Daltile Designer Nods To “Noble Simplicity” Trend

Dallas, TX – March 23, 2022 – As part of the newly released Daltile Trend Report 2022, the brand’s lead product designer Laura Grilli shares her thoughts on the currently popular trend that she calls “Noble Simplicity”.

“Noble Simplicity is a trend about living with less, focusing on the essential and decluttering our spaces and minds,” said Laura Grilli, director of product design for Daltile. “It is an invitation to slow down, go back to essentials and reconnect with our inner selves.”

“This trend is a response to our fast-paced globalized world, mass consumerism culture, the overwhelming use of technology and the lack of human touch aggravated by the global pandemic,” added Grilli. “Purity, minimalism and simplicity are at the forefront of this design trend. Eliminating outside chaos brings a sense of serenity and calmness to the space. We find peace in the purity of this trend. Noble Simplicity is about fine craftsmanship, details and the care that human beings use to create something.”
