Porcelain shouldn’t be limited to bathrooms and flooring. Designed to mimic the look of metal that has been weathered from exposure to the natural elements, the Oxide Collection by Crossville comes in seven colors for modernist skinning of walls, doors, countertops, and other custom applications in both commercial and residential settings. Oxide, which comes in 3mm-thick, 3’4”-by-10’-panels, can cover existing tile, wood, and painted finishes. laminambycrossville.com
