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.

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.
