All that Glitters

Posted by on October 26, 2011 in Products | 22 comments

It was impossible to miss the SICIS showroom on Broome Street as I hustled there early last week for a viewing; indeed, just days before I had wandered by on my own and marveled at the glittering mannequins, covered in mosaic tile and glistening in the second-floor windows. The three-floor showroom showcases the impressive range of capabilities of the Italy-based "art factory"; from paintstakingly hand-cut to sleek water-cut designs; from plush furniture with mosaic detailing to “digital”-looking cityscapes to my personal favorite, a gorgeously appointed bathroom decked out in mosaic tile made with gold leaf.

The most surprising part, however—and I must admit, this is news to me—is the variety of options and price-points SICIS can offer. The glamour and sophistication of mosaic design is not just for those with an unlimited budget; the possibilities and options are almost endless. Whether you’re looking for a statement wall, an eye-catching lamp, or an entire floor done in classic hand-cut marble mosaic; whether your project has a traditional, modern, or eclectic theme; there's something there for everyone. For an even better idea of their offerings, head over to the SICIS showroom yourself—meanwhile, I'll be working on getting my all-gold bathroom.


Ikebana 14 Okuni, from the SICIS Orientale collection, is made from hand-clipped mosaic chips of glass and precious metal.


Part of the SICIS Skyline collection, this piece incorporates a "pixel" technique—but it's actually hand-laid mosaic chips of multicolored glass.


  1. Finished listening to The Borrower, by Rebecca Makkai, in the car. It's sort of a light book about this 10-year kid, really smart, precocious, possibly gay, who gets attached to this librarian – and gets the librarian to collaborate in a journey halfway across the country. A little strange, but good book. Interestingly, borrowed this at the recommended reading rack in the library.
