Porcelanosa has been recognized by the International Interior Design Association (IIDA), with a first place award in the category of flooring for porcelain hardwood. The new Alaska grey tile design from Porcelanosa’s PAR-KER® Porcelain Hardwood collection was awarded with the Award of Excellence for its “distressed wood” look and design.

“Besides being environmentally friendly and highly resistant to bacteria and allergens,” the tile can be used in any setting or application, due to its inability to scuff and warp like traditional hardwood flooring and durability to withstand the natural elements, the company notes.

Further, Porcelanosa is expanding of its Orange County location in Anaheim, CA, with a major renovation that is expected to more than double the size of its showroom from 4,000 to over 10,000 square feet.
