As Christmas approaches and we face the end of another year, we have a very happy announcement to make… The Porcel-Thin collection has a brand new family member, the Calacatta Antique Marble Book Match Tile. Combining something old with something new for a match made in heaven, this gorgeous thin marble effect porcelain tile is sure to marry with your interior styling to perfection.
Something old, something new…
Chosen by developers as the star of the show in beautiful bathrooms and for the entrance hall and staircase of luxury London apartments, our ever-popular Calacatta Marble Book Match Tile presents plenty of prestigious pizazz – with its pure white base and striking silver highlights.
Then there’s our Bianco Marble Book Match Tile with its more intricate charcoal veining. But our Calacatta Antique Marble Book Match Tile combines a current alternative to natural marble tiles, digitally printed with stunningly realistic marble patterning and an antique edge.
After a trip to the Ideal Home Show at Christmas, we reported that 2018’s interior design trends are very much “urban-luxe meets vintage-cool”. These new book-matched belles, designed so that adjoining tiles echo one another to give an opened book look, reveal the splendour of Calacatta marble with an old-gold finish.
Calacatta marble effect tile chameleon
In our recent comparison of Carrara and Calacatta marble, we identified that Calacatta marble effect tiles burst with opulence and boast pronounced veining on a mostly white background for maximum impact. Also, golden veining in addition to the usual silver/grey tones is not unusual for added grandeur.
The gorgeous golden highlights are what give our latest Calacatta marble effect tiles their antiqued edge. Their more varied neutral colour range adds a softness to the marble’s lavish look, meaning these thin porcelain tiles blend ideally with decors both contemporary and classic in theme.
As such, Porcel-Thin’s new Calacatta Antique Marble Book Match Tiles are the perfect choice for a feature wall in the lounge with a built-in fireplace, where natural marble won’t stand up to variable temperatures and daily wear, or in the bedroom where a warmer marble effect creates a cosy yet chic space.
