Encaustic Tile

Graphic and decorative floors are making a comeback - especially encaustic tiles.  They were frequently found in the Victorian era and are made by combining a variety of different colours of clay in a pattern to form a single tile. The result is pattern and colour within a tile that will not wear down over time as it's intrinsic to the tiles make-up. I love the juxtaposition of this traditional architectural feature paired with modern furnishings.

And if you can't find the design/colour you are looking for, well you could always do as Miles Redd has in the interior below - have a specialist painter paint it for you!

  1. Have a look at our French suppliers of these tiles: Carocim, often present at Maison & Objet and the south of France trade shows.


Comments are welcome - I read each and every one of them and love hearing your thoughts and ideas.
Thank you for taking the time to visit Canoe Design and I look forward to hearing from you.
