    The Semi Precious Collection is made from natural stone pieces such as quartz, amethyst, and agate that are bonded with resin and formed into slabs. Panels are then cut into large-format sizes measuring 96 inches by 48 inches. Pieces can be back lit and used for cladding, countertops, and vanities.

    DUROCK cement board Next Gen is made with a proprietary aggregate, which results in a panel that is 25% lighter than competing products. Moisture- and mold-resistant, the panel holds screws better and results in a 20% faster installation.

    Bamboo is a glass tile collection that offers color and texture. The fused-glass line is produced with the color baked in, so it will not fade over time. Tiles are back-filled with mortar for easy installation and come in eight standard colors and over 100 custom colors.

    The Sculpted collection of tiles brings serious texture to accent walls. Ideal on an accent wall, the individual tiles measure 2 inches by 10 inches and come in three colors. Pieces can be positioned to create different looks.

  • Ennovage




    Typical metal registers can mar your flooring installations and your architecture, but the company’s floor vents and registers sit flush with 3/4-inch hardwood floor. Registers offer two-way diffusion and are grooved on the outside to accommodate most 3/4-inch tongue and groove flooring. The line comes in a variety of sizes and species such as white and red oak, Santos mahogany, and bamboo.

  • Sonite




    Arabesque is the marriage between Eastern- and Western-style art forms, the manufacturer says. The collection features various patterns and is suitable for indoor vertical and horizontal applications.





    SpectraLOCK Pro is the new and improved version of the manufacturer’s flagship product. It’s brighter and whiter than the old formula and offers even better stain resistance and color consistency.

Las Vegas—SURFACES, the annual floor-covering show, and StonExpo/Marmomacc, the largest international stone show in the U.S., are known as events for all things stone and for anything that covers the floor, including traditional ceramic tiles, carpeting, and wood. But the annual three-day event is also a showcase for products that inject bolts of color and texture into the mix.

In addition to highly attractive (though predictable) stone and marble, the show offered mixed-media mosaics of granite, marble, glass, and metal; large-format and textured glass field tiles; and boldly colored recycled-content ceramic.

Crossville introduced the Color by Numbers wall tile collection featuring coordinating paint colors from Benjamin Moore’s Aura paint line. Voguebay showed large glass wall tiles in various patterns and textures. And Pera Tile showed Centura, a new collection of decorative stone mosaics with genuine gold leaf engraving.

Here are some of the notable offerings from day two of the show.
