ATTICA | NATURAL STONE
With more than 70 yea rs of exp erience in all aspects of natural stone, a nd after
a rece nt trip to the Marmomacc stone fair in Verona, the Attica tea m sha res its
insight on what’s happe ni ng in the world of tiles.
What have you picked up on i n recent travels to international fairs?
With a continuing trend for open-plan living, clients are looking for larger
tile fo rmats to capitalise on these spaces, o pting for a clean , mo dern look.
Whether it be for split-face cladding on the front of your home or a fence,
larger-size tiles make a big statement.
What can we expect for the year ahead?
Greys will continue to be a popular choice. Polished concrete is not
an option that everyone can afford, so people are looking for stone tiles
that give a similar charac ter to co ncrete. Clien ts are also beco ming
mo re bold in their tiling layouts. A simple way of creating an eleme nt
of interest in the ho me without choosing a sto n e tile that is overly
busy o r heavily charactered, is to co nsider laying the tiles in a pattern .
This is a big trend at the moment because it transforms the floor into
a tapestry of stone – a look that will suit both a very modern and a more
tradition al home. We’re fi nding clien ts aren’t wan ting their sto ne to be
plain or off-w hite anymo re. They a re after a produ ct with a difference,
particula rly something that shows fossils a nd refl ects the nature from
which it has been derived. Sto n e choices a re no lon ger minimal an d highly
selected, as clients are wan ting to see the flaws and imperfectio ns. Fro m
geometric simplicity to more fl uid o rgan ic forms, clients are n ow ex plo ri ng
new ways to incorporate texture and dimension into their space.
What products are really pushing the boundaries?
Thinned stone that can be adhered to glass is a really unique feature.
By thinning the stone, it creates a more minimal edge detail in furniture
an d architectu ral elements. Ony x , gra nite a nd marble are also ju st a few
ston es that can be lit fro m behind to make a dramatic featu re.
