It seems the best and most fascinating love affairs are those which either:
a) Start slowly (we’re just friends) and build up (friends with benefits) to culminate in a long and entangled romance (benefits and more)
b) Come upon you suddenly and out of nowhere and consume your life to the point of
slight major excessiveness
My love affair with tile has not been of the a) variety. About a year ago, I couldn’t give two shakes if the tile on my wall was Chinese, marble, or cardboard as long as it looked decent and didn’t get in my way.
And then I took a job in a tile store.
Now, as with anyone who works in a niche industry, it’s impossible NOT to notice tile. Everywhere I go, it’s the first thing I see (Hmmm…there is some beautiful hand-cut black glass mosaic in this restroom. And that floor must have cost a fortune! 5/8″ tumbled dark emperador marble!).
You get the point.
While you may be wondering if I intend to use this blog as a shameless tactic to bring myself new clients into my store, I would like to assure you that while I am not above those types of maneuvers, that is not the purpose of this blog. I will be posting from any national and international brands which I know, through industry experience, are of the highest quality.
Warning: some of the tile I plan to showcase may spark a love affair of your own.
