When I visited Venice, Italy back in 2008 with the press team from the Cersaie tile show, I must admit I was caught completely off-guard. Never one to dream of going to that city in particular, it wasn't the gondolas that had me snapping photos. Instead, it was the way the tile we saw was used in mosaic form to cover furniture and art. Using the old-fashioned Italian model for mosaic art, Settecento combines the small glass pieces with their brand new Lacche Collection.

Smooth, Glass Mosaic-Inspired Pieces Create the Lacche Tile Collection by Settecento.
In today's market, tiles are becoming thinner, easier to produce, and yet more resilient to duress. Taking the know-how they've honed since the company began in 1969, Settecento's research and design intuition has made a glossy tile collection known as the Lacche Collection to keep the feel of mosaic tiles from the past in a 12"x 12" size.
The Lacche Collection - with the smooth, glass-like look of river stone - uses irregular shapes with a clear emphasis on staying true to their mosaic roots. The surface comes in eight different colors, two of them have a white background and six with a black background. Each of the effects is visually stunning for the wall or in a limited d©cor area in combination with paint or plaster.
For the ultimate in a polished, mosaic tile that is available in eight different colors, the Settecento experience sets the stage for a must-have, avant-garde look within interior or architectural projects worldwide.
About the Manufacturer: In 1969, the company known as "Settecento - Mosaici e Ceramiche D'Arte" was started in Fiorano Modenese. Marking the place where the best of Italian ceramic tiles began, the company became it's modern version of Settecento in 1993 after a buyout, and has since made its niche in high-end, Italian mosaic tiles with a strong leadership in interior design and furniture solutions.
