Playground from Ergon

Playground is a new series from Ergon with two distinct finishes that play nice together. Playground Paint resembles a stained concrete with a linear striation. It coordinates with Playground Resin, which has an overall washed stained concrete. These unique washes and color palettes perfectly complement each other.

We will be stocking Playground Paint in Tokyo White, Berlin Grey and New York Sand, all available in an 18”x36” format. Playground Resin will be available special order from the U.S. Depot, 2- 3 weeks plus freight.

Stunning “Wood” Plank Porcelain Tiles

One of the hottest trends in the last couple of years is high quality porcelain tiles that are made to replicate the look of hardwood flooring. Hardwood flooring is stunning, but can have some limitations in certain applications. Wood can scratch from sand at entryways and can warp and discolor in wet applications like bathrooms. It can also scratch from your pet’s toenails or ding if you accidentally drop a glass in your kitchen.

Porcelain tile is one of the most durable flooring surfaces you can use. It is stain resistant and very difficult to chip or break. It’s so durable, it’s frequently used in shopping malls and airports! If you love the look of hardwood, have concerns about dings, scratches or wet areas, from your pets, kids or everyday living, porcelain wood plank tiles are the perfect choice for you. From elegant and refined to casual and rustic, there is a porcelain plank tile that will fit into your design scheme. Concerned that a porcelain floor might be too cold? There are fantastic in-floor heat options from Nuheat, which has the longest warranty on the market – 25 years!

Here’s a gallery of some of favorite wood looks!

Concrete from Negev

Concrete is a stunning replica of a minimalistic and stained concrete look. Both durable and simplistic, this colored base porcelain is perfect for residential and most commercial applications.Available in seven colors: Black, Brown, Grey, Ash Grey, Light Taupe, Silver & White in 12″x24″ and 24″x24″ and coordinating trim.
