Cersaie is the largest tile show. It takes place every September in Bologna, Italy. Our team of buyers head out every year to keep up with the latest trends and make our selection of products for the year. Take a look at what trends were being showcased, and what you can expect to see in our store for 2019.
The elegant look of marble is still very strong. Being shown in their classic colours and in many new sizes. It’s all about the large formats such as 24”x24”, 16”x32”, 24”x48”.
Many suppliers have re-introduced an existing collection in the slab format. This porcelain slab can be used as a counter top, backsplash, shower wall, etc.
Traditionally, the terrazzo look was made by exposing marble chips on the surface of concrete and then polishing it until smooth. This look has made a strong comeback, and is available now in a tile form. It’s stunning and adds a beautiful detail to any room.

As much as the large formats are very popular, we saw a lot of smaller formats. These small sizes, typically 8”x8” and 12”x12” are very detailed. Whether it is with colour or a pattern. Perfect for a small space, or an area where you want to make a statement.

The warm tones of grey and whites are still very popular. However this year we also saw a lot of blues and greens. Not only in tiles but also in the furniture.
