[Atlanta] At Coverings 2024 held here, tile and stone showcased soft biophilic colors that not only mimicked nature, but enhanced it, while concrete looks outstripped previously popular marble looks. Furthermore, natural blues, green, and sands and warm terracotta neutrals and earthborn tones dominated the color palette, enriched by a variety of textures.

Lea Ceramiche’s won Best Display Booth award at Coverings for its ingenious display of its Side Stone collection (right), capturing a cement look in Light, Mid and Dark in both a more textured Cluster and a more subtle Hidden.

Marazzi’s Zellige Neo collection captures the colors of the moment, evolving the biophilic trend to its next level of warm colorful soothing blues, greens, beiges and warm whites and charcoals that capture the essence of the natural world.

Further leaning into low-maintenance options perfect for capturing now-popular terracotta looks, MSI has introduced two new looks with color variations in Rustique Red and Rustique White, offering more weathered, aged looks that blend seamlessly into natural surroundings.

At Crossville, Lindsay Waldrep shared the porcelain Argent 2.0 collection, seen here in colors Sunkissed Rose, Marble Faun and Golden Glow, enabling the consumers’ desire to not only expand into outdoor spaces, but to make that space their own through colorful accents.

At StonePeak, a variety of blues from the Camp collection (left) and the Solumbria collection’s stone looks emphasize the power of natural elements with texture.

The Kie ceramic collection from Cifre Cerámica captures the more recently popular trend of wood looks, with the added twist of horizontal slatted lines that add dimension and depth to walls.

The impasto collection from Portobello America collection shapes the colors of the moment into oil paint swatches, direct from an artist’s brush, to allow consumers the freedom to incorporate their personal style.
