Bert & May's exquisite London studio
It is always a pleasure to hear good news from the Decorex community, especially when it involves the opening of a beautiful new studio. Following on from their first ever appearance at the show this year, Decorex exhibitors Bert & May have now opened a showroom in London, adding to sister company The Reclaimed Tile Company’s established home in York, and quite the showroom at that.

We cannot resist a good showroom opening, and so we hopped over to East London to take a look at their new home. We couldn’t have imagined the wondrous cavern of delight which lay in store for us!
Simply by admiring the beautifully designed front entrance doors and sign, we knew we were in for quite a treat. And, when those doors opened, we found ourselves submersed in a world of beautiful antique tiles, accompanied by some wonderful visual merchandising.
With it’s dim lighting and rustic stripped brick walls, the showroom gives an instant air of authenticity, evoking an atmospheric tone which is perfectly complimented by the main event – the tiles and timbers themselves.
Bert & May bring together a beautifully curated collection of original architectural salvage and design materials, with the new showroom featuring original tiles from their collection, alongside beautiful reclaimed wood and more precious marble pieces, sourced from travels throughout Europe and the Middle East.
Keep a close watch on the blog over the coming months, where we will documenting Bert & May’s journey as their showroom evolves, including interviews with the design team.
