Modern Look for a Modern Home


Modern Look for a Modern Home

This February was quite exciting for us at Wausau Tile, as we got to partake in this year’s Modernism Week in Palm Springs, CA. Our Series Sesto™ terrazzo tile was featured throughout the entire showcase house, Mesa Modern. This featured house – 3,200 square foot home situated on a 24,000 square foot lot – is nestled along the base of Mount San Jacinto in the Palm Springs neighborhood of Mesa. With interior designer Michelle Boudreau of Michelle Boudreau Design producing the overall vison of the home and John Feldman, Principal of Ecocentrix Landscape Architecture designing the exterior landscapes, Palm Spring’s luxury indoor-outdoor lifestyle was created.

The design inspiration of the newly-created Mesa Modern estate was to capture the views of the nearby mountains in every room and integrate the home into the desert landscape. Bringing exceptional design to the desert, the interior atmosphere was carefully crafted with unique details, shapes and dimensional textures that had inspiration from the sculptural mountains and graphic nature of desert plants.

The Mesa Modern home featured new international artists and artisans as well as local talents, including Wausau Tile and our new Series Sesto™. Paying tribute to the Longinotti Group and its home of Sesto Fiorentino, a municipality in Florence, Italy where the Longinotti Group is located, Series Sesto™ uses large size aggregates for both indoor (terrazzo tile) and outdoor (paver) applications. With the unique look and durability of this tile, Series Sesto™ fit perfectly in the desired look and feel throughout the Mesa Modern home.

A huge thank you to Karen Okner who produced and assembled the team that worked to finish this inspiring home. We would also like to thank Michelle Boudreau and John Feldman who permitted our tile to be a part of their masterpiece. Also, thank you to Manolo Langis and Bethany Nuart for the beautiful photography of this modern home. Finally, thank you to Ginger Wells, Wausau Tile’s Arizona, Southern California and Southern Nevada Sales Representative, for working with the entire Mesa Modern team to ensure that our terrazzo tile was given a spotlight in this amazing opportunity.
