Replicate the majesty and character of faded 1950s interiors with Rombos, a remarkable range of aged encaustic geometric tiles that beg to be used as part of an eye-catching feature floor.
Durable ceramic construction
No need for post-installation sealing
Great R10 Slip Resistance
Created with head-turning feature floors in mind Rombos is fashioned in such a way that the sheen of history emanates from every last pore. Faithfully replicating timeworn encaustic floor tiles that were a staple of bars, restaurants and other commercial settings in America’s age of modernity, these beautiful, geometric tiles look great when paired with aged wood and the stark tones of worn metal. Use alongside anachronistic decor and ornamentation to create an ephemeral glimpse into a bygone era.
