Designing in Kuwait, the need to design a swimming pool or update its finish is on a constant rise. For that I opted to share with you an artistic method of using mosaic tiles in your swimming pool.

Dutch design legend, Marcel Wanders, has collaborated with Senso on a new line of flooring Called “Impressions”. ‘It’s more about the texture than the color,’ says Wanders. ‘Some of them look almost edible, like chocolate.’.
