Introducing the V&A Brompton collection from British Ceramic Tile
From walls through to floors, create an inspiring look in your next project with the new V&A Brompton collection.
Victorian decoration at its finest, the Brompton range from British Ceramic Tile and the V&A delivers style and sophistication. Celebrating the Victorian fascination with medieval geometric floors, this striking collection of 200x200mm porcelain tiles will transform walls and floors inside and out, decorating projects with authentic character.
Each design offers its own unique aesthetic and has been inspired by a nineteenth century tile, held in the archives at the world-famous museum. The versatile patterns all work effortlessly together in a contemporary blue and grey colour palette creating a patchwork effect on walls or floors, or can be installed as standalone surface coverings.
Liam Poole, head of customer marketing at British Ceramic Tile says: “With the V&A Brompton collection, our design team looked to deliver a range of pattered tiles that architects and designers could use inside and out to bring a unique personality to spaces. Characterful and authentic, these high quality porcelain tiles are ideal for busy commercial environments, providing a hard wearing floor solution that can also withstand cold temperatures making the tiles well suited to patios and outdoor features.”
Based on a patterned earthenware tile designed in the medieval style by nineteenth century tile maker, William Godwin (1813–83), this classic design of geometric elements has been reinterpreted into a contemporary palette of soft greys.
This design is inspired by a Victorian earthenware tile design, in the style of a medieval floor tile, held in the V&A collection. In cool shades of complementary grey, Abbey Circle has an authentic and handmade feel.
This design has been adapted from an earthenware tile, designed by the master of Gothic Revival, A.W.N. Pugin (1812–52), after a medieval floor tile. Using timeless blue tones Pugin Filigree features an intricate design of stylised leaves and flowers.
