I am in New York at ICFF where we are officially officially launching the tile collection I designed for Concrete Collaborative today!! It has been over a year in the making, I finalized the patterns in March of last year and the first production test run went right to install at the creative studio and event space of my friends at “Festoon“!
I was thrilled to create this series of five for Concrete Collaborative (1, 2, 3, 4, 5). With crisp patterns and clean lines, Concrete Collaborative’s tiles are crafted using careful consistency and superior design. I have seen A LOT of cement tiles in my day and the quality is all over the map. CC’s quality really stands out and they are made locally in California so it was a no brainer.
The tiles are ideal for both interior and exterior applications. My series of five consists of linear designs which can be combined and arranged to create endless pattern opportunities.
And speaking of ALL those different pattern options that you can create, I’ve illustrated a few of my favorites below.
The curve of the arch my be my favorite but the stripes are modern and classic at the same time.
The single line design creates patterns that are reminiscent of subway tile but with all the character and beautiful tonality of the encaustic tile, it is a major upgrade. A modern version of a traditional staple.
Above are all ideas using just one tile from the series but the best part is when you mix and match the different designs to create repeat patterns or larger motifs that can read more as a mural. Here are a few utilizing the series to help get your creativity flowing with all the options.
I can’t wait to see these in some of your homes. #sssxconcretecollaborative.
