Introducing the latest Laura Ashley collection from House of British Ceramic Tile
Following on from the success of the first two Laura Ashley collections, British Ceramic Tile has worked closely with the company to translate Laura Ashley prints into a sophisticated range of floor and wall tiles to offer even more design appeal to consumers.
Featuring The Heritage Collection and The White Collection, as well as further colours being added to Artisan to offer retailers and consumers the most quintessentially British collection to date, the new additions are likely to prove very popular...
The Heritage Collection combines two of Laura Ashley's archive inspired prints - Mr Jones and Wicker, offering a contemporary grey colour palette of charcoal and dove grey. Highly versatile, each 331 x 331mm tile can be used on both walls and floors to create feature walls or standout flooring, and also has the added benefit of being made from ceramic, making it the perfect choice for any room in the home.
Designed to celebrate the popular trend for classic white interiors, The White Collection includes three families, each featuring a premium range of white decorative wall tiles and coordinating floor tiles. Subtle, printed structures and lustre finishes result in a collection of beautifully understated, incredibly versatile tiles.
The Cottonwood Feature and Isodore 248 x 498mm tiles have minimalist floral Laura Ashley prints and are complemented with an elegant and timeless 331 x 331mm white satin floor tile.
Marise and Finsbury both feature modern geometric lustre prints in a 248 x 498mm format. Adding refined texture and interest to both walls and floors, the range comes with a coordinating 331 x 331mm Marise floor tile that works beautifully with Marise wall tile, while the Finsbury can be coordinated with a 331 x 331mm white satin floor tile.
Available in a 248 x 498mm size, Highgate has a distinctive brick effect, while Cottonwood Linear offers an unassuming, yet stunning linear design. The Cottonwood Linear can be paired with the Cottonwood Linear 331 x 331mm floor tile for a continuous, clean look in the home, white Highgate works well with a plain white satin floor tile in 331 x 331mm size.
To complement The White Collection, there is a coordinating plain white wall tile that is available in either gloss or satin in a 248x498mm size.
Seaspray and Charcoal are the latest additions to the Artisan range. Proving popular with retailers and consumers, Artisan's traditional, handmade feel is full of character. Available in two sizes of 150 x 75mm and 300 x 75mm, the collection already has nine distinctive colours of Creamware, Amethyst, Duck Egg, Willow, French Grey, White, Pale Biscuit, Eau de Nil and Cobblestone.
Jayne Adamson, marketing manager at British Ceramic Tile, comments: "The previous Laura Ashley collection continues to be one of our best selling and most sought after by both retailers and consumers so it seemed sensible to enhance our offering by bringing out newer ranges.
"Our latest additions bring current trends to life, including a new contemporary colour palette as well as textured surfaces and patterned flooring. Each collection is made from ceramic and offers a great range of benefits including being easy to install, waterproof and works extremely well with underfloor heating".
