Trend UK, the producer of colour glass mosaic tiles and engineered stone surfaces, has recently joined ArtiCAD's Supplier Partnership Programme. The products are sold and used domestically for kitchen and bathroom worktops, splashbacks, floors, shower walls, feature walls and swimming pools.
Danny Hanlon, UK COO, of the company’s consumer brand and franchise network, Granite & TREND Transformations, said: “We have been working with ArtiCAD for many years, although much more closely since 2022 when ArtiCAD developed our new web-based 3D kitchen design tool for consumers. This enables our customers to quickly and easily choose from a huge range of colours and styles for every part of their kitchen makeover. Using such a tool gives consumers greater confidence in their choices, as well as encouraging them to take a very active role in the design of their kitchen. We also have experience of the power of ArtiCAD design software as many of our franchisees use it to visualise how their customers’ kitchen makeovers will look.”
Trend is working solely with ArtiCAD as the company’s preferred CAD and design software supplier. The company’s new ArtiCAD catalogue spans several product ranges – including etherium engineered stone, glass mosaic tiles, glass tiles such as Subway, Metropolis and Liberty, and Artistic Mosaic. In addition, Trend recently launched a collection of etherium products called Trascenda. This comprises seven marble patterns. Its engineered stone properties makes it resistant to stains, with no need for sealing unlike natural products. It also offers significant cost savings and is easy to maintain.
Theresa Turner, a director of ArtiCAD, said: “We are delighted to welcome Trend to our vibrant Supplier Partnership Programme. It is always particularly exciting when a new supplier with unique products joins the scheme – both for us at ArtiCAD but most importantly for all the designers using our software, who now have quick and easy access to the wonders of the Trend portfolio.”
