Tiles of stile - Stiles wall tiles

Stiles wall tilesThe ever versatile Resene Lumbersider satin acrylic has become a key element of 'stile', a tile comprised of stretched Hessian coated in various designs using Resene Lumbersider.

Each colour group consists of four stiles, designed to be sold individually to allow customers to mix or repeat tiles as desired. Available in both 200mm x 200mm and 440mm x 440mm sizes, small tiles may be hung in combination with larger tiles for artistic effect.

Expanding the display horizon even further, each 'stile' cleverly features a recessed hole on each side, allowing the tile to be hung four different ways. This hanging versatility allows for even or odd number pairings of colour groups and means that one or more of the same design stile can be hung together for cohesiveness yet perceptively look different from each other.

To get your hands on a stile of your own, visit (Christchurch) Asko Design, Casual & Country, Ballantynes, (Wanaka) Inside Out, (Queenstown) Changes Lifestyle Gallery, (Westport) Heritage Gift World, (Greymouth) Cameo Interior World, (Nelson) Shine (Blenheim) A Cappella and (Motueka) Lime. Will be hitting the North Island soon.
