On Friday evening, the Casa Ceramica team attended the Tile Association Gala Dinner Awards, of which we are thrilled to have won both catergories in ‘Best Retail Showroom Category‘ and ‘Best Use of Tile in a Domestic Environment – Bathrooms‘.
The Gala Dinner and Presentations were held at the Radisson Blu Portman Square Hotel in London. Many of the leading companies in the industry attended such as manufacturers, contractors and distributors. All finalists were there celebrating the winners and runners up at the event.
The increasingly high profile TTA Awards once again attracted some of the biggest names in the industry as event sponsors, with the likes of Tilemaster Adhesives, Ardex and Bellota. Our two awards marked a great achievement for Casa Ceramica and with many more exciting projects in the pipeline, we are hoping this will be the one of many over the coming year.
Best Retail Showroom
In 2015, Casa Ceramica decided to embark on a project that would see our company produce a level of showroom not widely seen here in the UK and certainly not outside of London. Having been established in Preston for 30 years, Casa Ceramica relocated to our brand new Showroom in Manchester last Spring. Our purpose of expanding to a larger floor space was for our customers to visualise the different and innovative ways our products can be utilised internally and externally around a property, and to display the largest tiles ever produced worldwide (1.6×3.2m), which are being taken by storm in the current tile movement.
Best Use of Tile in a Domestic Environment – Bathroom
We put forward images of a newly developed family home in Yorkshire. Our tiles were to play a big role throughout this incredible home, although the master suite was one area they wanted to make a statement. To achieve this, we used our Classic Marble book-match slabs, mimicking a natural Italian Statuario marble. The beautiful marble veining flowing through each tile, allowed us to seamlessly wrap a full bathroom wall. For the floor area, our Classic Wood White Chevron was used. The traditional Parisian pattern gives a feel of calmness, style and sophistication, which works flawlessly with the Marble wall.
The gorgeous pottery and fittings were supplied by CP Hart Manchester, who worked on the whole project to help create all the beautiful bathrooms. In this room, a mixture of Italian and German fittings by Gess & Jorger work fantastically with our tiles. Image courtesy of Gail Secker.
