Handmade Tiles & Pendants in San Francisco

Peek at this pristine home in San Francisco designed by EAG Studio! The small team at this California design firm guides their clients’ interests every step of the way, ensuring true craftsmanship that unifies their thoughtful and sophisticated aesthetic. EAG Studio teamed up with Fireclay Tile to complete this stunning kitchen and bathroom renovation.

Suggesting hints of industrial style, the kitchen gets a bohemian touch with Fireclay Tile’s Paseo tile in White Gloss. This chic backsplash offers a subdued, yet powerful contour along the perimeter of the appliances and countertops.

Featuring modern open shelving, the tastefully stacked glassware and warm woodgrain stand out against the clean white backdrop.

Above the center island are a bold variety of Niche Pendants – the Pod in Sapphire, Oculo in Gray, Pharos in Crystal, and Stamen in Chocolate. While quite the mixed bunch, they certainly play nice with this kitchen’s characteristics – from the wood grain and dishware, to the artwork and fixtures.

Similar to Niche’s handmade in New York mantra, Fireclay Tile prides themselves in being handmade in California! All of their tile is eco-friendly and sustainable, containing 60% recycled materials. It’s great to see quality, handmade products made on opposite coasts of the USA come together! Moving into the bathroom is Fireclay Tile’s Ogee Drop tile in Turquoise and Hexagon tile in Morning Glory Matte.

Pantone Color of the Year: Marsala


Pantone, the leading technologists for accurate communication of color, recently announced their 2015 Color of the Year, Marsala! The color is described as “naturally robust” and perfect for enriching mind, body, and soul. The bold, impactful shade can make for a solid statement color on its own, or pair with a variety of colors as an accent. From earthy to elegant, Marsala is nurturing and fulfilling, ideal for tasteful and sophisticated accessories throughout your home and wardrobe. Team Niche is excited to find that our signature translucent glass color, Plum, encompasses the same energy Pantone has captured with Marsala. Raise a glass of marsala wine to 2015’s hottest hue! Cheers!

The Plumen Bulb 002 is here!


At long last, we have Plumen 002 bulbs in stock after much anticipation! Both 120v and 240v options are now available to ship. This low-energy, sculptural bulb pairs perfectly with our new Crystalline Series pendants. Plumen wanted to create a less-bright bulb for “ambient, wind-down rooms and spaces, places where warmer tones define a softer and cozier atmosphere.” We couldn’t have said it better ourselves! Contact our sales team at to order yours today!

Plum Pendant in Pittsburgh!

For over 40 years, the Pittsburgh area has relied on Eddy Homes to build their dream homes. As a family-operated business, they focus on creating interiors where families can work, play, and grow together. Their reputation in the architectural community is built on high standards for quality craftsmanship, individual care and detail provided to each stage of the building process.

Inspired by a honeymoon in the South Pacific, this 4-bedroom home was designed to capture the essence of the tropics. To obtain a true island feel in the middle of suburbia, outdoor ceilings, flooring, and vanities all boast bamboo!

Light from ample windows flood the foyer and transitions towards the living area which also sports large, sunny floor-to-ceiling windows.

In the kitchen, zebrawood base cabinetry complement the gray quartz countertops and the bright white walls and shelving. Frosted glass backsplash adds an elegant trim to the perimeter of the room and emulates falling water one might see in a lush, tropical resort or spa.

Stepping away from the lustrous whites of the kitchen, this powder room demonstrates quite the opposite with gray walls and marble counter top. A single Niche Solitaire Pendant in Plum completes the symmetry of the vanity.

The study finds an equilibrium between whites and grays, employing a soft teal wall color to add to the serenity of the space. This color mimics that of the frosted glass found in the kitchen, integrating the interiors seamlessly.
