Introducing our Metropolitan Collection

Introducing our Metropolitan Collection

Heavy duty. Handmade. Using our industry-approved Non-Slip glazes, the new Metropolitan Collection takes the floor and beyond. The Metropolitan Collection first drew from the simplicity and movement of breeze block patterns. 

Chicago in Black and Yellow Motif

Tile Shown: Chicago in Gray and Yellow Motif

Developed using the Non-Slip glazes that launched as a precursor to the collection, the patterns evolved into distinct urban designs. From New York’s ever-present scaffolding to Los Angeles’ Art Deco facades, every pattern pays homage to a sprawling American city.
