Granada Tile’s Fez Cement Tile in San Francisco Magazine

Granada Tile’s Fez cement tile in San Francisco Magazine

Ten years and counting, Fez cement tile is still inspiring great design. Arguably, it works as well in bohemian outdoor spaces as it does in modern bathrooms. Take for example, the modern bathroom in the March issue of San Francisco magazine. Smooth white walls, a circular window and sleek shower niches form a sophisticated pairing with Fez cement tile’s exuberant graphic pattern. Designed by Mason St. Peter, the look is decidedly modern while at the same time utterly timeless. Ultimately it will look as fresh in another decade from now as it does today. Fez cement tile in a modern bathroom by Mason St. Peter in San Francisco Magazing

Behind The Cement Tile: Fez

Where do we start to talk about the magic that is our Fez cement tile?  Since its splashy debut into the public’s consciousness eight years ago, courtesy of Los Angeles architect extraordinaire Barbara Bestor, at Silver Lake’s Intelligensia Cafe, one of the city’s most popular coffee shops, these concrete tiles, in our standard blue and white colorway, have captured the imagination of architects, designers and tastemakers from coast to coast.  The simple graphic look of these cement tiles is at once modern and exotic; this concrete tile design works just as well in a traditional setting as it does in a contemporary space.

This cement tile design comes from historic molds made of cast bronze that were purchased in the early days of Granada Tile’s existence.  Because of its classic Moroccan feel, we decided to christen this concrete tile design after that country’s pre-eminent city for artisans.  In blue and white, this cement tile pattern also bears a whiff of Greece and the Greek islands, bringing to mind that land’s ancient oceanside villages, the calming blue of the summer sea contrasting with the stark whitewashed homes.  Whatever warm land this cement tile evokes for you, here are some examples of how this cement tile pattern adapts to different spaces — kitchen backsplash tile, outdoor deck tile, bathroom floor tile, shower tiles, stair tile, patio tile — and shows off its hardworking, durable, modern and timeless qualities.

Before And After: Fez Cement Tile In Domaine Home

Celebrity hair stylist Jen Atkin created this amazing outdoor space to celebrate the launch of her new hair-centric site Mane Addicts.  Mat Sanders of Domaine Home and interior designer Brandon Quattrone, who also work together as Consort Design, transformed the generic outdoor roof deck, taking it from ho hum to oh wow!   Persian rugs, an abundance of cacti and heat-tolerant grasses, wood siding, inlaid chairs, brass colored side tables, striped throws and octagonal throws are just some of the elements that add up to an inviting look of this bohemian casual rooftop deck.  And tying everything together?  Why our blue and white Fez cement tiles, of course!  At once modern and exotic, these encaustic tiles bridge the old world and new world together perfectly.
