Boutique Design New York—a leading indicator of trends for luxury hospitality and lifestyle design— just wrapped up a whirlwind two days of this curated creative event, showcasing everything from lighting to wool rugs, architectural panels to beds. In short, any furnishing, fixture, or surface covering that adorns the spaces of the world's most-sought hospitality venues (nor is there anything to stop these products from appearing in the home)...
Emilgroup's Ergon tile.
Environmentally friendly manufacturer Casalgrande Padana presented the new Era collection, a propitious combination of stone and porcelain stoneware offering a unique aesthetic and excellent technical performance.
The company's Fusion line aims for a more industrial look by duplicating the effects of metal oxidation and chrome plating, as seen in the otherworldly shimmer of walls and floor in this boutique spa space.
Among the kaleidoscopic oeuvre of Dado Ceramica, we find the Living and Wallpaper collections. The former features brick-shaped glass tiles in a spare yet stunning palette of icy whites, greens, and blues. The latter uses innovative processing techniques to create ultra-thin porcelain stoneware panels that can outfit an entire wall just like wallpaper.
Marca Corona parlays the power of the petite with the Miniature collection, featuring 6x24 cm glass effect stoneware tiles: "a treasure trove of inspirations from materials worked by skillfull craftsmen proposing stylistic experiments."
Lastly, Settecento breaks new aesthetic ground with Lichen and Dots, two different yet equally dramatic collections, the one evoking classic marble with its dynamic veining, and the other offering a textural tour de force that resembles ancient hieroglyphs.
