A New Barbara Bestor Project Using Granada Tile’s Fez Cement Tiles in C Magazine

C mag  pg 125 July 2015

It’s no secret that we here at Granada Tile love architect Barbara Bestor.  Bestor feels the same way about us and about our concrete tiles, especially our Fez encaustic tile design which she first used in Los Angeles coffee shop, Silver Lake’s Intelligentsia Coffee, still one of the most Instagrammed spots in Los Angeles.  In a new project, for photographer Dewey Nicks and his wife Stephanie, beautifully photographed by Dewey for this month’s C Magazine, Granada Tile’s Fez cement tiles from our Echo Collection covers the floor of  the master bathroom in their Carpenteria home to stunning effect.  Amplifying the concrete tile’s bright blue, matching vanities in a complementary hue.

“We wanted to be able to take bicycles, paddleboards and kayaks in and out of the house—to have a place that sand could come into—so, almost like a garage,” says Dewey.  No wonder Bestor chose our concrete tile.  The hardy durable material with the feel of silk can stand up to whatever life — and a surf-loving family — can throw at it and come out looking beautiful. Now wonder Bestor uses it for so many projects — like Intelligentsia and Hollywood’s Beachwood Cafe — that see a lot of wear and tear.

Granada Tile Cement Tile In Bestia, Los Angeles’s Hottest Restaurant

LaRochelle-Restaurant-Bestia2

We finally got a peek at Bestia, the hottest restaurant in Los Angeles.  The amazing house-made charcuterie, home-made pastas and hearty meat-centric dishes which find their way out of the kitchen of chef Ori Menashe have found fans since the restaurant opened its doors just two years ago.  The place is packed and even with a reservation, we found ourselves cooling our heels on the patio, drink in hand, waiting to be seated.  Lucky for us! Looking down, there was our beautiful La Rochelle cement tile brightening up the well-populated space and bringing a touch of color and pattern to this funky warehouse district spot.  Though the concrete tile has seen plenty of wear and tear from anxious diners pacing back and forth, wondering if their table is ready yet, the beauty of encaustic tile is its ability to retain its sparkle over time.
