Architectural Tile & Stone is Austin’s premier source for boutique ceramic and natural stone tile distribution and high-end stone imports, fabrication, and installation.
When you choose Architectural Tile & Stone, you’re choosing a legacy of high-quality craftsmanship in the tile and stone industry.
Steve Rymer founded Architectural Tile & Stone in 1999, but his experience in the tile industry stretches decades earlier. When Steve was just 11 years old, he recalls packing Saltillo tile in a vacant lot to be shipped to Chicago. After attending UT, he joined the family business officially and worked in the Dallas Design District before moving to Austin, TX to launch his own tile and slab company, Architectural Tile & Stone.
Ryan Steele is the third generation in the tile industry and can remember grouting tile boards and filing samples as an after-school job at the company. After completing her degree in interior design and spending seven years with an internationally renowned design and architecture group in Houston, she joined the family business. Since she joined the team, longtime clients will notice an enhanced social media presence and an evolution in style toward distinctive design, but Ryan’s committed to continuing in her father’s brand of leadership and customer service.
The brand is built on one simple principle: Quality! For more than two decades, Architectural Tile & Stone has grown through word of mouth. Our work (and happy clients) speak for itself.
In 1999, we set out to do something that had never been done before. More than two decades later, we’re still blazing a trail in the Austin, TX tile and slab industry. Thousands of happy customers love our hands-on approach and commitment to the highest quality of products. We look forward to sharing the special brand of Architectural Tile & Stone customer care with you, too.

Their average length of employment is also well beyond any of their competition because they treat their employees well and they provide them with the most interesting work available in town. The’ve been a family owned and operated business for decades. Oh… and they source the world’s best material through longstanding relationships around the world.

I really can’t say enough incredible things about Architectural Tile & Stone. Their stone selection is simply UNTOUCHABLE – the best of the best! They are a family owned business and take immense pride in their products and source stones from all over the world. They also have the most beautiful tile and are very accommodating and helpful with the selection process. Furthermore, their customer service and installation team is top notch. They settle for nothing less than perfection and go above and beyond to satisfy their customers. I have now used them for two different homes and I HIGHLY recommend.
