Heritage Tile brings back the look of bygone eras with their Subway Ceramics collection. In fact, they created their collection using the same specifications used by the Tile Guild of America in the 1890s, using original profile dyes and processes that have been retained for over 100 years.
The Subway Ceramics collection is further broken down into specific eras, such as the Bungalow, Cottage and pre-war era Subway. But Heritage does not stop with vintage looks. You can also find Japanese tile and mosaics to fit your decorating style.
The Subway Ceramics collection at Heritage is testament to elegance that endures over time. Everything in the collection was chosen to provide a look that meets your needs. Whether your look is Victorian, Contemporary, Art Deco or your own unique style, the Subway Ceramics collection can bring authenticity and sophistication to your room.
Designed after the tiles that were found predominantly in the train stations of New York City, the Subway Ceramics collection comes from a desire to preserve authentic American tile work. Heritage uses contemporary methods to create tile with historical significance to give your home the same authentic feel.
Mosaic tile has been used to decorate walls and floors for centuries but became a decorating trend in the United States around the turn of the century. The Subway Mosaics collection pays homage to the artisans that created intricate tile designs during the early 1900s.
Using historic references, Heritage Tile created a collection with true significance. Mosaics can be combined with other collections to give you a truly unique design for our floor, backsplash or countertop.
When you think of Japanese style, the words harmony, natural, traditional and serene come to mind. This was the intention behind the creation of Heritage Tile’s Japanese Tile line. The collection adds to their growing portfolio of international culture, providing a rich, reliable source of authentic tiles for any décor.
Designs of herringbone, a hallmark of Japanese design, can be created using this collection or you can choose geometric patterns using Fundo Tsunagi, a tile using a traditional Japanese pattern that translates to “linked weights.” Orimono, which means “fabric” or “textile,” creates the look of cloth walls for a unique design in a kitchen, bath or living room.
