Custom tile brings dimension and whimsy to the interior of D'Espresso, an espresso bar located in New York City. Inspired by the neighboring Bryant Public Library, the imagery is created by a pattern of 18 different 16- x 16-inch tiles that repeat 36 times across the surface. The custom tiles run along the floor, up the 15-foot wall and across the ceiling. This project is one of several featured in a focus on Interiors in this issue of Contemporary Stone & Tile Design. Design by nemaworkshop, New York, NY. Tile manufactured by Imagine Tile, New York, NY. Story begins on page 28
