Metal Effects & Athena series feature stylish contemporary looks
Daltile, the largest U.S. manufacturer and distributor of ceramic tile and natural stone, is introducing two new product lines and adding four new colors to one of its most popular collections at Surfaces 2009.
“Contemporary looks continue to dominate today’s design landscape, both commercially and residentially, and our two newest collections certainly fit the bill. The organic beauty of oxidized metal is paired with shimmer, and stylish square edges in our Metal Effects series,” said Lori Kirk-Rolley, senior marketing director at Daltile. “And our Athena Mosaics collection brings the very popular look of ½” mosaics to life with a veritable rainbow of colors and color blends.”
These new products will be featured prominently during Surfaces 2009 at Booth 3415. Daltile representatives will be on-hand to provide visitors with more information about the company’s new product additions, as well as many of its most popular series.
