coverings 2023: recap and trends

Dave, Conor, and Alissa had an incredible time at?Coverings, the country's largest and most prominent yearly tile exhibition. More than 1,000 of the best tile and stone?manufacturers?from across the globe attended to show off their most innovative collections, so we're here to recap our findings and share which tile trends seem to be making the biggest splash in 2023.


Undulated Tile



Undulated refers to tile that has an ever-so-subtly uneven surface. These precise "imperfections" create a softly striking appeal and bring a quality of effortlessness to the design. While numerous manufacturers featured tile with this technique, the pictured selection above is part of the?Casbah Collection?from?WOW Tile.

Large Format Porcelain



Another standout trend from the convention was large format?porcelain, such as the sophisticated and dimensional examples pictured here. There?s nothing that leaves an impact quite like?floor-to-ceiling tile, and the minimal number of grout joints contributes to creating a polished finish. For more examples of brilliant porcelain in large-format or mosaic styles, check out?Artistic Tile?s top-notch offerings.

Bold Mosaics



Exhibits displaying bright and funky?mosaics?were plentiful, giving the classic tile interpretation a fresh and?exciting spin. We particularly loved this arrangement from?Marble System's?Tessa Mosaic Collection, which burst off the walls with its?playful patterns?and warm-toned color scheme.

Terrazzo and Cobbled Tile



Terrazzo and cobbled tiles are aggregated styles that combine multiple small pieces of material to create eye-catching designs. Reminiscent of old-world artistry with hints of modern influence, these visually compelling tiles bring an abundance of charm and character to any space. For more inspiration, take a look at?Walker Zanger?s?collection of?terrazzo?and aggregate-style tiles.

Patterned Tile



Rounding out our trends recap is?patterned tile, which resulted in significantly more enticing and?vibrant?exhibits. Colorful?ceramics?lined the walls of numerous displays this year, and for more selections like these, we recommend browsing?Adex USA?s?new?Levante collection?of captivating and unique glazed designs.
