Modern manufacturing methods have made it possible for us to have all kinds of fascinating materials in our homes. Italian company Tagina makes a line of ceramic tiles that look just like natural and metallic woods.

The ceramic tiles, known collectively as Lignite, are imprinted with realistic wood grain. Each tile looks like a unique piece of natural material.

The coloring of the tiles ranges from natural, variegated wood hues to striking, shiny grey that looks like a metal/wood hybrid.

While it may seem a little strange to disguise ceramic tiles as wood ones, there is a simple and intelligent reason behind these tiles. Ceramic is very tough and can stand up to high traffic in a way that real wood can’t.

This durability means that Lignite tiles are perfect for businesses and other high-traffic areas where the look of wood will add so much but real wood flooring just isn’t practical.
