub. Porcelain tile enables you to achieve the sought-after petrified aesthetic without compromising performance.

For a dining area adjacent to an outdoor living space, use wood-look tile to carry the natural aesthetic inside. In this space, the neutral chairs and dining table allow the floor to shine, while an elegant centerpiece dresses up the gathering space. Modena also nicely complements the other foundational brown-toned elements throughout the home.

Rustic flooring can provide a striking contrast to a sharp city skyline or modern furnishings. In this space, two planes –flooring and wall-to-wall windows – draw the eye’s attention but with a balance of movement.
