A Short History..

In the late 90's Island Stone disrupted the traditional mosaic tile industry with the introduction of the interlocking Perfect Pebble Tiles. 

From these humble beginnings, blossomed a dynamic range of stone mosaics, designed to create seamless surfaces with a distinctly natural appeal.  


Until Today..

Halo Edging is our design team’s innovative method of building modern geometric mosaic tiles, combining the attractive natural shapes of pebbles with pre-cut stone.

This groundbreaking approach defines a perimeter shape by hand placing specially cut stones to create a defined edge and then filling in this frame with full pieces of the same stone. The resulting design creates a geometric halo around the distinctive mosaic shapes.

The tiles create a distinct modern pattern while still featuring the desirable appeal of natural stone mosaics.

We invite you to view both designs on our website as well as in our introductory video below.

Products: Honeycomb Cobbles & Randoms

Our introductory range is a classic hexagonal shaped tile offered in two distinct designs made from popular stones in our Random and Cobble formats.

While identical in outline, the unique personalities of the Cobble’s rounded pieces and Random’s irregularly tumbled shapes result in two versatile designs.
