Northmore Sable Black

Just last year we launched our beautiful new Northmore collection– stunning encaustic inspired tiles in a range of deep tones and soft neutrals. Northmore Sable Black seen here is a heritage soft black with an aged patina – an extremely practical colourway that is ideal for high traffic areas, such as lobbies and hallways. The unique decorative pattern reflects that of mid-19th century design, which has been reinterpreted to meet the demands of modern-day living. This versatile style means that Northmore looks equally as beautiful in a traditional country home as a contemporary city apartment. The detailed design softens the monochrome palette, adding an authentic touch.

Dovetail Ink Black

Dovetail Ink Black is one of our most popular tiles from this iconic collection, designed by Neisha Crosland – it always looks modern and chic. The geometric shapes and sharp contrast make for a statement look that is also timeless, so will evolve with your decor as your interior style changes. We love how it has been paired with this on-trend sage green kitchen with brass hardware, giving a clean and fresh aesthetic to this bright space. Alternatively, we’ve also seen customers use this design in areas such as hallways and alongside our MSeries woods. In fact, Dovetail can be laid to create zones within a room that works great in open-plan kitchen-diners and is a form of broken-plan living, something we are seeing become increasingly popular. As our demands for spaces change and adapt due to our working and family life, many rooms now accommodate multifunctional living such as working from home from your kitchen table. Our floors are also really easy to clean and care for, making them a practical choice that will look great for years to come.

Heritage Colours

Heritage Colours Squares feature a gentle micro-bevelled edge which creates subtle definition. Featured here in Linen White and Stove Black, they are mostly installed to create a timeless checkerboard pattern. These durable floor tiles suit both classic and modern interior styles. Many of our customers opt for this look in kitchens and entrance-ways to create an eye-catching aesthetic, however here we love how they have been used to transform this bathroom to create a sense of space and light. Style with soft neutrals, natural lighting, foliage and bold feature roll-top baths for a contemporary twist on traditional interiors. This is an effective way to create a contemporary aesthetic that still has a nod to retro design.

Parquet Charcoal

Parquet Charcoal features in another geometric-inspired collection from celebrated UK designer Neisha Crosland. A popular choice for all areas of the home, easily blending with your interior style. These tiles also work brilliantly in office spaces, making them perfect for refreshing for your teams to return to the workplace or to transform a nook of your home into a unique dedicated home office space. We love using pops of colour and textures to style this floor.
