Here are some highlights from the HD Boutique Show this week in Miami.
Summit International Flooring
Summit International Flooring showcased 3 new innovative products at this year’s HD Boutique – Feng Shui Flextile, Van Besouw, and CLASS. I love all three but the CLASS “Leather” Rubber Tiles are my favorite of the bunch. The base compound is composed of 22% recycled rubber and is constructed to show patina and wear, characteristic of natural leathers. CLASS is available in 6 rich colors – Chocolate, Caramel, Almond, Charcoal, Greystone and Chianti.
The Betona Booth caught my eye with their Flexible Concrete Tile. The Betona tile is made up of 50% post-consumer recycled windshield glass and the manufacturing process used to produce it sends -zero- waste to landfill. They won’t tell me how they made it flexible but the product is concrete and contains no acrylics. The image below is obviously not a media kit photo but a sample I took from the show.
Centiva introduced a mass-produced flooring product that is so revolutionary each tile is unique. Stria is a beautiful vinyl tile available in 8 colorations with metallic pigments for added visual depth. It is constructed from 51% recycled material and comes with their 20 year Commercial warranty. Like Centiva’s other products, it can be taken back at the end of its life and made into new flooring.
