We love it when our tile gets noticed!

The entire crew here at modwalls tile company loves it when we get a kind word from our customers or a bit of notice in a fabulous magazine.

Right now there are two great publications giving us a little shout out.

We love Dwell magazine and have been loyal advertisers ever since they gave us a mention in their new products section during our early days,  several years ago.  Our Lush Poppy glass subway tile is shown in the TILE section of Dwell’s Spring 2013 special issue “Renovate Today!”.   We are honored to be included among some great tile manufacturers.



Though we didn’t make it to Neocon this year, fortunately our  CorkDotz cork mosaic tile was chosen to be featured in the Materials Pavilion there.  In addition it got a mention in the “Neocon issue” of  Interiors & Sources Magazine interiorssourcesmag

Modwalls Press: Dwell Magazine – Bath & Spa Special Issue

“Our first ever Bath & Spa special issue is filled with the latest in bathroom design, from outdoor showers to luxurious personal saunas. Dwell’s editors bring the latest and hottest products for any lavatory and any budget.” -Dwell Magazine

“Capturing San Diego’s beachy, laid-back vibe with just a handful of sun-shining-on-the-Pacific tile colors was Public Architecture and Planning‘s real trick in this charming bathroom.  By relying on a multihued array of small tiles, Public’s principal James Brown credits his clients, Kim and Torrey Lee, with selecting a ‘seamless palette that brought the color and feel of the ocean’ into the home.” 

“The clients requested an open shower with a large tub.  But they asked to be surprised with the design of the entire house.  I hope they jumped!” -Architect James Brown

Our tile in Dwell: “The Shipping Muse”

Us modwallians were so excited to see Dwell share this awesome article today, The Shipping Muse, which shows us a home made of 4 large shipping containers.  Um…. for one, that alone is AWESOME.  And second, guess who’s mosaic tile is in their bathroom?

THIS GUY! (*Two thumbs pointing to self*)

Check check it, it’s one of modwalls® Brio® blends all over this stylin’ bathroom!  And you could create the same blend (or one you like even better) with our Brio® mosaic tile blending tool.

The folks at Dwell even tweeted today, “Love the pixelated mosaic tile in the bathroom!”

IN LOVE with this amazing photo of Zem Joaquin, founder and sustainability expert at ecofabulous.

Check out Zem striking a pose in front of our 98% recycled glass tile Viridian Pearl Moonlight and our 100% Recycled Glass Pebble tile (all installed with our Starglass “Diamond” grout). The sweet photo was snapped in The Modern Living Showhouse at Dwell On Design last week.
