The New Glass Tile

In the fashion world, many would say that this year, orange is the new black.  I have to agree!  It's a hot color right now and I am seeing it everywhere!

Because I specialize in kitchens and "little black dress" is backsplash tile.  I work with it on a day to day basis and I have seen so many trends come and go.  One trend that is hot right now is glass tile.  It's not only beautiful, but easy to clean and maintain.

I must say, that I have specified many a glass tile and have enjoyed every minute of it!  I am sure there will be many more kitchens and baths with glass tile in my future.  However, there is something that has been catching my eye lately - wood and leather tile!  I am loving everything about both of these materials and love the fact that they are now being used more in the least expected areas such as kitchens and baths.  Below are some of my favorites...

Walker Zanger "Sobu" Bamboo tile which comes in three different finishes 

Mesquite wooden tiles from Ann Sacks..very cool option for a backsplash tile or an entire wall

This Ann Sacks leather tile, Piel, is one of my favorites. I love how it wraps the entire bathroom in this photo.

Walker Zanger's Wood Age Collection, a porcelain tile that looks like wood planks

Walker Zanger's Matouche Collection, another porcelain with the texture of exotic leathers without the maintenance :)
