Wall Tile

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 a selection of neutrals, the collection's understated texture and glossy finish combine to create a unique aesthetic.

Emser Tile_Nuovo_Cube and Zelda.jpg
Nuovo brings undeniable glamour and sophistication to interiors through form and texture in a glazed ceramic wall tile. A beautiful display of shadow and dimension, distinct large-scale geometry is enhanced with small-scale etched and combed details that refract light and complement other textures. 


Emser Tile_Intrigue_Chevron Gray Fawn.jpg
Intrigue is inspired by the layers of texture that arise in porcelain, glass and marble mixed-material mosaics. A range of neutral overtones is woven together in a design-forward chevron pattern. With a glossy finish, the collection further heightens an elegant, large-scale wall design.

Emser Tile_Echo_Brown Herringbone (2).jpg
A dynamic union of shape, pattern and sustainability, Echo hexagon and herringbone mosaics are crafted with recycled white, gray, brown and calacatta-look glass. Finished with inkjet prints of wood grain and calacatta marble patterns, the series is ideal for kitchen and bath surfaces.

Floor and Wall Porcelain Tile

Terazio is an alluring recreation of terrazzo attributes in a durable porcelain tile. High-definition inkjets in neutral earth tones create natural speckled variations on the surface. Available in various shapes and sizes, Terazio provides a smooth, luminous finish for residential and commercial surfaces and acts as an ideal complement to a variety of patterned coordinates.

Wood Look

Lakewood and Lakehouse

An ode to the beautiful biodiversity of aged trees, Lakewood and Lakehouse intertwine to breathe life into contemporary surfaces in 8” x 34” glazed porcelain planks. While Lakewood grounds the design with distinct wooden tones that evoke rich detail and texture, Lakehouse acts as an accent motif with bold color variation.

Natural Stone

Metro Blue

A collection of tiberwood, cement and travertine looks created solely for exterior surfaces, Xtra is offered in large format tiles for outdoor accent walls and 2-centimeter pavers for endless design opportunities across surfaces.
