Real Slate Chalkboard Wall: By ARTEKS Arquitectura

More luxurious than your run-of-the-mill chalkboard paint, this slate tile wall in a penthouse apartment in Andorra also doubles as a floor to ceiling chalkboard. And when the chalkboard fad fades, they'll still have an elegant natural stone tiled wall to enjoy...

While traditional chalkboards are made from smooth slate, we like the natural texture in these tiles — especially the checkered pattern their varied tones and sizes produce. We could imagine this on a smaller scale — even just a few individual tiles — adding rich (and functional!) texture around the home.
