Favorite thing about Fireclay: The beautiful handmade nature of our tile, especially our new Handpainted Collections.

Tile designer and ceramist Susanne Kibak Redfield merges her Danish roots and love of traditional crafts with a modern sense of restraint that brings just enough to the design without going over the top. After graduating from the University of California Santa Cruz in 1981, Susanne started her own business making ceramic tiles. She introduced Kibak Tile through Kneedler Fauchere, a revered interior showroom to the trade, then spent twenty five years in a successful relationship with Ann Sacks. "I began hearing about Fireclay Tile, their sustainable story and youthful energy really captured my imagination, I absolutely wanted to be part a company that really cares about tomorrow. Designing product for Fireclay Tile is energizing, truly inspirational.


Color Spotlight: Chartreuse + Cyclone

Our tile colors Cyclone and Chartreuse

Chartreuse is not a color for the faint of heart.  Appropriately named after its resemblance to the green tinged French liqueur made by the Carthusian Monks, this yellowish-green hue is bold, its bright, and it demands attention.  So how do you make chartreuse stand out without feeling outlandish?  Try pairing the bright hue with a muted neutral color palate.  One of our favorite combinations is Chartreuse and a smokey charcoal gray such as our color, Cyclone.

Chartreuse creates a modern, fresh look when used sparingly.  Against a gray, neutral background a small pop of this playful hue is just enough to create a dramatic visual impact.  As shown in the kitchen above, balance is key–the neutral color scheme allows the Chartreuse to shine, while toning it down to a manageable level.  Want to tone it down even more?  Try adding other neutrals and textures to the space such as whites, warm woods, concrete and stainless steel.

When desiging with our tile, we suggest using Cyclone as your main hue, while adding splashes of Chartreuse as an accent color.  Consider Cyclone floors and a Chartreuse accent wall or backsplash.  A pop of chartreuse would also look great along your window trim.  The yellowish-green tint will draw in the green of the outdoors, and will become the focal point among an otherwise neutral interior.
