A LITTLE BIT ABOUT BYZANTINE DESIGN...

What began with a desire to become an archaeologist developed into a career of this time and world for Dara Shashoua. A lover of beautiful relics from a young age, Dara has spent over 17 years in the tile and stone industry, working with interior designers and clients to fill their homes with perfect tiling.

Mad for texture, colour and print, Byzantine Design began as Dara’s bathroom design business while working for other companies, but as her business grew, she was more able to re-focus on her one true love - stone and tiles.

But it has not been without its hurdles. Diagnosed with Multiple-Sclerosis early on in starting her business, Dara built a strong team around her and soldiered on, unwilling to give up her dreams to something out of her control. The result? a burgeoning business filled with whimsy and magic, but laid on the foundations of practicality and purpose.

With her right hand women Cathy and Eve, Byzantine Designs is making a name as a leader in sourcing unique and beautiful tiles from all over the globe, from beautiful mosaics and terracotta, to patterned, stone and subway tiles, Byzantine are at home in your kitchen, laundry, bathrooms, feature entry, courtyard, patio, or just about anywhere you can dream up a little extra colour and energy!

Byzantine Designs don’t just sell tiles and stone - they make a living telling the stories of the tiles, that in turn become a part of the story of the client.
