Thanks to Ryan and the fab crew at Ciao! for interviewing me on the blog yesterday! Click below to check out the site’s groovy new redesign, learn how shopping for tile can be like mail-ordering a spouse (not in a good way), and to read part one of the interview…
Last month, Ceramic Tiles of Italy invited me to give a presentation on tile trends at Taliesen West * (thanks guys!). Among the friendly group of Phoenix-area design professionals and students who attended was Richard van Gilse of local showroom Facings of America, who ran over to tell me how excited he was that I’d enthused about hexagonal tiles, one of my new obsessions. Turns out that Richard is a fellow hex addict who a few years ago launched a proprietary collection of groovy six-sided pavers that are amazing! Check ‘em out here.
In limestone or travertine, the tiles are offered in 15-, 20-, and 30-inch formats. Gorgeous.
[* FYI, Taliesen's Mod.Fab project--which features tiles by Etruria, Floorgres, and Edilcuoghi--was a recent Ceramic Tiles of Italy competition award winner! Congrats! And thanks for the tour...]
