Like terracotta? You'll love this. Applied to our super durable Recycled Clay Tile Body, our Antique glaze is a forever favorite. Antique brings to mind terracotta rooftops, cobbled streets and weathered clay floors; its earthy brown hue makes it the perfect rustic detail to add to your space. We're sharing design inspiration below, but if you'd like more ideas, head to our Pinterest Board.


Antique is a V4 glaze, meaning that it has the most color variation (we love this about this color, read more about variation here and here). The textured finish of this glaze makes it ideal for tile floors. From the kitchen to your bathroom, this color boasts a traditional look that you'll always love.

This neutral can also be paired with other colors too. We like the idea of installing Antique within a blend of other warm tones like this bathroom below:

Bay Area interior designer Kristen Peña chose our floor tile in Antique and Glazed Thin Brick for the shower as a foundation for this bathroom's rustic design elements.

Pattern can be a beautiful way to highlight the high level of color variation this glaze has. We love the idea of installing Antique in our Star and Cross shape:

Because this glaze is on our Recycled Clay Body, it's very durable and can stand up to the toughest jobs. From mud rooms to entryways, this glaze will have you covered.
