Crossville Inc. has announced the launch of State of Grace, a tile collection that interprets the delicate and elegant look of Italian marble in a durable, powerful porcelain body. This line offers specifiers inventive options—including Crossville’s first domestically produced 24-in.-by-48-in. field tile—to design stunning looks for commercial and residential settings.

“True marble is a tender stone that’s prone to etching and chipping,” explains Lindsey Waldrep, Crossville’s VP of marketing. “State of Grace offers all the style of marble with durability and strength that outperforms the real thing—no sealing required. This collection is an optimal solution for areas where natural marble wouldn’t be viable.”

“We’ve captured the best of all the marble looks to create a truly unique collection that can’t be replicated. You won’t find this appearance anywhere else,” Waldrep shares.
