About Gruppo Romani Spa
A powerhouse in the ceramic and porcelain tile industry, Grupo Romani Spa has more than 50 years of experience. Their products, made in Italy and celebrated for their quality and design, have reached more than 85 countries around the world.
The company was founded by the close-knit family duo Lamberto Romani and Alba Maria Spadazzi and has grown and flourished into a global player. Today, Giorgio and Paolo, their sons, have elevated the company to a prominent status in the industry and the local community.
Since its inception in 1968, Gruppo Romani Spa has embodied Italian values through dedication, expertise, and relentless growth. The rebranding to Gruppo Romani in 2016 marked a milestone for their brands Serenissima, Cir, Cercom, Cerasarda, and Isla, which gained stronger individual identities.
To showcase their endless designs and styles, Gruppo Romani Spa has put together an inspiration gallery with looks in:
This wood look collection features a set of glazed porcelain stoneware tiles inspired by Japanese tatamis and natural materials like rice straw, woven rush, wood, and linen. While their origin lies in the past, the tiles offer a modern interpretation and bring the warmth of history into any space.
Available in a spectrum of colors—white, beige, sand, and brown—Tatami gives you the freedom to add your personal touch to your bathroom, kitchen, or living room. You can also choose between the traditional and dec styles to match your aesthetic preference.
For example, if you want to create a bright, spa-like bathroom, consider using beige traditional tiles from this collection. Beige tiles have a calming effect and can turn your bathroom into a peaceful oasis. As for size, opting for medium Tatami tiles can provide a balanced and spacious feel to the room.
The I Roveri collection is a tribute to the timeless beauty of sessile oak. Born from porcelain stoneware, these tiles have a surface that mirrors the natural allure of oak wood, making them a smart choice for those looking to give familiar and cozy touch to their spaces.
The collection's name, I ROVERI, encompasses four color variations, each showing the tones acquired by oak wood through different treatments and the aging process. Let's take a closer look at each shade:
- Rovere Intenso: This warm-toned color stands out with graphics like knots, holes, and cracks to create a delightful contrast.
- Rovere Antico: Oak wood ages and lightens over time, and Rovere Antico tiles echo this unique color. Smooth grain and a refined gray tone enhance the antique aesthetic.
- Rovere Naturale: The lightest shade in the collection, Rovere Naturale captures the essence of natural sessile oak wood. It blends bright highlights and neutral tones to add a touch of sophistication to your floors and walls.
- Rovere Decapé: Drawing inspiration from the pickled finish technique on wood, Rovere Decapé delivers a bold hazel tone, accented by a white grain. This contemporary hue brings a sense of modernity to the collection.
The tiles in the Melange collection are a beautiful fusion of soft colors inspired by minimalist painted wood. They have a light grain texture and a smooth finish, which gives them an authentic and cozy appearance to any room.
The Melange collection features wood-like tiles in six different tones:
Briccole tiles are designed to bring the authentic feel of natural wood to your home. This collection strikes a balance between a rustic and elegant style, which makes them a perfect match for both traditional and sophisticated spaces.
The tiles capture the rich character of wood that's been shaped by time and weather, as they have small knots and a mix of thick and delicate grain. They even show the dried grain effect from wood aging in special salty environments.
With two different finishes and beige, brown, amber, and gray tones to choose from, Briccole works for all sorts of home projects. The collection also comes in five different sizes, including:
From cozy living rooms to modern kitchens, these tiles bring the outdoors in, adding natural vibes to your spaces.

If you’re looking for wood-like tiles that feel fancy and calming at the same time, the Shibusa collection is for you. It takes inspiration from the way wood veining looks to create a simple yet classy design.
With six captivating shades of white, brown, and black, you're free to create spaces that reflect your style.
The Gems collection combines the elegance of precious stones with the rustic charm of wood. These ceramic tiles were born to cater to modern designers and their love for contemporary aesthetics, as their surface is infused with striking chromatic variations, unexpected veins, and the alluring effects of wear.
The Gems Collection offers a deep and intense palette with the following colors:
- Bianco (white)
- Agata (dark brown)
- Quarzo (black and brown)
- Fumée (light gray)
The textures of the tiles complement its vibrant colors, and you also have the freedom to experiment with different laying patterns using the different slat sizes.
For example, consider using Agata tiles for a modern kitchen backsplash, as their intricate veining and brown, matte tones can give the space an industrial look. Install them in a herringbone pattern to create a visual focal point that draws the eye and complements the contemporary design of your kitchen.
The Acanto collection is inspired by the beauty of nature's acanthus leaves, which were used for decoration in ancient times. Thanks to smart technology, these tiles capture the natural imperfections of wood and create a warm, outdoorsy vibe in your home.
Acanto comes in welcoming tones like white, dark gray, honey, and caramel, giving you endless possibilities to make your home spaces unique to you.
The Essence collection gives you the best of both worlds: the appeal of wood and the strength and practicality of ceramic. Wood is known for bringing warmth and a welcoming feel to homes and commercial spaces, so Essence tiles take the charm of various wood types to get the delightful irregular patterns of real wood.
Essence has five colors to choose from, including Cream, Mahogany, Brown, White, and Grey, so they can easily match your style – be it classic or modern. You can also mix and match different sizes to create unique patterns on your floors and walls.
In the Norway collection, Gruppo Romani Spa has created tiles that showcase the rich tones of aged Norwegian wood. These products capture the effects of rain, snow, sun, and wind on wood, and showcase six tones from the beautiful forests of Northern Europe.
Depending on the look you’re going for in your next project, you can select between six brown, grayish, and beige tones and two different sizes. If you're aiming for a rustic and inviting ambiance, consider the golden-brown tones, which resonate with the cozy feeling of well-aged wood.
For homeowners who prefer a more sophisticated look, the grayish tones might be more suitable because they add splash of modernity.
The Painted Wood collection brings a touch of originality to your spaces. It features a range of wood base tones, including brown, white, gray, and caramel, adorned with strokes of white paint. This fusion of colors and textures lends depth and character to kitchen and living room floors.
Painted wood tiles can complement both industrial and contemporary decor, merging with different furniture and accents. In a kitchen, you can pair the brown-toned wood base option with steel accents to create a sleek design. For a cozy bedroom, the caramel design with beige and wood furniture can give a hint of rustic charm.
