The patterns and colours in the Chateaux range were inspired by an eclectic range of artifacts and places: ceramics and tiles from ancient Persia and Morocco, kelim rugs from Turkey, tapestries from French castles and pottery from Andalusia. If you look closely you will discover that every tile is slightly different. Intriguing random textured effects result from the deliberate use of glazes that ‘react’ on the surface. The combination of a rustic tile base and the reactive glazes produces glossy tiles that have noticeably textured surfaces. Weave these patterns together to make a beautifully rich and textured feature – a dazzlingly simple way to add character and style to a wall. The Chateaux tiles shown are different patterns in blue on either a Cosmopolitan Papyrus or Truffle background. They can be used to create stylish patchwork effects or placed individually.
