Already established as one of his generation’s most in-demand interior designers, Los Angeles based Ryan Saghian has an impressive list of discerning clients and a huge social media following. At the age of only 28 years, his latest collaboration reveals inimitable style with the latest in his Home Collection, in collaboration with the SENSUALE Collection of Terrazzo tiles.

For this project, Saghian partnered with DOMVS Surfaces, a leading supplier of architectural surfaces for hospitality, commercial and residential projects. DOMVS specialises in the largest inventory of premium slabs, tiles, mosaics and engineered wood flooring that is available for immediate delivery.

“Terrazzo was hot in the mid-century modern era and has made such a comeback,” says Saghian.

“We have always loved Ryan’s effortless California modernism style with a twist of opulence,” says Julie Sage, principal at DOMVS Surfaces. “With this collaboration, we wanted to bring to the market a material that was both trending and true to our respective core values. A modern tile that was a work of art and yet portrayed absolute luxury, was just that! Having originated in Italy, Terrazzo is an artisanal labour of love that offers an unlimited colour palette. The SENSUALE Collection was the perfect choice to meet our clients’ needs.”

Signature Saghian style
There is also a Diagonal Blush Bone pattern. The solids include Solid Blush, Solid Bone and Solid Squid. “I’ve become obsessed with this dusty rose pink,” Saghian says, as he articulates his vision. “I’m not a trend follower in terms of the earthy tones. I like to run things through a design filter.” His neutrals are anything but basic – take that sexy blush as a case in point.

He concludes that he must do things in the most Ryan way possible. He loves contrasting with black, such as the Solid Squid tile, for bold juxtaposition. The palette of the tile collection is a great way to create a look that is current, will not get outdated and shows off what he knows best – high contrast.

The names of the patterns in the SENSUALE Collection are inspired by iconic streets in London, and include Carnaby, Strand, Oxford, Shaftsbury and Savile.

“For these tiles, I was inspired by the classic female form – so sensual – as well as the artisanal Azulejo tile work of Portugal and Spain, all reinterpreted in blush and earth tone palettes.”
