The Lampas tile is effortlessly elegant, it reminds us of a luxury Fired Earth design. In an elongated metro-tile shape, with an imperfect hand finish, the tiles are simple but stylish. The reactive gloss glaze means it appears Matt or Gloss, depending on the light.
‘We’re incredibly excited to be working with Sophie to explore how to use this beautiful bold colour in the home.’ explains Harriet.
Harriet goes on to explain, ‘It’s very much about making a nurturing and inviting atmosphere in the home. This teal tile will create an alluring palette to complement any room. Especially when paired with touches of nature, such as wood grain or natural stone.’
The rich shade, inspired by the blues and greens of the deep ocean, is perfect to create a welcoming, serene and happy environment.
‘The design and colour is so incredibly versatile,’ adds Sophie. ‘It lends itself to all kinds of decor. The bold colour and design is all about enhancing the up-and-coming movement for more soothing and deeper shades. The shapes aren’t overtly fussy or complicated, but create style with real wow factor.’
