Product Overview

Old-world European elegance radiates from the Merola Tile Kings Star Nero Encaustic 17-5/8 in. x 17-5/8 in. Ceramic Floor and Wall Tile imported from Spain. Save time and labor spent arranging smaller square tiles and instead install these durable ceramic slabs, which have four 8-3/4 in. squares separated by scored grout lines. The defining feature of this encaustic-inspired tile is the unique, low-sheen glaze in beige tones with centered black stars in each square. Variation throughout each tile mimics an authentic aged appearance. Designed by interior architect and furniture designer Francisco Segarra, this tile is a true reflection of vintage industrial design. Realistic imitations of scuffs and spots that are the marks of well-loved, worn, century-old tile bring rustic charm to your interior. There are 9 different variations available that are randomly scattered throughout each case. The scored grout lines can be grouted with the color of your choice or left un-grouted for a rugged finish.

I paired this tile with its contrasting white star on blue tile as part of a master bath remodel and it is stunning. Hefty size and weight that paired well with light grey grout.
Beautiful heavy tile!

        The Perfect Tile for My Dream Home
        We just built our dream home on our farm and this tile was exactly what I wanted to give me the vintage (yet modern) farmhouse look that we wanted. While some questioned my choice and the color, as you can see it turned out beautifully and for us it is perfect! I just wanted to share because there isn't a lot of photos with this color of this tile. Home Depot was also excellent to buy from. One case came in broken and they returned it and ordered us another case with no questions asked. Highly recommend.

          I purchased this tile to be installed on my brick fireplace hearth in our renovation of a 1973 ranch. It ultimately made the den come together. It is aged in appearance, but pairs nicely with a newly painted (medium gray) fireplace and new stained mantle. We are in the process of actually trimming it out in matching stained wood around the edges of the tile. It all works so very well. I love it.

            I recently had my fireplace remodeled and used these tiles and grout that is pecan color. I also chose a mantle available on this website - Savannah 72 in. x 9 in. Taos cap-shelf Mantel by Pearl Mantels. I love how it all turned out.

              STUNNING TILES!
              These tiles are absolutely gorgeous and make a huge statement in a room! Used them for a smaller main floor bath and they have gotten so many compliments. Install was easy and the tiles cut well. I’ve received so many compliments on these and just love them. The vintage and almost used vibes that they give off are just what I wanted. Very eclectic tiles. A bonus that they hide debris easily! Don’t mind the missing trim, we are still putting the bathroom back together but I wanted to write a raving review ASAP! I would highly recommend these they are the perfect addition to my mid century modern home.

                  Great looking tile. The only issue was we should have taken all the tile out of the boxes and looked at it. One box was a bit lighter in color.

                  Absolutely love this tile. We used it in our entryway and I could not be more pleased. We did end up using bright white grout which in my opinion really makes the tile pop! We used non-sanded grout because the actual tile itself has embedded grout lines which we had to fill in as well. So pretty!

                  The Happiest Laundry Room
                  We absolutely love this time. It's heavy, so the most difficult thing for me was moving it from my trunk to the floor. I laid this by myself and other than the weight it was easy to put cut and put down. I installed the tile in February, so we've had several months of use. It's great for the laundry room because it's not slippery at all. It is beautiful and looks amazing with the cabinets and appliances in the room. I'd highly recommend this tile. I love it so much I'll likely be using something by the same company in my bathroom, a rear entryway, and my kitchen backsplash.

                    Another super pretty tile by Merola this is "King's Star Blue Encaustic. These are BIG tiles and very attractive. Given an "aged" look to perfection. Really nice color combination as well. These tiles are also incised with sort of a "grout line". This makes for a great cutting guide should you need to adjust for fit. Just keep in mind that these faux grout lines are sort of a tera cota color, so choose your grout colors accordingly. This pretty tile would. I think look well in almost any decor. Overall. it's a yes from me.

                    I ordered this tile pattern to go on the floor in a bathroom where I’ll be using the same pattern wall tiles that are not distressed. The two look amazing together! These tile are very large so a bit difficult to cut with a score cutter so I would recommend a wet saw. They are thick and well made. They came very well packaged with no damage. I love the variations in the tile so not every one looks exactly the same.

                    So chic, yet timeless!
                    This tile is awesome! It was my first time tiling and while such a large tile had its challenges, it is nice to have less tiles to lay. It has some shallow grout lines already, so go ahead and order some rust-colored grout (you’re unlikely to find it in store) for a really seamless look.

                      These tiles are made in Spain so you can have something from the old world without having to spend the time and money to go there. I was very impressed by the weight of each tile and how they give the impression of having been made a long time ago. These are glazed ceramic tiles and the 17 5/8 inch squares cover a lot of space. I love the blue color against the white background.

                      The Merola Tile, Kings Star Blue Encaustic right out of the box looks amazing, either as an accent space or an entire room I really like it. I saw some of the pictures on the reviews and since I recently changed the hood above my range and left a lot of small holes on that wall, I decided to place the ceramic on that wall, I still have to do some finish touches but overall it looks great. It is warm and welcoming, and I think it would be perfect for almost any space. It does look worn out to give it an aged look on the edges and all around. The tiles are of high quality and are easy to clean really nice detail on every tile.

                      This is a ceramic floor or wall tile by MEROLA TILE model # FPESTRB in Kings Star blue and white low sheen. The individual tiles are 17 5/8 " by 17 5/8 " and each tile is designed to look like 4 smaller tiles. A case of tiles is 5 of the large tiles covering 11.02 sq. ft. and looking like 20 smaller tiles. The tiles are made in Spain and came well packaged and protected against damage. The tiles are designed in a varied distressed worn look with a blue pattern on a white background and make a floor or wall of the tiles look older and more architectural.We like the older/worn look of these tiles which can be used on both floors and walls. A 11.02 sq. ft. case of tiles was priced at $84.74 in March of 2020 and I would recommend them.

                      Merola made my tile dreams come true
                      I searched high and low for tile and fell in love with the entire Merola line! We have 5 young boys and it’s easier to shop online. I bought this without seeing it in person and had it shipped to the store. We used more decorative tile as well as white matte subway, hexagon and penny tile. We used only Merola tile throughout our entire farmhouse reno. We love it all!

                        This tile looks beautiful installed. It has a worn and weathered look to it, but that is what I was looking for. I was worried about buying online, in that something as fragile as tile would be easily broken. Well, this tile was packaged standing on edge, and not one tile arrived broken. By the way, Home Depot had the best price by far, for this tile.
