Crossville Unveils Sahara Noir Porcelain Tile Panel

Crossville, Inc. has announced the introduction of its new Sahara Noir porcelain tile panel. Inspired by Tunisian Black Marble, found on the cusp of the Sahara itself, these unique panels are crafted to replicate the characteristic rich black of the base and the distinctively striking bright orange and white veining of the appearance. The line is made in Italy by Laminam and stocked in the United States.

“Evoking the depth and dimension of the night sky, the deep black background illuminates striations of gold and white streaking across the surface,” said Lindsey Waldrep, Crossville’s VP of Marketing. “As Tunisian Black Marble is fragile in its natural form, Laminam has recreated the most outstanding examples of this dramatic aesthetic for a new addition to our I Naturali collection of porcelain tile panels.”

The Sahara Noir porcelain tile panels are an impressive 1200mm x 3000mm (47 ¼” x 118 7/64”) size format that’s wider than traditional porcelain panels and available in the 5.6mm thickness suitable for interior and exterior walls, counters, furniture, and flooring in dry interior spaces. Mesh backing provides enhanced strength and durability for use on floors and walls in commercial or residential settings.

“This collection is produced by Laminam in Italy using leading-edge production techniques. It represents the amazing progression of what’s possible for porcelain tile today,” Waldrep explains. “The clarity and crispness of the multi-colored veining is spectacular, exceeding others in the marketplace with its visual depth.”

Though Sahara Noir beautifully captures marble’s appearance, the durability of the panels stand in contrast to natural marble’s more tender qualities. The porcelain tile panels offer a durable, non-porous, sustainable solution suitable for most interior and exterior applications in both commercial and high-end residential markets.
