Specialists in the design and sheeted supply of Victorian floor tiles and contemporary geometric schemes
At London Mosaic we take great pride in our attention to detail, our design service and the supply of fine products to a high standard. Our services are often required to provide products that are not readily available in standard supply and therefore we have sourced, can commission and are able to create high quality bespoke solutions for specific schemes.
Custom designs for walls and floors in both traditional and contemporary patterns can be reproduced and adapted to our client’s requirements that feature bespoke shapes and designs.
These are tiles that are generally found in a period architectural setting. The more elaborate designs are usually to be seen in larger municipal, ecclesiastical or grand residential locations. Tiles of such quality did not differ in substance from those in more standard accommodation but were generally more elaborate.
Encaustic tiles are also known as inlaid tiles, which refers to the process by which the tiles are made, in order to create the decorative motifs with which they are embellished. This ancient technique was popular with many Victorian tile producers and small versions such as 2 and 4 inch square encaustics were commonly used to enhance the grandeur of geometric designs.
A range of such tiles is still made today by a dedicated pottery producing standard designs as well as bespoke moulds to match originals. We work closely with them in order to be able to supply to our customers such tiles that are crucial when a high level of restoration is required.
Period glazed tiles are a fine original feature worth preserving. During the Victorian era, many were used throughout the architecture of the period for their decoration and durability. Whilst modern glazed tiles are still popular they do not offer the style or hand finished quality that was achieved during this time. Made to imperial measurements, most were hand glazed and decorated giving them a unique finish.
Such tiles can still be reproduced to a similar standard and are perfect for both restoration and new installations where a high quality of finish and design is required.
We now offer two ranges of large format ceramic tiles in sizes up to 600 x 600 mm. They are ideal for bigger spaces where the hard wearing quality of ceramic is required, but with a lower cost per square metre when compared with our Victorian geometric range.
These Italian manufactured tiles are available in a variety of solid and speckled colours, with natural, polished or anti-slip finishes.
Casalgrande Padana produce a range of 16 colours from classic porcelain shades through more modern pastel and vibrant tones. Caesar Ceramics produce a range of 15 warm and cold colours.
Beyond our standard range of geometric pre moulded tiles, London Mosaic offer a bespoke cutting service in order to create required shapes. These may be required for a restoration, a reproduction design that features an unusual shape or a more contemporary design. We employ traditional and modern cutting techniques in order to create such custom shapes.
This type of decorative mosaic is usually located in the entrances and foyers of large houses as well as commercial and municipal buildings.
Schemes such as these can be replicated using ceramic, marble or glass tesserae. Each individual piece is hand cut to size from sections of larger material and assembled onto sheets for installation. All of our designs are accurately constructed and use the finest materials available in order to ensure longevity.
