All about the Heritage™ Tiles- Geometric collection!


Our Heritage™ collection is a classic and has always been a favourite amongst architects and interior designers! “Equal to the world’s best” was the motto. Many princely residences were tiled by the Bharat Tiles Company for their Highnesses - the Maharajas of Bansda, Bikaner, Gwalior, Jodhpur, Kolhapur. Umaid Bhavan Palace still retains them and so do many others. Even the British could not resist using Bharat’s ‘Swadeshi’ tiles in their Governors’ houses, Universities, the Mint, and other public buildings!

Our tryst with a heritage back to the year 1999, when in order to contribute to the heritage conservation movement, we restored original moulds and processes and introduced an expanded range of pattern tiles, under the name Heritage™  tiles.

1999 also happened to be the year that the Kala Ghoda Arts festival was held for the first time, with the aim of making Kala Ghoda the art district of Mumbai and preserving its rich architectural heritage. Bharat’s Heritage™ range was re-launched at a special exhibition at the festival. Architects and interior designers were delighted to see Bharat Floorings & Tiles revive original processes to create beautiful floors that once marked India’s most cherished buildings.
Our Heritage™ Tiles are part of the Heritage Gallery & Interpretation Centre at CST Mumbai. We have also contributed to several landmark restorations; the Cathedral & John Connon School, the Salar Jung Museum and Mumbai’s oldest museum, the BhauDaji Lad Museum. Iconic buildings across the country are now being restored by India’s leading architects who invariably choose our timeless, elegant and durable Heritage™ tiles. Bharat Floorings and Tiles has received several awards from UNESCO for Cultural Heritage Conservation.
 Bharat’s Heritage™ tiles have a vast range of sub-categories classified into distinct collections based on their designs, patterns and usage. The classic Geometrique collection is part of the timeless HeritageTM collection and is one of the preferred choices amongst interior designers, architects and consumers alike.

Strong, bold lines, focused themes with definite shapes are a few key features that make the Geometrique collection a perfect choice for commercial as well as personal spaces. Be it for a bathroom or an office space, tiles from the Geometrique collection are sure to contribute to creating a stunning floor that will suit any taste or mood.

These artistic tiles need not be confined to floors and can be used on walls as well, to create a unique look and highlight a specific area. Using contrasting colours for the flooring, walls and other elements of the house creates an appeal that is both inviting and mesmerizing.

Tiles from the Geometrique collection offer various options through a combination of colour and designer patterns. Tiles from our different collections can be mixed and matched with the Geometrique collection, to create a unique look.

Tiles from the Geometrique collection have been used to create beautiful floors at various sites across the country. Here’s a glimpse at a few sites:

The Nutcracker, Mumbai-

The Sunshine pattern from the Geometrique collection has been used in shades of black, white and grey at this charming all day cafe in Mumbai. The pattern blends seamlessly into the cafe’s cosy industrial aesthetic. The combination of geometric black and white cement floor tiles and beautiful wood furniture creates a unique and welcoming setting at the cafe. Tiles in subtle colours blend perfectly with the interiors of any space. They can transform a standard, traditional space into a chic and elegant one. This is a look that works well in cafes, offices and apartments alike. 



Bangalore Clubhouse -

Creating pops of colour, sparkle and strong depth within a space is a must, especially if the style and aesthetic of the space is contemporary and modern. The colourful and vibrant Windmill and Flowers pattern used at the Clubhouse at Bangalore is elegant and timeless. The chunky Geometrique tile pattern of this design contributes to the relaxed vibe of the beautiful and charming clubhouse.


Lounge bar Loft 38, Bangalore-

The Geometric, Orient pattern used is a classy and understated fashion. While some rely on vivacious colour, others stick to good old ‘black and white’ to get the job done! The classy colour never goes out of fashion and always stays in trend. Those familiar with Bharat Floorings patterns and designs would recognise this one in an instant.


Radisson Blu Hotel, Goa –

The bar at the Radisson Blu Hotel in Goa has a cheery Sunshine Yellow Windmill™ floor designed by Nitin Parulekar (NPAPL). The pattern creates a look that’s a great balance between contemporary and vintage. This pattern is sure to have an impact on any who visits the bar and is not easy to forget.



Mayfair Group of Restaurants –

Star Pattern; Star and Stripes Pattern and Scallop border in Terracotta Red, Jaisalmer Yellow and Black from our Heritage Collection. Some bright colours to brighten up the hotel! It’s always a good idea to highlight the space with some bold colours and prints, and especially in Hotels to make the space look welcoming and attractive. The star and diamond is one pattern which is loved and recognized by interior designers. It is used in this beautifully designed restaurant at Mayfair Group of Hotels in Bhubaneshwar. The selected choice, Star and diamond pattern from the Geometrique Collection of Heritage™ tiles was a no-brainer. This pattern is an all-time favourite and can never go out of style.





Tiles from the Geometrique Collection with their rich colours and unique patterns are sure to blend beautifully with any space. Select the right pattern and colour combination and experience a transformation in your floor, making it a work of art.

  6. Deck Wood Flooring India is usually derived from a variety of hardwoods hewn from a solid chunk of timber. The material can be used essentially in every room of the house except in a full bathroom. Quality real wood adds a distinct touch to any formal living room, dining room, or bedroom. It also works well with traditional, modern, contemporary, and other decorating styles.
