Crossville recently announced the launch of Retro Active 2.0, a versatile porcelain tile collection with fashion-forward colors, patterns, and size options. This domestically-produced line offers designers inventive solutions to create customized looks for commercial and residential projects.
According to Lindsey Waldrep, Crossville’s vice president of marketing, Retro Active 2.0 is an evolution of the company’s Retro Active line that has been a popular favorite in the catalog for many years.
“Reto Active 2.0—and the all-new Retro Active Patterns—are the next generation for a collection that’s been a staple in our product line-up,” said Waldrep. “This new launch offers an updated color palette that speaks to current and future design sensibilities. The Patterns offer texture and beautifully crafted detailing to create installations that are uniquely functional and fashionable.”
Waldrep shares that Crossville’s product development team envisioned Retro Active 2.0 collection as an answer to specifiers’ ongoing need for go-anywhere surfacing solutions that transcend trends. The Crossville design team opted to create this collection with through-body color in a spectrum of contrasting hues, as well as rectilinear size options to answer nearly any project challenge.
The collection offers 13 colors (Antico Taupe, Seal Taupe, Featherstone, Empress White, Snow Blind, Roasted Chestnut, Leaden, Mecurial, Phantom, Armor, Gulf Breeze, Racing Green, and Royal Navy) in unpolished or polished finishes. Retro Active 2.0 Pattern tiles are also offered in the 13 colors in a textured finish, and work in tandem with the non-pattern tiles or on their own to give dimension to designs. The collection is available in seven field tile sizes: 3x12 in., 4x12 in., 4x24 in., 6x12 in., 6x24 in., 12x12 in., and 12x24 in. To create fully finished looks, the collection also includes the 2x4 in. mosaic, cove base with inside and outside corners, and bullnose offered in each color.
As with all products produced at Crossville’s Tennessee manufacturing facilities, Retro Active 2.0 is responsibly made in the U.S., contains a minimum of 4% pre-consumer recycled content, and is Green Squared certified. Retro Active 2.0 is recommended for interior floors, walls, and countertops, as well as exterior walls, in commercial and residential settings.
