Tile manufacturers did not do very well with bright colors this year. We photographed everything that there was in this category and posted the photos in Cersaie 2012 photo report. Part I.
Since manufacturers mainly produced imitation stone tile they decided to continue with the idea and create decors from the same material. The descendants of Raphael and Velasquez concentrated all their abilities and created giant tile cheese graters.

It probably took them a while to get to this point and many ideas were exchange, which is why three dimensional decors all looked somewhat the same.

Porcelanosa was a bit different - its booth reminded the work of a crazy Lego fan, who is very hardworking and wants to be praised for his work.

Well, that's why a trend is a trend - it gives the visitor a way to firmly master the difference between the good and evil by the end of the exhbiition. Evil is making someone clean this type of tile.

Evil can be made better if you place some large nuts around it.

Potential evil can take on many forms

But even original potential evil promises suffering.

If you have a fight with your designer and underpay him, he can become completely evil and install a three dimensional decor with rough surfaces in your apartment! Just imagine how nice that could be!

This is what Atlas Concorde offers especially for hotels and business-centers. This year, their entire booth was decorated as a lounge and bathroom zones for a business traveler. Obviously, the angry face of such business traveler will be lit by a smile when he sees this magnificence and his figure, tired from all the worries and flights, will rise up like Italian pine.

After all, there is good old concervatism in the world still. As far as any cleaning lady is concerned, the option that was offerec by Sant Agostino is the best.

A very concervative option was offered by Aparici. This manufacturer knows what it's doing as its tile is sold in Russia and all other manufacturers are eating their hearts out sprinkling themselves with crumbs of 3D decors.

And finally, the good old Tecno Art Marmi factory, which, unlike all others, sells real stone, not immitation stone tile, and trully constructs 3D decors from different large parts, such as cubes, and doesn't print forms. The factory manufacturs such decors for quite a long time and is probably the only one, whose three dimensional decors look trully three dimensional.

And there is the light, light, light version - 3D decors that are drawn. After all, maybe not so rich, but kind and sensitive people live in Portugal.

Of course, not only three dimensional decors could be seen at such a large exhibition as Cersaie. You can read other parts of the photo review here:
