“Texture is the most enduring and ubiquitous underpinning of form.” - Lynda Lehmann 

Looking to add something extra to a space - the type of quality that visitors want to reach out and touch? Embrace the powerful, and occasionally overlooked, design element of texture to enhance residential and commercial environments with unique reflective qualities.

We dive into the intricacies of four Emser collections inspired by the beauty of texture.

From sophisticated, neutral colors to a beautiful chevron pattern, use the appeal of textile-inspired texture to draw the eye to the floor or wall. The refined textures of bespoke suiting fabrics, such as linens and silk tweeds, find new form in hard-surface tile. Inspired by the timeless look of Italian menswear, Dunham™ delivers a durable and sustainable glazed porcelain finish with the subtle illusion of finely textured fabric.

Natural elements such as light and shadow add to the beauty of texture in materials with reflective qualities. With linear, 3D, and high textures available in hexagon and wedge shapes that shift and transform, Code™ uses light and shadow to challenge the status quo while offering endless design opportunities for every surface. 



Simple hues like white and gray convey texture in a subtle way. Like the waves of the water, Surface™ reveals its unique textures through white and gray with a myriad of patterns including arabesque, beehive, diamond, ivy, linear, plain, ripple, twill, matrix, and mosaic.

Winter Frost

Marble varies in color and veining from stone to stone, and these naturally occurring variations contribute to its distinctive appeal. Adding textural elements to color variation enable collections like Winter Frost to take on a unique aesthetic. Enhance the mosaic even further with a polished finish that creates a reflective surface. From elegant classics to decorative floral-inspired patterns, Winter Frost has expanded to include 13 additional textural stone mosaics.
