Infusing Pattern Play into the 2019 International Builders’ Show

Posted by Emser Tile on Feb 20, 2019 4:47:16 PM

The creative use of pattern can bring a uniquely beautiful design perspective and truly help make a house a home. From dynamic backsplashes to texture-rich flooring, tile can infuse pattern play into residential interiors and exteriors alike, without compromising durability. As such, we are excited to present the builder industry with an ever-expanding portfolio of on-trend tile and stone collections at the International Builders’ Show (IBS) in Las Vegas, Nevada, February 19-21. 

“Emser Tile collections are specifically created and curated to inspire the builder market to heighten their own design visions with unique patterning and design flexibility,” shares Crista Tekstra, Senior Brand Manager for Emser Tile. “From understated and nuanced patterns to bold and vivid motifs, Emser Tile helps support builders as they bring unique homes to market.”

Defining 2019 residential design aesthetics, Emser Tile’s range of new and stalwart products provide builders with sensible, easy-to-incorporate stone and tile looks that enhance any home while meeting a host of design preferences. More than 40 new product series for the industry will be on display at booth C7237.

Emser Tile is featuring the following collections, among others, at the show:
