HISTORIC GLAZES

The original subway tile was designed in gloss white, but by the mid-1920s new glazes and finishes were introduced. The glazes in this collection are divided into five glaze series, each inspired by a historic style of architecture. These glazes can be used as an accent color throughout a white field, or can create a vibrant surface when used as your field glaze.

SUBWAY TILE

Reproduces the classic Victorian-era colors in a deep, translucent, crackle finish. Use as a simple accent in a white field, or create a lavish surface when used as your field glaze.

BUNGALOW TILE

This palette features a soft, satin finish and hues steeped in the Arts & Crafts tradition. Colors are inspired by the chinaware sinks and ceramic accessories of the time.

ART NOUVEAU

Subway tile, Paris style. Combine these rich glazes with faceted bevel field tile, cap and base moldings, liners and trim tiles to achieve the style of the Parisian Metro.

COTTAGE TILE

This palette features a stained satin crackle glaze finish that harmonizes perfectly with any interior in the Cottage style. Quintessentially charming!

MODERNE TILE

Inspired by the late art deco style, these glazes are ideal for subway tile installations in Streamline Moderne buildings and spaces.

ATOMIC TILE

Inspired by the bright hues of 1950’s Fiestaware and the softer shades of Formica Boomerang countertops.

PATTERNS

HISTORIC SUBWAY TILE PATTERNS

Below are subway tile patterns that have adorned walls of American structures from the pre-war era to today’s modern spaces. Pair your favorite pattern with one of our historic glazes for a design that suits your space.
