Design Sleuth: Fez Tile from Granada Tiles

Sarah Lonsdale June 12, 2012

We first admired LA-based Granada Tiles' Fez pattern at Intelligentsia Coffee in Silverlake, so we took note when we spotted them again in the offices of Marin Country Mart.

Jim Rosenfield, the man behind Marin Country Mart (read more about his office here), designed his office to look like a home. "This is where I spend a lot of my time," he says, "so I wanted the space to feel residential." For our next bath remodel, we're following suit.

The company fabricates the tiles in Nicaragua, where skilled craftsmen use a centuries-old process: pigmented cement is poured into intricate metal molds, then pressed and left to air dry (no firing is involved).
