The new entry is complete!

The new entry to our showroom is complete. I'm sure there will be a bit more fussing and fine tuning but it's really beautiful. Bright and inspiring! Maybe the best part of the new entry is that the panels are easily removed, which means we can keep it updated, exciting and new.

On the right side we are showcasing our newest line - Motif. There are 3 large panels to give you a sense of how it might be used in your home and 9 concept boards to show you all the pattern options.

The other side has a Northwest feel, and highlights the fact that we make our tile right here in Portland, Oregon. There is a wall of great shots from our factory so you can see just how we make all these beautiful tiles (but you should still take the tour!)  

There are 4 panels showing  new contemporary takes on some of our favorite Craftsman style pieces, and a fantastic Craftsman glazed floor in our new Arabesque shape. 

 As always, it's even better in person. Come in and tell us what you think!

Look out Florida, here we come!

Our booth for Coverings is finished, packed and on the road! 
We've been frantically working away at it for weeks and weeks and seeing it packed up and loaded on the truck is both a relief and a little scary!

Ron closing up the last crate
Coverings is the big tile trade show attended by tile makers, importers and showrooms from all around the world. This is the first time we are going to the show as exhibitors and needless to say we want to make a big impact for our first show. We had a great team working on the new tile designs and concepts and it was a lot of fun.

These crates are gigantic! Thousands of pounds of tile and all the trappings to display it. 
 I don't want to give away any surprises so that everyone who comes to the show will see all our new products for the first time. If you're in town for the show stop by to see us - we're booth 3211.

Find us at Booth 3211!
If you aren't going to make it to Florida for the show keep an eye on the blog - I'll post photos of all our new displays and some pictures from the show floor as soon as the show starts. That's April 17th.  Stay tuned or see you in Florida!
