American Olean announced two new tile collections, each bringing the latest trends to life through Reveal Imaging, an advanced technology that allows porcelain tile to emulate the beauty of natural stone and wood. American Olean is able meet consumer’s growing demands for biophilic, or nature-inspired designs, while also providing the performance and durability of a porcelain tile.
“The trend of inviting the outdoors inside continues to be of interest among designers and homeowners and our contemporary twist on naturally occurring and found items provides even more design and accent options,” said Micah Hand, senior marketing manager of Dal-Tile, American Olean’s parent company. “The latest collections from American Olean provide elegant solutions with the trusted quality and durability that designers, architects and consumers have come to expect from our offerings.”
Surfaces with texture continue to increase in popularity within interior spaces, providing a splash of luxury and intrigue. The Bryson Valley collection offers an ultra-realistic barn wood visual with authentic hardwood texture. The rich warmth of real wood floors is presented in an 8” x 48” porcelain tile, appealing to designers and homeowners who prefer longer and wider planks. Incorporating Reveal Imaging™ to provide stunning realism and TruEdge technology for tighter grout joints, Bryson Valley is the pinnacle of an authentic wood-look tile.
Another nature-inspired collection, Rochester, blends two popular natural stones, limestone and pulpis marble. The limestone provides the back drop with its soft, sand-like movement and the pulpis marble provides beautiful, fine veining. The outcome is a simple stone look that adds a touch of class to any space. The beauty of this collection is further enhanced by chiseled edges, creating an even more authentic look. Three versatile color choices - white, gray and beige – are available in large format sizes for the floor, as well as 4” x 12” and 6” x 18” for wall. The series is complimented by a 1 ½” x 1 ½” hex mosaic to allow homeowners and designers even more customization with application.
