From the aura of old Hollywood glamour to the ever present atmosphere of West Coast elegance, California has a distinct design aesthetic all its own. No one embodies this truth more than one of Mirth Studio’s most recent collaborative designers, Barclay Butera. We’ve teamed up with him to create four new tiles, each with their own unique style, which debuted this spring at High Point Market.
Just as in his brand’s personal design style, a broad range of inspiration influences his tiles. With the twisting filigree of his Sahara print to the demure tones found in Newport, you can add richness to your space without becoming overly feminine. The tile Link is reminiscent of a few Mirth Studio classics while demonstrating his knack for using colors that are both inviting and refined. Reminiscent of classic Hollywood Regency, the Lux tile fills floors with intricate labyrinths of linework.

Since beginning his design firm in Newport Beach in 1994, Barclay Butera has accomplished a staggering amount. Stemming from his success in Newport, he has since opened showrooms in Hollywood and Park City, UT as well as partnered with several of the industry’s biggest producers of luxury home goods.

His enterprises span from lighting to carpets, decorative accents to bedding, and even signature fragrances. The passion in his work lies not only in designing a space, but creating a lifestyle that is both timelessly classic yet full of modern twists. He’s even the author of four coffee table books, filled with guidance and stunning photos.
