What makes Chapter 10 Breakwater a unique offering in the Jeffrey Court list of chapters?
Chapter 10 Breakwater Collection represents a departure from the traditional approach of product development at Jeffrey Court. For Breakwater, we reached out to the Interior Design community, to the well-respected Southern California-based designer Katerina Tana, whom had recently launched her own textile collection: Katerina Tana Collection LOOM. She has now developed the stunning Breakwater Collection for us and it represents her passions: the ocean, fine linen, and crisp, clean design that will stand the test of time.
What are the key features of Chapter 10 Breakwater?
Chapter 10 Breakwater Collection has many unique features. The most striking of these is the Belgian linen texture, which is actually pressed into the wet clay prior to firing. Great care is taken by tile artisans to ensure that the linen effect is authentic. The fields are offered in three sizes – a 3” x 9” bar tile, a 3” x 3” field tile, and a wonderful 6” x 18” plank. Also included are hand assembled ceramic mosaics which also feature the true linen texture. All fields, mosaics, and trims are offered in six stunning and vibrant colors, in a wonderful gloss finish. The popularity of the linen texture feature is closely followed by the beautiful coral motif decorative tiles, which are hand pressed. Available in a complementary 3” x 3” size, these decoratives are offered in all six colors. As with all Jeffrey Court Chapters, Breakwater Collection includes a matching 1” x 9” rail, 2” x 9” crown, and a 3-3/4” x 9” base moulding.
Where can this collection be used?
Chapter 10 Breakwater is for interior wall use. Kitchen & bath walls, backsplashes, fireplace surrounds, or any other interior wall space were typical wall tiles are used. The field tiles are NOT recommended for floors.
Are there any special design or installation tips for Chapter 10 Breakwater?
