tile floor pavement In contrast to other panels in this series, this design is made up mainly of tiles of all the same size and shape. The large central area only features three kinds of tile. The effect is very much like that of a patterned carpet or rug. The success of this depends on the fact that the tiles have been designed to look as though they are made up of many smaller geometric tiles, as can be seen in the detailed picture below.
