Vives will showcase its new Kokomo floor tiles in porcelain. The matt gold tiles, with contrasting neutral background, include the colours Gris, Crema and Grafito, as well as Blanco.


Spanish tile company Gayafores adds the Velvet tile to its collection. The marble-effect designs are available in neutral tones – from white and grey to black – and a matt finish. Versatile and easy to combine with a range of tile styles, the tiles create an impactful floor design.
