LAS VEGAS, NV - The Installation Design Showcase will continue at Coverings 2011, which takes place from March 14 to 17 at The Sands Expo and Convention Center in Las Vegas. A combined live-action demonstration and exhibit, the showcase will feature conceptual bath vignettes by three leading designers, and their creations will take shape in full view of Coverings attendees as some of the most experienced tile contractors working today ply their skills to the installation. The National Tile Contractors Association, a Coverings co-sponsor, helped to spearhead this initiative. The build begins a few days ahead of the official opening of the show, and will be completed by end of day on March 15. The exhibit will remain through the expo’s close.

The program also is an added showcase for some of the newest and most notable tile and stone products, grouts and other essential installation materials from Coverings 2011 exhibitors, including Ceramic Tiles of Italy, Crossville, Lamosa and Mapei. Helping out with the necessary tools are European Tile Masters, QEP Company and Rubi Tools, while H.B. Fuller Construction Products and U.S. Gypsum are contributing the basic building needs. As for the bathroom fixtures and fittings, TOTO and Hansgrohe/AXOR have generously provided their products.

Ali Azhar, co-host of HGTV’s “Design on a Dime,” is among the design talent who is fashioning a Showcase space. He is planning a bath retreat that he describes as “spa meets nightclub - it will be edgy and modern, possibly even featuring a fireplace.” Responsible for the installation is Artcraft Granite, Marble & Tile, Mesa, AZ, which took on the challenge last year, as well.

Phoenix-based designer Annette Denham, who has her own design practice and is in her first term as president of that city’s National Kitchen & Bath Association chapter, also is onboard for the Showcase. She has envisioned a home spa retreat, but one that reflects a fusion of classic and contemporary. A team from Lambert Tile & Stone, Eagle, CO, will step in to handle the installation.

LCY Designs principal Laura Yober, ASID, from Orange County, CA, is designing an “aging in place” bath, imagining a space for “grandma” that’s practical and accessible but drenched in plenty of “wow.” The installation will be a collaboration between Welch Tile and Marble, Kent, MI, and Cox Tile, San Antonio, TX.
All of the materials and products featured in the Installation Design Showcase will have an after-life benefitting Tile Partners for Humanity.
