Chelsea Market: What's not to love?

What's not to love? Well, the original bathrooms, for sure. Until last month, that is, when "The Cellar" addition officially opened. The 6 million annual visitors to this 1890's Oreo cookie factory will now be getting a little relief...

Tile Style: Beveled Subway Tile

If you love subway tile, but are looking for something a bit more dramatic, consider beveled subway tile. The raised texture makes a visually compelling statement, making subway tile look ordinary in comparison. First used in the Paris Metro in 1890 to provide light in dim subway tunnels, the iconic beveled 3"x 6" tiles continue to illuminate and impress.

Our Historic Bungalow Tile Glazes

Bungalows are a type of residential architecture that was popular across American between 1890 and 1940. Its origins can be traced to the Indian province of Bengal, where the British adapted the native thatch roofs into homes for administrators and as summer retreats. The word Bungalow stems from the Hindi word "bangala," which literally means "in the Bengal style" and refers to a low, thatched house.
