What do you think about the arabesque tiles? Also, what would you call the 2013 'IT' tile style? We'd love to know!

We bought a fixer home in 1994 that had this exact tile in the entry/foyer - in a brilliant peacock blue - which had been laid when the home was built in 1974. We couldn't wait to rip it out, but that was 20 years ago. Forty years later, the '70's rise again!

To my eye, this is a Moorish or Moroccan motif.

Prefer to use it in a color as a accent? Can you tell I've been looking at this tile? LOL

When I moved in my home in 2003 it also had those tiles in my bowling alley style entry in a emerald green, YUCK replaced them quickly with light porcelain tiles

I would rather use this shape tile on a wall than on a floor.

I'm readier to see more contemporary styling in tiles. That one looks extremely dated.

I don't mind it. It is pretty - but I'd most likely not choose for myself or client - I feel it's a very trendy statement on a pretty perm. project;(

sorry, accidentally deleted our post:

We've just decided to carry this item--a little change to the solid arabesque shape. :) We're loving the responses!

@Carolyn Albert-Kincl - Wood tiles? :)

Wood tiles look interesting...haven't seen them. Do they look as good in person?

This Moroccan shaped tile is a refreshing update to the standard mosaic. I love the larger scale.

@Carolyn - I actually love the look of wood tiles (but I of course can only speak for one person within AAStone) :)

ann sacks has one i believe it's called nottingham. for me it's like macrame. i'm just old enough to remember seeing it in older homes when i was a kid. they were dated then and i'm not anxious to see them roll around again.

Right. They definitely have a specific place and can work for historic homes or depending on color and surface a contemporary space.

I have certainly seen wood looking tiles, but not in that arabesque shape. I like the planks, not sure about the arabesque.

We are a little Arabesque Crazy too and the price of our Porcelain Arabesque tiles are under $11.00 a square foot (For 2015). We also offer Arabesque in Carrara, Crema Marfil, Nero Marquina, Stainless Steel Metal and plan to add in Travertine and anything else we can think of :)

We just love the Arabesque shape, cannot get enough of these Moroccan beauties.
