Description:

Straightforward is part of the Flatweave Collection.

Inspired by modern architecture and structures of glass and steel, Fusion uses contrasting colours in combination to create a subtle linear pattern. Emulating the lustre of metal and glass structures, Straightforward harnesses ascending patterns that shift the weight of colour from one to the other. The most popular product in Europe, the various colour weights of the tiles work together to create a stunning design that’s unique to every space.
