Natural materials are the latest trends to be transformed by tiling technology with the creation of ceramic and porcelain tiles that perfectly mimic exposed bricks, woodgrain and stone.

The new organic themed ranges by Johnson Tiles, the UK’s leading manufacturer and importer of ceramic and porcelain tiles, use the very latest in manufacturing and design technology to replicate every tiny detail found in these earthy materials – from irregularities in shade and tone to texture and size.

Darren Clanford, Creative Director of Johnson Tiles, says: “Good replications of brick work or natural effects in a tile has already been achieved, but these new collections take it to an entirely new level.

“The detailing is so perfect that there really is no need to use natural materials on walls and floors now. It’s the ideal solution, you get a surface that can easily be cleaned and maintained, but that has all the beauty you’d expect from bricks, wood and stone, without depleting these natural resources.”


Johnson Tiles has added a total of eight brand new ranges across its portfolio, across the three collections, Absolute, Select and Intro, so design professionals and specifiers can quickly identify the best tile for their project’s requirements and budget.
