The pressed lumber material is cropping up in chic cafes and shops around the Western world, although it generally isn't considered sufficiently comfortable to be brought into the home. The Pinocchi Collection by 14 Ora Italiana makes a successful compromise by offering a range of ceramic tiles that masquerade as wooden panels.
The familiar pale wood grain pattern has been applied to the faces of the porcelain pieces, allowing them to look like individual boards. With crisp edges, the panels can be applied to walls and floors and sit nearly flush against one another for a smooth and continuous surface. The divinely deceptive Pinocchi Collection is even more of a decorative treat, with the way that textural overlays can be applied to produce the visual effect of plaid or tartan.
