Lundy P. Wilder, Founder of Technology of Villa Lagoon Tile.

Lundy P. Wilder

As an entrepreneur and world traveler, Lundy fell in love with the patterned cement tile she had seen in Central America and Europe. While designing her Mediterranean-Style waterfront home, "Villa Lagoon", she knew this tile would be the perfect material, and allow her the greatest possible creative expression. At the time, cement tile was little-known, and almost unavailable in the United States. Recognizing the new value she could share, "Villa Lagoon Tile" was born, and Lundy became a leader in the U.S. revival of cement tile.

Rusty Dillon, Senior Consulting Manager / Generally Cool Guy of Villa Lagoon Tile.

Rusty Dillon

High speed pursuits, private jets, secret spy missions, and multi-platinum albums. None of these things have anything to do with me, but at least I got your attention. The reality is that I'm just a down-to-earth dude that tries to help my clients complete their projects in whatever way I am able during the day. After hours, I'm a very accomplished woodworker, a mediocre hard rock drummer, and just the worst dancer you could ever imagine. When it's time to buckle down and complete a task, I'm your man. When it's time to relax and joke around, I've got you covered there, too. ps. I freakin' love kittens! Except the ones without fur- those things weird me out.

About Villa Lagoon Tile

Villa Lagoon Tile was initially established when Lundy sought out a studio for her own tile designs for her Gulf Coast home.

During the construction of a DAC-ART Building System hurricane proof home in Gulf Shores, AL, owner, Lundy Wilder realized that the only flooring choice that really made sense for an Italian classic home in this storm-prone area was the tile that she had seen in her travels often called encaustic cement tile. After much research, she determined that the tile was still wildly popular in many parts of the world, but virtually unknown in the States.

Another observation was that while there were exotic, colorful and even hypnotic patterns available from the far corners of the world, few of the designs would appeal to North Americans who have grown accustomed to living with mono-chromatic floors. Additionally, there were no patterns available that reflected coastal lifestyles and color schemes.

So "what's a girl to do ?" ... go into the tile business in order to get the tile she needs for a Gulf Coast home.

Lundy has designed multi-colored tile patterns that achieve many things. They harmonize beautifully with both the popular and classic colors loved by coastal dwellers and the historic mosaic tiles are extremely versatile in how they can be used.

Traditional floors made of encaustic cement tiles are laid out like a carpet or rug and often have a coordinating border just as a Persian rug might. Lundy has created tiles that can be mixed and matched with various borders or used wall-to-wall with no border. Some of the tiles have interlocking patterns that can be laid in both a tessellating 90 degree turn pattern, or laid side-by-side with no rotation for an entirely different look. Villa Lagoon Tile now offers both traditional interlocking mosaic-like designs and bold contemporary all-over patterns.

Villa Lagoon Tiles can be delivered to your project, home or business. Once you decide on your design and colors, your order will be made and shipped in about 8-14 weeks, depending on the collection. Should another storm hit the Gulf Coast, Lundy feels sure that her beautiful floors will remain intact, just as her DAC-ART guest house has through two of the biggest natural disasters to ever hit the Gulf Coast.
