Attendees will be treated to a series of design related films, speakers, and parties. Presented by the Louisiana Architectural Foundation, this festival will provide great opportunities for Horizon Tile to get to know a new design community in one of the most unique cities in America.
Teams were revealed February 11th where designers from PDR were assigned the theme Cubism/Picasso for the Avant Art Fashion Show.
About The Event: Product Runway is an avant-garde couture fashion design competition influenced by the concept of the hit realty TV show Project Runway. Teams of interior design and architecture professionals participate in a fashion design competition creating handmade garments out of standard architectural finish materials such as glass, tile, carpet and wood.
Requirements: Each of the 20 competing teams has been assigned one hard material and one soft material, which must collectively make up 80% of their final garment. With this year’s theme: Avant Art, each team will be assigned a specific art movement with a correlating artist, as well as a piece of work from their artist that shows a true representation of that particular movement. The majority of a completed garment (approx. 60%) must be made of their hard and soft goods that are as close to the team’s assigned art movement and artist.
Benefitting Houston Furniture Bank: IIDA Houston City Center’s 8th Annual Product Runway benefits the Houston Furniture Bank, a non-profit organization that is often referred to as the “charity of charities.” The mission of the Furniture Bank is to provide a more comfortable and livable environment, making empty houses homes for Houston’s needy families

While there isn’t snow in Texas right now, there is an abundance this time of year in many places around the world. Like the French Alps, for example. Artist Simon Beck creates amazing patterns in snow.
These impressive creations bring to mind some of our white marbles and patterns available in a variety of grey and white stones.
As we all settle back into work after enjoying our Thanksgiving, we thought it was time for some tile inspiration to get the design juices flowing!
This ceiling detail from a recent Dwell post brought to mind a couple of things. The beautiful wood used throughout this home is reminiscent of our LIFE collection. The natural beauty of the wood grain is produced in porcelain planks, creating a very real effect, but without the maintenance of real wood. But, really, how beautiful is that ceiling??
The next thought this image brought to mind? HERRINGBONE and CHEVRON patterns! How fun are these selections? Click on the images to see additional color options and sizes!
Seeing this post from Design-Dautore.com showing muted colors reminded me of some of our latest tile series to be introduced.
Offering muted colors, subtle tone on tone movement, these options can aid in creating a soothing environment for your next project. Smooth concrete looks, textured wood looks, subtle metallic colors all paired with muted paint colors create a sophisticated space.

As design aficianados we are familiar with the use of color systems, and Horizon now offers a tile series that was created with theNatural Color System in mind!Cromie
is a tile collection of Warm, Neutral and Cold colors using the NCS System
which is a “logical colour notation system which builds on how the human being sees colour. While other colour systems are based on arbitrary numeric series, NCS classification describes colours exactly as we see them and it is capable of giving an accurate notation to any of the 10 million colours we can perceive.”
Using Color and Nuance, the NCS System is based on the six colors the human eye identifies as elementary: White (W) Black (S), Yellow (Y), Red (R), Blue (B) and Green (G)
Using this system, Cromie offers colors with a chromatic relationship to the NCS System.
