We promised you new tile arrivals at Tile Outlets of America and they are now available! We can't highlight every single one; however, just so you get a feel for why we're so excited about these new products, I've selected 30 of them for this article.
We discovered these latest new products while visiting several of the top tile trade shows.
We started the year in Spain with the Cevisama show where we detail Five Strong Tile Trends. From there, we explored the Revestir show in Brazil.
Then, in April we attended the biggest tile event of the year, Coverings 2017 in Orlando, Florida.
These new products truly result from those visits and conversations with tile manufacturing facilities from around the world.
Highlighting 30 New Tile Arrivals Available at Tile Outlets of America
I picked the 30 I'm highlighting from the following categories:

- 4 New Light Wood Planks
- 1 New Porcelain Pattern Tile
- 6 New 36x36 Medallions
- 3 New 12x24 Formats

Let's explore them all in more detail. I think you'll quickly see why we are so excited about them.
New Wood Porcelain Tile Planks
In this category, we identified three must-have new tile planks.
1. Eco Chic Series
The Eco Chic series is made in Italy and consists of an 8x47 inch format porcelain plank with a rectified edge.
Eco Chic comes in three exotic colors: Elephant, Zebra and Miele that offer different levels of contrast and warmth.
2. Malborck Series
The Malborck series come from Spain. This 6x35 porcelain wood plank is available in three colors: Bianco, Viejo and Gris.
The Marlborck Bianco 6x35 is featured in this room scene below.
The Malborck Viejo 6x35 wood plank is rich and chocolate-y.
The Malborck Gris 6x35 has a nuttier quality.
All three feature beautiful wood-grain variations.
3. Norton Series
The Norton series comes from Brazil. This porcelain wood plank tile comes in a 6.5x40 rectified wood plank in two colors: Tobacco and Walnut.
You see Norton Tobacco 6.5x40 featured below.
Compare it to Norton Walnut 6.5x40 in the image below where see it used as both a floor and wall tile.
Norton in both colors looks more rustic than Malborck or Eco Chic.
New Light Wood Plank Tile Arrivals
A strong trend for wood plank tiles has been lighter wood styles. That's why you'll find four new tile arrivals in lighter tones.
1. Eco Rovere Patina
Eco Rovere Patina 6x24 is a white wood porcelain plank from Brazil with a subtle but very rich wood grain pattern.
2. Solna Natural
Solna Natural 6x35 is a porcelain light wood plank from Spain.
3. Decape White Wood Plank Tile
Decape White 9x47 is a porcelain wood plank tile from Spain.
This color complements the other Decape colors available – Gris and Natural.
4. Fusion White Wood Plank Tile
Fusion White 6.5x40 is a porcelain wood plank with a white wash look. This product is from Brazil. We love the birch-like wood pattern.
Porcelain Pattern Tiles
In this category, we found a truly exciting pattern!
Chester Silver Pattern
You are going to have to look again and very closely at this marble looking porcelain tile style called Chester Silver!
Chester Silver looks like a stone pattern, but is actually a porcelain tile sold in a modular pattern in one box. Here is your Travertine/stone floor tile option with no maintenance.
Chester Silver brings our modular box porcelain series count up to two. Also check out the Sienna Beige Modular Pattern.
New 36x36 Tile and Stone Medallions
Medallions are hugely popular! To our current collection, we have added six new medallions in a 36x36 format. Three formats are tumbled and three formats are polished. We named them after the islands – Aruba, Bonaire, Curacao, Trinidad and Compass Star Polished and Compass Tumbled.
You see them featured in the image below - the top row of four and the two to the left of the bottom row.
New 12x24 Formats
Rectangular tile formats continue to be popular. One extreme is the plank tile format. The other is the 12x24 format. We have identified three new 12x24 tile styles for you.
1. Stone Studio Tile Series
The Stone Studio tile series is made in Italy.
This series comes in 4 colors – Sabbia, Avorio, Grigio and Blu - and consists of a through body porcelain stoneware. The look is meant to look and feel like stone.
The image below features Stone Studio Sabbia on the left and color Avorio on the right.
Below, you see Stone Studio Blu 12x24 on the left and Grigio - shown in a larger format - on the right.
The Blu is really unique and different when it comes to a blue color. Be sure to check this out.
Note that you can also find a 3x12 plank tile in the Avorio and Grigio colors at Tile Outlets.
2. Toscana Series
The 12x24 Toscana porcelain series is from Brazil and features natural Travertine looks.
This series is available in three colors: Almond, Beige and Noce.
Two colors - Almond and Beige - are available in a 24x24 format.
In the image below, you see Toscana Almond 24x24 on the left and Toscana Beige 12x24 on the right. I love how the beautiful this series looks when it continues from floor to wall.
The image below features Toscana Noce 12x24.
This series also comes with a 2x2 mosaic to complement any shower floor or wall.
3. Hemisphere Tile Series
The Hemisphere series is a porcelain metal lappato (or metal concrete) look in 12x24 tile. It comes in two colors: Copper and Iron and includes a matching matte 2x2 mosaic.
In the image below, you see Hemisphere Iron on the left and Copper on the right.
New Polished Tiles
Polished tiles go hand-in-hand with classic stone looks.
1. Alpine Polished Tile Series
Alpine Statuario Polished 24x24 porcelain tile comes in a rectified format.
It's also available in 12x24 format if you want to use it on the walls, although both formats are suitable for floors and walls.
The Alpine Gris comes only in a 24x24 size.
Notice how both feature beautiful stone-like striations.
2. Kashmir Polished Tile Series
The Kashmir polished tile series is available in two colors Perla in 24x24 and Hueso in 15x30.
These items come from Spain and are both rectified.
Produced with Leviglass technology for a beautiful polished finish, they can be used on the floors and walls.
You see Kashmir Hueso 15x30 in the image below.
Here is Kashmir Perla 24x24.
Both colors look stunning!
New Mosaics in the House
I am such a big fan on mosaics! They are gems that add the perfect touch of color, detail and visual interest to a backsplash, a feature wall, a shower wall and more.
Here are 11 new styles to share with you.
