This month has definitely been one for the books!
After Carolina Tile & Stone recently became a dealer of Schluter products, we thought it was imperative for us to get a better understanding of their product. We were invited to Wrightsville Beach for their Innovative Workshop Part 1 where Alicja & Paulina Kudla became educated in Schluters range of products, installation guidelines, and even a brief history of tile & installation practices. Hands-on workshops were provided for everyone to get involved, and we did not miss the opportunity. We were very grateful to attend & walked away feeling confident in our understanding of Schluter product.
Before we attended Coverings, our trip to Atlanta, GA began with the Luxury Artistic Tile Summit. The best sellers of Artistic Tile around North America were invited to attend this coveted event. Guest speakers included Paulette Pearson, Homes Editor with Luxe Interiors + Design, along with Susan Ferrier, & Kristin Kong, both exceptional Atlanta based interior designers. The summit consisted of a panel of the guest speakers including Nancy Epstein, founder & CEO of Artistic Tile. Round table discussions ensued and dinner with a cocktail hour proved worthwhile. We were honored to attend and learned a great deal about tile and business practices.
Alas, one of the largest and best known tile expos around. Coverings! Every tile vendor attending tried their best to present their tile in the most creative, eye-catching way possible so that the attendees would visit their booth. We saw many different and interesting vendors including our own. We made sure to see our current dealers for a look at new products they were soon unveiling. These included Stone Impressions, Lunada Bay, Marmoluna, Adex, Tempesta, Elon, Realstone, Glazzio, Topcu, Original Style, Ardex, & Schluter. We walked more in one day then we could imagine and would do it all over again in a heartbeat!
Carolina Tile & Stone is grateful for the experience & looks forward to sharing this information with the customers we serve in Charlotte, NC and the surrounding areas–Concord, Cornelius, Davidson, Huntersville & Lake Norman.
