Cromie- Color Systems!

Munsell, Pantone, Natural Color Systems, Oh My!

As design aficianados we are familiar with the use of color systems, and Horizon now offers a tile series that was created with theNatural Color System in mind!Cromie
is a tile collection of Warm, Neutral and Cold colors using the NCS System
which is a “logical colour notation system which builds on how the human being sees colour. While other colour systems are based on arbitrary numeric series, NCS classification describes colours exactly as we see them and it is capable of giving an accurate notation to any of the 10 million colours we can perceive.”

NCS_Colour_Circle NCS_Colour_Triangle_Y10R

Using Color and Nuance, the NCS System is based on the six colors the human eye identifies as elementary: White (W) Black (S), Yellow (Y), Red (R), Blue (B) and Green (G)

COMPRESSED beside arancione

Using this system, Cromie offers colors with a chromatic relationship to the NCS System.

You Look MARBLE-ous!

So, we have hinted around at the new larger formats that our factories are moving towards, but KERLITE has always been the largest! KERLITE is THE original thin tile and has been available thru Horizon for several years now.  Every year, KERLITE has increased its line by adding colors and new looks and Cersaie 2012 was no exception.

Reuse Tile!

Horizon has had the privilege of attending Cersaie, the annual world tile and bath show once a year for as long as we can remember.  Over the years, there have been times when there is one factory, one new introduction that stands out above the rest. As we approached this booth at the show, the only word that came to mind: “WOW!”

Cersaie

Cersaie  in Bologna, Italy.  As usual, we were not disappointed with what we saw!  In typical tradeshow fashion, entering thru the doors of these huge buildings you will see every factory has set up their own showroom with plenty of display space, decorative accents, and seating. Some even include their own bars serving up espresso! (Always appreciated by this group!)

Architects + Artisans for the great article and post!

For perspective, here is a quick picture snapped as we walked between buildings next to a map of the fair:

See the tiny people? We definitely get our exercise as we walk the show, and it is always worth it.

New materials headed their way to our warehouse!

Stay tuned for a full Cersaie recap!

(Hint: more LARGE formats are on the Horizon!)

HIT Kerlite on DIY!

Many months ago, we were contacted to participate in an episode of  DIY Network’s I Hate My Bath.
They specifically requested our KERLITE thin tile, and after learning the details of the project, we were thrilled to participate!
Unfortunately, we don’t have any “Before” images, but think 1940’s era pink tiled bath and you will get the picture!
In addition to KERLITE, there were finishes like copper, onyx, and wood used to complete the look.
Check out the “After” images below!
Because KERLITE is so thin and lightweight, they took it up onto the ceiling, using a combination of colors and sizes creating a dramatic look.

We LOVE the creativity used in this space and are so excited to have participated.

Scene on the Southside!

P8237454

 

Dallas’ Southside district has a new hot spot- NYLO Hotel Southside is open for business! Opening just last week, the staff was excited to share its unique and modern boutique style hotel with the Southside community. City dwellers were invited to visit the roof top pool and bar for a late night happy hour. Soda Bar is a great place to enjoy a refreshment, grab a snack, and take on the Dallas skyline!

5G Studio Collaborative was the lead designer responsible for this magnificent atmosphere. Known for their previous Dallas based projects like the Omni Hotel and Dallas Chop House, 5G is no amateur when it comes to creating beautiful and functional spaces in this city! Horizon Tile is proud to be a part of this project. From the pool deck to the restrooms, we hope that you will enjoy the view! Click HERE to read the Dallas Morning News article.

IIDA CRE8

A few weeks back Horizon participated in IIDA’s CRE8 Design Challenge and Fashion Show benefitting CASA.

We were paired up with designers from Rogers Ford and AM Design Associates who selected The Little Mermaid for the Fairytale themed event.  There is no doubt this event is full of creative designs, but we were SO impressed with the design these ladies came up with using our mosaics along with wallcovering from Koroseal.

Congratulations to all involved in this fun event! And especially to the Little Mermaid Team for winning “Best Performance”
