What is considered large format these days anyways??? Here is a list of collections that include squares ≥ 32" x 32" or rectangles ≥ 24" x 48".
Look here for things to embellish your project. Some are small and simple and on a mesh. Others are large format and super decorative and colorful! Regardless they'll add a layer of excitement to your project.
Originally this section was simply called "Weird". Why? Because we think we're weird and that is one of the main things that set us apart from our competition. That said one of our clients gently suggested that to someone that doesn't know us it might make these items sound unappealing. Reality set in and we thought hey the last thing we want is for someone to be discouraged at looking at this section! It's our favorite stuff! So we are officially calling this stuff out little treasures and we hope you agree that they are just that!
Back in 2006 this section was tiny and few factories were interested in manufacturing tile that looked like cement. Fast forward and it seems that just about every other collection that a factory manufactures is some form of cement or concrete looking tile. Well as you can see this section is quite large indicating our passion for the raw and natural.

Keidos (actual cement)
Hey natural stone is not for everyone! For those that don't want to deal with the maintenance and TLC necessary to keep nature's tiles looking good this section is for you. And while we think the industry is past the point of trying to fool someone into thinking that a tile is an actual natural stone the factories have really stepped it up to where sometimes we (the "experts") find ourselves fooled by some of these designs.
Material Coral (agglomerate, terrazzo)
Out 2.0 (exterior structural pavers)
Palazzo (the Belvedere in particular)
Petra Natural Stone (this is actual stone)
Pietre 3 (our favorite limestone look)

FS Ofelia (terrazzo)
FS Venecia (terrazzo)

Le Veneziane (terrazzo)
Light (super light and super clean light cream limestone-ish)
Made 2.0 (improbably [possibly impossibly] clean limestone)
Manhattan Floor (suede like look and feel)
Houston is the Bayou City and those bayous find themselves spilling over more often than we'd like. If you are in an area prone to flooding, or if you have a 120 pound dog, or you don't want to deal with high-heel dents and dings on your restaurant floor, this section is for you.
