ABOUT US COUNTRY FLOORS Country Floors is considered a foremost style-setter in the ceramic tile and stone industry and is the first choice of many architects, interior designers and savvy consumers. The company was founded in 1964 by New York still life photographer Norman Karlson on the idea that design integrity could be achieved and maintained through artistry and uncompromising concern for quality. Karlson felt there was a void in many areas of the ceramic and stone market. Originally, he imported tiles from Europe that had rarely been seen in America. Eventually, the company became involved in every aspect of the creative process including the evolution of each design concept to the finished product. Through the years, the company has supplied tile and stone for countless pre-eminent residential design projects and is consistently featured in every important design magazine. Famous for its vast collection of the finest designs from the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries, Country Floors also offers a large selection of plain glaze colors, a dozen or so options in contemporary glass tile, a wide variety of mosaics, high-style natural stone and handmade terra cotta. Many of Country Floors tiles and natural stone pavers are most adaptable to the requirements of hospitality and commercial designers. With headquarters in New York, Country Floors maintains showrooms in three North American markets (New York, NY; Los Angeles, CA; San Francisco, CA) and dealers that service all areas beyond the major cities. As a note: We at Country Floors hold design integrity through artistry, originality and quality as our benchmark and constantly strive for improvement.
