The Story of Modwalls Tile

Modwalls Tile Company Founders
Hello and welcome to Modwalls Tile Company!
My husband David Bousfield and I founded Modwalls in 2005.
After having difficulity finding the tile we envisioned for our own home remodeling projects, we decided to design our own. That led us to start a tile company, or as we often refer to it, a candy store.
Everywhere we looked, there was a sea of beige tile and stone but none of the colorful modern tile we'd hoped to find.
We suspected we weren't alone and that others would be having the same frustration in finding the perfect tile.

Our goals for Modwalls:

To use my love of mid-century modern design and architecture to inform the creation of fresh modern tile designs in colors not available anywhere else.
To offer our tile via a hassle free online buying experience with a high level of direct service as well.
To make every customer feel as if they are our only customer.
To honor every order whether large or small, and appreciate each time a homeowner or company spends their hard earned money to purchase the tile we've created.

Lush glass subway tile David and I used our experience from Silicon Valley tech companies to create one of the first online tile stores. We design our own tile collections and colors, then manufacture them in the best facilities we can find.
We quickly connected with like minded customers who helped us the grow and get noticed. In our first year in business we were profiled in Sunset Magazine and featured in Dwell and Atomic Ranch magazines. They really helped to launch our company and we're grateful.
Now 12 years later, Modwalls is flourishing with fantastic customers including Architects, Interior Designers and Builder who are specifying Modwalls tile for their residential, hospitality, hotel and restaurant projects. Along the way we've pushed the boundaries of tile styles and colors through design partnerships including RexRay Studio, Clayhaus and Vetrazzo, with more in the works.

We partner with talented American makers to produce the majority of our unique tiles that I design here in California.

If you don't see exactly what you want just bring us your ideas. We can customize many of our tile collections to help you execute your vision.


Our team, The Mod Squad, has been together for years and we're dedicated to making your experiences with us both fun and successful.

In a recent article about top tile companies for The Spruce, Lee Wallender writes this about us:

    "Modwalls has become a force to be reckoned with.

Only a few years old, this online-only Aptos, CA based company designs and manufactures its own tile, all with a modern bent.

With most tile companies, you have to hunt and forage for cool, unique tiles; but with Modwalls, cool and unique is business as usual."

I'm glad you've discovered us and look forward to the opportunity to work with you!

Thank you,

Rebecca Lonergan
