Shape Spotlight: Picket

Posted by: Kali • Mar 23

Shape Spotlight: Picket

Inspired by the classic hexagon silhouette, Picket slims and elongates this timeless shape for a fresh look. Picket is one of our larger specialty shapes and can be installed in three different patterns, which we're showcasing below because we're all about Pickets right now. 

Braided Pattern: 
Our Picket in the braided pattern has quickly become an employee and client favorite. The organic look creates a soothing effect for both a floor or wall application.

You could also go for a blend of colors in this pattern:

Straight Set Horizontal:
We think that our Picket can be treated as an alternative to subway tile. Install it in a horizontal straight set for a look that feels classic, but with a twist. From residential to commercial spaces, the shape can find itself right at home in this pattern. 

San Francisco's Dandelion Chocolate chose our Pickets in White Wash for their Ferry Building location:

Pickets look just as good in neutral colors as they do in more bold hues:

Mister Jiu's, a new San Francisco restaurant opted for straight set Pickets in Adriatic Sea for their men's bathroom. This installation proves that you can use a large shape like this in a smaller space for a beautiful result.

Vertical Straight Set: 
If you are working with more vertical space or want to create the illusion of more height, go for this shape in a verticle orientation.

Thinking about doing a focal point in your kitchen? Pickets pair easily with surrounding field tile.

The install below showcases Pickets in a vertical pattern that really adds more height to the space.

We'd love to see this shape installed vertically in a bold color, like Bryce Canyon:
