Great Room Fireplace, Pasadena Showcase House of Design 2014

It was a pleasure to collaborate with Foothill Tile and Stone and designer Kathryne Dahlman on the 2014 Pasadena Showcase House of Design’s Great Room Fireplace.  Kathryne Dahlman’s vision was to create an Arts and Crafts inspired space centered around the room’s expansive fireplace.  The designer chose a palette of greens and creams, pairing the Iznik listello with a two-inch Byzantium decorative tile.


The Iznik listello draws on inspiration from 16th century Turkish embroidery.   A classic flower and vine motif punctuated with a mint medallion, this lace-like listello engages the viewer with its sense of movement.  The Iznik listello works as a running band or to frame a backsplash focal or fireplace surround, as seen in the Great Room Fireplace.  

The fireplace was entirely hand-crafted using old-world techniques.  The historic process was in keeping with this authentic Arts and Crafts era home designed by architect Stiles O Clements.
