And so continues my long-standing love affair with both tiles and plants, cascading together into a perfect product that truly fills me with inspiration and makes me want to
Working as part of the Saint-Gobain family, CTD Architectural Tiles is a high-end ceramic tile manufacturer, and their latest Amazonia range of botanical ceramic tiles is a perfect meeting point between art and design.
Utilising a rustic style, and drawing on inspiration from the fashion world, these tiles conjure up a remote jungle landscape.

Personally, I would have these botanical ceramic tiles in my home tomorrow if I could.
The Amazonia tiles, each bespoke and created using handcrafted moulds, come in two shapes – square (13.82cm) or hexagonal (32 x 36.8cm) – and are available in five mix-and-match colour schemes so they fit together like a patchwork puzzle. No piece ever looks out of place despite the way the design cuts off at a clean angle. The irregular dimensions reveal slight differences in every tile, and the shade and texture of each tile also differ from piece to piece, making each lush green,
The beautiful handcrafted botanical ceramic tiles draw inspiration from the jungles of South America and will transport you straight to the Amazon. They proudly display the deep emerald green of lush chlorophyll-packed foliage, the rich black of a cloudless night sky and the moody grey of storm clouds rolling above.

They provide a great way to bring the outside in and connect you to the great outdoors. But they are not just suited to residential homes. They would work equally well in commercial or hospitality project.
I must mention at this
Words can’t seem to define how beautiful, versatile and commanding these botanical ceramic tiles are, but the pictures more than speak for themselves. So I’ll leave you with a few more and at the end, you can leave me a comment to let me know what you think about Amazonia?
