Art Tile Ad­vo­cacy

Arts and Crafts Homes - - DETAILS -

As early as 1905, at least one mag­a­zine writer was ad­vo­cat­ing the use of art tile in Amer­i­can homes. “For the pur­poses of dec­o­ra­tion it is not al­ways es­sen­tial nor even de­sir­able that tiles be me­chan­i­cally per­fect,” wrote Ad­di­son Le Boutil­lier in the Au­gust 1905 is­sue of Good House­keep­ing. “A lit­tle ir­reg­u­lar­ity of shape and glaze which will give a va­ri­ety of color tone is valu­able . . . and re­lieves what might oth­er­wise be a me­chan­i­cal and un­in­ter­est­ing sur­face.”
