Trompe l’oeil leads the way for tile trends in 2013, as tile makers such as Ceramica Sant’Agostino, Fioranese and Refin Ceramiche, amongst others, perform visual alchemy. Creative new tile stamping, printing and mosaic processes make it easy to deceive the eye. Now ceramic, porcelain and stone tiles can be designed to faithfully mimic natures most exquisite woods – from Mahogany to Oak to Cherry and more.
