Handcrafted in California, the Stellar tile collection from Sonoma Tilemakers offers a bevy of field sizes, including a 2-inch by 8-inch rectangle tile. Available in 108 colors with names like “Old Soul” and “Retro Khaki,” these tiles easily bridge the gap between modern and traditional. Available at United Tile in Portland.
Everything old is new again, especially at Heath Ceramics. The Coupe line was introduced in 1948 as the first dinnerware style for the iconic California-based pottery company and continues to impress today as a “modernist classic.” It looks equally good stacked on open shelves or plating your next dinner party.
With the Purist kitchen sink faucet, Kohler blends a classic bridge profile with clean lines and minimal detailing. The high arch is bound to clear the tallest pots sitting in your sink and even rotates a full 360 degrees.
The Salt Chair updates the enduring Shaker-style silhouette without any fuss. Made of solid natural oak or beech and finished in a water-based paint, it’s a new classic that’ll pair nicely with your farmhouse table. Available at Design Within Reach.
