Have you ever considered using large tiles for your interior design projects? Large marble-look porcelain stoneware tiles are perfect for decorating various types of surfaces like floors, countertops and walls. If you have ever found yourself looking on in dumbfounded awe at a classic work of art or monument then you can imagine the kind of spontaneous sensations that are generated by a house decorated with sumptuous and elegant marble-effect slabs.
Why are marble slabs so popular?
In recent years large slabs have become very fashionable: with their high-impact aesthetic effect and ability to make spaces appear larger, many people have understandably recognised their potential. If you choose large tiles in a lighter colour, for example, the room will appear brighter and harmonious and it will be possible to connect different spaces to create a sense of continuity throughout the house. In fact, you shouldn’t think of large stoneware slabs as demanding and unwieldy items: they are light, easy to lay and resistant.
Marble also has a distinctive pattern that has set it apart for centuries: its reproduction on large marble-effect ceramic slabs enables you to improve on the original, choosing from an extensive range of decorations and motifs which increase your customisation possibilities. Different shades, patterns and textures can be adapted to different purposes and the most diverse interior design tastes. Emilgroup has made these decoration details part of various collections of large slabs in order to enhance their aesthetic sophistication without compromising on construction quality and their faithfulness to the natural material.
The marble-look solutions include Tele di Marmo Selection by Emilceramica, a collection dominated by strong but extremely elegant contrasts, underlined where necessary by the Tarsia decor which, inspired by the ancient inlay technique, results in evocative floral motifs. The biggest of the large sizes is 120x278 cm with thickness of 6.5 mm. The timeless sophistication of Tele di Marmo by Emilceramica pays tribute to the classic architectural power of polished and authoritative marble: the four colour combinations (Breccia Braque, Calacatta Renoir, Frappuccino Pollock and Statuario Michelangelo) can be used alongside the Battuto di Listelli, Doghe (with the same colour scheme as the basic series) and Seminato di tessere options.
Then there is the eye-catching audacity of the Tele di Marmo Revolution by Emilceramica series, which offers a new interpretation of marble, a stone synonymous with beauty and eternity. This comes in the colours Thassos, Calacatta Black, Verde Saint Denis and Blu Ande with vaguely floral decorative combinations that are more discreet than those of the Tele di Marmo Selection.
The marble of the Tele Di Marmo Reloaded by Emilceramica collection is even richer and more elegant, its personal reinterpretation inspired by the worlds of art and architecture including the variants Quarzo Kandinsky, Calacatta Gold Canova, Fossil Brown Malevic, Onice Klimt and Marfil Ordoñez. As with the other collections, the largest oversize option measures 120x278 cm.
Bianco D'Italia by Provenza skilfully replicates the most famous marble in the world, that of Carrara: long synonymous with classical art, it is now the absolute protagonist of the most modern forms of architecture. The largest 59x118.2 cm size comes in three shades: Arabescato, Calacatta and Statuario.
Different stone, different effect: if a single marble solution doesn’t rock your boat, Unique Travertine by Provenza proposes the perfect blend of classic material and contemporary design, reinterpreting travertine in four different colours: Chocolate, Cream, Silver and White; with four decorations: Ancient, Minimal, Ruled, Vein Cut.
