Walls, Windows & Floors: Popham Design

Issue 35 · Outdoor Furniture · August 31, 2009

When Los Angeles transplants Caitlin and Samuel Dowe-Sandes set about renovating a 250-year-old-house in Marrakesh's walled city, their experience formed the genesis for a tile business they named Popham Design. Popham Design uses local Moroccan artisans to hand-make cement tiles in an array of designs and colors that combine traditional elements with a contemporary twist; almond trees, arches, and donkey cart wheels are all sources of inspiration. To order go to Popham Design; in the U.S. their Paccha line of cement encaustic tiles is available through Ann Sacks.
