"We create tiles in collaboration with individual artists and with artisans from around the world. We are perpetually on the lookout for new finishes and it often takes at least a good year (or more) to bring a line to market . We were the first to really promote the Moroccan tile, zellige in the US. It took a while for people to embrace the imperfections but now it is one of the hottest items we sell."
We do not recommend installing cement tile outdoors in places that experience extreme frost and freeze in winter. Cement tiles are also unable to withstand the weight of vehicles and therefore should never be used in driveways. Wall tiles can be affixed to plaster, drywall, cement block, and cement backer board. The installation surface should be flat and dry with any loose paint removed and cracked surfaces patched prior to installing cement tiles.
One of the most classic cement tile designs is the intricate floral or Moorish pattern. This look dates back to the early 20th century and is just as popular today. The options for this type of traditional pattern are endless, ranging from colorful and bright to serene and neutral. Depending on the style of your home, you can add a unique flair to your kitchen with backsplash cement tile.
The Monsieur encaustic tile brings the chic French style of bold patterns and soft lines to your home’s walls and floors. A grey and black outline accentuates the unique arabesque shape, ensuring that this tile stands out wherever it’s used. The perfect complement to the black Mademoiselle arabesque tile, pair them together for a bold checkerboard effect.
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.
Being situated in the building right next to the John Varvatos store and across the street from glitzy Italian restaurant Cecconi’s (just south of Melrose & Robertson), the company’s new showroom can certainly be considered prime real estate. Not only is it quite a bit easier to find, but it has more square footage and wall space than its predecessor, allowing for more sample board displays. For close to 20 years the space was home to Trigg Ison Fine Art, one of West Hollywood’s top art galleries.
clé celebrates this historic cement tile with our own modern take on a 150 year old tile crafting legacy. each encaustic cement tile is painstakingly hand crafted, one tile at a time, to create solid or patterned tiles formed from pigmented cement. the tiles are not fired in a kiln, but are cured in water for a lasting cement surface that is as stunning in its finish as it is good for the environment.
Proper installation and protection of cement tile is key to enjoying its lasting beauty. Please ensure that tile is laid by a licensed tile installer. Encaustic cement tiles are installed in both commercial and residential environments, from restaurants and retail stores to kitchens, bathrooms, shower walls, shower floors, patios, and living areas.
