The charm and beauty of stone tiles, coupled with the latest in technological innovation, has resulted in a revolution in the porcelain stoneware market – not only in terms of design and texture, but also as being able to offer the same allure as real stone, at a fraction of the cost.
Taking its inspiration for stone as it occurs in nature, Italian-based Casalgrande Padana introduced its latest stoneware collection, titled Nature and Petra.
Consumers can now revel in the imperfect veining effects and colours featured in a perfectly balanced range of colours. Delicate earthy and sandy shades, neutral and grey tints and tones with a modern, natural design blend with the imperfections left by the passage of time, revealing traces of memory anchored in the past.
Function, form and style
The material appeal of the porcelain stoneware tiles in the Nature and Petra collections turns a stylish entrance into a contemporary living space, where sophisticated, elegant solutions are shaped into creative coverings with a vintage, rustic, country, Provençal, shabby chic or modern, minimalist flavour.
From floors to walls, both indoors and outdoors, in residential buildings as well as more challenging projects in the public sphere, both for new constructions and the recovery and restoration of existing buildings, every surface is covered with porcelain stoneware tiles inspired by the natural elegance of stone.
Rich, rigorous, confident and audacious, Petra by Casalgrande Padana is derived from a combination of natural materials and modern intuition, to create a collection that teams the elegant beauty of quartzite with the resistance and versatility of porcelain stoneware.
Thanks to their 20mm thickness, the stone-effect stoneware tiles in the Nature and Petra collections are also suitable for use outdoors. They can be glued to screed, guaranteeing excellent load resistance, or dry-laid directly on sand, gravel or grass, for flooring that can be walked on immediately.
In addition, thanks to the natural surface for indoors and the anti-slip surface for outdoors, flooring and coverings can be designed with perfectly matching colours and materials, or with pleasantly contrasting shades.
