Aluminium and Copper
Aluminium and copper, something a little different and adding a little extravagant look to your walls and floors. Aluminium gives you the look. I’m confident you can definitely say this is the top of the list if you are wanting a light reflecting, rich and expensive looking walls. We are loving the way these tiles hit the spots. These interlocking strips of pearly textures with hints of silver, greys, stainless steel, brushed aluminium steel blends and shimmer if you love sparkle this is a must.
Versatile in the way you can work with the smaller pieces its possible to design horizontal and vertical designs, edging and all look as good, amazing really!.
Where copper tones lends itself to the industrial look that is so on trend and up to date right now. Warm cosy rays of rose golds and hints of warm cosiness and reflective edges. Teamed with dark Hugh, black, navy blues and peacock green and teal you can create a luxury you can afford to indulge in every day.

Dune’s Emporio Collection
Dune’s Emporio Collection An example of Terrazzo, a 200 x 200 format tile. To get the most authentic and traditional effect, should be laid all mixed up in a random style. You can say these stunning little pretty mosaics are as chic as the history of the Italian buildings they are inspired by. The small stone tesserae are painstakingly placed on to a strengthened cement backing before being polished to a gloriously tactile soft finish. In grays and pale wishy washy stunning effect, we can say these are a true work of art reproducing a traditional technique, soft and smooth to touch in a modern way the result delivering a true piece for us modern living people to treasure for many years also.
Emporio This tile size is also available in plain formats that can be installed in a more conventional style.
Interesting to know: tesserae: a small block of stone, tile, glass, or other material used in the construction of a mosaic. “Roman remains including tesserae have been found” (in ancient Greece and Rome) a small tablet of wood or bone used as a token.
Research indicates that there is a strong improve not move of culture and sophisticated choice in the UK that is helping to stimulate the tile market. We are finding more and more Printed and hand painted Porcelain and Ceramic’s that appear to be dominating the product mix that is now being offered in showrooms all around the UK from all walks of distributors and suppliers. A continuous demand for natural stone and natural slate from discerning clients. A healthy demand and fabulous selection is very good for our customers.
