Country Floors is considered the foremost style setter in the ceramic tile and stone industries. It is the first choice of many architects, interior designers and discerning consumers for both Commercial and Residential project

Norman Karlson founded Country Floors in 1964. He was an avid connoisseur, collector and author of historical ceramic tiles. During his many travels in Europe as a professional photographer, he admired the beauty and artistry of tiled walls and floors everywhere he went; Lisbon, the Amalfi coast in Italy, the Alhambra in Spain. Returning to the United States, this enthusiasm continued when he became interested in American Art tiles. He traveled throughout the United States interviewing and cataloging the vast diversity of these tile makers. His fascination with this art form is authenticated today in the Ceramic Collections made by the finest European and American artisans featured in Country Floors showrooms.

In 2010, Marbles Systems, a leader in high quality natural stone products, purchased Country Floors. In it’s tenure, a dynamic selection of Natural Stone products have been integrated into the Country Floors assortment. Quarried and processed to exacting specifications using the latest manufacturing technology, the stone collections feature a wide variety or stone types, sizes, designs and surface finishes. Today, Country Floors showcases the finest Ceramic tiles, handcrafted in both Europe and the United States and a full compliment of solid and decorative Natural Stone tiles, Porcelain tiles, Terracotta and Glass tiles.

Janeen Algren Swing, an interior designer based in Los Angeles, was given the opportunity to renovate the kitchen in a fine Old Hancock Park Estate in Hollywood. The owners wanted a French inspired communal space open to the garden and reminiscent of Claude Monet’s kitchen in Giverny. Janeen specified CHEZ MONET™ from Country Floors. The Walls are tiled in 4 x 4″ Deco #12 with 4 x 6″ Borders in Blue and white.The result above is beautiful, friendly and inviting. See more from our CHEZ MONET™ Collection here.
