Spanish tiles, Chinese-style!

Posted on July 19, 2017 by Becca | 0 comments

We love a challenge, and were delighted when interior designer Judith Stewart commissioned a bespoke tile to complement the antique Chinese furniture in her client's bathroom. Our partners in Spain were more than equal to the challenge, and produced a new metal mould for the pattern, while Judith came to our showroom to choose her colours. Judith then used the patterned tiles as a 'rug' within matching plain tiles.

Says Judith: 

"I realise that I haven’t thanked you and sent over the photos of the finished shower room where we used the tiles you made for us, in such short order, which meant we managed to get the job done perfectly on time.

"The clients are absolutely thrilled with the room and the tiles worked perfectly with the waterproof plaster from Viero and all the old pieces of Chinese furniture.

 "I do hope I get the chance to work together with you again soon."

Ibiza Kitchen - Our Tiles are Coming Home!

Posted on June 27, 2017 by Becca | 0 comments

We do sometimes sell our Spanish tiles to clients in Spain - and we absolutely love this cheerful Ibiza kitchen, where the client used a colourful encaustic patchwork as a kitchen splashback. We think they look absolutely gorgeous with the wooden cupboard-fronts, the sunhat-style lampshades and the rustic high ceiling - while the matt black marble makes for fabulous worktops. Did you know that Alhambra can supply wonderful marble as well as our fabulous tiles? You can read about it on our website:

Clerkenwell Design Week

Posted on June 01, 2017 by Becca | 0 comments

Our feet are still throbbing and our backs are still aching, but we couldn't be happier with the whirlwind of long days and excitement that was Clerkenwell Design Week.

For three days last week, we moved our wares and created a mini-showroom on our stand in the Additions Pavillion of CDW2017

One of our main purposes at the show, was to debut our new encaustic pattern designed by Rob Lowe, aka Supermundane

Rob is an artist local to us and we've been enjoying his fun, colourful style for a while. After months of working with him on this collaboration, we can confirm that Rob's amazing talent is definitely matched by a great personality and we couldn't be happier to have worked with him, especially with the result:

    

He's created a single design in two colourways that tessellates in many different ways to create new patterns. How many patterns? LOTS! We've been playing around with them and keep coming up with new combinations.

This tile is now ready to order, so contact us if you're interested in using it on a project. We're also selling a limited number of individual tiles with a certificate of authenticity signed by Supermundane; so if you're interested in owning an affordable art piece by one of the most dynamic illustrators in the contemporary scene, you can do so here

Another reason to exhibit at Clerkenwell was to showcase Alhambra's bespoke work. Over the years we have worked closely with many clients, both trade and retail, to deliver tiles made to measure. Our enthusiasm and passion for what we do, paired with an excellent, close relationship with our suppliers means that there's rarely a brief we cannot meet.

The bespoke tiles we had on show at Clerkenwell included these vibrant designs for Parisian restaurant Pink Mamma:

           

And last but not least, we also wanted to take the opportunity to display some of our new products, amongst which, our lattice bricks proved to be very popular:

These are suitable for use both inside and out. They make beautiful feature walls that filter light and create interesting shadows.

Overall a great experience. 

So, Venga! & Animo! We're really looking forward to helping the guys we met at Clerkenwell and all our other clients who have enquired about exciting summer projects!

Posted on May 23, 2017 by Becca | 0 comments

 Here we are folks... drumroll....... the Super-Tile revealed! Best to play this on 'silent' - our Spanish partners love putting music on their vids, and we haven't as yet worked out remove it - at least not while getting ready for the big launch at Clerkenwell Design Week at 10am today!

It's been fun - and hopefully we will see some of you over the next 3 days at Clerkenwell. We are in the Additions Pavilion outside Craft Central in St John's Square. For the duration of the show we are selling individual Super-Tiles in a presentation box with a Certificate of Authenticity signed by the artist Supermundane himself! You might even catch him on the stand with us, as he will be popping in from time to time.

We're showing some of our other collaborations, too.
