Los Angeles, Calif. -- Emser Tile was honored with a 2018 “Best Of” SURFACES award for Style and Design, co- sponsored by Informa and Floor Covering News. The award, which recognizes the company’s Lakewood and Lakehouse tile series, was announced during The International Surface Event (TISE) 2018 in Las Vegas.

“Every year, it is very apparent the incredible amount of work that exhibitors put towards creating products, setting up displays and developing experiences for attendees,” said Amie Gilmore, CEM, Informa Exhibitions, show director for TISE. “Their diligent efforts improve the offerings our industries are able to provide the world and we are honored to award these efforts each year. Congratulations!”

Reflecting the influences of rustic design and current trend of wood-look surfaces, the Emser collections intertwine to breathe life into contemporary surfaces. Each offered in 8x34 in. glazed porcelain tile planks, Lakewood grounds surfaces with distinct wooden tones that evoke rich detail and texture, while Lakehouse acts as an accent motif to infuse bold color variation.

“It is an honor to be recognized in the category of style and design for these intriguing collections,” said Barbara Haaksma, vice president of marketing for Emser Tile. “Emser Tile consistently looks to bring a refreshing approach to design, and these wood-look tile series defy boundaries by offering customizable installation opportunities with striking detail.”
