JOHNSON TILES - local leader
The team at JOHNSON TILES visited CERSAIE 2010 and garnered valuable
insight into current ceramic tile trends, including styles, sizes, finishes
“If I had to give an overall report of the fair it can be summed up that ‘less
is more’ as described by some of the ceramic stylists,” says Jayson Parrott,
national sales manager of JOHNSON TILES.
Premium ranges featured high-honed surfaces with a realistic feel created
through inkjet technology. Ultra-realistic marble lookalikes were further
enhanced through inkjet technology and displayed in rectangular formats
in horizontal installations.
A new innovation is thin full-bodied porcelain tiles in large formats such
as 1 metre x 3 metre in size with thin 4mm bisques. The mixture of
textures and a variety of sizes were prominent throughout the differing
design styles, from classic to contemporary styles.
“We’ll see these trends filter through to our local market as the retail
sector, residential and commercial markets demandfashionable tiles.
Local tile manufacturers with the righttechnology will be able to offer
these new trends,” says Parrott.
JOHNSON TILES keeps abreast of trends through new product development
and looks at various textures, sizes and structures to add innovation to its
ranges. The company services the contracts and retail markets and has
professional and dedicated contracts consultants supporting projects from
design to delivery.
JOHNSON TILES continues to provide South Africa’s leading building supply
retailers with locally produced and imported tile ranges and takes pride in
