Introducing The Classic Cuerda Seca Collection

Introducing The Classic Cuerda Seca Collection

Sometimes it's simply best to stick with the classics, but let's face it–even the classics can use an update once in a while.  With our classic motto in mind, we used the launch of our 3 New Handpainted Collections as an opportunity to give our existing Classic Cuerda Seca Collection a fresh new look.  By pairing down the colorways and selecting our most versatile designs, we were able to put together a carefully curated classic collection that offers a little something for every style.

Taking a cue from the ocean, our Cool motifs below feature saturated blues with hints of yellow and green.

Our Neutral Motifs emphasize warm yellows, subtle greens, and varying shades of gray.

Lastly, our Warm Motif gains inspiration from rich earth tones, highlighting bold reds, understated greens and surprising pops of yellow.

There are a variety of ways to use the Classic Collection, and the best part?  All the designs seamlessly transition between traditional and contemporary styles.  If your space lends itself to a more traditional look, opt for a Handpainted Cuerda Seca stair riser, border, or a framed kitchen backsplash.

If your space is contemporary but you prefer the look of our Classic Cuerda Seca Collection, we suggest a Handpainted floor.  Paired with fresh gray or white subway tile on the walls and modern fixtures, your space will have the perfect combination of contemporary appeal and Old World charm.
