We traveled to Las Vegas last week for The International Surface Event (TISE), the largest floor covering, stone, and tile industry event in North America. The show brings together manufacturers and sellers from all over the world to see the latest products, trends, services, and technologies. We covered a lot of ground (literally) and have some exciting new products to share with you, many of which we will begin carrying in our store later this spring.For now, aÂ few highlights fromÂ TISE 2016:Tile ~Â One major trend we took away from the tile arena was texture. Mixed materials and inconsistency were everywhere. And with beautiful, unique results. Shapes (other than square) are also seeing their days in the sun.
Laminates ~ Countertops and floors continue to surprise us with their beautiful, this-can't-be-laminate looks. There's value and good design to be had from many of theseÂ products right now. And what do you think about laminate for your walls?
Carpet ~ Rug quality continues to improve, and consumers today have fantastic, stylish options for busy households with kids and pets. New colors, designs, and a custom area-rug program are all headed our way very soon. We can't wait to share them with you.
