Our first launch this year was our Northmore collection. During the mid-19th century, encaustic floor tiles became increasingly popular, so with Northmore, we wanted to refresh this beautiful style of tile for the modern-day. Northmore blends heritage colour pigment and authentic patina, creating a collection that reinterprets prestigious Victorian robust and detailed tiles by refreshing them for the 21st century. Pictured below, Northmore Soapstone.
Our focus with the development of this collection was form, function, warmth and acoustics in order to create a design that looks equally as stunning in both traditional and contemporary interiors. The natural palette features seven colourways: Waterhouse Blue, Sable Black, Pembroke Slate, Soapstone, Mortar and the new Fired Terracotta.
Our second launch this year was in collaboration with celebrated UK designer Dee Hardwicke. This was our second collection collaboration named Pattern. Dee Hardwicke’s Pattern collection also reflects heritage encaustic design, adapted from original ceramic illustrations.
The Pattern collection captures the beauty of the natural world, inspired by the breathtaking landscapes surrounding Dee Hardwicke’s studio. “It’s a lovely way of being able to enjoy a little bit of the natural world whether you live in the city or the countryside” Dee Hardwicke, Designer.
The four colourways capture the essence of hand-painted Morrocan tiles: Ashen, Larkspur, Warm Terracotta and Meadow Green. This mixture of bold and neutral tones means Pattern can blend easily with either traditional or contemporary interior spaces. Pictured below, Pattern Larkspur.
