about this collection

the architect's palette is an edited collection of elongated planks of terracotta tile. coated in a silky matte finish these hand-hewn tiles are made of traditional, rustic Italian clay and are available in four architect-honed hues.

the traditional "listello" shape was typically used in italy as a border, but this elongated form is now being used as a field tile. it's linear form is easily converted to an elevated herringbone, stack, and subway pattern and can be used on walls, wet spaces, and floors with low traffic. over time the tile can develop a crackled patina typical of time-worn italian tile.

faq

How much variation should I expect?

With Architect’s Palette you will see a slight textural variation but no color variation in the glaze. They fall under the definition of V1 T2 in our Tile Variation Guide which states:

Color Variation-

V1: no variation. a small percentage of the types of tiles that we carry will exhibit no variation within the same production lots. an example of this is our white gloss subway tile, which is machine-made and results in a consistent look from tile to tile.

Texture Variation-

T2: light texture: production will result in slight physical variation in the surfaces of the tiles. overall there will be uniformity upon installation.

Where do you recommend installing Architect’s Palette?

Architect’s Palette is great for almost any application and downright perfect for a kitchen backsplash, shower walls, fireplace exteriors, feature wall, powder room, entry hall, etc... Please limit floor usage to light residential and outdoor use to locations not affected by freeze thaw.

What color grout should I use?

We recommend Mapei’s Ultracolor Plus FA in the shade Timberwolf. You may use lighter or darker grout colors based on your projects needs.

What size grout joint should I use?

At clé, we like to always recommend the smallest grout joint possible for a tile installation. With that in mind, we like to suggest 1/4" grout joint for our Architect's Palette collection. But, there are those who might prefer a larger joint size for a more pronounced texture on certain pattern designs, such as herringbone.

Do I need to seal Architect’s Palette tiles?

For the majority of applications, Architect’s Palette tile does not need to be sealed.

Do you have additional installation information?

Installation methods should conform to the tile council of america “Handbook for Ceramic Tile Installation” (current edition). Tiles from several different cartons should be mixed to achieve the best overall blend. Other systems are available and the manufacturer’s recommendations should be followed.
