Morocco is know for its vibrant, colourful market places with an array of colours in glass and hand painted ceramics. The colourful spices of Saffron and Mustard to the Blues of the Sky and the Yellows of the surrounding desert. These are the images we have of Morocco.
Now when you marry this colour and design with the technology we have available in the 21st century, you have beauty and functionality.
There are a number of manuafctures that are capturing the beauty of our modern ideas of Morroco.
REFIN Ceramics has been around for decades and with the Italian ideology of creating trend rather than following them.
Refin is a part of the Atlas Concorde Group and have been producing beautiful tiles sincer 1962. They have moved with the times and consider themselves leaders in the concepts associated with the protection of our environment for all future generations.
They have created a world of colour and geomentry in their Frame Collection.
Their ranges start with MAJOLICA, which gives you the randomness of 6 different designs. These designs are bold and come in colours of terracotta, charcoal and greys. You can use the theme is a running pattern or in completely randomly, it will just come down to how brave you feel.
Their CARPET range offers beauty of design in the geometry. The colours of this range are all neutural beiges, greys and the triking earth tones of Browns. The defined lines of digital design bring to the eye the magic effects of the kaleidoscope. Again the patterns used can be random or in a more tesselated defined pattern, giving a new life to the Federation designs of yesteryear.
WEAVE is an optical illusion that will add interest to any application whether its a feature wall in a bathroom or or a whole living room floor. Weave graphically sets the vibration of the textile pattgern in a beautifully designed cermic. Again available in a random pattern and also in a more modular look.
The final luck is pur geometry and is actually called GEOMETRIC. Found in neutral colours of creams and defining shades of Grey and lines of charcoal defining all the angles of the best geometric design. This design bridges the gap between Mediterranean decorative traditions and the didgital age. This design is available in only a random design and again on a large scale will define your living areas and distinct and new age.
The Moroccan theme is not limited to the larger formats but also to mosaics in Gloss and Matt finishes and in basic colours but with the shapes you would picture in the marketplaces of Morocco. There are glass and Glazed Porcelain Mosaics in both Gloss and Matt surfaces, called Modern Moroccan in Glass and Arabesque in the Glazed Porcelain and are the latest in features. The Glazed Porcelain can be used both on the wall and floor. Accompany that with smaller format matt 20x20cm design tiles from the Sevilla Series, handmade beauty from Spain. Add to that the handmade subway sized tiles fron the Kent and Devon ranges and the image will be formed in front of your eyes.
