Bert & May

One of this York based tiling brand, Bert & May’s first collaborators was Soho House, (then a whole host of other chic hotels: Artists Residence, and it’s well and truly snowballed because it’s also the tiles of choice of Sienna Miller’s home.

So you already get the idea. Chic, patterned, eye catching, the tiles of Bert & May have something of a cult status around it. And it’s not hard to see why.

Balineum Swirl tiles


There’s something for everyone in Balineum’s exquisite collection. Whether it’s designs inspired by seaports of the Mediterranean, ethereal mottled or tortoiseshell glazes or marbled swirls on cement, inspired by the Florentine tradition of marbleising paper. The only difficulty is narrowing down one choice.

Fired Earth Bert and May Bolonia tile

Fired Earth

1983-founded Fired Earth is a firm British favourite for a reason. Selling terracotta tiles as its first product, it grew from a farm in Oxfordshire to one of the best loved producers of tiles in England with a huge range, drawing inspiration from near and far. We love Bert & May Bolonia – inspired by reclaimed designs with an air of faded glamour.
