The assortment comprises eight unique geometric and ethnic designs that have a special flow component, which makes the tiles easy to fix and lends an aesthetic look. These brilliantly crafted tiles have a special feature whereby they can be fixed continuously in the conventional way to form an attractive pattern or they can be rotated and fixed linearly to beget a new different pattern. This offers limitless innovative possibilities for the same product.
Cement tiles are also otherwise known as Cuban tiles, Mexican tiles or Moroccan tiles and their use is prevalent in the Caribbean, Latin America and Europe. The demand for these kaleidoscopic tiles which were sought after during the 1930s in the United States is currently facing a revival. The Villa Lagoon tiles have found themselves in various locations such as lobbies of upscale hotels, airports, restaurants and houses and offer a long-lasting utility value as well as an aesthetic look to the interiors of the buildings.
The tiles measure 8¡¨„e8¡¨ or 20„e20 cm and approximately weigh 3 lb each. The handcrafted N-Finity tiles are designed by Neyland Design, come in an array of 60 colorful options, and are marketed by Villa Lagoon.
