High-Style Tiles from Ann Sacks

| FROM THE PRINT EDITION |
 
 

Whether it’s a Native American–inspired pattern hand-painted on terra-cotta or a simple rounded-edge ceramic style, tile is a smart way to add personality and flair to virtually any room. We’re swooning over the latest lot from Portland-based tile and stone sanctuary Ann Sacks, which relocated its downtown showroom last fall to a 2,880-square-foot, natural-light-filled space in South Lake Union (near West Elm).

For a bathroom makeover, pile on geometric tiles—diamonds, squares, rectangles—in shades of pale blue, crisp white, rich brown and other hues from the new ASC Modern collection (from $74.99 per square foot). Or spruce up your kitchen’s backsplash with Versailles Mesh (not shown; from $114 per square foot), a hand-silvered, shatter-resistant glass stunner that comes in a number of sizes and finishes, and features a streaked and spotted patina akin to an aged mirror. Your surfaces have never had it so good.

Ann Sacks, 2201 Westlake Ave., Suite 103; 206.441.8917; annsacks.com
