Aug. 6, 2007 - PRLog -- A technique popular in 19th century tile production, tube lining is the process of hand filling a raised design with deep areas of rich glaze colour. The resulting effect is vibrant, clearly defined, three-dimensional designs in deep and vivid shades. Using the same methods and techniques to produce tiles indistinguishable from their 19th century originals, Temple Trading produces a stately range of period style tiles, murals and interior accessories.

Individually hand crafted, the tiles are produced by an original British tile factory that fell into disuse 50 years ago. A major restoration project has breathed new life into the factory, thanks to the public’s growing affinity for Victorian England period style interior design.

Temple Trading’s collection includes a wide array of patterned and plain antique finish tiles. Finished with a unique antique glaze recipe, the tiles have a deep crackled appearance, and come in a range of sizes, from 6x6 inch standard square, 3x6 inch horizontal rectangle or round.

There is an abundance of patterns and designs to choose from, ranging from plain, understated natural hues - ideal to harmonize against stronger interior decoration, intricate symmetrical patterns in vibrant blues, greens, plums and reds, and subtle autumnally shaded designs. The popular panels and murals are decorated with ornate bird, flower and fruit motifs, and are also available with a dark wood frame, perfect as a stand-alone item to lift a lifeless wall.

An art nouveau and modern floral range introduces a more contemporary option, but maintaining the authenticity of the antique finish. The handsome selection offers something for all tastes, from delicate shades, to deep plums and greens, to fresh bright uplifting colours.

Completing the collection is an assortment of ornamental, but functional, home accessories – ideal for unusual gifts ideas. Featuring Temple Trading’s stunning tiles framed in plush dark wood, the choice includes jewellery and treasure boxes, coat hooks, letter racks, wall plaques, and mirrors.

Over 50 different designs and patterns of tube line tiles are available at affordable prices. See the full collection at http://www.templetrading.co.uk
