This photo shows how polished basketweave tile can look both woven and like a dotted pattern, depending on how the light hits it. The shiny surfaces of the individual pieces have a wonderful reflective quality. Popular stone combinations are Cararra marble with gray or black squares, or "dots."
Here is a warm-tone basketweave mosaic in honey onyx with black dots. The small pieces and the many grout lines provide traction underfoot, making it perfect for a shower floor. It is shown with a light travertine tile.
Basketweave tile looks very different when dark stone is paired with light dots. This is pistachio, a limestone embedded with tiny fossils, paired with a white stone called Thassos. Don't the dots seem to recede?
This one, pistachio with black dots, neither advances nor recedes.
