PRODUCT OF THE MONTH – TREND AQUATICA
This month’s ‘Product of the Month’ features the new TREND Aquatica Mosaic collection and Sareen Stone's exclusive Silver Ash Travertine - both pegged as this year’s newest trend in pool and spa design.The very cool new range of stunningly attractive, sustainably-produced glass mosaic tiles from international manufacturers Trend has finally hit Aussie shores.
The new Aquatica glass mosaic collection is designed specifically for swimming pools and water features. The collection was specifically designed in colours and patterns chosen to reflect the brightness of the sky and water, giving a luminous look. There is a choice of classic colourings, for blending elegantly and discreetly into the landscape, and more playful and scenic designs.
Aquatica mixes and shading blends are made in square format tiles from the Vitreo, Brillante and Shining collections.
Known both for their cutting-edge design and sustainable manufacturing practices, Trend glass mosaic tiles are made from post-consumer and post-industrial recycled glass, and this emphasis on low environmental impact is at the heart of all they do.
The Aquatica collection is made using up to 55% post-consumer recycled glass, with low VOC emission. However, this does not in any way detract from the boldness of their vision, and the vibrant colours and inventive patterns and designs of their mosaic tiles to create truly eye-catching design concepts.
Silver Ash TravertineWant a standout natural stone tile that looks perfect inside and out? A stone that adds character without over dramatizing a room our outdoor area, yet adds emphasis to blue, white and grey hues?
A natural stone with European flair, Silver Ash Travertine will enhance any internal or external area such as a pool or spa. Because Silver Ash Travertine is a grey toned stone, it creates subtle contrast to cobalt blues, chalky whites and lush green landscaping.
This particular natural stone is the perfect companion to the Trend Aquatica mosaic collection due to its delightful, mid tone grey colour with soft patterns of brown, dark ash and rust tones interwoven into its surface – it definitely adds contrast specifically when tumbled.
A remarkable stone, Silver Ash Travertine is suitable for all modern and period style homes and commercial spaces and is available in Honed & Tumbled finishes.
TREND Plus System innovates InstallationTREND Australasia has released the new Trend Plus mosaic backing system now featured on the new Aquatica collection.

It can be used with every kind of specific adhesives for glass mosaic (concrete, polyurethane and epoxy), ensuring a perfect seal in any interior or external application.
TREND Plus represents the best solution for the installation of the mosaic in any environment, including where there's direct contact with water as in steam baths and swimming pools.
