A modern furnishing trend that allows you to blend different styles, materials, furnishing elements, shapes, geometric patterns, colours and nuances, for a functional, comfortable look, creating solutions with a striking visual impact: this is the mix&match approach. This distinct contrast with minimalism is the ideal furnishing choice for those seeking to combine styles and to take a step beyond tradition and to design functional living spaces marked by striking contrasts.
Past meets present, forming a smooth, graceful style for original living spaces that tell the story of the passing of time. A country-style kitchen, featuring a traditional-style wrought iron hood, an elegant worktop in marble-effect porcelain stoneware teamed with a large island in antiqued wood with a white painted finish: these are just a couple of examples.
Together with furniture and accessories, Casalgrande Padana ceramic tiles form an actual furnishing accessory able to combine perfectly with any other type of material, from natural materials such as wool, cotton or silk to industrially produced materials such as iron, steel, glass, aluminium or concrete. With its original, cheerful combinations, the mix&match style can also enhance settings, bringing a personal touch to floors and walls with porcelain stoneware tiles. The wide choice of colours, surfaces, thicknesses and formats offers endless style options, in a fun, skilful mix of contrasting styles and shades, and the large formats make it possible to lay the porcelain stoneware tiles without cutting them, with a minimal number of barely visible joints that can be used to create a wallpaper look, to tile walls and doors flush with walls, covering either the whole wall or just a part of it.
