The Scoop Behind the Ice Cream Counter

The Scoop Behind the Ice Cream Counter

In honor of National Ice Cream day (this Sunday) we wanted to share the sweetest tile project at Van Leeuwen Artisan Ice Cream as a counter backsplash idea. Their counter is covered in Medium Moroccan Fish Scales, a perfect shape match to the look of a cone with a big scoop of ice cream on top! Inspiring and fun, this project is a dessert for the eyes.

For the Love of Moroccan Fish Scales

Moroccan Fish Scales are one of our most beloved shapes. Similar to ice cream, they're globally embraced. Could there be a better way to brighten your day than with ice cream? Well, Moroccan Fish Scales sure are a day-brightener too. Whatever your style, there's a way that these delicious Fish Scales can be designed to fit into your design vision. From Minimalist to Maximalist or Art Deco to Contemporary - these are the chameleon shapes that will match your style. Simple tweaks to color, orientation, and pattern will make your Moroccan Fish Scale project match your personality perfectly.

Van Leeuwen's Tile Choice

Van Leeuwen began as a yellow food truck roaming the streets of NYC in 2008. Since then, they have grown a mini ice cream empire with multiple storefronts. During that time, they've stayed true to their initial dream of creating artisan ice cream with only a handful of fresh ingredients. Our pals at Van Leeuwen are even experts at non-dairy options! Our bespoke tile seemed like the perfect match to their story of offering high-quality, authentic products. @vanleeuwenicecream MFS counter


Finished Counter Project

A single color of our Moroccan Fish Scales is what we consider standard tile, our most affordable pricing, with many options available to buy directly online! However, every project presents a unique set of challenges. Even if you find something you'd like to purchase online, if you have questions, please reach out to us - we're happy to help!
