With its elegantly fanned silhouette, Ogee Drops can be installed in three different ways for equally captivating patterns. A classic tile shape, the Ogee Drop is most definitely a customer favorite because of their ability to add interest to any space they adorn. We're sharing some of our favorite Ogee Drop projects and the three ways to install on today's blog. Want to see them all, click here

Straight Set:
Taking cues from exotic Moroccan architecture, Ogee Drops in a Straight Set pattern is a fresh and modern twist on ancient designs. This arrangement creates a whimsical scalloped pattern for a playful layered fan effect.

Our Ogee Drop really gained some fame when Emily Henderson chose this shape in Crater Lake for her masterbath.

This shape was also featured more than once in the Coastal Living 2016 Showhouse. We love how the designer chose to feature it in a warm tone in one of the bathrooms:

Teardrop: 
Turning our Ogee Drop upside down into a teardrop pattern also creates a dynamic, layered affect that many compare to fish scales.

From single color to a blend (like the kitchen below), this pattern works its magic in a playful, yet classic way.
