    Diamonds Do Last Forever, and They Are Not Just a Girl's Best Friend

    We are all familiar with the black and white diamond floor tiles and the dramatic impact they can have on a room. However, they tend to be for more formal and/or traditional settings.


    It's a great look and optically makes an area appear more spacious.

    In fact, the diamond shape in design, both decorative and architecturally, has been around for millennium. After all the triangle is one of the strongest shapes that can support heavy weights with ease. 

    Early Roman walls in Napoli were constructed with a crisscross of horizontally lined bricks and diamond shaped stones. The pattern was earthquake resistant, and succeeded in distributing the stress from shocks, so as not to crack. [ref. ]

     And their use continues into modern times. Outside and...

     Inside.

    Let's kick it up a notch with these Carats of Color! These fresh designs bring the strength to support fresh, modern design schemes or can put a little oomph into more traditional spaces. The best part - choosing the "right" one is easier than you think.
