Walker Zanger's new Sketchbook collection showcases tile hand painted by artisans.

Featuring a mid-century modern aesthetic to blend bold color and clean lines with organic graphics and geometric minimalism, the collection comes to life with unique paint-strokes in every ceramic tile.

“The designs in Sketchbook are inspired by the whimsy of mid-century modern fabric design, bringing to mind artistic patterns by Lucienne Day and textile designs from Alexander Girard,” said Walker Zanger's vice president of design and marketing, Jared Becker. “The name Sketchbook signifies the process of marking by hand, presenting nature-based motifs in simple geometric patterns.”

The varied inspirations behind each design puts a new twist on mid-century modern style. The “Ripple” pattern reflects the fluidity of dropping a pebble into a pool of water and “Dandelion” presents a whimsical interpretation of the flower with an attractive, mid-century modern sensibility. Featuring a simple palette of black, blue, grey and yellow, the collection makes a strong statement, adding fun visual appeal to backsplashes, bathrooms, restaurants and retail spaces.
“Creating a unique space begins with taking a new approach to design elements,” said Becker. “Fluidity, organic movement and rippling water aren’t always associated with the modern aesthetic. Yet, by incorporating these concepts into Sketchbook, we’ve created a way to inspire and enhance modern spaces.”
