Lots of tiles to check out at ICFF this year! Since you can’t execute a category search for “tile” on the ICFF website, I took it upon myself to troll the flooring, wallcovering, and materials categories for you and track down some top picks…in no particular order:
Stone Source #1762
Stone Source always has a great both. Last year, one of my favorite discoveries were designer Laura Gottwald‘s modern stone mosaics. This year, she unveils an equally stellar new encaustic cement collection (top).
If you have never seen Sensitile’s luminous, light-reflective and -conductive acrylics and terrazzos in person, you must check them out:
Hoping Jaime and Isaac from MIO show their cork ModuTiles this year!
Dominic Crinson #2405
UK’s Dominic Crinson is one of very few companies that makes both wallpaper and tile. His patterns are always trippy and inventive:
Neelnox Stainless Steel Mosaic #1457
Don’t know these guys! Curious to see in person. They make stainless steel grade 304 mosaics in a wide variety of patterns. Check out the company’s website for more.
HighStyle Floors #1344
Not sure what they are showing, but they carry StudioArt leather tiles, which have always intrigued me. And HighStyle is based in my home borough, Crooklyn!
Raymond and Eduardo dished about their booth design a few weeks back, and I’m excited to see the final scheme! Nemo’s theme this year is “Save the trees, use tile”… meaning we’ll see lots of great faux-wood porcelains (which, as regular readers of this blog know, gets me v. excited), including Bioessenze:
Ceramic Tiles of Italy pavilion #1420
Refin, Casa Dolce Casa, Lea, Appiani, Etrurua, and FAP are just some of the manufactures exhibiting at the pavilion this year. Tagina will be showing Joe (below)…
…and Ceramica Bardelli will be showing Fornasetti reissues!
Others to check out:
Ceramica Arnon #1148
Designer Tile & Stone #1356
Spanish manufacturers Roca #908 and Apavisa #906
I’m sure I’m missing many more, so leave a comment and let me know what you saw and loved at the show!
