An Age-Old Graining Technique Meets Digital Technology in Story Teller, the Latest Porcelain Tile Collection From Crossville
The Look of the Ancient Art of Cerusing Results in Nuanced Tile Style in Four Color Pairings

Crossville, Tennessee – Crossville, Inc. has announced the launch of its new Story Teller porcelain tile collection. This unique wood-look collection captures the graining effect achieved through the antique art of cerusing with modern digital technology to provide a mirrored, light-and-dark woodgrain appearance. Cerusing is a 16th-century contrasting technique developed to highlight the graining of wood, yet its stunning effects are as current today as when they were first discovered long ago.

“Story Teller has a key story to tell. Apart from being a beautiful and very realistic wood in porcelain tile, it also works as four color pairs. These are light and dark versions of tones inspired by cerusing and reverse cerusing,” explains Scott Jones, Crossville director of product development. “If a designer wanted, Story Teller offers built-in coordination for wall-to-floor or floor-to-floor transitions.”

Each of Story Teller’s four pairs of colorways—Satiric and Serious, Falsity and Fact, Villain and Hero, and Evil and Good—is designed to reflect the pale and deepened tonalities generated by this cerusing process.The contrasts offer visual transitions between floors and walls and strike a unique balance in design.

Story Teller comes in a 6” x 48” plank tile size that is ideal for creating a variety of custom tile patterns. Designers may also incorporate the collection’s standard 2”x2” square mosaic or the 1”x6” brick mosaic to add interest to any design. Additionally, the covebase and bullnose trim finish installations in style.

Responsibly manufactured in the U.S., Story Teller is suitable for interior floors and walls and covered exterior walls in commercial and residential settings. It’s a certified porcelain product and GreenSquared certified.
