Nipping on the heels of the upcoming Dwell on Design show next week here in Los Angeles (where you might see a few Apartment Therapy contributors roaming the floor, so please say "hello" if you're there between the 25th-27th) is a collaboration announcement from two personal favorites, Heath Ceramics and Dwell. Heath Ceramics will be unveiling its newest tile line, “Dwell Patterns”, a modular tile system comprised of three tile shapes, half hex, wide hex, and little diamond, meant to be used in combination and interchangeably.
We think Catherine Bailey and Robin Petravic of Heath Ceramics have done a great job of merging the Dwell aesthetic with their own recognizable handcrafted-warmth that characterizes their whole product line (and we've been eyeing their tableware line more regularly recently as we begin decorating our own space). It doesn't hurt that the three colors they chose are amongst our favorites, and one or all should work in a wide variety of interior spaces.
"Dwell Patterns" will also mark the expansion of Heath’s in-stock tile options. Two white glazes, a glossy and a matte in each shape, will be made available in stock in four and twelve-square-foot boxes, making the quality and beauty of hand crafted tiles further accessible to customers.
As always, the new collection maintains the company's rigorous standards of craft and quality. The tiles are all created using the vitreous Heath Ceramics clay body, which is suitable for both indoor and outdoor use. Prices range from $20-$40/square foot, depending on the various made-to-order and in-stock options available.
We can't wait to check these out in person next week on the Dwell on Design show floor, because as nice as these preview images are, tilework has to be seen and touched in person to be truly appreciated. We've got our eyes on both the subtle white and the vibrant turquoise designs, with the hopes that Heath and Dwell have future plans to expand the line with further patterns and colors.
