Tile designer and ceramist Susanne Kibak Redfield merges her Danish roots and love of traditional crafts with a modern sense of restraint that brings just enough to the design without going over the top. After graduating from the University of California Santa Cruz in 1981, Susanne started her own business making ceramic tiles. She introduced Kibak Tile through Kneedler Fauchere, a revered interior showroom to the trade, then spent twenty five years in a successful relationship with Ann Sacks. "I began hearing about Fireclay Tile, their sustainable story and youthful energy really captured my imagination, I absolutely wanted to be part a company that really cares about tomorrow.

Pattern Play: 5 Creative Ways Use Ogee Drop

Bathroom installation featuring Ogee Drop in Lagoon

Taking cues from exotic Moroccan architecture, Ogee Drop is a fresh and modern twist on ancient designs.  With endless color options and two different layouts to choose from we narrowed it down to 5 of our favorite ways to use this oh so versatile pattern.

1.) Solid Style

If you have a more refined aesthetic,  try Ogee Drop in one solid color.  For an eye-catching look use a bold color such as our aqua-inspired hue, Lagoon.  For a more subdued approach let the pattern speak for itself by choosing your favorite neutral.

2.) Modern Moroccan

Add exotic flair to your space with Ogee Drop in our Moroccan layout.  With it's elegantly fanned silhouette, this unexpected arrangement effortlessly interlocks to create a captivating ripple effect across your floor or wall.  We love how this bathroom enhances this exotic pattern by incorporating three separate hues, Tusk, Rainy Day and Mint.

3.) Fearlessly Bold

For those of us who are color obsessed, Ogee Drop is the perfect platform for experimentation.  We suggest choosing one dominant hue the way this kitchen has done with Tomato Red, and intermixing one or two analogous colors to create a bold yet cohesive look.

4.) An Ocean View

Mimicking the rippling effect of water, Ogee Drop in a straight set arrangement is the perfect blueprint for layering varying shades of blue, turquoise and green to create an ocean-inspired design.  We love how this bathroom creates a whimsical layered effect with these cool hues in a shape similar to our Ogee Drop shape for their cool bathroom retreat.

5.) Flipping Out

Did we mention how versatile Ogee Drop is?  Simply turn the shape upside down for a scalloped look perfect for experimenting with multiple colors, or keeping it simple with one solid hue.
