Walker Zanger announced the expansion of its Studio Moderne Stone collection. Created by noted interior designer Michael Berman, the Studio Moderne Stone extension features four new profiles in 10 variations. The new designs further develop the collection’s homage to the spirit of American modernism, reflecting the Art Deco and Hollywood Regency movements while imparting a softer color palette that’s at home in today’s interiors.

“It’s the dialogue between past and present that inspires my new designs for Walker Zanger. I love the versatility the new collection offers designers, from feature walls to kitchens and baths to bar fronts and beyond,” said Berman. “This fresh take on dimensional marble tiles and mid-scale mosaics complement the graphic silhouettes in the original Studio Moderne Stone collection.”

Erika Egede-Nissen, Walker Zanger director of marketing, added, “Walker Zanger is proud to be working with Michael Berman once again to collaborate on a new iteration of our popular Studio Moderne Stone collection, developing beautiful natural stone mosaics in tactile designs.”

Named after the California college town noted for its bungalow architecture, “Claremont” is an updated hexagonal bungalow tile with stylish form and timeless function. With the “Monarch” design, Berman utilized an interlocking octagon-and-square design reminiscent of the regal looks of European chateaux, hence its royal name. The profile “Parliament” is named after the houses of parliament in Europe and features an elongated linear rhomboid.

The tile patterns are fabricated into geometric shapes by water-jet, cut from selected slabs of fine marbles sourced in Europe, carved from solid blocks then meticulously hand-finished. The Studio Moderne Stone extension is a part of the new Curated Elegance collection by Walker Zanger, which includes three separate tile collections that take natural stone to a new level of grandeur. The collections’ colors work in harmony to deliver a sophisticated design experience.
