A/D Sales Representative

We are pleased to announce Lois Wallace has joined United Tile, and will work with Lisa Anderson and John Barker on the development of commercial project specifications and sales in Washington.  Lois has an impressive background in A/D sales.  She began her tile career with Interstyle in Vancouver BC, has worked for Dal Tile and Ames Brothers and most recently held the position of lead A/D representative for Pental in Seattle.

As we inch our way out of the down-turn in our economy, high on our list of priorities was adding an Architect/Design Representative to increase our coverage and service to our A/D customers.  This change is occurring sooner than anticipated, but we feel the opportunity to have Lois join our team will help strengthen our service level immediately.

Lois will be your direct contact for project information, samples, technical support, and product updates.

Our A/D sales team now consists of:

We were thrilled to be a part of Seattle Fashion Week this year!  This exciting event is an amazing gathering of extraordinary designers, models, and industry professionals.  The garments we created along with NBBJ and Callison over the past couple years for Product Runway (see previous blog posts) were featured Saturday evening at the event, as a kick-off to the final evening.  The theme of the evening was Established International Designers, and we were proud to have our garments represented on the same stage as:
          B’ZMA (Dubai)
          Catalin Botezatu (Romania)
          Eva Chen (Canada)
          House of Versatile Styles (Washington DC)
          MONAPALI (India)
          Richard Blayne Walsh (Seattle)
          Vera Wang (by Marcella’s La Boutique)

It was wonderful to have the press and fashion design community take interest in our talent and innovation!  The event was featured in Seattle Homes & Lifestyles (May/June issue), a segment on Evening Magazine, and in Seattle Metropolitan’s “Shop Talk” newsletter.

The garments were made exclusively from United Tile products.  The outfit made with NBBJ included:
**Laticrete’s 9235 waterproof membrane fabric
**Composeal shower pan liner
**A mosaic headdress, belt and shoes featuring glass from Bisazza, Stone & Pewter Chimera, and Crossville Water Crystals. 

The outfit made with Callison included:
**Laticrete 9235 waterproof membrane fabric
**Mosaics from Stone & Pewter Mu Wood, Bisazza glass, Interstyle glass, and Crossville glass.
(the dress was stripped and woven with the Laticrete fabric)

Thanks to the United Tile staff who participated in the making of these garments, as well as our partners at Callison and NBBJ!!  And thanks to Alvin Nguyen Photography for providing the photos.
