What Do Organic Produce and Home Design Have in Common?

If you thought the organic food craze couldn’t get any bigger, you were wrong. Naturals are permeating into every corner of life from fabrics to cleaning supplies, and now to design.

Naturals have increasingly become a part of design and architecture and the trend is building. The look of wood, stone, metal, and glass create a sense of the natural that is becoming the standard in design.

The organic aesthetic features a color palette and finishes that are neutral enough that it recommends itself to designs in many styles and doesn’t date itself. But it also speaks to the trends of right now—gray and white, metallic, and polished finishes. High variability in mosaics and stone-inspired patterns brings movement and interest to any space.

Another great thing about organic design is that not only does it look natural, but it is sustainable as well—which is another selling point of these types of materials. Your clients can get the sophisticated, elegant look they want and still stay true to their organic roots.

Daltile is ready to help you meet the demand for organic looking design. We already offer naturally-inspired products like Porada, Exquisite, Jewel Tide, and Acacia Valley. Now you have two new options:

Crystal Shores in Hazel Harbor Random Linear Mosaic

Glass Mosaic: Crystal Shores™

This glass mosaic blends crushed glass, metallic, and ocean-inspired colors for a design that lets you add dimension to walls and backsplashes. It is flashy enough to be the center of attention, or to take a backseat in a well-appointed design. It is simultaneously organic and upscale for a material that’s unique among natural-look materials.

  • Two sizes available in 2 x 1 inch brickjoint or random linear
  • Mesh mounted sheets that can be cut to accommodate customization
  • Ocean-inspired colors: Aurelian Seas, Diamond Delta, Emerald Isle, Sapphire Lagoon, Hazel Harbor

River Marble™: ColorBody™ Stone-Look Porcelain

Marble has long been a favorite for high-end designs. Nothing matches the dramatic natural look of marble. This low-maintenance, affordable alternative features Reveal Imaging™ that accurately translates marble visuals to our porcelain tile. The movement is excellent and lends flow to a space that harmonizes an organic aesthetic.

  • Available in five colors: Smoky River, River Rapids, Muddy Banks, Sandy Flats, Silver Springs
  • Appropriate for floor and wall applications
  • Rectangular sizes in 8 x 36 and 12 x 36 planks, as well as 6 x 24 and 12 x 24
  • Comes in polished or matte finish
