The most striking feature of this apartment in Barcelona, Spain, is the use of tiles on the floor. These types of graphic tile designs can be found in many houses in the city. Walk into a bar or restaurant in Barcelona and chances are that you will encounter a beautiful tile pattern on the floor. In the late 19th century, mass reproduction of intricately designed floor tiles became possible, and they became a common feature in the interiors of buildings in cities all around the Mediterranean. In Barcelona, the design of such tiles reached its peak in the age of Modernismo, the Spanish variety of Art Nouveau, in the early 20th century
