My mega series of World of Tile wonder continues today with this new set of photos featuring ceramic mirrors… Italian lighting… decorative sinks… and faucets. World of Tile has an entire, HUGE room dedicated to these fixtures — this could be a store all its own! Most all of these were imported from Italy, in the 1970s and 1980s, I’d say. If I had a home built in the 70s or 80s that needed bathroom updates, I’d be all over these new old stock bathroom fixtures. A matching brown paisley sink, toilet and mirror set? Heck to the yeah! Oh — the lighting is all Italian GLASS — those aren’t acrylic pieces, folks. Luv. Click on through for the gallery of 30 photos — and that’s only a fraction of the stuff in this room! My head just keeps on spinnin’ –>Heck yeah there is more →

One of the biggest “needs” of owners of mid century homes is: Replacement tile for cracked or broken original tiles in otherwise perfectly beautiful and functional mid century bathrooms. Now that we have discovered World of Tile we have probably the single best place in the nation (so far) where we have a chance to find an authentic vintage match for our 1950s, 1960s, 1970s and even 1980s bathrooms. Heck yeah there is more →
Update: World of Tile closed in 2014. See our story on the liquidation sale (now completed) here.
Announcing the single most exciting discovery on the blog yet: World of Tile — a tile store that opened in Springfield, New Jersey, in 1957 and which is still open today. A lovely story of same-family-ownership small business longevity. But, the big news is that this tile store is chock full of new old stock NOS mint in box MIB vintage tile from the 1950s, 1960s, 1970s, 1980s and 1990s. GORGEOUS tile, and at what I consider very fair prices. You read it first here… !!!GeT Y@Ur T!Le FaSt!!!! — because once the fancy shmancy hotsy totsy New York interior design crowd finds out about this place (that is: starting NOW), they are going to rush on over to New Jersey and, I fear, wipe the place out.Heck yeah there is more →
