Ashland & Halsted
Chapter 12 – Ashland & Halsted is by far our most ambitious collection and an absolute work of passion. For years, we brainstormed on what “Industrial Chic” means and how it can be translated into tile.
Drawing on inspiration from the heyday of American industry, we focused on elements that best represented that era: Strength, Craftsmanship, and Pride. It soon became apparent that the acclaimed Central Manufacturing District of Chicago was the culmination of this piece of Americana. The name “Ashland & Halsted” are two streets running parallel to each other that tape off the 35th Street and Pershing Road corridor where industry titans from the early 1900’s once called home.
