New Tile Collection Inspired by Artistic Traditions of Watercolor Painting

LAS VEGAS, HD EXPO (May 15, 2019) ― Villa Lagoon Tile continues to push the boundaries of creating the unexpected in cement tile offerings with the launch of its new Watercolor Collection. Inspired by the traditions of watercolor painting, Villa Lagoon Tile is the first manufacturer to offer this dynamic, hand-made watercolor process for cement tiles.

Similar to watercolor paints where the pigments are suspended in water, Villa Lagoon Tile developed a unique and proprietary technique that allows the pigmented color to flow freely in the cement while still controlling the balance of negative space. The process is completely conducted by hand and requires no mold, which means no two tile patterns will ever be alike.

The watercolor tiles can be produced in multiple color combinations and are perfect for anyone who wants to imbue their distinctive personality into their living space. The combinations can be custom made and are ideal for residential designers who wish to evoke a sense of serenity and presence of artistry into their client’s homes. The collection is also perfect for designers charged by their hospitality clients to create a space that reinforces unique brand personality.

Also, these dynamic tiles are made to last: no printed-on color here. Similar to natural stone, each cement tile is unique with slight color variations, the sign of an artisan-made product. Installing cement tiles is similar to installing natural stone, with tighter grout lines and use of a sealant after the tiles are set.

New Cuban Tile Collection Highlights Rich, Architectural Style of Historic Havana

LAS VEGAS, HD EXPO (May 15, 2019) ― As part of its mission to create signature custom looks and unique design elements for hospitality and residential projects, Villa Lagoon Tile launches its new Cuban Collection, a set of authentic Cuban cement tile patterns and color combinations. The collection is inspired by both Havana and also the smaller, colonial towns rich in architectural beauty.

The Villa Lagoon Tile Cuban Collection is available in twenty patterns which are presented in colorways exactly or similar to those seen on historical Cuban floors and walls. Some of the patterns are appropriately named after Cuban dance and musical styles because the rich effect of the varied color tones, combined with the rhythm of the repeating patterns, can exude a feeling of motion and movement. The cement tile collection is also available in any of Villa Lagoon Tile’s 85 standard colors. Designers and consumers can go to the easy-to-use cement tile design tool to create a customized color combination.

“Villa Lagoon Tile’s Cuban Collection is inspired by a trip to Cuba that I took with my product designer to explore and document the rich heritage of cement tiles in the architecture,” said Lundy Wilder, founder, Villa Lagoon Tile. “We examined some of the most extraordinary designs that remain in Cuba after all these years, and all twenty patterns available in the new Cuban collection are authentic interpretations of this experience.”

Villa Lagoon Tile’s Cuban Collection cement tile is perfect for anyone who wants to create an authentic coastal atmosphere in a tranquil relaxation room, or an open gathering space in the home inspired by historic design from around the world. The Cuban Collection is also perfect for hospitality designers who want to create an atmosphere that emanates a tropical vibe as some of the colorways reflect the serene Caribbean beaches, while others echo the music and sounds of Havana.

These dynamic tiles are made to last: no printed-on color here. Similar to natural stone, each cement tile is unique with slight color variations, the sign of an artisan-made product. Installing cement tiles is similar to installing natural stone, with tighter grout lines and use of a sealant after the tiles are set.

Samples of the Cuban Collection can be shipped directly from the warehouse centrally located on the Gulf Coast.
