Bios tile from Casalgrande Padana.

Ceramic Tiles of Italy will be featured at the upcoming International Contemporary Furniture Fair at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York City. Thirteen manufacturers in the Italian tile segment, including many first time exhibitors, will display their latest products at the show, May 15-18 at booth #1420. ICFF annually attracts more than 25,000 design professionals from all over the world.

The 2010 Ceramic Tiles of Italy booth will be designed by Italian architects Dante Donegani & Giovanni Lauda of D&L Design. It will showcase tile collections ranging from high-tech to hand-made, and vignettes from Appiani, Bardelli, Casalgrande Padana, Sant’Agostino, Impronta Ceramiche, Rondine, Tagina, Etruria Design, MAPEI, FAP, Settecento, Refin and Imola. In addition, Florim, the parent brand of Rex Ceramiche Artistiche, Floor Gres, Casa Dolce Casa, Casamood and Cerim, will be on site with a nearby exhibit space.  

In addition, Ceramic Tiles of Italy will once again organize a citywide dealer campaign. “We wanted to take advantage of the energy around ICFF and show New Yorkers that they can find Italian tile all over the city,” said Vittorio Borelli, president of the commission for promotional activities and tradeshows of Confindustria Ceramica, the Italian association of ceramic manufacturers.

“We were thrilled with the positive response from the 2009 campaign, from consumers and participants alike, and are looking forward to this year’s event,” added Aniello Musella, trade commissioner for North America, Italian Trade Commission. Like last year, eye-catching flags bearing the Ceramic Tiles of Italy signature logo will be placed outside the entrances of participating Manhattan-based distributors of Italian tile.  For an up-to-date list of dealers,
