A new floor concept in trendy layered stone –
NATURAL BLEND: graceful, transparent stone effects in porcelain stoneware
With the new NATURAL BLEND floor range, Villeroy & Boch takes the layered stone theme and translates it into a high-quality, contrast-rich tile design. The natural stone effect features a mineral texture, formed in individual layers over time, that manifests as stripes when broken down or cut. In NATURAL BLEND, this varied mineral composition has been interpreted with quiet areas and translucent gradients. The delicate colouring and subtle veining of the graceful stone effect is shown off to particular advantage in the rectangular format, highlighting the natural character of the ceramic.
NATURAL BLEND is a modern floor concept composed of unglazed vilbostone porcelain stoneware and available in three natural colours and four formats. The colours include a warm creme-beige, sunny cliff, a cooler multi-coloured variety, stone grey, and an anthracite, burned rock. All colours are available in the formats 30 x 60 cm, 60 x 60 cm, 30 x 120 cm and 60 x 120 cm. The stone effect is particularly compelling in the large 30 x 120 cm format, especially when laid horizontally. The surface is matt and smooth and offers R9 slip resistance. Harmonious accents can be added to the surface using 1.5 x 60 cm strip mosaic mats (available in all colours) that have been cut from the basic tiles and bonded to 30 x 60 cm mesh. Other decorative options include 5 x 5 cm mosaics on 30 x 30 cm mesh that are perfect for walk-in showers. The NATURAL BLEND range is completed by 7.5 x 60 cm strip skirting.
With NATURAL BLEND, sophisticated designs can be created in natural, modern and classic rooms. With its authentic yet modern character, NATURAL BLEND appeals to those who prefer natural furnishings and like to experiment with understated surfaces and extravagant eye-catching elements.
This robust, hard-wearing, vilbostoneplus-treated porcelain stoneware also makes an interesting choice for premium residential construction projects or office and administrative buildings.
