ZigZag Buzz & laNeva Diagonals

Independent of all this Missoni for Target insanity, we’ve been working on something. Something that planted roots in our mind over 3 years ago. Something we tested but never pursued.  We are here to show you what we got!

The laNeva Diagonal Rift:

 

This is our Rift Series Tile design reinterpreted on a rectangular tile body.  Available in 2″x4″ and 3″x6″. Sold by the piece or mesh mounted in any design you dream up.

What knocks our socks off are the stunning zig zag, diamond and chevron patterns you can make with these little bad boys:

Zig-zags and chevron patterns have never been so hot (and we all know who to thank for that.  Missoni, of course!) Want to check out more of ours? Take a look at our Herringbone ZigZag, the decidedly more relaxed Herringbone Classico or oh-so chic, Herringbone Retro.

Of course, any laNeva pattern can be made with any laNeva Color. That’s the beauty when tile is handmade, just for you.

Oh, and thanks to our hometown brand of Target (and Missoni) for this crazy zig-zag buzz…

Gorgeous New Rift Combinations

Our Rift Tiles are an exciting way to add texture and dimension to your tile design.

We layer and layer and layer two colors of glaze, side-by-side, on one tile.  Sometimes this creates a chemical reaction between the two glazes during firing, resulting in dynamic bubbles. Other times, the result is more subtle and appears like an ocean wave,  a semi-transparent  color overlay, or even created a third color entirely.

We love every one of our Rift combinations and find great fun in exploring these glaze combinations to create some really unique tiles.

While assembling our latest designer sample boxes of 2″x 2″ tile , we’ve decided to add a few of these surprise Rift tiles to each one.  You never know what you’ll get and you may just be the first to see a brand new laNeva colorway!

Please email [email protected] if you’re interested in a sample box of our 2″ x 2″ tile.  These include all of our solid colors and a sampling of Rift color combinations.  If you are interested in a specific colorway, please contact us for more information and availability.

We want your input. Love these? Hate these? Have ideas for a Rift colorways that we haven’t shown yet?

[News Flash] laNeva Product Updates

We’ve been working up a storm lately! Testing new products, developing new Rift color combinations, collaborating with several artists and working to set up new dealers.  Whew!

So, without further ado, we announce:

laNeva is now offering 6″x6″ tile in Solid and Rift Colors!

Showcasing our newest display board with this new 6×6 size tile is Filmore Clark in West Hollywood, CA.  These new, larger handmade tiles are a  perfect compliment to our 3×6 subway tile (or for anyone sick of small-scale tile) these beauties are a fabulous way to make a statement – BIG!!

laNeva’s newest “IT”colors!

You’ve probably seen the post already, but wanted to remind you.

laNeva asked for your help to select  3 out of a possible 6 glaze color options for our limited edition “IT” colors.  We had a fun poll with a ton of “voter turnout” and announced our three limited edition colors colors  a few weeks ago.

#11 Laguna, #19 Smoke and #10 Tangerine are already getting rave reviews and we are having so much fun pairing them with our existing solid colors for some fab new handmade Rift color combos!  Stay tuned for more!

 

laNeva’s Super Secret Collaboration:

Yes, we’ve got something up our sleeve that will have it’s big reveal in the coming months.

Can’t say much now, except it is really different and we’re very excited to be paired with such a talented artist. This is not just a one-time deal, but an new laNeva collection to be available through laNeva Tile dealers, Spacial Adaptation Product Agency and our website.

(I feel super sneaky with a tease like that as I am one of those people who cannot wait for surprises, but there is much more information to follow in the coming weeks.  Trust me, it’s worth the wait!)

Until then: Support local shops and artisans. Add color to your life. Celebrate Spring.  Happy Wednesday!!
