Vertical Subway Tile With A Twist: Meet Rise by Mercury Mosaics

In a world filled with design norms and well-trodden paths, we believe it's time to take a walk on the wild side of interior aesthetics. Meet 'Rise' - a contemporary subway tile pattern that's turning heads, walls, and floors with its quirky twist on vertical subway tile, featuring those captivating diagonal cut lines. If you're in the market for a design that breaks the mold and dances to its own eccentric rhythm, you're in for a treat. Continue on to see how our newest handmade subway tile pattern, Rise, was born and how designers are using it now!

What Is Rise Tile?

First things first, let's talk about the heart and soul of Rise. It's not just a tile pattern; it's a meticulously crafted type of subway tile with diagonal cut edges perfectly fitting into the next. Each diagonal subway tile is carefully handmade from start to finish, infusing it with character and personality that's truly one-of-a-kind. The attention to detail is exceptional, and you'll feel it when you run your fingers along the diagonal lines of these sleek unique subway tiles. Rise embodies the essence of artisanal design in every sense. In fact, our mover and shaker, Mercedes Austin, dreamt up this contemporary pattern. She says,

"This new pattern is lovingly named Rise. It is my message to the world as an industrial designer. It is a part of curating excellent spaces. Designing spaces with excellence as a priority sends a message to the people living there: Rise."
