Top 5 Commercial Projects of 2016

Posted by: Kali • Dec 27

Top 5 Commercial Projects of 2016

From creative studio spaces to large scale exteriors, we've put some exciting commercial projects under our belt in 2016. We're sharing a few of our favorites here, but if you'd like to see more, head to our Pinterest Board. Cheers to 2017 and another year of great design! If you're working on a commercial project, contact us to learn more about our Trade Program and volume pricing. 

5. Dandelion Chocolate: White Picket Tile
Right in line with this year's white geometric tile trend, a bright white wall of our Picket Tile offers a palate-cleansing backdrop for this local choclatier's undeniably delicious kitchen prep.

4. The Perennial
Using our Recycled Clay Body in 4 beautiful glazes, our commercial team worked with the founders of the The Perennial to choose tile that complement their environmental principles, as well as the aesthetic of their space.

They went for Flagstone, in a custom size for their bar area:

The founders of the San Francisco restauarant worked with our commercial team to develop a custom glaze for their entry way floor tile:

Their bathroom area featured larger field tiles in a soft blue (we loved how they used wood as a trim piece here):

The kitchen area, which is visible from the dining area and bar, used classic square tiles in a creamy white:

3. Mister Jiu's
Keeping in theme with this year's use of bold color and pattern, thoughtful design (and our tile) is abundant in this San Francisco restaurant.

Their kitchen area features 2x8 tiles in Sea Green (that we placed a patine over to highlight the crackle, engobe finish):

Their take on the classic pink and black bathroom is one for the books:

Our specialty shape, Picket, became a popular choice this year! It's featured in the men's bathroom of Mister Jiu's in a bold blue:

2. Light Lab
"We wanted our space to be the love child of playful and avant-garde—fun and inviting, but also weird enough to stop you in your tracks," say Anne Sage and Caroline Lee of Light Lab. This show stopping kitchen island and triangle tile floor definitely got a lot of much deserved attention.

1. 388 Fulton St. 
Using our Glazed Thin Brick to its fullest potential, David Baker Architects outfitted the exterior of this San Francisco apartment building with a blend of black brick. We love seeing our product used to this scale; it really allows for the handcrafted nature of our tiles to shine.
