WALL CERAMICS WITH A TWIST

The Senio City collection is a chevron wall ceramic that can be installed for kitchen backsplashes or dining room accent walls. A big trend right now is a ‘fade-out’ effect where tiles fade from one colour to another or in the case of the Senio City, fading from a high polished to silky-matte finish. The chevron pattern is a reinvented classic that looks great in both traditional to contemporary spaces.

Senio City 3×10 chevron, 5 colours, matte or polished
