Spring is rumored to be here and that can only mean warm weather is just around the corner. Most parts of North America crawled through a pretty miserable winter, but the end is in sight.
So in anticipation of warmer weather, I came across two new products that scream summer to me.
First up is a new tile series from Hastings Tile and Bath. What's tile have to do with summer? Well, take a look.
Hastings' PLI series looks like distressed wood even though it's made from porcelain. There are three colorways available; white, black and brown. There is a natural variation in each piece and it does look for all the world like wood decking. The big difference is that it's very nearly permanent and is wear-rated for heavy trraffic areas and can withstand even commercial uses. It's also made from 40% pre-consumer ceramic recycled content by weight.
The PLI series is available from Hastings' New York or Chicago showroom or through any of their authorized dealers in the US.
Second up is another beauty from Stone Forest.
That's carved from a single piece of marble and comes in either Silver Travertine or Travertino Romano. It's as much a piece of sculpture as it is a piece of furniture. It can be used indoors or out and if anybody want to make me really happy on my birthday in May, I think this would do it.
Check out the rest of Stone Forest's wonders on their website here.
Summer will be here eventually. Right?
