May 17th was the date when ELLE DECOR Magazine in conjunction with Country Floors, had a wonderful promo bash at their store right around the corner from Union Square, to showcase the very high end ceramic, glass and stone products that have made Country Floors the top choice of architects and interior designers when catering to the needs of their best clients.

Country Floors is considered a foremost style-setter in the ceramic tile and stone industry. Founded in 1964 by New York still life photographer Norman Karlson, he imported tiles from Europe that had rarely been seen in America. Eventually, the company became involved in every aspect of the creative process, including the evolution of each design concept to the finished product.

Through the years, the company has been consistently featured in every important design magazine. Famous for its vast collection of the finest designs from the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries, Country Floors also offers a large selection of plain glaze colors, handmade terra cotta, a dozen or so options in contemporary glass tile, a wide variety of mosaics, high-style natural stone and an extensive selection of specialty tiles from historic, intricately hand-crafted tiles to modern and contemporary styles made by domestic and overseas artists.
