Delft corners: where vintage charm and contemporary elegance meet


Delft corners: where vintage charm and contemporary elegance meet

Step into any beautifully designed space and you'll notice, it's the subtle nuances and delicate touches that have the most profound impact. As the popularity of hand painted Delft tiles continues to soar this year, there's a sister style that's been quietly capturing hearts: the decorative Delft corner tile.

More understated than their elaborately painted siblings, these captivating little masterpieces, with their intricate flourishes in that classic blue and white palette, have a way of quietly elevating a space and infusing it with vintage charm.

Classic Delft Floral corners, with their intricate flourishes, add a touch of vintage charm to this kitchen pantry.

It's a magic that's been centuries in the making and a testament to the enduring appeal of Delft. At Marlborough Tiles, we have been painting Delft tiles with decorative corners by hand, in the traditional technique, since we were founded in the 1930s. A dip into our archives last year inspired us to curate a new collection: a range of eight Delft corner designs.

Explore the collection and you’ll discover designs we’ve reinvigorated from those very early days, alongside brand new ones. There’s something for every space - from simple motifs to more elaborate ornamental flourishes. Whether you choose to use Delft corners as a subtle accent or as a captivating focal point, these tiles have a way of transforming a space with delicate detail.
