Florida Tile Announces New Product Launch: Formations

LAKELAND, FL--(Marketwire - August 12, 2009) - Florida Tile would like to announce its newest series, Formations, a modern interpretation of a stone look, created in a stylized version of Slate. The finish is subtly flecked and shimmers in the light, playing with the texture and colors on the face of the tile; it creates a dramatic effect. Comprised of Through-Body Porcelain, the surface has a medium texture that lends itself nicely to the bold color palette.

Available in 5 modern colors, each is inspired by a rock color found in our natural surroundings. By taking these organic colors and including them in an interior setting, Formations creates a deep and rich style that can be made modern or traditional. Formations draws its name from geological rock formations that are defined by the intricate layers of sedimentary built up over time. Like these rocks, our Formations series is created through an intricate process, but in the end proves to be strong, durable and will last the test of time.

Carrying the natural theme to decorative accents are the Lava Listel 2"x12", and the Geyser Listel 1.25"x12" and a 6"x6" Insert, both available in 2 versions; a Hot to coordinate with the warm tones and a Cold to coordinate with the cool tones. Also included are a standard 12"x12" mosaic and a 12"x12" brick pattern mosaic made up of 2"x4" chips. Rounding out the series is a full line of Bullnose and Bullnose Corners as well as a 6"x12" Cove base and 6"x1" Cove Outside Corner.

Formations is GREENGUARD and GREENGUARD for Children and Schools certified, and ADA compliant. Formations is also a certified porcelain by the Porcelain Tile Certification Agency. This full package of trim, decos and technical standards makes Formations ideal for commercial or residential applications.
