Daltile and KeysGranite Open Design Studio in Miami Market
May 14, 2015
Daltile, a brand of ceramic, porcelain, glass, metal and natural stone tile products, has opened the doors to a new design studio in Miami. The 4,600-sq.-ft., two-story studio space, complete with tile library and communal and private workspaces, is accompanied by a KeysGranite stone and slab yard. Providing a variety of tile and stone products from both Daltile and KeysGranite brands, the design studio supports the local architectural and design community by providing a unique single-source resource for products and services needed to satisfy clientele.
“The space provides not only a place to view and select product, but a professional environment where designers and architects can feel comfortable staying to work for a few hours or bringing their customers in for consultation,” said April Wilson, director, brand marketing, Daltile.
Precious and exotic stones, as well as large-format tile options, are displayed prominently because of the high demand among local designers. At the center of the space, a custom chandelier made with tile pieces hangs over a large meeting table. Used for networking and local design association events, the adjacent hospitality area features a stunning book-matched Blue Macauba quartzite backsplash and bright white quartz countertops.
Connected to the studio, the KeysGranite slab yard houses hundreds of slabs for selection from exotics to granite and quartz. This offering allows designers to utilize the space as a multi-faceted hub for tile and stone specification from floor to ceiling.
The Miami studio, located at 8788 N.W. 27th Street, is the fourth Daltile design studio to open its doors, joining Dallas, Philadelphia and San Francisco as a regional design hub for the brand.
