Live at #NeoCon10: Artistic Tile causes lasting Treble
Believe it or not, tile design can be as trendy as permed bangs. As someone who understood that the hideous color combination on the tiles of our bathroom was all wrong (before I found out that my rolled up Girbaud jeans had become uncool) I knew that there was such a thing as interior trends from a very young age. Speaking of the latest trends in design, the synergy of Artistic Tile's glass mosaic line they call Treble debuted last week at the amazing NeoCon show.

Falling under the company's highly-successful Jazz Glass collection, it was "inspired by Jazz musicians, who passionately blend and shape notes of music, each piece of domestic glass in this mosaic pattern is hand-made and lovingly shaped by a skilled craftsman." Beautiful indeed, the wide-faced, diamond-shaped tiles come in five color combinations: Bourbon Street Caramel, Coltrane Cream, Dizzy Plum, Fats Brown, and Mingus Grey. Each tile is just 10-1/4"³ Ã— 12-1/4"³ Ã— 5/16" and comes as a mesh-mounted mosaic, also known as the indirect method, with interlocking pieces that allow for easy installation on interior or exterior walls and floors.
The founder of Artistic Tile, Nancy Epstein, began her adventure in tile after challenging a cabinet maker who was working on her house. To his dismay, she ordered the specs to her preference even after he told said it wouldn't work. Soon after the project was finished and looking incredible, she was asked to work at his showroom to focus on tile, stone, fixtures and fittings. A few years later, in the late 1980s, she branched off to focus on her very own tile company that has become the well-known Artistic Tile company that is now headquartered in a 110,000 square foot building in New Jersey. Although the tiles toot their own horns, their projects have been given "Best of..." awards from numerous design and shelter magazines, as well as being featured on both CNBC and NBC's Today Show.
If they're anything like Dizzy and the other guys naming the Treble line, the powerful (but silent) styles of Artistic Tile will triumphantly hold their note for decades to come.
