rom ancient Greece to the present day and alternating moments when they were in favour to ones when they were forgotten, mosaics have kept intact the charm of a unique and refined type of elegance. Mosaics have always been favoured for their beauty and versatility, they are the ideal high-end finish for entire walls, but they can also be used for small decorative details like border tiles, wall mirrors, bathtub surrounds or a feature wall in your shower cubicle. Mosaics add a touch of class, enhancing the whole space.
Nowadays, mosaics are mass-produced but the principle has remained the same: tiny fragments in a resistant material, the so called tiles, which clad an entire surface. To make tiling easier, there’re pre-assembled sheets on a net or paper backing, a standard sheet is approx. 30x30 cm, and in general the grid pattern can also be customized. The materials used include natural stone, ceramics and glass paste, available in a vast range of colours, finishes and sizes.
We’ve asked Gabriele Mobrici of the Italian interior design store Casa è to illustrate the types of mosaics that are out-there and how to choose the style best suited to our home. Set up in 1946, for three generations interior design store Casa è in Polistena, South-Italy, has been bringing to its clientele only top quality and innovative materials.
