The tactile quality and shimmering surfaces of the Gleeze collection of tiles from Ragno are perfect for those who desire calm, beach house vibes. Gleeze celebrates the imperfection of the handcrafted with slabs that carry unique characteristics, and this lends a lovely rusticity to any space.
There are five colours that allude to the natural elements of sand, sea and rock, and they come in rectangular shapes and sizes that make them current and contemporary. Further elevating the collection are distinctive concave and convex surface options that promise a truly standout interior.
Silestone® by Cosentino is a hardwearing and incredibly versatile surface, and can be used in a variety of ways at home. The latest Silestone® Sunlit Days collection (above and below) not only adds a bit of sunshine into interiors with lovely colours inspired by the Mediterranean (Faro White, Cincel Grey, Arcilla Red, Cala Blue and Posidonia Green), but demonstrates Cosentino’s commitment to sustainability.
Sunlit Days is the first carbon neutral collection in the quartz surfaces and engineered stone industry. To reach this milestone, Cosentino commits to offsetting the CO² emissions of the entire life cycle of the Silestone® Sunlit Days series, and will rely on different voluntary and certified offsetting projects to do so.
Silestone® Sunlit Days is available at Cosentino
Around the world, one million plastic drinking bottles are purchased every minute, and much of it ends up in landfills or the sea, where it takes approximately 450 years to biodegrade.
Which is why the Wave fabric series by Kirkby Design should be applauded. Part of the brand’s Sustainable Collection, Wave fabrics are made from 100 per cent PET recycled polyester yarns produced from waste plastic bottles. Featuring a subtle woven moiré effect and a soft finish that belies its plastic origins, this textural plain is accentuated by a contemporary, tonal palette.
Approximately one hundred 0.5 litre waste plastic bottles are used to produce 1 metre of Wave. In addition, for every metre of fabric sold, a percentage of proceeds will be donated to the Marine Conservation Society to help protect our seas, shores and wildlife.
