The history of tiles is long and rich and perhaps as enchantingly beautiful as many tiles themselves, The use of tiles can be dated back as early as 400BC where they graced the Egyptian Temples and Babalonyian palaces of years long past. Tiles have been used throughout history as a way of adding colour, texture, and pattern as well as creating a sense of scale and decoration to an interior or exterior space, a design methodology that translates seamlessly into today’s Modern World.
Here at Jatana, we are forever captivated by the history and story of tiles and their humble ability to transform a space whether it be a home bathroom or a cafe floor there really is something inspiringly magical about encaustic tiles and the design prowess they create with their colour, warmth, and beauty. There is nothing akin to the feeling of walking barefoot across a floor of antique encaustic tiles that hold within them the stories left behind by the hundreds that have walked upon them for centuries gone by.
The tiles that we collate for the Jatana range are sourced and designed with the intention of enhancing the mood and harmony of any interior or exterior space. They traverse a wide range of interior aesthetics from striking Art Deco right through to playful Morrocan and more muted contemporary Spanish and Italian styles. We strive to provide a range that inspires grand ideas (but is also perfect for small ones too!), nurtures the connection between your space and self, and that most importantly makes you feel comfortable and at home!
We are so fortunate to be part of such a vast range of projects and it is our ultimate pleasure to share a few our favourites with you in the hopes that our extraordinary tiles will inspire you during this time of isolation at home, that they will make you imagine projects that could be, or spark a grandiose idea. But most of all we hope that these inspiring tiled spaces make you smile big and with joy on the inside and out just as they make us do each and every day!
Heres to our imaginations staying inspired together as we continue our journeys separately at home xx
