Porcelanosa: modern tile with a European flair

I find something particularly fascinating about tiles that have a tactile quality to them (if I was being snotty, I’d call them bas-relief, which is the arty name for anything that is slightly three-dimensional), so I have had my eyes on Porcelanosa for quite some time.

This one is their “London” line: they are large format porcelain tiles that fit snuggly together to form a wonderful repeating pattern. They look glossy in the image but in reality they are actually fairly matte, and the three-dimensional quality of them is reinforced by the fact that the curves are flattened on the top, giving them an almost Asian modern feel. They make you want to run your hands along the wall as you walk past!
