building on basics : eclipse

Tuesday, March 20th, 2018

there’s not much to argue when it comes to a classic.

but when you can build on it…tweak it…play with it a bit, making that classic more

unique, you know you’ve got something good.


our eclipse series is the perfect starting point.

just take one size, in two colors…



mix them up like this… 



or this…



and you’ve got the ideal base for an amazing design.

to the ones who make it,

the ones who show it,

the ones who love it + the ones who choose it.

we love tile, but we love the people involved in the process even more.

over the years, our vendors + representatives have become dear friends,

and we’ve reaped the benefits…

they’ve enabled us to form relationships with amazing factories + introduced us to inspiring product…

they’ve given us reason to gather with good food…

and in good company…


we couldn’t be more grateful. 



*many thanks to paje victoria for awesome photos, stable cafe for a beautiful space, francesco and kronos ceramiche for inspiring product  + paolo tunini for the incredible, homemade focaccia.*

brick is having a major moment in design (when wasn’t it, really?).  we’ve always loved the look, but we know not everyone is fortunate enough to have exposed brick in their homes.  now everyone can actually get the look with our ‘brick‘ series.


brick is in.  and it’s good.  get it here.

We’re typically of a ‘less is more’ mindset,

especially when something seems to be trending in a big way…

pattern.both copy

We’re open-minded, though.  Especially when our manufacturers help tip the scales.


We’re just trying to say that, no matter what:

We’ve got you covered.
