Victorian tiles evoke the romance of English heritage.
Nostalgia for Victorian elegance led Original Style to recreate these English heritage floor tiles. Originally used to ornament medieval churches, monasteries, and the homes of the British aristocracy. Victorian tiles lend themselves to simple or complex repeating geometric patterns. For use in the restoration of period homes or to bring a sense of history into a contemporary space. For this collection, Original Style has researched a selection of popular designs sourced from pattern books from the Victorian and Edwardian eras, as well as Art Deco patterns. Details for recreating these heritage designs are available in the Original Style Victorian Tiles catalog. These historic designs complement a home filled with antiques and leather-bound volumes. With 12 colors and 7 shapes, the permutations are endless.
