Design Trend: Cool Custom Tiled Floors
Why should walls have all the fun?
Naples’ very own Herbeau Couture is looking to rev up Florida floors through its recent partnership with famed French tile maker Winckelmans, known for its vitrified porcelain mosaics and 5,000 tile lines – from traditional and contemporary to totally customized to you.
The artisanal tiles are ideal in the foyer or a living room – where first impressions count – or perfect for powder rooms, where they pair nicely with Herbeau’s lovely painted pieces. They’re a vibrant replacement for some of the ho-hum honey hues we’ve accepted as the norm. Winckelmans , the 147-year-old company with the not so-French-sounding name has created entire flooring schemes for Hermes, Coco-Cola and residential projects around the globe. Bonus: The tiles can be installed inside and out. herbeau.com
