Welcome Arizona Tiki Oasis Fans. Read about The Shag House!

Tesselle is a supplier of Breeze Blocks and Cement Tiles, with over 600 products and 100,000 square feet in stock.  One of the highlights of 2024 was that Josh Agle (a.k.a. The Artist Shag) specified our breeze blocks and cement tiles for The Shag House, which were showcased during Modernism Week, in Palm Springs in February, and is now available as an event venue and vacation rental. Here are some photos of the Tesselle product installations:

As the lead designer and creative director, Shag has masterfully combined his architectural studies and artistic aesthetic to reimagine this classic 1958 home. While preserving the core of the house, including the familiar 3-bedroom, 2-bath layout, tongue and groove ceilings, and the original fireplace, he has transformed the rest for modern homeowners.

The front entry has been expanded, and the original breezeway has been converted into a swank party lounge, offering grand curb appeal and a perfect backdrop for unforgettable gatherings. 

Shag's artistic style, drawing from commercial illustration from the past five decades, has breathed life into every nook and cranny of the Shag House. With its vivid colors, sly humor, and celebration of consumerism, this house is not just a home—it's a work of art that sets the stage for the perfect party in Palm Springs. 

The Shag House offers an immersive experience, where every corner feels like a life-sized Shag painting. Meet the collaborators and the participating brands.
