Ted Baker tiles
Ted Baker is a name that is synonymous with style and clothing, however, the reason Ted expanded into tiles is an interesting one.
It was during a brief sojourn to Europe that Ted got all fired up after stumbling across a strikingly stylish house finished entirely with decorative tiles. From floor to ceiling, every inch was covered in the finest ceramics; even the furniture and oven were adorned with intricate mosaic, with a place for everything and everything in its place. “Isn’t it funny,” thought Ted, “how a small piece makes all the difference?”
Realising that a shirt fitted with ceramic tiles might be a little stiff for the man about town, Ted set about creating a range of tiles that could decorate the home instead.
Collaborating with British Ceramic Tile, each stylish range in the sTile collection is lovingly crafted to ensure your house is always a home. From the eye-catching GeoTile to the multi-use VersaTile, each design combines Ted’s eye for detail with his appreciation for tiles with style.
Let's take a look at this new tile collection in greater depth.
Ted Baker VersaTile
VersaTile by name, versatile by nature. Designed to complement all of Ted's tiles, these porcelain designs can be used in a number of ways—hence the name! Different shades of grey and white in a matt finish combine to highlight patterns and create borders. You can even use them on their own for a minimalist look. Simple yet stylish, the VersaTile collection from Ted Baker is certainly no ordinary range of tiles.
Great for: Colour blocking in minimalist style bathrooms.
Ted Baker Geometric
These gorgeous tiles are based on 2 of Ted's own print and texture designs. Crafted through a combination of 2 quite complex manufacturing techniques, they have been inspired by simple Moroccan interiors to bring a stylish and refreshing element to your decor. A true minimalist look can be achieved with the Geometric collection.
Great for: Creating an authentic feel in Arabian style bathrooms.
Ted Baker Paradise
Based on Ted's popular Paradise print, these beautiful tiles come in a subtle shade of grey, helping to create cool and calming interiors in your home. Supplied in a pack of 9, these tonal tiles can be used to create a patchwork effect on your walls and floors. Some of the tiles even have an added lustre effect, catching the light perfectly for a delightfully surprising experience.
Great for: Creating a backdrop in tropical bathrooms.
Ted Baker Partridge
Featuring a charm that is almost rustic, these grey matt tiles come with a classic rococo pattern. Each pack of 9 contains a random assortment of 4 subtle varied designs, each one ever so slightly different to the others, for a genuine, handmade feel. Equally at home on walls or floors, Partridge tiles from Ted Baker are guaranteed to please.
Great for: Rustic bathrooms.
Ted Baker GeoTile
Inspired by those gorgeous Edwardian tiles that lead up to the front doors of London's most fashionable townhouses, these retro style tiles will make a real statement in your home. Sleek tonal grey combined with Ted's favourite geometric prints, make these tiles the perfect choice for walls and floors. Featuring 12 different geometric designs, 24 tiles supplied per pack, 2 of each design, you can mix and match for a look that is truly unique. GeoTile can even be used outdoors—perfect if you're looking to extend your theme to an exterior surface.
