Last week, Emser Tile was honored to accept 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 2018 in Las Vegas.

“We are proud that The International Surface Event is the annual home for manufacturers and suppliers to meet face-to-face with their customers, their friends and their industry peers,” shared Amie Gilmore, CEM, Show Director, The International Surface Event, Informa Exhibitions. “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. 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 trends prioritizing wood-look surfaces, these collections intertwine to breathe life into contemporary surfaces. Each offered in 8” x 34” 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.
