Mirrored tiles are tame no more

Ann Sacks is making mirrored tiles with wild prints – including zebra, leopard and python patterns.

The Hermitage collection by Martyn Lawrence Bullard are handcrafted and have an antique look.

The technique pays homage to an 18th-century French decorative art for gilding glass known as verre églomisé; it has mostly disappeared.

With prices starting at $170 per square foot, it’s a product that might be best suited to a small space or area.

The tiles come in 10-by-10-inch or 20-by-20-inch sizes and can be used with grout. www.annsacks.com. Karen Sullivan
