As a popular design for interiors, geometric styles help to create a versatile and vibrant look for any room.
Embracing this trend, Walker Zanger tiles’ feature dramatic patterns, angles, lines and crisp shapes that transform any interior.

For designers, geometric forms provide a subtle yet distinctive boost to an environment, deftly altering it through the use of defined angles, dramatic lines and angular shapes. For those looking to maneuver the relative arrangement of different design elements, geometric shapes are an ideal way to call attention to the positions of forms and the properties of space.

Offered in soothing combinations of blue and pure white as well as richly veined white and red, with accents of silver or gold leaf, Byzantium offers decorative options for myriad styles and applications.
The Tangent collection pushes the limits of stone-cutting technology.

The colors of the Tangent collection vary from light to dark and warm to cool, reaching a comfortable middle ground in ash gray.
