Echoing the curved and often elaborate motifs in Moroccan architecture, tile patterns like our Ogee Drop, Ogee, Paseo, and Star and Cross (available in both a Mini and Large size) add eye-catching dimension.
Paying homage to Moroccan tile and Spanish Colonial Revival architecture’s rich history, our Ogee gives shape to a time-honored design motif:
Our Paseo tile is a nod to historical design while looking right at home in everything from classic to contemporary to eclectic spaces:
An interlocking 8-pointed star and cross design lends artisanal beauty and global inspiration to classic and contemporary spaces alike.
One way to add Moroccan flavor to your space is with our handpainted tiles (specially our Moroccan Collection). Inspired by the intricate mosaics that adorn the walls of riads, traditional Moroccan homes, and beautiful Mosques, our Handpainted Tiles showcase timeless motifs like medallions and stars.

Keep it neutral:
