Modern Design Meets Old-World Charm & Durability at Rubble Tile

One of the most versatile stones to ever be unearthed, slate has been an essential building material for centuries. Featuring a range of nature’s colors and low water absorption, civilizations worldwide embraced slate not only as an incredibly durable roofing and flooring material, but also as a versatile component of everything from chalkboards to pool tables.

Today, the look of slate has been reimagined by the award-winning design team at Mediterranea, in a porcelain tile series that upholds slate’s tradition of durability and resilience. Modern Slate series is designed as a new twist on a classic stone; just what designers need to put the finishing touch on both interior and exterior surfaces.

Modern Slate is available in both 12” x 24” and the extra-large 24” x 48” size – a format ideal for maximizing design potential, while minimizing grout joints.

As a rectified tile, Modern Slate can be installed with joints assmall as 1/8” throughout the project.

Five designer colors are available with the series: Ivory, Charcoal, Grey, Taupe and Noce (Chocolate).

This brilliant range gives designers a range of options when contemplating color layouts and possibilities.

For maximum versatility, Modern Slate is also available in two finishes. The matte finish is ideal for interior installations, while a special Anti-Slip finish is available in the 12” x 24” format, making it perfect for exterior floors, and areas subject to water exposure.

Modern Slate offers 2×2 inch mosaics in each color as well, expanding the application possibilities to include bathroom and shower floors, and other wet areas where anti-slip needs require more grout lines.

Matching bullnose and mosaic trim round out the collection.

This combination of finishes makes Modern Slate a superb choice when seeking a unified look for all areas of the home or commercial project.
