Pop down to The Conran Shop on Fulham Road before the end of August to see Bert & May’s new ‘Azure Blues’ collection of geometric and new blue tiles, based on antique designs and inspired by summer terraces on the French Riviera.
The three new tiles, based on antique Bert & May tile designs are: Lapis, Churriana and Majadas. The new blues include a blue developed in collaboration with The Conran Shop, called Azure Blue. This, and three others, inspired by the water (Navy, Sea, and Lake) were developed using traditional techniques to find the perfect combination of pigments, and to achieve the aged patina of the original tiles.
Bert & May design new tile collections inspired by antique encaustic patterns, as well as providing bespoke tile designs for individual projects and trade customers. They can also reproduce any antique tile in the amount you need. Their sister company The Reclaimed Tile Company supplies wonderful antique tiles and wooden flooring.
