Known since 1748 for its fine traditions in tableware, Villeroy & Boch has stepped boldly into the future with a new line of ceramic and stone tiles, perfect for any room in the house. Touted as a ‘deliberate collage,’ the new collection offers widely varied designs for individual room concepts, and captures the zeitgeist of a century born into space age eclecticism. Gone is the grand and glittering opulence of the avant-garde of interiors past; aesthetics suited for the age of light and space are ‘democratised’ to satisfy those savvy enough to recognize an ingenious reinvention of the ordinary.
Moonlight Glow, a trendy décor tile available in bright red or anthracite, offers a smooth, glisteny finish inspired by airbrush techniques. Evocative of the bright-bold, nothing-but-groovy colours of the 1980s, the nonvitreous, modishly retro tile is a contemporary interpretation of the shimmering sequins and glossy varnishes that emerged en vogue from the post-modern culture. Owners may craft full-surface walls, using one colour alone or in combination with classic white. Moonlight Glow in all red invigorates a room, while a wall of glossy anthracite creates a minimalist effect.
