When it comes to the history of American Decorative Art, Henry Francis du Pont is a name to know. Born in a (comparably modest) 30-room Delaware home by the name of Winterthur, his love of horticulture and delight in the decorative arts was nurtured into what became a 175-room museum devoted to the two. To this day, Winterthur continues to showcase du Pont’s unparalleled investment in the preservation of over 90,000 design objects, as well as over 1000 acres of surrounding nature and gardens.
Our Winterhouse tile, created specifically for du Pont’s more private winter residence, was commissioned by Ellen Hanson Designs and Pansy Bayou Design Studio as a nod to the collector’s keen love of art, design, and nature.
Shown here in Verde Militar, Chocolat Asia, Verde Canada, Sage, and Adobe.

Classic Pattern for Any Space
Also known as Cuban tile or mosaico hidraulico, these bright, long lasting tiles are made by layering mixtures of Portland cement, marble powder, and natural pigments into a mold. Cement tiles are completely natural in both content and process, and became popular in the 19th century for their cool, fresh feel in hot weather. These beauties can be found all over the world–from Barcelona’s promenades and Moroccan homes, to Parisian galleries and classic New York buildings.
Hand crafted with 100% natural materials, cement is suitable on the floor, on the wall, indoors and out. Made to last a lifetime, they are ideal for both residential and commercial applications. Cement tiles are completely recyclable, and are water-cured as opposed to fired. Each piece is handmade to order, which means color can be customized to suit your space.
