There was plenty of wow factor plus creative, inspiring ideas imparted among the four Coverings 2012 exhibitors who were named to receive this year’s Best in Show booth awards. The judges conferred the honors during day three of the four-day annual tile and stone conference at the Orange County Convention Center.
Cerdomus received the Overall Best in Show title, winning with a space that enveloped visitors in the drama of black and was supercharged with a hip, club-like ambiance. Its hub was a working lounge of dozens of modern white club chairs where visitors and company representatives could conduct their business in a comfortable, casual setting. The reflective qualities of the brand’s own flooring added to the energy created by the vibrant contrast between the black and white theme. Amid this scene, traditional racks were used for showing the product options. Together with a zone of private conference rooms flanking one wall, the message of this booth was, ‘Let’s get down to business.’
Tau also capped its Coverings appearance with a win. The company made a statement in simplicity with an open all-access construction. The design provided the perfect setting for its new onyx lookalike porcelain, Onice.
