Unmentioned is the change in scale of the new "tiles." Might the Foundation have insisted upon that change, with potential unauthorized use of the new product in mind ?

They appear to be c. 24" square, rather than 16", if the furniture is normally sized.

Grey would have been a better color... white will show dust more readily. Vacuuming will capture most of the dust, but a microfiber rag or brush will be needed eventually....says the guy who dusts a few hundred feet of redwood battens while listening to surf guitar played too loudly each month.

Part of the charm of textile block is the combination of various blocks, or the orientation of them, along with some blank blocks. To have walls of a single type oriented in the same way, without the relief of blanks is no different from wallpaper.
