glazed and confused?

clé introduces our new modern take on the historic cement tile.

Posted on Thu, Jul 16, 2015

it's rare to find a tile with as much versatility and design flexibility as cement tiles. they can be specified for nearly any and every tile project.

(coppola's enchanting palazzo margherita, story here)

but perhaps the single most significant item of interest about these tiles is that even though they appear to be a new interior fashion find, cement tiles have actually been a classic tile feature in other countries for over 150 years.

that's a long time to study the capabilities from both the design and the functional perspectives of a surface. if you've ever traveled abroad, the chances are good that cement tiles have been a part of your favorite architectural setting. and today, it is still a prized surface used by the most discerning and creative design professionals.
