Los Angeles, April 4, 2014—It was a time when flight attendants were called stewardesses, and beauty was an actual job requirement. It was when the Rat Pack hopped from New York to Palm Springs for the weekend and when the Beatles, fresh from London, played before the cameras by the Deauville pool in Miami. It was a time when these globetrotters and the style they inspired, popularized in current obsessions such as Mad Men, earned their own name: the Jet Set. Now, Walker Zanger, the world’s most comprehensive stone and tile company, celebrates the Jet Set with its collection of marble tile mosaics of the same name that captures the energy and flair of that storied era, interpreted anew for contemporary tastes.
Jet Set channels mid-century glamour in six different geometric designs—aptly named Starlet, Mai Tai, Oasis, Cabana, Globetrotter, and Poolside—with each available in both warm and cool tones. Field colors include Thasos, Carrara White, Cadet Blue, Mocha, and Café Bruno. The collection reflects the diversity of influences that marked the era, including Moroccan and Asian.
“With the arrival of the new Jet Set collection, designers and homeowners can reimagine designs from this influential design era that everyone is mad about,” notes Walker Zanger Vice President of Design and Marketing, Jared Becker. “Jet Set is one-of-a-kind and brings mid-century modern to residential installations and adds a gorgeous touch to commercial applications as well.”
The new collection is ideal for everything from bathrooms to spas to kitchens to entryways; playing upon the design trends of the patterns of mid-century modern style, these elegant mosaics are as versatile and hip as they are stunning.
Jet Set is available at all 15 Walker Zanger showrooms and authorized dealers nationwide. Prices range from $89 to $144 per square foot.
