It’s always exciting to see what the latest trends in interior design and latest products that manufacturers have in store for the upcoming year. This September 22-26th Cersaie Ceramic Tile and Bathroom Furnishings show in Bologna, Italy will showcase some of the top tile and bathroom furnishings in the industry.
Excited for #Cersaie Tile Show – Bologna Italy – Sep 22-26
#Cersaie Tile Show is Ready for the World
“Organized by Edi.Cer SpA and promoted by Confindustria Ceramica in collaboration with Bologna Fiere, the show attracts nearly 1,000 exhibitors from 30+ countries and over 75,000 visitors each year.”
I’m extremely excited as I am just off the heels of the Tile of Spain’s tile trip in Valencia, Spain when we attended Cevisama. To be able to witness the Italian tile show will be an awesome experience.

A Peek at a Few of the Italian Tile Manufacturer’s Showing at Cersaie:
*REFIN – Ceramiche:
Ceramiche Refin has developed a completely new visual language for ceramics, and the 2014 edition of Cersaie will take visitors on a journey inspired by material and re-invented by ceramic technology, peppered with a spirit of renewal and a desire to amaze.
Teatro, meanwhile, takes its inspiration from the values linked with memories, awareness of our cultural heritage and local roots, in a particularly alluring collection inspired by the floor inside the Municipal Theatre in Modena. Actors, audiences and theatre workers thus form part of the very soul of a collection, which, by reproducing the wood found on the stage – with everything that implies for the artist – and in the foyer, captures and recalls the magic of endless evenings, creating an evocative sense of history and prestige.
*SUPERGRES – Ceramiche
Ceramiche Supergres produce floor and wall coverings for residential building in the medium-high market segment, further divided into sub-segments for porcelain stoneware floors for outdoor and indoor use and white-body wall tiles for bathrooms and kitchens.
Lakestone – Ivory
Great graphic versatility and natural harmony, like a natural stone
A collection featuring unique pieces, created for those who are looking for a floor characterized by great chromatic versatility but that is also as natural and harmonious as stone. It is Lake Stone by Ceramiche Supergres, a ceramic product inspired by natural stones extracted for more than 400 years in the British Lake District and manufactured by expert craftsmen to create prestigious indoor and outdoor projects.
Every single slab that has been chosen and reproduced is different and unique in order to create the natural effect of age-old materials: a random yet balanced and harmonious versatility. Different and varied veining on the surface, different shades in a perfect balance with a strong personality.
*CESAR – Ceramiche
The life of every single one of us is made up of unique moments, all able to tell a story, to evoke a tactile sensations, to remind us of a colour, a shape, an emotion. With One, the sense evoked by traditional cotto and the contemporary mood of cement in architecture find the perfect merger to create a unique style, a unique harmony. Thanks to its versatility, One is the perfect solution to dress any space with a touch of exclusive class, a personalised ceramic style and an original appeal.
There will be nearly 1,000 exhibitors at Cersaie so stay close to Stagetecture in the upcoming weeks to see more highlights before, during and after the show.
