Did you know that tin tiles were originally used in prosperous Victorian houses at the end of the 19th century, meant to emulate high-end decorative plaster? No? I must admit I mistakenly thought that they originated in Brooklyn where they use them everywhere on ceilings and walls, in shops, cafes, hotels and homes. Who knew? I did know however that they are highly coveted by antique dealers and collectors, and that there are some really convincing wall coverings on the market that mimic the effect.
Drum roll… the new “Antique Tin Tiles Collection” by Christophe Koziel
The combinations and effects are endless. They can either be placed vertically in order to cover your walls or to create a feature wall, or horizontally as a wainscot, or on the ceiling as they were first intended.
They can be used as a splashback, a headboard, or individually used as art.
Let’s get creative.
