At Thorntree, we love to fiesta! That’s why we created a party in a box to highlight some of our favorite products in a fun and festive way. Cinco de Mayo is a celebration of Mexican heritage, and although our products are from all over the world, we hand selected items that highlight the beauty of Mexico. This box has 10 different themed samples and a delicious beverage to spark creativity in your next project.

 

Included in this quarter’s box are a handful of textures, finishes, and sizes – Oh my! We started the box strong with a Sensi White Lithos porcelain because of its’ bush-hammered sandy texture. The composition of this material transports us to a beach like Isla Mujeres or Playa del Carmen. We paired this stone with a Modulo Muschio Incisco ceramic wall tile in teal with linear definition to symbolize ocean waves.

 

Ceramic wall tiles are so trendy now, we added 3 more fun colors to represent the Mexican flag. First, we have a beveled gloss Tinte Verde lime green tile, an Aroma Amaranto red gloss tile, and a Modulo Gesso Decoro Tondi white tile. The texture of the white tile is adorned with polished porcelain circles to add a fun flair to your exterior projects.

To tie in wooden accents that are often prevalent in Mexican design, (especially in Tulum!) We added in the Les Bois Slavonia Versailles. Although this gorgeous porcelain is from Italy, it is durable and made to look like parquet wood. It brings warm and earthy tones to this eclectic palette. The parquet wood design is complimented by the Palladion Dark Polished marble that is rich in color and class – much like Mexican culture.

 

Next, we included The Bellagio Lasso, a funky limestone from Mexico. Easily guessed by its’ name, the limestone has a unique raised lasso pattern precisely cut by waterjet. The lasso is a fascinating take on Mexican Vaqueros that herded livestock after learning the technique from Spain.

 

 

To tie off our quarterly box, we included 2 mosaic styles because no box is complete without a mosaic! We will be celebrating this fun holiday poolside with some Jose Cuervo and lime, so it’s only fitting that we added in the Solid Ash Mosaic. This iridescent matte and gloss mix is a perfect match for a waterline on your outdoor pool. We finished the box off with a Bianco Mist Split-Hexagon mosaic because this unique shape and style brings the party to any space.

 

We hope you enjoy the deconstructed concepts we bring to each of our quarterly boxes. Keep an eye out for the next one and reach out if you would like one of these boxes for yourself!
