Bathroom Furniture Set & Ceramic Tiling
The new Saraylı Collection,strives to unite the traditional with modern lines and reinterpret palace motifs with hundreds of years of history in the new Saraylı Collection with the characteristics of Ottoman style. The project idea has been shaped with the aim of serving this style with an accessible design for the users. The design elements of the collection has been created as following;
"Birun": The series that gets its name from “Birun,” the area outside of the harem suite, combines the simple texture of marble with gold details. The series where the gold details are transferred to the decor and background tiles has been combined with cut gold mosaics in a modern approach.
"Enderun": The series that combines the details from the robes, tulips and chintemani figures of the presentation room in the inner part of the Ottoman palace where the Padishah would accept ambassadors and viziers, gets its inspiration from fancy jewels and textile fabric.
