Set The Stage In Seamless Sophistication With Made Groove By Barbara Barry

PORTLAND, Ore. (October 1, 2017) ANN SACKS has unveiled Groove Deco, a new design to the MADE Groove by Barbara Barry collection, one of three ceramic collections Barbara Barry has partnered on with ANN SACKS. For more than two decades, Barbara Barry has brought her sense of style and modern sensibility to audiences on a global scale whether through her residential and commercial interiors or with her vast portfolio of product designs each resonating with timeless relevance and understated chic.

Barry has said that she finds strength in design based upon three principles: simplicity, proportion and harmony; a constant thread that runs through all of Barry’s endeavors. “Simplicity has a power in it,” said Barry. “Totally unassuming, yet confident.”

Joining the existing horizontal Groove Rectangle and vertical Groove Square is a thoroughly modern design, Groove Deco, which has an undulating, textured and raised straie that by design allows grout lines to virtually become part of the landscape. Expertly handcrafted by ANN SACKS artisans, the tile is carved in a 90 degree radial turn, perfect to create statement-making, large installations. Groove Deco can be run vertically or horizontally or mixed and matched to create a basket-weave design.

“I am drawn to subtlety and the quiet patterns in nature,” continued Barry. “They are my decoration.”  

Exclusive to ANN SACKS, Groove Deco is available in a 4”x4” field tile with complementing trims for a professional end result. Groove Deco stoneware and earthenware ceramic tiles are offered in a multitude of Gloss and Matte colors including shades exclusive to Barbara Barry collections or any of the MADE range of earthenware glazes.
