The Shades 2.0 tile collection from Crossville Inc. carries the cachet of the original Shades even further with 13 elemental hues, patterned accent tile and a range of size formats. A subtle linear graphic present across the collection also gives nod to the biophilic design trend.
Similar to the original Shades collection, the colors in Shades 2.0 can stand alone to create monochromatic looks or mix-and-mingle for interplayed designs. Frost, vapor, ink, midnight, mist, ash, thunder, fog, clay, haze, foam, camel and russet all offer a direct interplay of light, dark, monochromatic and colorful hues.
The surface visual’s striations can also be played around with by designers for clean, continuous looks or more varied, textural appearances. A multi-directional graphic in a new patterned accent tile is also available for added visual interest within a configuration, or to be installed singularly for maximum impact.
The collection offers tile sizes ranging from 24-by-48, 24-by-24, 12-by-24 and 6-by-24-inches, all the way down to 2-by-2 for unpolished and 1-by-3 for semi-polished. Additionally, there is a 12-by-12-in. right triangle for creating a bold aesthetic. Finishing options include a 4-by-24-in. bullnose or 6-by-12-in. cove base.
