Wood was, is, and will be trendy for a long time to come. It’s a timeless material that everybody loves! We all have wood at home, on the floor, as furniture, some people even have it on their walls! Wood is a natural and warm material that offers a feeling of calm and comfort. That’s why so many of us love cottages! It’s also why tiles that imitate wood are so popular! Scrapwood (discontinued product), Worn Wood (discontinued product), or recently Shangai (discontinued product), our ceramic tiles series that imitate wood are among our best sellers!
Marble is also a timeless material. Appreciated by bourgeois families for a very long time, in modern times marble is more and more present in modest homes thanks to excellent and beautiful porcelain imitations. That’s not all!

Metal can be smooth and bright, brushed, satin etc… Our series Metal Strip (discontinued product) is composed of glass mosaics and brushed metal mosaics. It is perfect for industrial-looking kitchens backsplashes.
