1. Whimsical Office Space

First up on our list of eye candy commercial projects is the whimsical office space of Springboard for the Arts. This space features two shining moments for our handmade tile: one as a custom lobby mural and the other as an inspiring break-room backsplash. The trendy mix of tile shapes and glaze colors in both of these spaces elevates the natural sophistication and quirkiness of the space. The soft neutral blues with pops of vibrant colors pair flawlessly with the natural wood, industrial features and overall fresh vibe.

2. Trendy Cafe Backsplash

Trendy cafes are the place to be whether you're treating a client to a cup of coffee, enjoying a happy hour beverage, or working remote for the day. Heathers is one of our favorite because it's home to artisan crafted sandwiches and artisan crafted tile. Plus, it's just a stones throw away from our NE Minneapolis studio. For their gorgeous bar backdrop, they chose chose a classic 3"x8" Subway Tile in our most popular glossy green glaze: 75 Emerald. To make this light and airy space even more unique, they opted for a funky pattern that's neither staggered nor stacked. We can't peel our eyes away!

3. Hotel Bar Luxurious Backsplash

This dreamy bar can be found at the Crowne Plaza in North Augusta. The sophisticated deep green hues of our herringbone tile work flawlessly with their design inspiration for the space. According to the photographer, Sims Patrick Studio, their color palette was inspired by the lush banks of the Savannah River and their neighboring baseball team, the Augusta Green Jackets. We love when tile can bring a place, story, and concept to life.

4. Archer Apartment Kitchenette

We are firm believers that whether you are a homeowner or home-renter that you should be in love your space. Archer Apartments in Minneapolis feels the same. They took this small 9"x6" kitchenette and turned what could have been a dull space into a masterpiece. The gorgeous palette of grays and blues plus our signature "river" design makes this kitchenette a team favorite.

5. Gregory's Branded Coffee Shop

Gregorys Coffee is not only fueling the coffee world but the commercial design world, as well! Gregory Zamfotis is turning his coffee shops into works of art with handmade tile.
