These sleek asian-influenced tiles are the ultimate in visual harmony


These Asian-influenced tiles maintain a simple, sleek aesthetic and natural colour palette and look amazing in any space

Asian-style interiors instantly evoke an image of serenity and tranquillity, in particular those with a Japanese influence. Harmony and balance blend with precision and clean lines to create a soothing, striking interior. Visual and textural, a Japanese-fusion interior is innately simple and seemingly effortless, with clean and well-defined straight lines, minimalist decorations and sleek symmetry.

A tile range combining the expertise of National Tiles with the ethos of Grand Designs

Grand Designs has partnered exclusively with National Tiles to create the stunning Capsule Collection of high-quality, affordable asian-influenced tiles and flooring. All products are hand-picked according to Grand Designs’ ethos and principles, allowing you to create your own grand design at home with National Tiles.

The procurement team travels overseas several times a year, working closely with supply partners and design teams to source new manufacturers and offer Australians the best possible tiles available.

The colours

The colours of nature work best in a Japanese fusion interior, mixing shades of green and grey with black and white for a dramatic effect and a relaxed ambience.

The collection

Japanese Impression

The Japanese Impression series is inspired by Japanese Raku ware with its rich colour variation and irresistible crackle glaze. The collection is made up of small-format stick mosaics in a stackbond pattern with five speckled colourways with a subtle antique edge.

It’s spectacular for bathrooms, kitchens, features and splashbacks, laid in a horizontal or vertical pattern.


The Yaki tile collection is inspired by the ancient Japanese art of Yakisugi or Shou Sugi Ban. The surface design emulates the deep blacks and weathered whites created by this beautifully decorative technique. With a tactile, craquelure surface that catches and refracts light, the porcelain Yaki series is striking yet warm, with a modern elegance. Available in three sizes with designs that include both planks and parquetry, the Yaki series is ideal for creating dramatic, contemporary interiors steeped in tradition. It’s suitable for walls and floors.
