Encaustic Cement Tiles by Ca’ Pietra

Encaustic tiles are known and loved for their distinctive method of production – the pattern on the surface is created with different colours of clay that are inlaid together into the body of the tile.  This is unlike ceramic tiles, where the pattern exists in the finishing glaze printed on the surface.  The cement wall and floor tiles by stone specialists Ca’ Pietra are made using the encaustic technique, and as a result, the design and colour should remain for decades even as the tile wears. Once used to decorate... Read More

Long before wallpaper production was mechanised and repetitive patterns came into fashion, the scenes featured in early 18th century interiors were meticulously painted by hand, essentially creating bespoke murals. A popular subject of this decoration was nature, as depicted in... Read More

The History of Victorian Geometric Floor Tiles

The Victorians’ passion for geometric and patterned floor tiles is well known, but how – and why – did this love affair begin? One thing that we all agree on here at the Period Property Store is that the Victorians knew a thing or two about floor tiles. Their colourful geometric and encaustic (or patterned) tiles are not only beautiful, but hard-wearing and functional too. We are especially pleased to introduce Olde English Victorian-style geometric tiles to our customers because their story is interwoven with the history of our home... Read More
