Stop the Presses, New Jeffrey Court Now in Store!

Posted on February 19th, 2019

 

Chapter 14, The Press, the newest collection from our California tile company, Jeffrey Court is now in our South Granville showroom. As the name suggests, The Press draws inspiration from the great American newsrooms of the early 20th century. The foundational element of this collection is its 5/8” hexagon – reminiscent of a single dot of ink on a page. By using this shape, The Press is able to recreate patterns and designs congruent with architecture and schemes often found in entry ways, thresholds, and floors of shops and businesses of the time.

The Press includes 4 repeating mosaic patterns appropriately named Herald, Tribune, Daily, and Union and come in 13.125” X 15.375” sheets. This chapter takes the time and necessary patience out of the tile setting process by recreating popular styles and patterns that would otherwise be tedious and time consuming. Four solid colours, black, white, grey, and navy, the foundational colours found in print, round out this collection and are available in 12” x 12.25” sheets.

Unlike ceramic tile that was often used in the early 1900’s, The Press uses a special pressing and firing process similar to porcelain to create these small but robust glass hexagons. The end result is an ultra-smooth, full-bodied, frosted finish. The durability of this chapter makes it suitable for any wall or floor installation.

Custom Terracotta Staircase in Western Living

Posted on January 22nd, 2019

 

Our latest editorial in this month’s Western Living is a beautiful example of thoughtful design in an area that is often overlooked, the staircase. Designer Ami McKay of Pure Design chose a custom pattern from our terracotta specialist, Tabarka to elevate her client’s stair risers. In a house of bright whites and plenty of natural light, this stunning tile pops with its subtle design lending Spanish flare to this family’s home.
