CERAMIC TILE. CRAFT. DURABILITY. TIMELESS DESIGN.
Since 2006, Subway Ceramics has been the exclusive tile source for the distinctive “subway tile” aesthetic that defines American pre-war tilework.
Consider the distinguishing characteristics of a Subway Ceramics installation – perfectly flat field tile, pencil-thin grout joints, soft wrap-around corners, and integrated ceramic accessories. These are just some of the exquisite details that developed over 100 years ago to become the world’s most advanced and sophisticated system of tilework.
Design professionals specify Subway Ceramics for its design authenticity, consistent quality, and design versatility. Subway Ceramics is equally at home in a Brooklyn brownstone as a landmark NYC subway station; an atomic ranch in Palm Springs or a mid-century BART station in San Francisco; a Frank Lloyd Wright home renovation in Oak Park or the restoration of his historic Park Inn Hotel in Mason City.
Whenever our clients choose our timeless aesthetics, sample our exceptional palette of glaze colors and finishes, and obsess over the sophisticated design details that define the Subway Ceramics collection, we know they care about the craft. And so do we.
Realize your design intent with a space that reflects your own personal style, a style that is both fresh and enduring. Avoid the perennial fashions that can impart a dated quality to your work. Rediscover the creative freedom by imaging new renditions of these traditional tile forms.
Select from a wide assortment of glaze colors and finish options to manifest the visual effect you are imagining. Dial into an aesthetic movement, from the Victorian to the Arts & Crafts, Art Nouveau, Moderne or Atomic age to recreate a century of architectural period styles.
Discover how to create an elegant, 3-dimensional space without the mitered, cut-to-fit look of conventional tile installations. Restore the original character to your period home or devise a place and time for your next hospitality project. Partner with us and we will help you make it happen.
