Geometric floor tiles are part of Britain’s heritage and were used originally to ornament medieval churches and monasteries, and the homes of the aristocracy. Their popularity was enhanced in the 1830s when the young Queen Victoria came to the throne, and they soon became one of the hallmarks of the new Romantic Movement.
Within a quarter of a century the popularity of the style could be seen in the furthest reaches of the British Empire. Both plain and decorated tiles were used in every type of situation from porches in terraced houses to grand halls in castles.
Nostalgia for Victorian elegance led the company, Tile Source, to recreate these classic floor tiles, using modern production methods combined with traditional clay and colored stains. They provide a magnificent selection of popular designs drawn from Victorian pattern books and also some original, more modern designs. See great pictures of Victorian floor tiles >>
