Slate-Ish Tiles: Sustainable interior design just a stones’ throw away


The range of tiles from Slateish are composed of reclaimed Richelite or Paperstone, a high tech paper resin layer material (if you need more detail Google has your back). Aside from some directional jewellery, the brand specializes in tasteful, simple slate effect tiles for all uses.

The range comes in six unpretentious shapes, and there is no minimum order, so you can bring some sexy stone effect to even the smallest space. Of all the geometrical styles, our favorite is six-sided Hex, or three-sided Tri, which will both bring an understated cool to surfaces. The tiles are lightweight and easy to fix, in a selection of 3 earthy colors – Soot, Chocolate and Bark (slightly darker when painted with Bioshield sealant for waterproofing). Continue reading

During this time of year, my favorite thing to do is to be lighting up, admittedly a few dozens of candles, scattered in our little maisonette by the woods. From early morning breakfasts to dinners in the evening. However matches are more romantic and add to the the whole ritual, there are times that simply proceeding a little bit faster and more effective with the whole process addresses the needs of our everyday life. I love functional objects that require no hiding after or before their use is completed. It makes for easiness. So, I’m always on the search for the perfect table lighter. Continue reading
