Earp Bros’ Crystal range is a decorative and versatile alternative to colour-backed glass.
December 5th, 2011
The Crystal range from Earp Bros is set to be the next big thing in interior design, perfect for any surfaces requiring colour-backed glass.
Crystal is a large format, rectified glass glazed tile measuring 333mm x 1000mm, available in a range of both jewel and earthy tones for a wall of high gloss colour.
Shades of orange, cherry, acid green, white, vanilla, mocha, brown, graphite and black are each available with a perfectly matched grout.
Crystal Deco, a patterned range, has a tone-on-tone tracery motif in eight colourways. Crystal Ondas features an understated self-coloured striated pattern.
Crystal also includes the Glass and Glass Twin ranges, Glass with its architectural tone-on-tone pinstripe and the powerfully linear Glass Twin.
With this range of colours and patterns, Crystal can be adapted to a variety of interiors, adding a splash of colour and a smooth gloss to feature walls, bathrooms, kitchen splashbacks – any surface that once called for colour-backed glass. Strong and hard-wearing, it can also withstand the pressures of commercial applications, such as hotel lobbies and store interiors.
The tile is stain resistant, hygienic and easy to clean. It gives the appearance of colour-backed glass – at 80% less of the cost.
Earp Bros Glass Tiles are fully rectified, requiring minimal grout joints. Their colour and gloss allow them to perfectly complement surrounding finishes, from timber, stone and metal to veneers and laminates.
