Moroccan Tiles from Kismet

Issue 16 · The California Life · April 16, 2012

We first spotted Kismet Tile at last year's Dwell on Design exhibition—and it's the freshest-looking tile we've seen in a long while.

Kismet designer Tracey Reinberg has always loved cement tile. From her childhood in San Antonio to her adulthood in the South of France, Reinberg has always lived in places where tile is a major feature of local art and architecture. Reinberg describes her tiles as "infinite," referring both to the possibilities of the repeating graphic patterns but also to the limitless custom designs Kismet offers. Prices start at $25 per square foot for the distinctively modern tile, which is made in Morocco using time-tested methods. To order, visit Kismet Tile.
