The Spanish ceramic tile manufacturing industry is known for being one of the most innovative and dynamic in the world and the 35th edition of Cevisama, which took place at Feria Valencia, Spain, in February, proved no different.
This year’s fair saw many timeless and neutral materials in a wide range of formats. Reproductions of stone, marble, wood and cement are still on trend, whilst other effects include pure metals, steel, terrazzo and “stracciatella” finishes. Decorators are also experimenting with textures, geometric shapes, colour and movement.
