Updated neutral tones, fresh takes on metallics, and innovative textures make it easier to achieve a distinctive look than ever before.
Full Circle: Kathali
The Kathali line features wood shavings from rebuilding efforts after the devastating 2015 earthquake in Nepal and celebrates the brand’s collaborations with Nepalese craftspeople and business leaders. Local artisans paint the raw material a variety of gray, brown, and tan hues before the wood pieces are suspended in the brand’s Varia Ecoresin or glass.
Levels Kiln Cast Glass
The latest collection of 12 designs from Forms+Surfaces combines BermanGlass’s casting technologies with the lamination abilities of VividGlass. The line combines four colored, graphic, or image layers with three varieties of textured glass for a wide range of visual effects.
The Luminescence collection of glass rectangle mosaics from Marazzi adds depth in the kitchen and bath by creating the look of a beveled surface. The three-by-four-inch tiles are made of artisanal poured glass and available in eight pearlescent colors.
Available in a two-inch hexagon or random linear mosaic mesh-mounted tiles, the geometrically inspired Idyllic Blends collection brings together warm and cool tones. The decorative accent for walls and backsplashes can be specified in one of four nature-inspired color families.
Two of AGC’s popular back-painted glasses are now available in temperable varieties, making them suitable for indoor and outdoor use. Available in a range of ten colors, the satin Matelac T (shown) and the glossy Lacobel T are both Cradle to Cradle Bronze certified.
Transcend by Suzanne Tick
Textile designer Suzanne Tick turns her attention to glass with the new Transcend line for Skyline Design. Inspired by the textures and colors of concrete, worn metal, and marble, the line comes in six etched and printed patterns that can be combined by overlapping or fading the designs, and in transparent, translucent, and opaque options.
