Part of its Enmallados collection, the Gresan porcelain stoneware mosaic tile from Spain-based company Exagres offers both monochromatic and high-contrast or tonal color combinations in a classic design. The square pattern is a safe choice when you need color and a bit more visual interest, but you do not want to commit to complicated patterns or take away from other visual focal points.
The mash backing makes these tiles ideal for used on curved walls, while their virtually nonexistent porosity ensures safe use in both indoor and outdoor areas that are prone to humidity.

If you are a student of geometric beauty and interested in intriguing patterns, the Micro Multiplem mosaic tiles from Mosaicomicro may be just the product for you. Their motive was created by breaking down squares into primary shapes, which gives its pattern more depth while retaining a highly pleasing and organized pattern.
The material is quite unique in both its manufacturing and appearance. The company uses glass from discarded CRT monitors that is ground, pigmented and mixed with water. Added clay gives it a slightly raw look. Both the pattern and the texture derived from this unconventional material make the tiles appealing to the touch. Engraved by hand, they offer an authentic, inimitable look.
