Want your home to stand out from the crowd? Go for your own customized tiling from The Nile Co., where you can create your own look for walls, flooring and outdoor spaces. One year shy of celebrating its 75th anniversary, Nile Co. - founded in 1942 by pioneering Egyptian industrialist Ibrahim Abdel Hafiz - is one of the largest manufacturers of high-quality cement and terrazzo tiles in Egypt and the region. They have teamed up with Tandem, a boutique design and branding studio in Maadi for their logo and catalog design, and with interior designer, stylist and blogger Soraya Hassan of Binti Home for their Nile Co. revamp this year. Hassan styled and photographed tiles from the Handmade, Mosaico, Outdoor, Quartzite and Single Layer collections for the Nile Co.’s new catalog, which showcases a product range that includes handmade cement tiles, double-layer terrazzo and single-layer tiles, decorative outdoor and pavement tiles, and natural quartzite stone tiles for indoor and outdoor use.[caption id="attachment_544317" align="alignnone" width="620"] Nile Co. tiling beautifully play off Lebanese bistro Tamara’s colorful furnishings, designed by Shewekar Elgharably Design Studio.[/caption]
