Villa Lagoon Tile designers bring a global perspective to every new tile design, finding inspiration in the shapes, patterns, colors and textures of different parts of the world. Sometimes, that inspiration results in the merging of influences to create one-of-a-kind patterns in handcrafted cement tile. The Amalena tile series blends the bold energy of Cuban design with the intricate details of antique Turkish rugs, making it perfect as an accent wall by a soaking tub or an outdoor living room.
Lively floral and geometric forms that are the hallmark of Cuban tile design marry with delicate domes, arches, and minarets that epitomized the architecture and textiles of the Ottoman Empire. The result is a lush, tropical vibe with a twist.
Because the Amalena series takes inspiration from Turkish textiles, it is also an ideal choice for creating the classic rug-like effect with a border tile surrounding a field tile on the floor. This type of installation creates a sense of drama in both hospitality and residential projects.
A single row of border tiles will add a finishing touch to a cement tile floor, but if the room is large enough, a border made up of two, three or even more rows of tile can create an opulent and unforgettable impression.
The Amalena series is available in a choice of four colorways that combine our most vivid South Beach Colors. Or, make the look completely your own with our easy-to-use cement tile design tool that allows you to customize your color palette.
These dynamic tiles are made to last: no printed-on color here. Similar to natural stone, each cement tile is unique with slight color variations, the sign of an artisan-made product. Installing cement tiles is similar to installing natural stone, with tighter grout lines and use of a sealant after the tiles are set.
