Exterior tile selections from Walker Zanger surge as outdoor living becomes safe haven
The experience of being outdoors has become essential for safe gatherings and feelings of well-being, and those with the benefit of having a backyard, patio or terrace have an at-home advantage. The past few months have made many realize the importance of creating a comfortable and functional outdoor space, a desire that will continue even after the summer months. Walker Zanger has seen an increase in demand for their variety of exterior tile selections, which offer the opportunity to redesign the ultimate outdoor oasis at home. Here are a few of their popular offerings:
Walker Zanger has partnered with one of Italy’s oldest family-owned terrazzo tile makers, combining ancient roots and contemporary trends to create the Fragments Terrazzo collection. It combines the unique, composite characteristics of classic terrazzo tiles seen in 17th century Venetian palazzos with sleek, modern shades of gray, white and black. Offered in large 24-by-24-inch tiles, the collection blends tradition and innovation to produce a tile that is both rich with history and in line with current design sensibilities. In 2019 the collection was used in Michael Berman’s Palm Springs project, shown here.
