Mosaic Monday… Al Fresco.


Put a Pin in It 9.1


They say “things are looking up” and we have to agree. However in

the business we’re in we tend to spend a good portion of our time looking down. At the floor that it. And why would’ t we when there is so much beauty right under foot. Here are a few examples of why each time we walk out the door, We’re Floored!

Mosaic Monday… Cotswald Cream.


From Rabbits to Roku, a Retrospect.

As we continue to celebrate our 60th Anniversary, we thought we would take a look back at one of our favorite kitchens.  We here at Walker Zanger are very fortunate to have working kitchens in some of our showrooms. Other than allowing for some amazing lunch creations, it also lets us  feature our materials in an actual lifestyle setting. Clients can sit at the kitchen island, have a cup of coffee or a glass of wine, and get a feel for how materials might live in their own environments.  Our West Hollywood, or Melrose Showroom

as we like to call it, opened its doors in 1988. At the time, we were very proud of  how avant garde our kitchen looked…

Installed with our original Musa Mandalyn tile, paneled refrigerator doors, and a custom hand painted menagerie on the dishwasher… we were definitely stylin! But as with good design, trends come and go.  As we moved into the 90′s, kitchens became the focal point of in home entertaining. People started traveling more and bringing home the influences of their European experiences. We were right there with our version of  the “Tuscan Kitchen”.

From one of our most popular collections, The Fresco Series, the Pianissimo Verde Liner graced the back splash. With terracotta accents, warm travertine tiles, and a French Limestone island, we brought a bit of Europe into many a stateside kitchen.

As hard as it was to say good bye to the dishwasher bunnies and raised panel doors of the previous 2 decades, we were well into the new millennium and ready for a change. And what a big change it was…

Well ahead of our time for the early 2000′s we choose Calacata Borghini honed white marble for the counter-tops and Lagos Azul limestone for the  now much more contemporary island.  Our then new Roku Glass collection in Sharkskin accented the backslash in soft muted grey tones, and French limestone 12 x 24 pavers graced the floors.

Did we know then that white marble and glass tile would be all the rage in this decade of design? Somehow I have a sneaking suspicion we did.  For during the past 8 years this combo has continued to stay at the top of the kitchen design food chart.

Any thoughts on what the next Melrose kitchen should be?






Grey Matters.




The French say grise; the Spanish, gris; and the English, grey. No matter which language it’s spoken in, grey is a

color that evokes emotion. Whether it be the weathered grey of a beautifully carved door, the contemporary cool grey of a tiled wall, or the soft grey of a cashmere blanket, this hue is the backdrop for all that is elegant, soothing, and sophisticated.  It’s not the new black, or the old brown, but a color that stands on it’s own and has earned it’s place as a mainstay in the world of design and fashion. Whether it be warm grey, cool grey, grey with hints of blue, or grey with a touch of taupe… Grey matters.
