Radical plaid

Plaid has never lost its appeal, from its roots in Celtic blankets 500 years ago to the latest fashion magazines. California-based Trend USA brings plaid to the wall with its new Wallpaper Collection of glass mosaic tile, which comes in 64 patterns and 130 colourways. Depending on the pattern, the tile is saturated with reflective colour or veined with aventurine stone. The individual tiles are either 3/4- or 5/8-inch square, and assembled into modules that allow seamless repetition of design.
