Ken Wiedemann, Ron Cook, and Heidi Martin recently attended COVERINGS on behalf of United Tile. For those who aren’t familiar with this annual event, COVERINGS is the largest tile show in the U.S. Manufacturers from all over the world come to display the latest in tile, stone, setting materials, machinery — and anything else that may be related to our tile world.
COVERINGS is always a wonderful opportunity to connect with our current suppliers, and often find some new ones. We are always excited to see the newest trends in tile. We continue to be impressed with the new digital inkjet technology that allows porcelain manufacturer to produce an incredibly realistic replica of stone. We are pleased to announce that we have adopted a couple of these looks, and look forward to introducing them to you in the next few months:
TRAVERTINE LOOK (Ethnos & Darwin Series) – We selected three colors from sister companies Monocibec & Century, to create a dynamic travertine looking package in a porcelain tile. We will offer these in a 20×20, 10×20, 10×10, 13×13, 2×2 & battiscopa. One color (Floreana, shown in photo) will also be offered in a 20×40 size!
NATURAL STONE – We are also looking at some new natural stone programs. While these negotiations are still on-going, we are excited about the possibilities to expand our stone program to include some deeper, richer colors in limestone and vein-cut stones.
Stay tuned for additional creative products this summer and fall!
