Design With Us

Welcome to our very first Design with Us! We hope to make this a regular feature on our blog.
Our design team is constantly coming up with new designs for our tiles. We go through our own selection process to determine which ones will make it into our product line. Our process usually includes lots of meetings, many lively discussions, experiments with size and color, and reprint, reprint, reprint. We get so invested in our creations that it can be difficult to choose the winners and losers. It is like trying to decide which of our children is our favorite!
When we do add items to our product line, sometimes the designs that we absolutely love hardly sell. And there are always those surprises - the designs that just take off from the very first day, even though it had not been one of our favorites.
This blog is a great way for us to share our design process and get feedback on potential new designs. We would love to hear what you think of these prototype designs and we are ready for any and all comments.

Notice that these tiles have a three dimensional look to them, but they are not etched or carved in the stone. It is our normal printing process and the surface of the tiles are flat.
Please let us know what you think by leaving a comment below.

I really like the Gold Tone ones. They have a very rich look and I can't get over how 3D they look. Even when I look at the bigger pictures, I can't tell that it is just printing on flat stone. Prototype C layout looks the best.
