Looking for a Chili's tile table
July 30, 2012 7:37 PM   Subscribe

I picked up 4 Emeco Navy chairs on Craigslist a while back, and I've been trying to find the perfect kitchen table for them. I've determined that said table is probably something along the lines of the tables at Chili's. Where can I get one?

Some searching online leads me to believe that the tile is (was? some people seem to think it's vintage vintage) manufactured by Daltile. Unfortunately, I can't seem to find the designs that Chili's has.

Any tips on where I can find tile in that style? Failing that, is there some sort of restaurant supply company that I can just purchase an actual Chili's table from?

I don't think Daltile sells many brightly colored, patterned tiles anymore. You might have more luck searching sites like Tierra Y Fuego (check both the Ceramic and Mexican sections)

A search term that might help you find what you are looking for is "talavera tile".

Not a match, but maybe an alternative?

That's fantastic. I had no clue this was a style out side Daltile, though that makes perfect sense. Thanks!
