Henry Road designs new glass tiles for Modwalls
I love visiting the tiny store Henry Road whenever I am in Studio City. The jam-packed shop just off Ventura Boulevard always has a quirky mix of art and objects chosen by the owner Paula Smail.
Smail, who is also a textile designer, has branched out into another medium: glass tile.
The Northern California-based Modwalls, known for their modern tiles, is taking Smail's designs and kiln-firing them onto the back of their Lush glass tile line. The result is a striking wallpaper effect.
The tiles are mesh mounted by the square foot; each sheet contains four 6-inch-square tiles. They cost $36.95 to $45.95 per sheet.
There are five designs available: Gloria (pictured at right), Circles, Field, Butterfly (above) and Bullrush. Custom sizes and colors are also available through Modwalls by special order. For further information: (877) 439-9734.
Alas, Smail doesn't have any tiles in her Henry Road shop. But it's worth stopping in anyway, I say.
