Design à la Villeroy & Boch

Caught between past and present – Historically inspired tiles for stylish interiors

For some years, now, the so-called ‘retro’ style, which lends contemporary settings the charm of days gone by, has been very popular. People seek things that tell a story. Whether they confidently display signs of wear or have been carefully restored is purely a matter of taste.

Modern retro design draws on the past and reinterprets historical décors, motifs and finishes. Villeroy & Boch Fliesen, for instance, has sought inspiration in its own history and prepared historical ceramics in a contemporary way. The result: exclusive tile ranges that feature the unmistakable signature of the long-established company: with high-quality design à la Villeroy & Boch.

CENTURY UNLIMITED – An irresistible blend of old and new

For the CENTURY UNLIMITED concept, a modern cotto-cement look has been combined with a décor that adapts the typical motifs of the Mettlach tiles from the 19th century: The historical patterns have been reworked and prepared in up-to-date colours. A comprehensive décor concept has been achieved, made of porcelain stoneware tiles that can be combined to create expressive patterns as well as a random patchwork layout. The richness of variations in décor can create ever-new, surprising images. Whether clear geometries or playful ornamentation, CENTURY UNLIMITED offers countless, individual design options throughout the home, both on the floor and on the wall.
