Geometric designs enable one-of-a-kind plays on pattern. From a minimal design touch in a guest bath to an expansive accent wall, chevron is making a lasting statement across design-forward interiors.

A captivating take on the popular pattern, Velocity™ uniquely displays the various colors and textures found in distressed wood. Natural and painted wood tones alternate for rustic, yet modern appeal. A small-scale plank format on 17” x 35” tiles invites creative layouts - explore four of these layouts below.

Accent wall
Wood-look tones complement, and elevate, metallic finishes for a distinctive rustic-chic look. Carry a chevron pattern in alternating directions across rows for wall art that reads like a mural. 

Shower without boundaries 
With directional motifs, there are no limitations. Play with the angles chevron creates by carrying tile from the shower floor to the wall. Contrasting white and gray hues create a seamless contemporary design in this relaxing master suite. Courtesy of Stonehouse Tile in Cathedral City, California.

Workplace locker room
In WD-40 Company’s new San Diego headquarters designed by ID Studios, associates have access to a gym and spacious locker rooms to support the company’s emphasis on wellness. Velocity covers the floor - matching the rest of the workplace’s village feel.
