About Us

At Original Style we have been producing tiles in Exeter, Devon since 1986. Using a combination of quality raw materials, traditional techniques alongside new technology, and a skilled and dedicated work force we produce ceramic wall tiles and mouldings in classic designs and beautiful translucent colours.

We are also renowned for our Victorian floor tiles, originally designed to co-ordinate with our traditional wall tiles. Over the years we have expanded our portfolio to offer collections of natural stone tiles, glass tiles, splashbacks and mosaics, as well contemporary porcelain tiles in large formats. All of these and more are stocked in our Tile Showrooms in Exeter, Plymouth and now in our latest large and contemporary showroom in Cheltenham.  

A brief history of Original Style and our Tile Showrooms

Original Style was initially set up in 1986 to develop tiles for cast iron fireplaces. However it soon became apparent that tiles were being used for more than just fireplaces, particularly in America, where they begin appearing on the walls in the luxury bathrooms of Hollywood stars! So we developed a range of Victorian style tiles specifically for walls.

Not long after we created the Victorian floor tile collection to complement the ever-popular wall tile range. During the 1990s the company continued to grow and expand our portfolio of products, manufacturing on-site and also offering collections of natural stone, glass and mosaics.

We opened a local tile factory superstore in Exeter to sell 'seconds', tiles that do not quite meet our rigorous standards for first class products. A second shop in Plympton followed in 2003. In 2015 we expanded our offer outside Devon to open our store in and most recently in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire.

Now we don’t just sell seconds. Although there are many bargains to be had still, all three outlets now stock and sell materials and accessories for tiling projects as well as huge choice of high quality wall and floor tiles and mosaics in glass, stone, ceramic and porcelain, all suitable for residential locations, and most of them can be used in commercial settings too.
