t Cersaie, the international tile and bathroom fixtures and fittings fair in Bologna, we tried and tested all the newest products in the field. This is what’s hot: finishes that mimic the material qualities of marble, natural colours, textured patterns and bold graphics. This year, interior design nods to vintage aesthetics and brings out cutting edge ideas for bathrooms, walls and floors. We’ve been spotted stroking tiles that could have been made out of fabric (or marble, timber or stone), we’ve admired elegant retro-inspired silhouettes and we’ve been captivated by hi-tech devices included in most new accessories. Here, all the hottest pieces are high in design value, as well as being inspired by the natural world, the decorative arts and the world of high-fashion.
