Evalutions has developed a strong and lasting relationship with Murayah. As a design firm that specializes in the new construction of homes valued at $450,000.00-4 million dollars, we are always on the look out for products that add value and beauty to our homes and for our clients.

Murayah has the most beautiful and versatile line of tile artwork. We use their creations of classics to highlight bathrooms, niches, dining rooms, kitchen backsplashes---anywhere where a special touch is needed.

Quite often the selection of a mural provides an inspiration for the design scheme of a room or even the whole environment of a home. These lovely art creations add charm and beauty that give a timeless and truely old world feeling to the Mediterranean architecture of our homes.

With every model we build, I look for a specific place to install Murayah mural. I know that it will amaze everyone who walks through the home. We may not have Michael Angelo painting in our era, but now we have a way to bring the masters of the art world into our time and interior spaces.

Murayah is a bonus to our line of preferred vendors and trade partners. Service, quality and dependability couldn't be better.

Thanks for your product and willingness to meet all our design needs,

Murayah has given me the opportunity to add another element of beauty to my kitchen designs. My clients have been so impressed with the quality of the impressions on the antiqued tumbled tiles that they are inspired to create other elements of visual, sensual interest in their homes.

Thank you for a wonderful product, paired with outstanding service.

Dear Gadi,

I want to thank you for your exceptional service and your promptness in producing our orders. I’ve known you for 6 years, and what a pleasure it has been. Our customers are always amazed by your beautiful murals we have displayed in the showroom.

As you know, the Mother & Child mural is my favorite. The 4 foot by 4 foot mural hangs on the wall in my showroom, as well as, a 3 foot by 3 foot mural of the Mother & Child hangs above my own bathtub surrounded by Jerusalem Gold limestone.
When my friends see it in my bathroom they are truly taken by the beauty of the image and the old world feeling of the natural stone.

Thank you for creating such a wonderful product.

Sincerely,

Dear Gadi,

I just wanted to let you know how thrilled we our with our “Sea Spell” mural.

The lady has arrived safely, and lovely she is. --You have captured the Image wonderfully;--the face (especially the mouth) is really beautiful and a focal point for the entire image. You may remember that I first saw one your murals in a showroom whose proportions did not work in our space. But your suggestion about websites to find another image we might use was terrific. We had a lot of fun looking at all the possibilities until we arrived at Rosetti’s beautiful “Sea Spell”.
As you know, the whole kitchen was designed around it.

From start to finish, I really appreciated your patience and advice. I know I asked a lot of questions. Specifically, you helped with deciding on the size of the tiles, on the layout of the design so the grout lines wouldn’t cut into the face, and also about grouting itself. I remember well how you played with the image to address my concerns. We made two decisions that that we are very happy with and which we talked over with you: 1) we used no grout at all--partly because we couldn’t find a color that would work. And 2) we chose not to use the molding, as we wanted to keep the flow between the mural and the tiles around it.

Thanks again for a wonderful job,

Dear Gadi,

I would like to thank you for the beautiful mural that you created for our wine cellar.

You definitely exceeded our expectations; when we unpacked the UPS box, we realized that it looked much better than the picture on your web site. The craftsmanship and attention to detail were impeccable and the mural looked like a Museum piece. I am glad that we followed your advice in choosing Danaides. The theme and colors of the mural complement the wine cellar décor and became the focal point of the wine cellar. Dina and I enjoy the artistic environment so much, that quite often we choose to eat our dinners in the wine cellar.

Recently, we decided to purchase a second mural for our bathroom. I cannot find enough words to describe how much the mural added to the ambiance of the bathroom. I believe that the attached picture says it all.

Warm Regards,

Our Cellar Design Team at Rosehill Wine cellars has used Murayah murals on numerous occasions. They provide a look and feel that is old world and really complement what we are trying to achieve. Installation is simple and aiming a small light at the murals accentuates and bring them to life.

I have been very pleased with the quality of the murals, on time delivery and excellent customer service.

To the Murayah team,

Your mural, which was installed in my kitchen above the stove three years ago, continues to light up the room. The tumbled Italian marble mural is the focal point, making the kitchen feel much more rich and special. I get many comments when entertaining. Please feel free to share my experience with other potential customers. Thanks!

Dear Gadi,

I just want to give you the final awards information for the 2002 Vesta Home Show. La Maison de Reves won the best in show, People’s Choice Award, Best Foyer and best decorating.

I wanted to congratulate you for contributing a much talked about facet of the decorating.

I, of course, was in the home with my family and staff during the show and we all agree that the mural your company created was by far the most talked about by the visitors to the show.

It is not my nature to go on and on to a supplier, but the mural was truly an asset that made, I believe a tremendous difference in the overall ambiance of the home. Since we were going for a 18th century flair, the piece that we chose was ideal. A local female disc jockey commented that she felt as though she had left Memphis and was in Rome after having entered the master bath.

If you ever find yourself in need of a letter of reference, please call upon us and we will be happy to oblige.

Mural shown is 122MRH 48w x 30h (52w x 34h with molding), hand crafted on 6 x 6 x 3/8 tumbled Italian marble tiles.

We were interested in having an antique map of the world done in a tile over our stove. I looked for weeks and was unable to find anyone who could do what we wanted until I found Murayah. They did a beautiful job and in just a short time. The installation was easy and completed in just a few hours. This map is one of the major focal points of our kitchen. Everyone complements us on it and how well done it is. Thank you Murayah for a magnificent job.

Dear Gadi,

After searching the internet looking for the perfect mural for our kitchen, I found the Murayah website and fell in love with the unique art work and quality that was evident; I just knew I would have to order from your company and we love our mural!  It adds so much character and charm to our kitchen.  The investment was well worth it!  If we ever decide to purchase another mural for any other room in our home, I wouldn't even consider looking anywhere else.....Murayah creates such a beautiful product.

Thanks so much,

Mural shown is 227MRS 42"w x 24"h (46"w x 28"h with molding), hand crafted on 6" x 6" x 3/8" honed Italian marble tiles.

It was serendipity that I found Murayah...just a flash on HGTV showing Paul Ranson's "Pommes Rouge"--a post-impressionist work that I was admiring literally the night before in some home decorating catalog selling prints, wishing that I could find a space for that image in our new decor.  Who knew how it would end up! We were in the middle of a kitchen remodel, and were agonizing over what to do for the backsplash.  As one option, I was looking for custom painted tiles but couldn't find an artist that fit the look I wanted.  I tracked down the Murayah website, and was amazed at the exquisite selection of late 19th century art available, from many of my favorite artists that I had studied in college.  (I wish I was remodeling a bathroom just so I could include an Alma-Tadema bath scene!)  Gadi Friedman has assembled a wonderful collection of images, and I was delighted he included the work we chose--from the obscure Nabi movement which has rich colors, and lines full of feeling inspired by East meets West.  The colors in this particular piece were perfect for our bold kitchen design, and the style suited us perfectly with our own mixture of Asian, European and African themes in the rest of the decor.  Gadi was an absolute delight to work with, and he was attentive to every need in the design process, happy to work out a solution to best fit our space. Our mural is the centerpiece of our contemporary kitchen, and the quality of the image lends a richness to the tiles. We felt it was important to have art in the kitchen, and to not have the cook top backsplash just plain tile, like so many people do.  We took advantage of the blank wall space to create a rich and complete environment that invites participation--the field scene draws you in to make you a part of it. We love looking at it every day!  Thank you Murayah!  Best wishes for a successful future.

I really struggled to find tile that would complement my kitchen until I came across Murayah’s website.  It was very professionally done and the murals displayed are wonderful.  I knew it was exactly what I was after.  Of course, by then I needed the mural as soon as possible and couldn't believe that you were able to ship it to me in under two weeks.  The mural was just beautiful and so easy to install my brother and son completed the installation in an afternoon.

Thank you for providing a wonderful product and outstanding service.

Dear Gadi,

I wanted to thank you for all your work and artistry in recreating our family crest with your art on marble technique. The final product came out beautiful and I’m proudly displaying it as one of the first things you see when you walk into my home. My ancestors would be proud. And thanks for all your follow up diligence to insure that the quality would be just what I was hoping for.

Thanks,

My kitchen remodel was a wonderful experience and the mural we purchased from your company was the icing on the cake. It truly finished off the look of our new kitchen. The colors and craftsmanship of the tile make this a work of art. The mural showcases my new Viking range and it is the first thing my guests notice as they come in the kitchen. I appreciate your company's attention to detail and the timeliness of delivery. Our tile installer had no problems installing this feature. I LOVE IT!!

Gadi,

As you know from my emails and phonecalls, my wife and I spent several months choosing from among the murals in your portfolio.  Because our kitchen's primary wall has no window, we needed a way to bring the outside (in this case a Dutch wheatfield) in.  Still, we were surprised by the beauty of the final installation.  The fact that after circumstance necessitated the removal of an entire row of perfectly good mural tiles you were able to replace the row in only a week (!) and that you did so at no charge(!!), was just the icing on the cake.

Thanks again.

Our company builds high quality custom homes in the Asheville, North Carolina area. We have used Murayah’s murals for the first time in our latest model.  We loved the mural so much that we ordered another for our own personal home.

I wanted to share with you how both murals have graced and given each home such a unique spectacular charm. The model home has a mural of trees and a walkway over a fireplace mantel. It brings a piece of nature and art inside the formal living area, creating a relaxed yet stately atmosphere. Our personal home has a mural of the Santa Maria Della over a French plate rack with a light over it, which creates a lovely ambiance as it appears framed into the wall the way the cabinetry gracefully outlines it. When we cook or dine now in our kitchen we feel transported into another world. We wanted the kitchen of our dreams. Accomplishing that would of been impossible without Murayah. Everyone who sees our kitchen is impressed and amazed by it's beauty. We now plan to put a mural in every model we build.
