HISTORICALLY AUTHENTIC PLACE & TIME Produced to historical standards consistent with a specific place and time. Durable Versatile Practical Historic Durable,versatile and affordable mosaics have been used for more than 100 years in American architecture.

Choose from our catalog of historic classic fields and popular patterns or make your own design. With 24 colors, 4 shapes and 7 sizes, the possibilities are almost unlimited.

Mosaics filled that need as they are adaptable: fields and borders customized to each station created personalization and interest. Durable, porcelain mosaics have been used for hundreds of years globally and beautifully stand the test of time. Versatile, the variety of colors and shapes available allow for creative expression of any pattern that architects or designers can dream up. Equally at home in bathrooms as well as foyers, lobbies, restaurants and taverns, Subway Mosaics are a practical solution to create spaces celebrating history and breathing new life into the past.

  6. 6. The eighteenth century archeological excavations lead to a rediscovery of classical antiquity. The ancient patterns uncovered in these digs were quickly incorporated in government and institutional buildings of the era. Mosaic patterns of this period are usually classical in tone with the Greek key most widely used. Queen Anne homes, popular in the US during the Victorian era, were characterized by a decorative exuberance. With their polychrome painted facades, wrap around porches, and tiled entrances, these homes can’t be missed! Mosaic patterns of that period are usually very colorful and framed with a decorative border. Period Styles Tel: 888-387-32803 QUEEN ANNE VICTORIAN 1875-1890 NEOCLASSICAL 1885-1930
  7. 7. The bungalow home may come in a variety of sizes, but usually feature overhanging low-pitched roofs, off-set entrances and asymmetrical facades. These characteristics impart a sense of coziness and stand in contrast to the formality of the preceding Victorian era. Mosaic patterns here are simple with the color themes closely matched to the wall colors. “Art for all” was the driving principle of this movement. Art Nouveau originated in Europe at the end of the 19th century and featured curvaceous lines and natural motifs. Mosaics during this time are characterized by florals and nature elements. 4info@heritagetile.com ART NOUVEAU 1890-1914 BUNGALOW 1895-1940
  8. 8. Craftsman homes, fully functioning works of art in which we live, focus on the craft of all the finishes. Natural materials are used throughout, wood, brick, stone, glass and of course, tile, which offers functional beauty intrinsic to these homes. Mosaics, composed of rich colors and earthy tones are representative of the handmade creative effusion of that time. Tel: 888-387-32805 CRAFTSMAN 1900-1935 The term “art deco” was coined from the 1925 international exhibit held at Paris’s Musee des Arts Decoratifs. This period, embodying faith in progress and modern machinery, featured geometric shapes, rectilinear patterns and colorful stylization of the organic and mechanical. Mosaics were characterized by geometrics and rectilinear lines and lavish use of color. ART DECO 1920-1930
  9. 9. Art Moderne showed a restraint following the lavish ornamentation of Art Deco. Art Moderne - or Streamline Moderne - took its inspiration from the growth of speed, travel and technology.This is reflected in geometric forms, horizontal lines, chevrons, and zigzags evocative of the era’s technological advances.Wall surfaces were typically light and trimmed with bright or darker colors and the mosaics echoed these color tones. 6info@heritagetile.com STREAMLINE MODERNE 1930-1940 MID CENTURY MODERN 1940-1970 Aforward looking style advocating simplicity in form, usage of readily available materials and mass production. Interior design elements reflected these same principles which were often simple in form with bold colors and patterns inspired by the space age era. Mosaics of this era were characterized by modular shapes, using variations on classic patterns like the checkerboard, spiral and weaves in colors coordinated with the walls.

  19. 19. Installation & Care Guidelines Prepare the substrate to be as at and de- fect free as possible. This ensures an even installation and minimizes mortar pushing through. Lay one sheet at a time. Check alignment and consistency of spacing between sheets . Use water to remove any hazing or resi- due. Seal all porcelain tile and allow to dry a minimum of 12 hours. * if applicable Dry laying the tile is recommended. Adjust the pattern and cut the tiles to t the space. Number the sheets and stack them for quick and correct installation. Use a grout oat, speed square or block of wood to push tiles at into mortar while setting. Repeat step 3 until all sheets are laid. Let dry. Use sanded grout, keep grout oat at with tile surface, do not overwipe and cre- ate shallow joints. Wait 72 hours for curing. Reseal all tile/grout as needed. For more information: refer to the TCNA Manual (Tile Council of North America), current edition for tile installation stan- dards and methods. Apply mortar using a 1/8”- 3/16” V-notch or U-notch trowel for tiles 2”or smaller. Work 2-4 square foot section at a time to prevent mortar skim over. Wait a minimum of 12 hours before remov- ing face tape. Pull plastic o at the horizon- tal (against tile). A heat gun can be used 6-8 inches from oor to loosen bond. 11 3b3b 55 22 3c3c 66 3a3a 44 Substrate Preparation Tile Installation Tile Installation Tile Installation Seal Grout Remove Face Tape* Tile Layout 16info@heritagetile.com
