Social Media Maven

Shannon joined the team in 2013 as Fireclay's Social Media Maven. After graduating from the University of California Santa Cruz with a degree in Cultural Anthropology, Shannon pursued her lifelong passion for interior design by working as a freelance writer for Houzz. Her interest in design related content eventually led her to Fireclay where she gets to spend her day spreading the Fireclay word and help get tile to the people!

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

Creative Consultant

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: Add a Bolt of Color With Chartreuse

Design: Mission Cheese; Image: Oh Happy Day

They say everything you really need to know you learned in kindergarten...

I, for one, will not put up a strong argument.  I remember the very moment I fell for chartreuse, hard.  It was 1961 and I was in kindergarten.  The finger paints were out, bibs were on, and Mrs. Dragamoore was demonstrating how to mix yellow and green to come up with a magical color with an exotic, dream like name I had never heard uttered. Chartreuse.  It rolled off the tongue like a poem, especially to a little kid just learning to speak English.  I was in L O V E.

Fabric: Cutting Cloth; Show: Nordstrom

What’s not to love? Chartreuse is sophisticated, deliriously happy, a design choice that plays remarkably well with others.  White, cream, grey, navy,charcoal, turquoise, soft sky blue, even brown smartens up when chartreuse is in the house.

Colors shown: Tusk, Silver Haze, Azurine and London Fog

Chartruese shown in 2x4

Play with tile size to add interest to your space, not every subway tile has to be 3x6.  Try our 6x12 similar to the tile in this kitchen for unexpected elegance.

For an added pop try our sleek and slender 2x8 silhouette, perfect for contemporary interiors.

Nothing is more smashing than a patterned powder room floor.  If you're keeping it simple and neutral everywhere else, why not go wild in the bathroom with our Handpainted collections and live a little?

Install chartreuse with confidence, brighten your world, after all I have been living with it since 1961 and have no regrets.  Did I fall in love with shoes and handbags in kindergarten?  I wish I could say yes.
