Pedestrians strolling by won’t be able to help but pull up a seat in this inviting cafe. While the wood tables and chairs, linen pillows, and exposed wood beams in the ceiling create an undeniably cozy, cabin-esque atmosphere, the feature wall of crisp herringbone tiles asserts its modernity. While you try to figure out if there’s a pattern to the color alternation of the lightest gray tiles, muse on this as well: Ceramic tile is water-, scratch-, stain-, bacteria-, slip-, and fire-resistant, leaving nothing to be desired. Whether or not you find a pattern, you have found the best material for commercial surfaces.
