The size and structure of different materials dictate the way that they tend to be treated for use; but who says one must conform to the norm? These WoodSmithe wooden tiles have been beautifully crafted to somewhat unusual dimensions, more often seen in ceramic slabs.

The small and thin rectangles of precisely cut and carefully sanded lumber hardly look like their true material because of this unfamiliar image. They are reminiscent of the interior tiling of subway platforms, bathroom walls or kitchen backsplashes.

A close look will reveal the subtle wood grain pattern to the WoodSmithe wooden tiles and their matte finish gives them a lovely softness. They have been used here to decorate the Handsome Coffee Roasters portable cafe carts with exquisite etched images.
