The European Tile Trend Continues at Rubble Tile
Italian tile manufacturer, Ragno, has driven growth and design in the Italian ceramic tile industry since 1949. Here we’ll spotlight three of Ragno’s lines that are available at Rubble Tile.
Ragno’s Woodcaft is a creative look for spaces with a contemporary spirit. A representation of vintage wood with highly varied shades and grain lines, it projects depth and character through a worn, varnished surface look.
The newer 4″x 28″ offers a sophisticated, modern style. Chromatic contrasts and graphic patterns boasting an original design customize intimate spaces with flair and style. A versatile product, for public and private locations, Woodcraft allows for creative interpretations with traditional references. Stop by Rubble Tile or contact us anytime for more information.
Bistrot is an authentic rendition of classic yet timeless marbles, with sizes and colors ideal for any design. The realistic marble color intricacies and sinuous veining are artfully reproduced via leading edge 3-D digital imaging on rectified Colorbody™ porcelain stoneware in large plank, square and mosaic arrays.
Bistrot’s palette ranges from warm to cool with shades of white, cream, taupe and gray. The line’s palette options closely resemble their namesake stones – Pietrasanta, Calacatta, Michelangelo, Marfil, Crux. In addition, Bistrot’s classic marble porcelain tile comes in two different finishes, satin and glossy, encouraging imaginative design from elegant to edgy.
With its timeworn visual and eclectic mix of large format and hexagon sizes, REWIND takes the look of ancient cotto into the modern era. Quietly vibrant and functional, this sophisticated ColorBody™ porcelain brings new interest to an ageless aesthetic with its clean shapes and warm colors. Shades of brown, gray and cream stand alone or coordinate artfully as parts of an individualized puzzle for a truly unique design.
Rewind Brick – A new porcelain brick shape has been added to the line, opening up commercial and residential design possibilities.
Rewind Wall – now available in large format matte glazed ceramic wall tile from Spain.
Founded in 1949 in Sassuolo, Italy, the Ragno brand is one of the protagonists of the growth and success of the Italian ceramic tile industry all over the world.
