Membland Stair Risers

Membland is an excellent candidate for stair risers, especially as statement tiles in a foyer. Risers are *usually* six inches high, so depending on the number of steps, the full mural, a half panel, or accent / border tiles would work on stair risers. It would be nice if all stairs were at least 36 inches wide, but they are not, especially in some older homes. In such cases, tumbled marble tiles are closer to 5.9 inches than 6 inches and this may be an acceptable workaround for some installations.

About Membland

Six of a unknown number of Membland panels survive. These panels have had broken tiles replaced and therefore do not match up in color or dimension, as did the original Morris and Co. panels.
