Spring 2016 Collections
Three exciting lines by a celebrated new Guest Designer, plus five other equally gorgeous new tile collections and four refreshing addition sets to popular collections.
ANN SACKS introduces three thoughtfully curated tile and stone collections by Kelly Wearstler that feature handmade designs inspired by Wearstler’s signature prints, patterns and motifs in visually striking and textural materials, including hand-painted tiles, embossed stones, and ceramic and stoneware.
Introduced at KBIS 2016, these collections and nine others represent our aspiration to bring life to the design of any space. Interested in learning more?
Kelly Wearstler Collections
Tableau ceramic tile collection
The Tableau series of six designs – Horizon 1; Horizon 2; Reef; Crescent Deco (shown); Crescent Field and Surf – are available in 9”x9” field tiles. All designs are available in a stoneware body with the exception of Surf, which is only available in an earthenware body, and Coastal, which is available in both. There are 50 colors available in stoneware and 108 colors available in earthenware.
Wearstler was inspired in large part by the California coast in all its enveloping beauty. The dimensional surfaces are all created by the ANN SACKS Portland, Ore. artisans to reflect Wearstler’s impeccable eye and attention to detail. “I incorporate materials made by Mother Nature in all my spaces,” explained Wearstler. “They are inherently luxurious.”
Liaison stone mosaics collection
The Liaison series offers nine unique designs, with four being in-stock, and an array of colorways based upon the natural beauty of marble and its contrasting interplay. Three of the designs – Laurel, Palm, and Hillcrest – will be offered as made-to-order rugs, as well as being a striking choice for feature walls, floors, backsplashes, fireplace surrounds, and showers. The remaining Liaison designs, Doheny (small size shown), Elm, Rexford, Canon and Mulholland are all offered in small and large tiles. In whole, Liaison presents the ultimate in customization no matter the expansiveness of the surroundings or more intimate space requirements.
Maven ceramic dry-line collection
Maven is comprised of 11 ceramic tiles that pay homage to some of her most renowned designs and the exploration that continues to unfold. “Designing is sort of falling in love over and over,” said Wearstler. “I’m so inspired by all the incredible artists and collaborators I’ve worked with over the years. Painters, sculptors, architects – I have learned so much from those around me. Being introduced to new techniques and materials that I hadn’t been exposed to before has made me a better designer and continually evolves my aesthetic.”
Maven currently offers Solstice I; Solstice II; Solstice III (shown); Ojai; Breakwater; Islander; Zuma; Dune; Canyon; Vortex; and, Woven, with additional Maven designs already under development.
