Soft tones or vibrant accents, botanical or geometric patterns, textures inspired by natural elements and modules that range from large slabs to small sizes and cement tiles: far from being a neutral and purely functional cladding, ceramics take on a thousand different faces to cultivate a rich selection within the world of decoration. Decorative ceramic tiles therefore define surfaces with a bold aesthetic impact and become key elements in defining the furnishing style, not to mention in visually framing the various environments. What’s more, the material evokes ancient artisanal techniques through industrial productive methods, combining the charm of the handmade with the performance achieved by the most modern technologies.
So how can we orient ourselves within the broad vastness of such offerings?
Marca Corona explores the desire to personalize one’s own spaces at 360°, introducing the Stili di Marca project to support private clients and professionals alike in the design process, helping them recreate the most beloved furnishing styles by combining different ceramic surfaces.
The company offers, in fact, surfaces of all kinds and for a wide variety of needs, embracing an approach that facilitates the combination of different collections and complementary effects to create unique environments.
The world of concretes and resins is inspired by the warm colors of the sand and desert, featured in the Multiforme Dune collection, which expands the well-known Multiforme range with warm nuances. Materialistic textures and natural shades, paired with glossy and vibrant glazes, lend themselves to the development of projects marked by a timeless style, where elegance and modernity come together in complete harmony.
The collection’s signature color is Marsala, a shade with a strong personality perfect for crafting a bold focus wall and for outlining corners or specific portions of the room.
The softness of the new warm and natural tones envelops spaces with a welcoming atmosphere, which is made glamorous when paired to decorative patterns like those in the Terracreta collection. Here, the natural charm of clay is enriched with the inclusion of glass grit, adding three-dimensionality to the decoration.
Terracotta molds a raw material with the craftsmanship and savoir-faire developed throughout Marca Corona’s extensive history.
The result is a collection articulated in two small formats, the 20x20 cm and the hexagon (25x21.6cm), in which each slab features raised and irregular edges typical of handmade workmanship, to be used both on walls and floors.
The simplicity of the surfaces, even in the abundance of decorative options available, lends itself to various combinations to enhance their naturalness and refined character: among them we find the wood-effect strips of the Elisir Royal collection and the glazed strips of Multiforme.
In addition to the colors typical of clay, Terracreta includes the refined Oltremare, a saturated and bold color perfect for urban contexts. The irregularity and imperfections of its surfaces match perfectly with Marco Corona collections inspired by natural stone, such as Arkistyle and Arkistone.
Stoneware evokes two fascinating varieties — Limestone and Terrazzo, linked by the presence of multi-colored granules on the surface — in the Arkistyle palette, in square or hexagonal slabs. The expressiveness of the material becomes a key element to imbue atmospheres with an industrial style, which requires surfaces with a natural and timeless appeal.
The natural character and timeless beauty of stone evoked by Arkistyle lend themselves to pairing with the softer, more enveloping surface tones of the Multiforme collection, creating cozy interiors with a relaxed elegance.
The exploration of natural stone also reaches the instinctive appeal of quartzite, and more specifically of the Mediterranean Kavala Stone, reproduced impeccably on the porcelain stoneware slabs of the Arkiquartz collection.
Aesthetically striking, with a rough that’s soft to the touch, it helps decorate rooms while maintaining elevated non-slip performance.
Nature comes center stage, then, in the indoor garden trend, which interprets the desire for greater contact with greenery by creating full-fledged gardens inside the home. Houseplants and aromatic herbs on kitchen cabinets alternate with botanical patterns that find various interpretations in Marca Corona collections. Mirabilia, in particular, breathes new life into the wallpaper effect through five floral patterns with uniquely different characters, each suited to different tastes and furnishing styles.
Dreamy and refined, the patterns from the Mirabilia collection range from the retro elegance of Floral Bay and Clorofilla to the overflowing colors of Wild Foliage, inspired by a more exotic jungle style.
The perfect pairings? They range from the natural textural effects of stone and marble to surfaces with an urban feel, including the reinterpretations of resins and cements, and to those inspired by the latest design trends.
