mixed + matched

November 12th, 2013



We’ve had a love-hate relationship with it for some time now.

But, to be fair, we’ve also often overlooked how truly influential it is in the realm of tile + stone design.

One can completely transform an installation simply by selecting a shade to complement-or contrast-the tile they’ve chosen.

Contemporary and Classic

September 10th, 2013

Pattern [we love].

July 3rd, 2013

The Hexagon.  Another classic, another pattern we can’t get enough of.

And it can be found in so many different, desirable forms…

traditional white + black in a contrasting pattern…

in marble.

an update to the classic, in a larger scale.

playing with pattern.

with just enough detail…

and in the most simple of states.

in pattern + color.

with subtle detail in limestone.

a more modern take:  elongated.

and even in textiles.

So much to love.


 Visit our showroom to view the possibilities in tile + stone.

All In Good Taste

April 30th, 2013

We must say, the designers over at h2k Design in Stanwood have excellent taste!

[And we’re only slightly biased.]

This beautiful installation showcases our W AGE porcelain in Cortex [floor], and our

Murano Vena Glass in Tortoise [backsplash].

A perfect background for such a gorgeous setting!

Kudos to interior designer Louise Brooks, who created an inspiring

kitchen design using Alumillenium Brushed tiles in 2×8 + 2×2.

We’re loving the soothing palette, her understated use of white

and silver.  So simple, yet so effective…

That the tile is composed entirely of recycled aluminum

is just an added bonus.

Get yours here.

Though glass tile typically conjures up visions of more contemporary design, we’re true fans when it’s used in a timeless way. 

Allison Hennessey won us over with her back splash installation showcased in the latest issue of Trad Home.

 To achieve a similar look, use our AK Clear 3×12 glass in Taupe.

Sometimes simple is just better.
