Located in a state that knows its minerals, Rocky Mountain Hardware champions them better than most. It recently introduced a new line of handcrafted bronze tiles, which includes the TT620 Arched (shown here in 2" x 6" white bronze with a light patina). Inspired by both nature and geometry, they are sure to add depth and texture to any surface. Available in a variety of sizes and hues.

Moorish-style Malibu tile was commonly used in Los Angeles public buildings and Beverly Hills mansions until the renowned Malibu Potteries burned down in 1932. Sixty years later, Sean McLean discovered a small studio of artists still making the tiles, and in 1993, he set up California Pottery and Tile Works to breathe life back into the dying art form. Now 70 employees produce the bas-relief tiles inside a 20,000-square-foot factory. In addition to original replications, California Pottery and Tile Works produces Art Nouveau, Art Deco and Celtic motifs, as well as custom designs. For residences, these colorful, hand-glazed tiles have been used for pools, fountains and murals.

Stephen Manchee is a leather legacy. His father, Charles, owned his own leather company, Spinneybeck, for more than two decades, and today, the younger’s firm, Blackstock Leather, is headquartered in the schoolhouse that faces his childhood farm. Blackstock sells leather tiles in a wide variety of stock and custom sizes and colors. They can be used on floors, walls and ceilings; the material is an excellent acoustic dampener and is naturally stain-resistant. Manchee is currently developing a system of leather tiles with magnetic backing for portability and easy reconfiguring--or as he puts it, "so it’s yours, not the floor’s."

Vermont Soapstone was founded in 1856 by a family in the town of Perkinsville. When the business went up for sale 139 years later, Glen Bowman grabbed it (though it meant giving up his family’s Nantucket hotel business). He has since watched his company grow to 25 employees as soapstone has evolved from a quotidian material into a sophisticated option for countertops, shower tiles and flooring. Quarried like granite and marble, soapstone is primarily dark gray in color and, because of its talc composition, has naturally white veining from its quartz content. (It’s also softer and more vulnerable to scratches, so specifiy carefully.)

A Japanese poet walks through a bamboo forest, the delicate stalks shift in response to the woman’s movement. From this image architect and engineer Abhinand Lath developed SensiTile Systems, a scintillating new product that redirects and scatters light, shadow and colors according to changes in illumination. The tiles perform their magic via light-conducting matrices, acting much like fiber optics, embedded within a substrate. The tiles can be applied to almost any surface, including facades, swimming pools, and interior countertops, tabletops and walls. Three substrates--acrylic polymer, concrete or resin--are available in standard as well as custom colors.

Self-proclaimed design fanatic Amy Tanenbaum opened Habitus Architectural Finishes this past January, after years in the stone business. "We’re not reinventing the materials," she says of the new endeavor, "but looking for alternative ways to use them." Cork fabric traditionally used for shoes and handbags, Tanenbaum found a way to make it luxurious enough for upholstery. Other highlights: Imurazzi Mosaics, an Italian ceramic tile machine-cut into irregular trapezoidal shapes; cork mosaic penny tiles; ProntoKorq floor and wall panels available in 30 colors; and rustic Italian marble, travertine and sandstone sinks. Tanenbaum’s showroom is located in her five-story Harlem brownstone--which she is completely renovating with top-to-bottom Habitus finishes.

Since its founding in 1988 by partners Jeff Green and Mark Shredrofsky, Stone Source has become a major East Coast importer and distributor of high-end surfaces. The company regularly updates its inventory with new finds, and Green says that white Calacatta marble, countertop-friendly Basaltina and the volcanic green-gray Burlington are the hottest choices among the architects, designers and homeowners who frequent the New York headquarters and the Boston, Chicago, Washington, DC, and Philadelphia offices. The company also is a trusted source for engineered stone, ceramics and glass surfacing.

Terrazzo flooring dates back to the Italian Renaissance, when marble and mosaic workers created a mixture of two parts leftover marble chips with one part cement, then poured, pressed and ground the surface to a super-fine finish. Several epochs later, Fritz Industries offers a more affordable alternative to the classic. In 1962, the Mesquite, Texas, company pioneered a unique terrazzo marble tile, made flexible by adding resin to the composition. The resilient material can be installed relatively quickly, similarly to vinyl-tile installation. It is now available in 13 different lines and more than 150 marble-, mother-of-pearl-, and granite-chip variations.
