sland Stone’s new Impressions collection reimagines concrete’s unique look in a glass tile medium, allowing the aesthetic to apply to a much broader range of products. Inspired by the natural variations of concrete tiles, Impressions glass tiles feature color hues blended in subtle, mesmerizing patterns on the glossy surfaced, fused glass. Placed together, the diverse and distinctive tiles create a naturally flowing and visually stunning look, which offers a calm alternative to the complex patterns commonly found in glass tiles.
“The natural variations found in concrete tiles offer broad appeal for modern and contemporary designs, but the medium is limited in where it can be used, and the look that can be achieved,” said Nigel Eaton, CEO of Island Stone. “Impressions has overcome this limitation by adding dimension, color and movement to the glass medium, which is appropriate for any environment, including exterior and wet areas.”
The Impressions collection features three distinct colors – Fossil Gloss, Glacier Gloss and Horizon Blue Gloss. Fossil and Glacier feature light variations of browns and grays respectively, while Horizon Blue ushers in subtle blue tones. The collection features modern subway tiles in elegant 2- x 8- and 3.5- x 12-inch sizes. Each size is offered in a varied mix of patterns, across different tiles to ensure a naturally varied appearance and sense of movement when placed en masse.
