Trending and Traditional Tile Options
Tile X Design is pleased to announce the addition of Tonalite to our brand offerings, thus providing our clients some of the widest ranges of design-forward tile collections coming out of Italy. As one of the most respected in the industry, they’ve been a manufacturer of craftsman style ceramic and porcelain tiles since 1974.


The collections emphasize a start to finish design, offering a variety of geometric shapes, contemporary sizes, and coordinating trim pieces for your projects. Each collection also provides both classic and contemporary colors, surfaces, and textures. We are certain you will find what you didn’t know you were looking for in the collections by Tonalite.


TXD now stocks a wide color palette from lines we knew would excite our customers here in the Twin Cities, going with a variety of classic colors and textural offerings. But if you are looking for that unique hand-painted style or a contemporary eclectic look, we’ve made the rest of each line available for special order.

Dimensional, Geometric and Textural Tile Designs
Tissue provides a random variety of woven fabric style patterns and 8 colors suitable for any space and any design concept. They are a 6x6 glossy crackle finish decorative wall tile, which allows the texture of the pattern to become a dimensional feature of the final installation given different lighting conditions.


The horizontal striations and the vibrant glossy colors on the 4x16 Paintboard, give the impression of antique lacquered wood, which delivers a gorgeous contemporary finish. Consider using different tile patterns, like herringbone or go vertical to emphasize the movement in the finish, either way this wall tile will surely impress.


The stocked Metal collection provides a smooth finish with slight surface undulations, and by special order, this wall tile collection expands to include the textile pattern mix.


Scandi is a gorgeous collection; though a contemporary 4x16 tile, it provides a classic smooth matte subway tile finish. If you were looking for a more transitional style to your tile backsplash, this will be your favorite. Just like most of the lines available, it’s available in a wide range of classic and contemporary colors, including textural patterns by special order.


If your design is seeking a little more flexibility than a traditional hexagon can provide, Trapez can deliver it in all the classic and modern colors available in the Tonalite palette in matte or glossy. Think alternating colors and finishes, or installing the tile in a way that develops an image.


For those design oriented projects needing something fresh and unique, discover the Geomat collection. Based on innovative geometric, though (arguably) ancient tile shapes, it offers a scallop or fan, as well as a star-like shape. These are porcelain floor tiles and available as special order direct from the factory in Italy.


If you are local to Minneapolis or the Twin Cities area, you can stop by our Plymouth showroom and get a sneak peek at the newest decorative wall tile collection: Oblique by Tonalite. We are especially excited about it, as it provides contemporary 3D interest while being a more classic tile size.


As a direct importer and distributor for Tonalite, Tile X Design has access to all the beautiful and versatile product lines they offer. What we may not have available as stock, we have the ability to place special orders for – our sales representatives can even order samples of those items you’ve been eyeing if it’s something we do not currently sample.
