inspired by - hexagon floor tile

If I were to rip out my floors tomorrow (specifically in the kitchen but maybe in the bathroom as well) I would put in hexagon tile floors. And not the small 1 inch by 1 inch tiles we typically see but lovely large ones in a range of colours. rue-vignon-dining-room-horizontalThis 18th century house in Paris used tiles from a demolished 7th floor to fill in the gaps in this dining room designed by architect Michael Herrman. I love the random pattern.

Also, if you love the idea of a marble waterfall countertop but can't afford the slabs using square marble tiles like on this island would be a more affordable option.

What do you think? Are you a fan of these hexagonal tile floors?
