Victoria Baths Collection
Tile Giant is proud to announce a new collection inspired by one of the most iconic buildings in the UK - Manchester's Victoria Baths.
Launched in December 2018, the new collection includes 50 new tiles varying in size and style and spanning across seven colour schemes. Like the Baths themselves, the unique range features a whole host of hues from deep glazed green designs to rich terracotta and ochre colours and more.
The Bevel Teal tile is perfectly suited to jazz up a plain, boring bathroom and works excellently when paired with patterned tiles such as our Seaford Marine. The combination of teal tones and decorative patterning is stereotypically Victorian, though can be easily styles to your taste to give a beautiful, modern twist on this beloved building.
Our Bevel Mustard tile was created with the charming exterior of the Victoria Baths in mind and so came the birth of the vibrant, happy orange shade. Representing joy, freshness and energy, this is a great tile to add into many places in the home creating positivity within each space.
Style with black and white furnishing to create a dramatic contrast to the orange and really let the colour do the talking.
Bevel Vintage Green
Our final favourite pick we thought to mention is our Bevel Vintage Grenn tile, probably the one that best represents the mesmerising interior of Victoria Baths. In a truly unique green emerald, this shade can be originally found in the stairways of the Baths, decorating bannisters, outlining the archways and more. Today, we suggest adding it into your kitchen, an en-suite or similar.
Pair with deeper greens, bright golds or purples to bring extra colour to the room in a complementary way.
About Victoria Baths
Described as Manchester’s “Water Palace”, Victoria Baths first opened its doors in 1906 but closed in 1993. Since then, its part-restoration has enabled the space to be open to the public as a heritage visitor attraction, events venue and a location for many TV and film productions. The long-term aim is to reopen the building back to its former glory and we’re proud to back the campaign by contributing a percentage of each tile sold from the range back to the Victoria Baths Trust.
James Heese, managing direct of Tile Giant, says: “Our designers spent time on site at Victoria Baths to soak in the very best in this classic British design. When you walk through the doors of the Baths, you are transported to another era of elegance. The Edwardian design and architectural inspiration of this new range will mean that homeowners will feel a sense of stepping into history while maintaining design that translates into modern day living.”
