Descriptions of Noteworthy Kutner and Zenith Patterns
Deborah Osburn, the founder of clé says of the Kutner pattern: “the talented Analisse Taft of the celebrated Alt for Living design studio presented a line of favorite retro textiles she carefully curated from her vintage textile collections. kutner was the first tile series clé created with Alt for Living for our cement tile collaboration and we’re thrilled to feature this tile in our stock section.
“kutner has become as popular as it is striking. built from 4 different “floating” geometric patterns, your order will receive equal measures of all 4 patterns which enables you to create the combination of your own artistic layout.”
About the Zenith pattern, she says, “this finely delineated pattern has everyone standing up to cheer. with seemingly endless layout possibilities from hypnotically rhythmic to zany/random, zenith has the power to make any space…happy. go ahead. give it a spin. we dare you :)”

“i enjoy melding opposites- creating historical themes using modern technologies or developing current styles made from archaic methods. for me, the process of making tiles is as significant as the finished product. i’m lucky. everyday i get to take those passions and figure out new ways to produce tile from the depths of my tile making inspirations. because i’ve been exploring this for some time, that well of inspiration runs deep. ” – deborah osburn
