The floor tile patterns featured here are designed to amaze . . . and that, indeed, is what they do! Scores of squares within squares. Sensuous swirls. Stunning star- bursts. Elegant diamond and herringbone patterns. Greek keys and basketweaves.
AND . . . . . . . triangles, trapezoids, polygons, parallelograms and quadrilaterals, as shown in "Soliel" (above right and below) from New Ravenna's Aurora Collection. But for those of us -- the writer, included -- whose geometry jargon has evolved little beyond simple circles and squares, let's begin with "the basics."
A glass tile mosaic from Bisazza's "Opus Romano" series makes it hip to be square. Shown here in Wenge Nero, the two tile wide pattern alternates between light and dark to create a striking contrast in color.
Pictured below is an "Opus Romano" bathroom floor tile installation at the Hotel de Russie in Rome.
