Recycled Tile from Urban Archeology
Reading my March issue of Interior Design I turned to page S26 and WOW…I was completely blown away by what I saw. Do these tiles really exist? I read the text, jumped on my bike and head down to Urban Archaeology, which is all of about four minutes on my bike from my office.
In the store, I went up the stairs to the tile section I was standing bewildered holding the samples. They are beyond gorgeous. They feel more like resin than actual marble, which makes a lot of sense especially after trying to figure out where one would quarry bright orange marble. These tiles are made from a mixute of materials, one of which happens to be marble. Not appropriate for wet conditions, these tiles are more appropriate for cladding walls where you need some texture or color.
