Modern Barkitecture

Dog House 4.jpgOne of the best things we can do as animal lovers is to provide safe environments for our pets. Lunada Bay Tile teamed up with Tile Council of North America and an Atlanta pet charity at Coverings – The Global Tile & Stone Experience where exhibitors are donating one-of-a-kind tiled doghouses.

For this year’s modern dog house, Lunada Bay Tile intended to provide Instagram-worthy style and shelter from the midday sun. The roof and side walls showcase the striking architectural shapes of Ka-nū Keel ceramic tile in Harbor Blue, which feature a lustrous, subtly pearlized glaze. The front and back walls are a combination of Ka-nū Buoy Mosaic in Sandbar, Harbor Blue, and Sea Kelp, and the house is trimmed in Ka-nū Plank 1-3/4 x 9-3/4 in Sea Kelp. It was fun to design this project with Ka-nū, which will be available through authorized Lunada Bay Tile dealers later this year.

The Lunada Bay Tile doghouse will join others donated by fellow TCNA members and will be on display during Coverings in the TCNA Art Tile Courtyard (booth #7249). Following the show, all doghouses will be donated to the Homeless Pets Foundation, a 501(c)3 organization that saves the lives of homeless cats and dogs in Atlanta area animal shelters and promotes the benefits of pet ownership.

See all that Lunada Bay Tile has to offer at Coverings booth 8062, May 8-11 in Atlanta.
