Ceramique Internationale has enhanced its country house themed tile range with the launch of the elegant Ragley series.
Following the award-winning success of its Harewood collection, the company has collaborated with the same Spanish producer to introduce the affordable Metro shaped 100mm x 200mm Ragley.
Available in in six sophisticated colours, in on trend hues ranging from ‘Old’ white, subtle greys, and understated aqua to dramatic Bahia blue, the detailed glossy surface of Ragley tiles lend themselves perfectly to British bathrooms and kitchens.
Crackle glazes are enduringly popular in the UK but the nature of their production means they have tended to be limited to more artisanal – and higher priced – tile ranges.
A crackle finish is created by rapidly shrinking a glass glaze during manufacture, causing it to crack and creating an intricate surface pattern. However, the open structure of the cracked glaze means it requires post-installation sealing to protect it from staining and moisture ingress.
Director of Ceramique Internationale Peter Vann says: ‘Everyone just loves crackle glaze tiles. They are the epitome of great design – but that usually comes at a higher cost.
‘Our producer employs advanced technology to randomly print a 100% realistic crackle onto durable ceramic, removing the need to seal before grouting.
‘This makes these stylish tiles available to anybody who aspires to lift a space beyond the ordinary without breaking the bank.’
