About TileArt

TileArt is a locally owned business based in Madison, WI, founded in 1998. The owner continually seeks out the finest natural hard surface materials and has focused on representing the best labor-friendly artisan studios that manufacture these materials, utilizing environmentally responsible processes. More than 20 years of collaboration with clients, artists, and building trade associates, combined with experience integrating various materials to create the pathways, borders, transitions, fields, and features, enables TileArt installations to be transformative, functional, and enduring.

The pathway to success is a collaborative design process. You share photos of projects you like, samples of colors, textures, and finishes you enjoy or wish to coordinate with. We schedule the initial meetings or conversations so all stakeholders in your project will be able to contribute. It is important that you share your needs, desires, and parameters, in order to for us to work together to transform ideas into creative, beautiful, and feasible solutions.

Our goal will be to make a unique place where you, your visitors, and other inhabitants may thrive. We'll work together to make the corners, centerpieces, and pathways connect the outside with in and with the larger world. These are TileArt surfaces that perform, keeping destinations alive with artful features where joyful and healthy living comes naturally.
