2021 was a call for a change of scenery. After spending 2020 and maybe most of this year at home, it was time for transformation.
Maybe you escaped to our Gallery to gawk at the kitchens you longed to cook in and bathrooms that would be perfect for a long leisurely bath right about now.
Maybe you took the plunge yourself and broke ground on a new design in your own home.
Whatever it was that got you through the year better than when it started, we were here for it. And we’re here to remember all of your favorite tile moments of 2021.
Crank up the volume, it’s the Fireclay Replay!
Searching for inspiration or a quick escape from reality, it was an all-time year on Instagram. We won’t guess how many hours you logged but here are the most scroll-stopping projects you couldn’t get enough of:

We got on TikTok this year and immediately went viral. You loved looking behind the scenes at how our tile is made and meeting the makers who craft each tile by hand. These are the TikToks that you had on repeat:
With all that inspiration, it was time to set your sights on your own homes. After spending so much time at home, a new bathroom or backsplash was just the refresh you needed for a change of scenery without booking a plane ticket.
You love us for our colors and customization. You live for endless possibilities. But at the end of the day, you can’t beat a classic. Shades of white dominated our production line for a fresh and clean look that never goes out of style.
Rectangles reigned supreme in 2021. Variations on the classic Subway Tile showed no signs of falling out of style. Whether you were designing a straight-set, offset or herringbone pattern, these were the shapes that topped your purchase orders.
We launched our Merch Store in October to the delight of Fireclay superfans everywhere. At the same time, we dropped our long-awaited collaboration with Block Shop Textiles and the coasters are selling like hotcakes. These were your top 3 grout-free items for 2021.

When other parts of your project were stalled because of crazy supply chains, we had your back with in-house inventory of our most popular tile, ready to ship in 5 days or less. With no time to waste, here’s what you had to have.
Every tile we make is its own work of art but our Handpainted tiles are in a league of their own. Each tile is one of a kind but three patterns made it through our handpainting department over and over again. Want to see how it's done? Check out our YouTube page!
