The triangle is the new hexagon! The triangle is a stable, yet dynamic shape that will bring balance to your designs while adding a pop of visual interest. Terrazzo-look tile is gaining increased popularity. It's patterned after the classic terrazzo, which is made by mixing marble, granite, quartz, or glass chips into a cement binder. Clever designers are mixing terrazzo looks and triangles!
