Stitch Tower evokes the square edged rhythms of prefabricated concrete tower blocks. Strong lines surround panelled windows in this solid geometric tile pattern. Tower works most easily in a combination of three colours. Monochromatic tones are best embellished with a brightly coloured grout. Breaking up the bold lines by switching coloured elements brings this design more in line with the Transport pattern. Although this pattern takes form from mid century architecture, making it up with pastel colours gives it a definite 1980’s edge.

Suggested colour combinations are available to order but these can be configured from the palette of fifteen porcelain colours. For example it is possible to alter these custom tiles by choosing the colour of the pieces that make up each pattern. Different colour placements will accordingly alter the look and effect of each pattern. It must be remembered that the colour of the grout is almost as important as the tile and has a dramatic influence on the finished effect.
