Exploring the latest materials and aesthetics with which to create custom spaces, Emser Tile is excited to introduce a versatile product portfolio designed to energize environments at HD Expo 2018 in Las Vegas, May 2-4. As we celebrate our 50th anniversary, myriad trending textures, colors and scales illustrate our ongoing commitment to bringing leading-edge tile and natural stone collections to the architecture and design industry.

More than 20 new collections reflect the latest hospitality design trends, including:

  • Dynamic textures and shapes, from intricate lace overlays to softened concrete
  • Mixed-material mosaics ideal for artful accents or statement wall installations
  • Alluring wood-look planks with natural details and unique color variation
  • Dual interior and exterior applications for connected indoor/outdoor environments

“As we celebrate 50 years of Emser Tile, we are carrying out our foundational commitment to provide innovative tile and stone collections at the forefront of today’s and tomorrow’s design,” shared Barbara Haaksma, Emser Tile Vice President of Marketing. “Our range of new collections at HD Expo 2018 speaks to both boutique environments designed for niche markets to large hospitality brands that must have universal appeal.”

Our spotlighted series at the show include, among others:

Lace Overlay Wall Tile

Emser Tile_Motif_Bone
Motif rediscovers the ebb and flow of decorative patterns found in visual art. A delicate lace overlay defines this glazed ceramic subway tile collection with both visual and printed texture. With a selection of neutrals, the collection's understated texture and glossy finish combine to create a wave-like aesthetic.

Mixed-material Mosaic

Emser Tile_Glitz_Love room
Glitz is a collection of shimmering mosaics that evoke a captivating aesthetic with brush-like movement. Metallic accents and layered texture take form in hexagon glass and metal shapes. An array of eye-catching color variations — Fame, Glory, Joy, Love and Value — evoke feeling through artful form. 

Concrete- and Terrazzo-Look Porcelain

Facade Ivory room-1
Façade showcases a new take on the concrete look trend with an added plaster effect for a softened aesthetic. The collection features a range of cool and warm neutrals — White, Ivory, Gray, Taupe and Graphite — each with slight variations achieved through high-definition inkjets. 18” x 36”, 12” x 24” and 2” x 2” mosaics enable numerous design applications and lay the foundation for complementary design elements.

Emser Tile_Terazio (1)
Terazio is an alluring recreation of terrazzo in a cost-efficient porcelain tile with inherent performance benefits for commercial spaces. High-definition inkjets in neutral earth tones create natural speckled variations on the surface. With customizable large format sizes available through special order, Terazio emulates a smooth, groutless appearance and acts as an ideal complement to a variety of patterned coordinates.

Wood-look Planks

Emser Tile_Porch_Midnight
Porch features subtle wood grain movement that flows across tile planks. Caramel- and coffee- inspired tones lend subtle color variation to interior and exterior floors, walls and fireplace façades. An understated satin finish completes the glazed porcelain tile for enhanced visual depth.
