NEW YORK, NY -- Avenue Mosaic, a design centric practice with a high-touch approach bringing uniquely innovative tile and mosaic designs to the U.S. and global markets, recently introduced two new collections: Streamline and Jazz Fusion.

Streamline is "smooth to the touch and glossy to the eye," according to company. The sculptured shape of new cars inspired the design of this tile collection, which features raised curves both in shape and dimension, and creates an interlocking effect and an exploration of the negative shapes between each tile. Available in four colorways, Steamline is recommended for interior walls.

As with the art form of Jazz music, the pattern of Jazz Fusion -- as seen in the photo -- is a carefully planned, yet a delightfully random design. "The shapes and pattern of these tiles mimic the staff and bar lines of sheet music upon which a composition of beamed and bar notes are placed," according to the company. "The flowing colors within the tiles create the melody and the random metallic tiles are likened to hitting the high note." Available in five colorways, Jazz Fusion is recommended for interior walls and low traffic floors.

Avenue Mosaic entered the home furnishings industry in January 2010. Founder and creative director, Michael R. Golden -- who has worked for reputable companies in the industry such as Crossville, Florida Tile and Walker Zanger -- brought a fresh approach to mosaic design, carefully analyzing global color and fashion trends before adding his own unique sense of style to create products specifically for the U.S. market. Many of the original Avenue Mosaic offerings quickly became industry standards and continue to be today.

In early 2013, Avenue Mosaic expanded its focus, providing design and finished product to leading companies in the home furnishings industry. Domestic and global companies such as Dune, Crossville and New Ravenna now offer designs created specifically for them by Golden. Avenue Mosaic has quickly grown into a leading design-centric company, with Golden's products now available to consumers from around the world.

Avenue Mosaic brings distinctive, original mosaic designs to the North American and global hard surfaces market -- searching the world for manufacturers of glass, stone, metal and wood, while creating affordable, artisanal products. Avenue's partnerships produce mosaics that reflect the highest quality, skilled design and craftsmanship, and accessible value. For more information, visit www.avenuemosaic.com.
