[Bologna, Italy] Cersaie, the International Exhibition of Ceramic Tile and Bathroom Furnishings, took place from September 26-30, 2022 here at the Bologna Exhibition Centre. Tile suppliers from around the world gathered to share their newest products for everything from floors and walls to exteriors. Design trends ranged from bold colors to rich textures, with exuberant patterns being a common theme. Here is a look at just some of what was seen on the show floor.


Tile of Spain member Gayafores highlighted elegant neutral tones throughout its collections. Inspired by nature and paying tribute to designs of Ancient Greece, Palatino celebrates the beauty of travertine marble. Altea is a collection of hydraulic tiles in a retro aesthetic and includes an eye-catching modular graphic motif. Decorative collection Habana brings whimsical patterns of greenery to walls with hand-painted artisan terracotta pieces that feel like an island destination. The Berna collection of limestone feels relaxing and calming and includes classic and timeless visuals.





Ceramics of Italy

Members of Ceramics of Italy covered the Cersaie arena with eclectic designs. Many created functional vignettes to illustrate how these products would make a statement in residential and commercial areas. Some products touted classic aesthetics with hardwood and stone visuals bringing a serene feeling of nature to the space. Others took a maximalist approach by covering full walls with art deco patterns and lots of visuals with intricate details.
