Mosaics in films and beyond . . .

They say your profession defines you, it shapes you, but ask any person that deals with tiles and flooring on a daily basis, they will tell you. “We see tile everywhere”. Therefore its not surprising that we are starting to see tiles and mosaics more and more often in blockbuster films, tv shows and much more. Come to think of it, unique flooring, intricate porcelain installation and even exotic counter tops have become a staple for today’s Hollywood set designers. So lets take a look at some of our favorites and we welcome you to share some “hidden tile” gems you have come across the silver screen.
First up is Netflix’s Jessica Jones. One of our favorite comic book investigator, comes to life in this hit show and the producers have spared no expensive in creating a classic New York apartment hallway with Bistro style vintage mosaics and a matching Greek Key mosaic border. Who wouldn’t want to see that floor every time you step out of your apartment.
Next we have a not so big success of a movie, but Push, starring Chris Evans and Dakota Fanning, gave us some pretty cool CGI action scenes and an overall fun fantasy ride that certainly entertained us. Perhaps all visual and not so much plot, what did stand out are all the cool tile and glass mosaics shown throughout the movie. Shot mostly in Hong Kong, almost every interior scene is filled to the brim with mosaics, adding a sense of techno and modernism to the plot. Not too crazy about the movie, but loved the mosaics!
We saved the best for last. What can be said about the intricate and over top kitchen design in the film Mr. and Mrs. Smith. Filled to brim with Oceanside’s glass mosaics, the kitchen design proved to be a bigger hit than Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie combined. What do you think?
