New Natural Tile Collections from Indonesia Feature Trending Shapes

Rubble Tile is thrilled to introduce our newest vendor, Zen Paradise. They are passionate about ensuring their products are natural, high quality, and ethically sourced from Indonesia and Southeast Asia.

On the many islands where Zen Paradise’s materials are found, nature produces renewable and abundant stone colors ranging from midnight blacks to bleach whites, turquoise greens to twilight blues, to coral pinks, tans, yellows, and storm cloud greys.

The desire to capture this beautiful serenity for others to enjoy is the inspiration for Zen Paradise stone and pebble tile.

 

The Wave Collection at Rubble Tile

Wave tiles are an innovative new concept that is now available through the Rubble Tile showroom. Zen Paradise has taken their well-known pebbles and sliced them into perfectly flat stones. The end result is a pebble tile that has a completely flat surface.

The flat pebbles are a natural product manipulated by modern design and tools. Zen Paradise wave tiles are a beautiful combination of nature and modern, industrial design.

The brand new Carrara color comes in Wave, Mini Wave & XL Wave

 

The Wave shape comes in three distinct series:  Wave, Mini Wave, and XL Wave. All have their own color options, and use Indonesian pebbles that are one of nature’s renewable resources. So keep in mind when you select any Wave size, you’re choosing a sustainable tile.

 

Wave, Mini Wave, and XL Wave all come in 12 x 12 inch sheets, with the flat pebbles arranged into an interlocking pattern. The 1/4″ – 3/8″ thickness is fairly standard, and will work in conjunction with other materials if necessary.

Wave

Wave tiles can be used to accentuate a kitchen or bathroom backsplash, bathroom floor, shower wall, or shower pan.

 

Some of the colors in Wave

 

The Wave Series has the most colors of the three flat pebble sizes, boasting fifteen options with island-inspired names like Coastal Mist and Pacific Blue. All the colors use natural variation and complementary tones to great effect. Some of the colors are gorgeous blends of different pebble shades, while others are more uniform in tone.

 

Mini Wave

Like Wave, Min Wave is great for backsplashes, showers and bathroom floors. The smaller size offers even more of a calming mosaic feel. The nine colors include calming neutrals as well as bold blues and aquas.

XL Wave

After years of designers and architects asking for a pebble tile to use in larger areas, Zen Paradise has created XL Wave Tiles from the largest, most naturally beautiful pebbles in the world.

Seaglass – XL Wave

 

The end result of using larger sized pebbles is a tile that is beautifully unique, natural, and designed specifically for larger areas.

The XL Wave tile has an overall feeling of less texture and less busyness. It is ideal for larger spaces. You can also make out the individual stones, since they are 2.5″ x 3” in diameter. The XL uses the same grade of stone as the ever-popular mini and regular wave tile.

Island Blend – XL Wave

 

XL Wave Tiles can be used in areas as small as a bathroom floor, shower surround or shower pan, but these tiles are designed to be used in larger spaces such as feature walls, water features, large walkways outdoor spaces. These tiles have also been designed for commercial projects such as restaurants and hotels.

 

Hexagon, Mini Hexagon & XL Hexagon

Zen Paradise’s new hexagon tiles use natural stones from throughout Indonesia to create eye catching blends. Individual hexagons are made of onyx, basalt, and marble. These individual hexagon jewels are cut, tumbled and woven into a blanket of beautiful mosaic color.
