She left a successful position in the high-pressure world of Silicon Valley technology and did what many successful entrepreneurs before her had done… turned her true passion into a golden opportunity. 

Looking for a way to follow her design passion and talent for mosaic art, she partnered with her husband Dave, who helped her transform her art into a revolutionary new business model – the result was Modwalls.com.

"Lots of companies sell tile online, but what we do is a little different," says Lonergan. "Our focus is modern and mid-century inspired tile. One of the product lines that sets us apart from other tile makers is our Brio and Brio Blend tile."

The Brio glass mosaic tile comes in nearly 80 colors, and is ideal for walls as backsplash tile, shower tile, pool tile and it even makes a great floor tile. The Brio tile is well-suited for any use indoor or outdoor and comes in a variety of finishes that are hitting home with homeowners and professional designers alike.

But what really puts Modwalls into a league of its own is its proprietary online Tile Blender tool that allows any person or designer create their own custom blend (Brio Blend) based on their color choices.

The Tile Blender offers endless possibilities for color and pattern variation, making it a wonderful fit for any design project. The Blender tool is also equipped with a grout selector to assist in the right grout color choice for the application. Additionally the software has a square footage calculator that helps approximate the number of tile sheets needed to complete your project.

What’s unique about Brio Blends is that the custom tile sheets are assembled locally in San Jose by an extraordinary group of people.

Modwalls partners with Hope Services. Hope Services employs developmentally disabled adults, teaching them real-world skills, and in this case – making custom tiles for Modwalls.com. Modwalls custom orders employs over 40 Hope Services staff, and that number is growing.

"Words cannot capture the pride we feel about this product," says Rebecca. "Not only are the buyers of the tile excited about it, but the joy we feel about the team that manufacturers it – fills us with happiness every day."

Now eight years later, the Modwalls brand is thriving with loyal customers in the design and hospitality world, as well as with homeowners throughout North America who are seeking something different than what they are able to find in most brick and mortar showrooms or big box home goods stores. Modwalls is located in Aptos, California.

“Darlene, Chris and Jessica could not have worked more in sync throughout the process. Jessica was always a friendly voice when calling the office and kept our design orders flowing. Chris kept our finances in order and was so honest he wouldn’t accept that huge final draw we thought we owed, and Darlene kept tabs on the weekly needs and progress.”
