For months, we’ve been collaborating with Bert & May to create the Arch Collection of encaustic tiles, and we couldn’t be more pleased with the finished result. Graphic patterns in clean, architectural lines and soft, richly pigmented colours, it’s our contemporary take on the Mediterranean holiday vibe we’ve all been yearning for, a sunny dose of style that lasts all year round.
We think they’re truly versatile. The way you can join the caps to create circles, or rows of semi circles, or just place one individually at random like a little setting sun means you can create a unique aesthetic - the columns can become a datum line or vertical stripes at will. Use them in kitchens or bathrooms, as hallway floors or below the picture rail in a living room, there is an appealing chalkiness to them which creates a washed-out appearance. Their blend of natural pigments, cement, sand and marble is mixed to create a fine, loose powder, which also means they have a ‘perfectly imperfect’ finish, softening the edges of your home.
The muted palette only adds to how easy they are to decorate with. Tans, terracottas and burnt orange tones are warm and dusky, while greyed whites and forest greens evoke summers on the terrace. They have a timelessness to them which only gets better with age, and we can’t wait to see what you do with them.
