Tile Week 2011, Day 2: For a Touch of Whimsy, Try Ceramica Bardelli Tiles


We’re told that the Italians are kings of the hyper-modern ceramic tile, but one of our sources recently sent us these most interesting decorative products from the Italian company Ceramica Bardelli. Though we’re not really into the whole decorative thing, these got high marks because they’re playful and serious all at the same time. Based on the work of Italian sculptor and engraver Piero Fornasetti, the tiles were created using the technique of hand-applied decalcomania, which results in 13 lines of decorative tiles with various themes. Tiles come in a variety of sizes—from 8 inches by 8 inches to 4 inches by 16 inches—and in matte or glossy finishes. And lest you think these are only for traditional interiors, check out the slick installations below. www.bardelli.it.
