The tile fireplace surround images featured here showcase a present-day collection of striking fireplace tile designs inspired by the Arts and Crafts Movement of more than a century ago . . . . .

. . . . . Undoubtedly, the founders of the movement would very much applaud the extraordinary work of their successors!
The finely crafted fireplace design pic-
tured at left is from Debey Zito Fine Furniture and Design, based in the San Francisco Bay Area of California, USA. Debey works with many artisans in her interior work, as in this exquisitely de-
signed project. Note how the tile de-
sign surrounding the firebox opening echos the beautifully hand carved doors concealing a flat screen TV above the mantel shelf.
The striking Arts and Crafts design that follows is from North Prairie Tile-
works, based in Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA. The tile fireplace surround features blue field tile with Rookwood deco tiles and small dark red tile accents.
The handsome fireplace design that follows is from Doty Tile, another firm based in the San Francisco Bay Area. It features beautiful tile from Motawi Tileworks.

The lovely Arts and Crafts design that follows is by Michelle Nelson, an in-
terior design consultant who also collaborated with Doty Tile on the fire-
place design pictured above. Once again, the tile surrounding the firebox opening is from Motawi Tileworks.
The stunning tile fireplace surround at right and in the two images that follow is another design from North
Prairie Tileworks. It features a gargoyle motif, as shown in the close-up of the
relief tile with a white paver glaze at right, as well as the gargoyle head above the center of the firebox opening,
tured below. Dark blue green and rust red field tiles are intricately arranged to create a beautifully contrasting fireplace hearth and surround -- in-
cluding the formation of pilasters with capitals that rise from the the hearth to "support" the mantel shelf. Framing the perimeter of the firebox opening, itself, is a pair of fluted legs support-
ing an elaborately moulded row of tiles across the top of the opening.
Enhancing the architectural interest and visual appeal of this design is its slightly recessed placement in the wall. The complementary decorative scheme of wallpaper and wood moldings that frames it on either side, as well as the finely finished paneling above the mantel shelf, add to the richness of the overall composition.
Departing significantly from the fireplace tile design pictured above is the "Chinese Lattice Fireplace" that follows. Also from North Prairie Tileworks, this understated but elegant design features a bronze patina glaze with dark blue green relief tiles.
And finally, the beautiful tile fireplace surround pictured below is another fine installation by Doty Tile. Inspired by the work of the legendary Greene brothers at the Blacker House (1907) in Pasadena, California, it features handcrafted tiles made by Diane Winters of Winters Tileworks.
