Curated Elegance, A Three-fold Collection by Walker Zanger

Posted on June 11th, 2019

           We are pleased to welcome three new Walker Zanger collections to our South Granville showroom. Curated Elegance is a series of exclusive stone tiles that take natural stone to a new level of grandeur, utilizing colours that work in gracious harmony to deliver a sophisticated design experience.

“Natural stone is one of the earth’s few gifts that artisans can skillfully call our attention to through superior craftsmanship” – Walker Zanger

Whether you seek the geometric serenity of Studio Moderne Stone, the contemporary nostalgia of Fragmenta Terrazzo, or the universal opulence of Marble Luxe, this series will energize and unify your designs as ancient craft techniques are revived into modern styles with beautifully natural colours.


Studio Moderne Stone

Designed exclusively for Walker Zanger by noted interior designer, Michael Berman, this revitalized collection offers a fresh take on dimensional marble tiles and mid-scale mosaics. Keeping in the theme of large format and architectural designs, the patterns and shapes are elevated by stones of grey, blue, and brown. Inspired by Hollywood Regency, Art Deco, and Classic Modernism, the bold architectural designs of Studio Moderne Stone transcend the boundaries of the kitchen and bathroom.


Marble Luxe

A superior decorative material for millennia, marble is the discerning choice for residential, retail, and commercial design. Cut from large blocks usually reserved for slabs, Marble Luxe offers the highest grade of each type of stone in the collection, in a premium size (18” x 36”) and minimal thickness (3/8”) for easier installation. A particular standout is the Turquoise Luxe, with its truly unique green-blue colour.


Fragmenta Terrazzo

The beautiful story of terrazzo dates back to early Greek and Egyptian times. The ancient art of combining marble fragments and cement reached the height of its glory in 16th and 17th century Venice, and found a resurgence in popularity in the 1930’s and 40’s. Today, terrazzo is once again enjoying a renewed admiration, rightfully earning a place amongst classic design.

Walker Zanger has partnered with one of Italy’s oldest family-owned terrazzo makers, offering the highest quality while masterfully balancing ancient craft techniques with modern production processes. The end result is two colour-ways offered in one large format (24” x 24” x 3/8”) size.

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

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.
