If you've seen some drop dead gorgeous patterned tiles on Pinterest lately, there's a good chance they are made of cement. These matte-finish, often bold patterned tiles are absolutely beautiful. Historically more common throughout Europe than here, they've gathered major steam on this side of the pond. After days and weeks of scouring the internet looking for the perfect tile for our bathroom renovation, and not finding anything that was just right, late one night I finally found The One in a photo of a dreamy bathroom.
We offer a very full selection of tile flooring, wall, backsplash, accents, trim pieces, tile moldings, and tile accessories in assorted shapes, designs, materials, and textures. Materials range from ceramic, porcelain, and glass tiles for a bathroom, shower, or powder room, subway tile and mosaics for a kitchen backsplash, cement, concrete, and wood plank look for floors, terra cotta and Saltillo for patios, and Spanish Revival, Early California, and Malibu-type tile to complete a staircase, fireplace, fountain, or pool.
With our Euro partner, Mosaico, we provided the tile for this London England UK kitchen and outdoor terrace. We love the clean, crisp look and how the small kitchen is made so much larger by the extension of the matching outdoor terrace. The client wrote, "We love the tiles so much...You can see we have bi-folding doors that lead into the external courtyard area... in the spring and summertime it really open up our little kitchen. We are very pleased with the result."
this has been a constant theme at clé. and recently, we’ve been asking ourselves this question, not just in the way we select our products, support our artists, work with our clients and engage with our team mates. but we’ve also been asking ourselves the bigger question- how can we make a difference every day for one another, in our communities and in our world.
This MeaLu 8" x 8" Cement Field Tile in White/Gold transform spaces into works of art. Reminiscent of century-old encaustic tiles, cement tiles have been handcrafted by artisans for decades. The designs and colors create a beautiful and durable surface that is more aesthetically appealing than basic cement or drywall, and more durable and eco-friendly than wood or laminate flooring. Concrete tile patterns add too many design styles including Spanish style home decor, Hacienda, Spanish Colonial...
Just eight months after opening its location on Almont Drive in West Hollywood, the high-end tile company LE MOSAISTE decides to take advantage of a vacancy on nearby Robertson Boulevard to move its showroom. The purpose of the move is clear: added visibility and closer proximity to the Pacific Design Center. “We think the new space will allow us to serve the local design community more effectively”, says co-founder Faissel Farhi.
They went to France to learn the technique then came back and set up shop in Grenada, starting a factory that makes the eco-friendly, sensational cement tiles. "Not only are these handmade cement tiles strong, durable and scratch and stain resistant, they have a vintage beauty that can be very versatile," says Marcos. "The tiles’ bold patterns and dynamic colors can look just as beautiful in a historic mansion as in a new loft."
if clé cement tiles are pre-polished and pre-sealed, why do I have to use a grout release? clé is pleased to offer cement tiles that are pre-polished and pre-sealed. if you have witnessed the difference in cement tiles without this hand-rubbed finish, you know that clé cement tiles’ smooth finish helps our tiles through transportation blemishes and the first stages of installation care. HOWEVER, grouts are very problematic to cement tiles and taking extra care against staining is essential to success. please be sure to ALWAYS use grout release.
While hardly a modern material, encaustic tiles are very popular in the home decorating and interior design world. Homeowners of all tastes are turning towards tiles, specifically cement tiles, for their unique patterns, vivid colors, and practical qualities. If you’ve been looking into this endearing material, you may have come across varying terms and descriptions, and some confusion over what you’re actually looking for. Some sources describe encaustic cement tiles, and others say cement tiles aren’t actually encaustic. So which is it?
The craftsman house involved in the project is over 100 years old. It’s a brown shingle craftsman very typical of the local homes and the owners are bringing it back to life little by little. The owners are both wonderful cooks (she’s French so of course!) and spend a lot of time in their well-used kitchen. The home was updated sometime in the 80’s and was ready for a serious face-lift. The clients wanted to incorporate a French/Moroccan style with the architectural elements of a craftsman. We think they succeeded!
in 2009 when artist and designer, deborah osburn began her blog, ‘tile envy’, she did so because no one else was talking about tile at the time. ‘tile envy’ quickly garnered an avid following and when readers started to ask how to source the unique artisan tiles she was featuring, deborah found herself launching an online tile shop in 2012 aptly named clé (pronounced 'clay') tile. selling tiles solely online seemed audacious at a time when tile stores were still deeply rooted in the showroom experience, however, architects, designers and design-savvy customers proved they were happy to have access to a wider array of decorative tiles and the online boutique took off.
we recommend using our unglazed tile grout. our timberwolf is natural grey in color and has the least amount of pigment. steer clear of permacolor grouts that will stain the tile. ideally tile spacing should be set at 1/16 inch - as tight as possible - to keep the pattern flow. for any cement tile we always recommend miracle's 511 porous plus as a sealant.
Backsplash tiles are usually small to medium sized tiles and can be ceramic, porcelain or cement. They are meant to provide a water-resistant and durable barrier between the wall of the kitchen and all of the messes from cooking. Backsplash tiles help to prevent staining and water damage on the wall, and provide a stylistic touch with the nearly unlimited amount of colors, sizes, shapes, and patterns to choose from.
LE MOSAISTE teamed up with interior designer and new neighbor Paul L’Esperance (www.lesperancedesign.com), best known for his award-winning work on the 22 million dollar restoration of The Leland Stanford Mansion. The joint effort took the design of the new showroom into a direction that complements the elegant and organic qualities of the company’s artisan zellige tiles. The idea behind the décor was to pay tribute to the origin of the tiles while hinting at their versatility. The term that comes to mind is “Moroccan modern”.
why do you caution against using permacolor grouts? Permacolor grouts are the newest iteration of grout development. it’s really great for color-fast qualities, however everything that makes it color fast is a demon to your beautiful cement tiles. first, the grout is colored with more intense pigments that will stain any unglazed stone, cement or unglazed tile. second, it is fast drying and less viscous than standard grouts and therefore there is a greater possibility of leaving a grout film. should grout film develop on your installation, it is generally irreparable.
Items that state "ships within 10-12 weeks" are made to order, with the 10-12 weeks being the production time. We are not able to expedite the production time as each tile is produced by hand one at a time and then requires time to fully cure so they do not break while in transit. After this 10- 12 week period the order will ship from our warehouse and transit time should be 1-7 business days.
If you’re looking for an easy and cost-effective way to update or refresh one of the rooms in your home, backsplash tile is a great option. Backsplash tiles offer the perfect pop of color, texture and pattern while adding to the functionality of the kitchen, by protecting the walls from splashes and stains. It’s a small enough area that it won’t overwhelm the space, but it makes a big impact on the entire kitchen.
It starts with installation, he said. "It's really inconsistent in size and that makes installation take longer because you're trying to make up for the size difference. It's not symmetrical in any way, shape, or form." When it comes to grouting, even with using sealing products to prevent issues, "Oh my goodness it's a pain—it's so porous, it sucks the pigment of the grout in and it's hard to get it off," he said.
we continue to expand our offerings and this year, 2018, is no exception with the launch of over twenty new products. we continue to collaborate and create artisan and designer tiles but we are also digging deep and exploring a myriad of surface materials beyond the world of clay-based products. although clé began solely as an online tile store, six years in, we are opening a studio, showroom and a guild where we will teach young artists how to create artful tile and take the craft to a whole new level.

**So glad** you mentioned Villa Lagoon! Lundy (the most gorgeous, both in body and heart), the owner, helped me with our laundry room (now changing room) project eight years ago. I wanted a colorful crazy quilt and Lundy definitely ensured I got what I wanted, including a good mix of black to help ground the pattern(s). I did investigate Popham but back then they were still only in Morocco, not yet in the US with Ann Sacks, and, while lovely, they were (are?) a bit more mod than I wanted (although I do like their Rings) and MUCH more $$$ than Villa Lagoon.
The Erica Tanov exclusive collaboration with Clé Tile is a modern take on an historic tile that, over the past 150 years, has been referred to by dozens of names including encaustic cement tiles, concrete tiles, hydraulicos, and cuban tiles. These alluring objects have stood the test of time and have echoed their beauty across many continents. Clé creates one of the finest cement tiles in the world, and this quality still permeates a surface which is muted, varied, matte and silky. Cement tiles' characteristically variegated colors make them one of today's most sought-after tiles for both walls and floors, indoors and out.
Since it is just not cement, a concrete tile offers various features like durability, easier cleaning and maintenance. With regular cleaning, it is fairly easy to maintain the durability. It is recommended to use clean water and microfiber mop each time. You can mix water with neutral cleansers to avoid abrasion of the tile. For long-term maintenance, it is better to invest in resealing of the tiles when it is required.
While you’re putting cement tile on the walls, don’t forget about the laundry room! Beautiful laundry rooms are not just for the people of Pinterest (or Jamie and Morgan in our video about installing Erizo Blue cement tile, which you can see on our Installation page. Jamie and Morgan used Erizo Blue cement tile as their pop of color!). You could use our cement tile as a lovely accent behind your laundry room sink and washer/dryer: an unexpected statement piece to liven what, in most homes, is a very boring room.
On the recommendation of the flooring guy at Lowe’s, I bought this sealer. He and I actually had a bit of a difference of opinion. He thought the cement tile was already sealed. I felt pretty certain that it was not. I am glad that I went with my gut because the cement tile backsplash sucked up the sealer like nobody’s business. It took four layers before the tile stopped soaking up the sealer like a desert reptile soaks up rain. (Novice tip: If you have unsealed tile, sealing it prior to grouting is important. The pigment in colored grout can stain unsealed tile.)
Are you ready to begin designing your kitchen refresh and want to choose your cement backsplash tiles? You’ll see that our Echo, Minis, and Andalucia Collections are most recommended for backsplashes. If you see something that you love but you’d like a different color, we can help you personalize the concrete backsplash tiles. And if you have a completely different design you don’t see on our website, our sales team will work with you to create your own custom backsplash tile!
Many homeowners prefer subdued neutral tones in their kitchen, to ensure that it will remain beautiful and up-to-date for a long time. However, neutral colors don’t have to mean plain and boring; you can choose a cement backsplash tile pattern in a neutral tone, like off-white or gray, and enjoy a unique pattern and texture without overwhelming the space with bright colors.
pink has gone crazy at clé. mostly because it's going through the roof, everywhere. it is the season for shades of pink and red afterall (valentine's day). we were compelled to create a pink pinboard and found that once we started our pinboard, there was nooooooo turning back- today a peek at our "pin-k board" and some of our favorite shades of pink and red zellige tiles...
If you are remodeling your kitchen and want to get rid of the old tiles without much effort, it is better to invest an overlay. The overlay tiles can easily cover up the old tiles and make your kitchen look brand new. The concrete tile overlay can be a good option to resist damage from salt, chemicals, UV exposure, and abrasion. There is not lack of colors and patterns you want to choose from.

Capture the beauty of authentic, traditional cement tiles with the Ciment Artea 7.88" x 7.88" Cement Field Tile. These tiles are constructed of cement, offering a partial through-body coloring. Each tile is hand-crafted by taking a 1” cement base, pouring color into a mold, pressing the color with a hydraulic press and then allowing it to cure for a number of days. The result is a completely one of a kind look that may produce natural variations or chips, which are characteristics of true...

Yes! This is awesome…I had such a hard time finding good cement tiles when I was looking last year! I ended up going with some black and white patterned tiles from Overstock for our fireplace and a small backsplash behind our range. I liked the tiles I picked, but honestly it was the free shipping that sold me – when I priced tiles from other suppliers, the shipping was more than the actual tiles.
If you’re looking for a bold-floor look that is sure to be the focus of any room, encaustic tile is a perfect choice. These artistic tiles are made by dying cement tiles with two or more colors using mineral pigments and a mold, creating a beautiful and colorful design. Encaustic tile has a rich history, having been around since medieval times and reaching their height in the 1700–1800s when the tiles were able to be mass produced and became available to the general public. England, which was the historic center of production, still has the greatest amount of encaustic tile floors. When placed together on a floor, encaustic tiles create a repeating pattern that pairs perfectly with neutral wall colors. This look blends old-world style with modern colors and patterns into one unique and timeless tile.
I have to admit I chuckled a little hearing that it’s national ceramic tile day. Is there anything without a national day? This post is an absolute godsend. There’s about 10 different placed in my home that I want to add ceramic tile to. We have a midcentury raised ranch that is so cookie-cutter-vanilla-suburbia it makes me want to cry. I need to add some (appropriate) spice to this house ASAP!
as we move into 2017 we wanted to pause to appreciate what an amazing year 2016 has been for clé. we launched a new website, won an interior design best of year award, grew our team (we are now a whopping 20 people), and worked with so many wonderful and talented clients. even though it is quite fitting that a zany encaustic cement tile would be our biggest seller (let's be honest... 2016 was pretty crazy), it has been a wonderful year for clé. so cheers to you and 2016!
