Small, imperfect gardens: the latest trend in outdoor spaces

Memo by Marazzi: the stone effect becomes even more natural thanks to the uneven edges and the increased thickness, ideal for outdoors
One of the 2018 trends for outdoor livingis the “imperfect garden”.
Forget perfect rows of immaculate flowerbeds or manicured lawns: the imperfect garden imitates nature, which also means embracing its “flaws”. The Japanese “Wabi Sabi” trend therefore moves from the home to the garden, for natural, constantly evolving outdoor spaces. At the same time, there is a rediscovered appreciation of hand-crafted items, with imperfections that underline their authenticity.
What’s more, outdoor areas are increasingly being furnished for open-air dining or relaxation; as well as the familiar verandas and patios next to the house, even small areas deep in the garden itself are being equipped for this purpose. These more and more multifunctional areas must be designed with state-of-the-art materials which can be left outdoors: paving must be resistant to water and weather and anti-slip, yet also have looks that dialogue attractively with natural contexts.
It is an accurate porcelain stoneware evocation of two types of stone - Pietra Italia and Burgundy Limestone- now even more realistic thanks to their uneven edges. Perfect for creating outdoor spaces in natural, rustic taste, the collection is available in the 20x20 cm and 20x40 cm sizes and with thickness boosted to 14 mm, guaranteeing exceptional strength.
