Modern tile designs in white and blue colors, inspired by Delfware, bring vintage style into wall decor and help create amazing accent walls which are unique and spectacular. Delftware, or Delft pottery, denotes pottery made in and around Delft in the Netherlands and the tin-glazed pottery made in the Netherlands from the 16th century.
Beautiful wall tiles add luxury and exclusive feel to modern interior design in vintage style. Delftware in the latter sense is a type of pottery in which a white glaze is applied. Usually decorated with metal oxides, Delftware includes pottery objects of all descriptions such as plates, ornaments and gorgeous wall tiles.
Delfts Blauw, or Delft Blue in English, is the brand name hand painted on the bottom of ceramic pieces and wall tiles identifying them as authentic and collectible. Although most Delft Blue borrows from the tin-glaze tradition, it is nearly all decorated in underglaze blue on a white clay body and very little uses tin glaze, a more expensive product.
