Nature taken from

Tiles from Villeroy & Boch with authentic wood look

An increasingly popular trend in tiles borrowed from nature combines an authentic wood look with all the advantages of ceramics. Grain, colour, small knots or various used looks are reproduced with deceptive accuracy or developed in an innovative and hitherto unseen design. The advantages are clear. Ceramic tiles from Villeroy & Boch such as the vilbostone porcelain stoneware ranges TUXEDO, NATURE SIDE and LODGE and the nonvitreous range LODGE WALL are easy to clean and waterproof.

 

Villeroy & Boch vilbostone porcelain stoneware tiles are fired at very high temperatures and cannot be dented by furniture or high heels. They are lightfast and, unlike the natural models on which they are based, do not fade or change colour over time.

They are frost-resistant even in very cold temperatures and thus also suitable for outdoors. For even greater convenience, they are impregnated at the manufacturing stage with the vilbostoneplus surface seal to prevent stains.

The tiles are also impervious to normal household chemicals. Dust mites cannot survive on the tile surface and are simply removed with normal cleaning. In this way wood-look tiles are also healthy. Finally, ceramic tiles provide an ideal basis for underfloor heating and thus help save energy.

Villeroy & Boch offers diverse wood-look ranges for living rooms, bathrooms, kitchens and terraces.

TUXEDO: a modern yearning for authenticity

The TUXEDO vilbostone porcelain stoneware range has the look of hard wood with few knots and a lively but restrained coloration.

The typical 20 x 120 cm and 30 x 120 cm parquet formats are available in six harmonious and combinable colours. The décor is in the form of the parquet cassette design that can be included in the laying plan or used as a stand-alone highlight.

The 5 x 5 cm mosaic tiles are an additional décor option, which also ensure the nonslip properties required in step-in showers.

One concept, different style options: NATURE SIDE

The NATURE SIDE range also meets the highest demands for a durable wood-look floor with all the advantages of vilbostone porcelain stoneware. The matt surfaces are sealed with vilbostoneplus for ease of cleaning.

The different colours can be used to create a Nordic look or modern country house style in white, beige and whitewashed beige limed, or restrained modern designs in grey and grey-brown or warm red-brown. The tiles come in the typical 22.5 x 90 and 11.25 x 90 cm parquet formats, a hardwearing herringbone design (on 17.5 x 39 cm sheets) and mosaic strip tiles (on 30 x 30 cm sheets). The mosaics are nonslip class R9/barefoot A and thus ideal for walk-in showers.

LODGE: versatile and combinable indoor and outdoor range

Among the features of the LODGE vilbostone porcelain stoneware range are the unusual historically inspired décor tiles with Villeroy & Boch branding. The innovative decoration is part of a versatile range with six colours and six formats. The colours and graining, including knots, are highly realistic and natural-looking.

The LODGE WALL concept for walls with a light-coloured restrained and structured wood finish produces a highly elegant effect on large surfaces.

The wall tiles are effectively accentuated through the laying of multi-coloured mosaics or rod mosaic borders in a brickwork look. These individually designed accents provide a further harmonious link with the wood-look floor tiles.
