Los Angeles, CA
We wanted our first location outside of Sausalito to be more than just a retail location. Our dream scenario consisted of a space that would emphasize the making as much as the displaying of the work as much as the gorgeous end result. And by golly, that's exactly what we got, thanks to our friends at Commune Design.
Each location showcases our dinnerware, tile, and homeware products from like-minded designer/makers around the United States (and beyond). And, like any family, each kid, err, we mean showroom, goes about it in their own way.
Making is a key part of what we do, and whenever possible, we try to bring together showroom and studio. At Heath Los Angeles, we are able to do just that. Our LA studio designs and makes limited edition pieces for our four showrooms, the local design, restaurant and hospitality communities, and for our collaborations with artists.

An integral part of our design process is, of course, inspiration. That’s why we maintain a gallery space where we host shows with artists, makers and thinkers who inspire us, and who we think will inspire our community. Shows and events have included Akio and Friends (a show with acclaimed Japanese ceramist Akio Nukaga), David Mellor, Alabama Chanin, Geoff McFetridge, Ani Kasten, and Brendan Monroe.

If there's a tile project in your horizon, you just might want to swing by the next time you're in the neighborhood. From inspiration boards, backsplashes and tabletop installations you'll get to touch and feel Heath tile and discover a world of beautiful options. Then, sit down with one of our Tile specialists, talk about what you're interested in, and together you can explore some truly inspiring ideas from around the world.
Bring your clients, or just yourself. Either way, we're available — 7 days/week during regular showroom hours.
