How many tile brands can you name? Unlike fashion labels, tile brands are not as recognisable to most of us. We choose tiles based on designs we like, or that suit the space, and seldom do the brands matter to us. Not that they should, but know that the best names in [European] tiles have been around for decades and for good reason. They produce quality products which are high-performing and durable. The designs they introduce are also a result of a continual analysis of design trends and possibilities on their part, taking into consideration also how the patterns will pair with other elements of a space such as furnishings. RICE selects only brands that pass muster in function and style, and we are proud to dress local homes and commercial spaces with tiles from these manufacturers. Find out more about some of the reputable European brands we carry, below!
