Coverings Installation Design Showcase To Celebrate Leading Installation And Design Talent

Experience the visions of talented designers come to life during the Coverings Installation Design Showcase (IDS). During the live-action demonstration/exhibit, sponsored by The Home Depot, master installers will build full-scale vignettes from April 18 – 21 at McCormick Place in Chicago. Designed to capture different moods and aesthetics that can be achieved with tile/stone materials, they also demonstrate how advanced techniques affect the overall look and performance of the space.



Alena Capra Designs will incorporate a number of trends in tile, with surfacing from a roster of Ceramics of Italy manufacturers, to create a chic retail boutique environment. Capra is partnered with a team from Artcraft Granite, Marble & Tile Co.



Healing Environments is committed to creating healthy environments that promote healing and inner peace. Their spa lobby focuses on sustainability and incorporates stone/tile from Crossville for a synergistic space. Trostrud Mosaic & Tile will complete the project’s elements with the highest degree of quality and technical accuracy.



FGM Architects was inspired by the new options of shapes, sizes and finishes offered by StonePeak to demonstrate the myriad of ways tile can be used beyond the expected inside the golf clubhouse bar & lounge. The design team will create warmth in a space that incorporates all hard surface tile with their installation team from Welch Tile and Marble.



A passion for travel and public spaces that delight, charm and play with emotions inspired the design team from Architecture Is Fun. The team will create a social space that is dynamic yet intimate, and serves an environment where visitors can ‘play and stay’ with their boutique hotel lobby. The installation team from Grazzini Brothers will work with a variety of materials from Florim including supersized porcelain juxtaposed against jewel-sized insets.
